What were the skies like when you were young?

Hellfire has started making some custom skies: check out the stars, clouds (little fluffy coulds?), asteroids, and more...

Nah, Hellfire will probably concentrate on space skies the most. That is, if he finishes his other tileset and creatures and stuff.

Landscape skies would be easy enough to do, but Orleron
is right.
I have tons of other stuff on my plate I need to finish up first
The Dracon Model is getting animations as we speak so I should have pics soon for it

I suggested landscape skyboxes too ;) not that I need them, but I think they'd add tremendously to the atmosphere, particularly mountain ones: real rendered mountains in the foreground with misty peaks painted on the skyboxes in the background poking out behind them...

Ugg, to many cool ideas, I broke down and made a Terrain sky test. Tell me what you think. ... sc&start=0

The mountain in that one looks a bit blurry, but that's probably because you're only fooling around. The problem with these terrain sky thingies if you'd have to make 2 skies for each one: day and night. Else the mountain would disappear at night. :shock:

Just a thought, you might want to obscure the bottoms more through fog and cover that area with an effect that reacts more like the blurred fog(therefore blends into the background) rather than trying to have a landscape between the mountains and the ground.

Very nice start though.
