Introduction

A common requirement for a 3D scene is to have a sky that is always at infinite distance. One way of achieving this is via a skybox. This tutorial shows you how to do this using Blender, b2cs and Crystal Space.

Creating your skybox

* Create a cube in blender
* Scale the cube so it is bigger than everything else in your scene
* Flip normals on the cube so that they face inwards
* Texture the inside of the cube with your skybox textures
* Set following parameters on the cube:

section:general

 camera: true

section:render

 lighting: false
 priority: sky
 zmode: zfill

section:lighter

 vertexlight: true


Note: there is currently a bug in lighter2 that causes it to ignore the nolighting flag. One workaround is to remove lighter2 entries for the skybox from the world file after export.
