Refinery skybox

Recommended Posts

I don't know anything about making skyboxes, but I have made 'sky textures' which are 128x256 sized images used in vanilla doom that repeat horizontally.

I know about that, I was thinking that I could just build the skybox but it would have to be extremely large and the height would be screwed since sky viewpoint enlarges the things infront of it.

if you are using zdoom or a zdoom-based port, you can make a skybox like that by making a sector outside the level and making those spires/etc as if it were part of the actual level. then add a thing in that sector called "skybox viewpoint" to make it a skybox. all sectors in the level with the F_SKY1 flat will now show that as a sky instead of the normal sky texture.

That I know also, it was what I said that I could build it up but when created a dummy sector the things showed in it are enlarged. That's why I want a texture skybox e.g. like when you create mountain textures so I would want something like that but refinery.

Edit: for example I have built this little (unfinished) area: http://img7.imageshack.us/i/screenshotdoom200910271.png/ and I would want to have something like this as a skybox http://www.energyinsights.net/cgi-script/csArticles/uploads/128/Oil%20Refinery.jpg behind the fence
