Here is mah first skybox texture!

It is based on hydro's color scheme so that's why it's named hydrolands, but looking at it twice makes me realize how unalike it is :P

The download file contains a skybox folder you should extract to your materials folder

It also contains the vmf with the light entities.

If you use this in your map please credit me so i wont cry myself to sleep. After all, i am a credit to team


edit: just realized the pics dont show much lololol

I was coincidentally looking for something just like this. I'll give it a go.

Whoa, super nice! What was your process for making it, might I ask?

Consider it considered.

I love this. It gives off a really nice early morning feel. Nice work.

Very nice texture!

As said, it gives a really great morning feel to the test maps in those screenshots. It fits in with the other TF2 skyboxes very nicely and I look forward to seeing this used in the maps still to come.

Keep up the good work!

So I was already building a small map to test the Sniper stuff and figured I'd pop this in. Always room in this world for one more skybox, right? And... well, I am in awe. This actually does a better job of concealing where the "corners" are than many of the official skyboxes do! Which is awesome. Well rendered too; fits the theme of TF2 nicely. And including the light_environment info was helpful too.

Definitely wanting to use this now.

Very nice skybox. Sadly I 'bined the hydro themed map I was working on, but I'll definitely keep this skybox in mind as it is very nice. Great work on the colours, especially those around the sun.
