Sky Boxes
« on: December 03, 2021, 08:43:36 am »

I have no luck with skyboxes. I always end up with a seam. I'm dropping the images in correct order, but it never lines up properly. I've used the same skyboxes in a few game engines and didn't have an issue. What am I doing wrong?

If you use a cubemap texture for the background you should be able to eliminate the seams.

First load a cube map texture. Then in the Scene editor, in the Scene->Properties dialog, click the Environment button and choose a Cubemap Texture for the background image.

I've attached an example project. Look at "scene01". I didn't include all the files for the other scenes.
