Custom skybox shader

Jump to: navigation, search

The Custom Skybox shader introduced in Space Editor Pack 08 produces a realistic night sky and procedural two dimensional clouds. It is very effective, and very easily employed, thanks to the provided example procedural skybox. Simply slot the skybox (found in Assets/Sample Art/Adam-CloudSkybox) titled 'Sample Cloud Skybox' in the 'SkyBox' slot of your 'Lighting' window.

It should be pretty much good to go, though there are settings that one might wish to explore.

Additionally, the shader code for the shader used in this skybox is available in the assets for the sake of review or modification.
