Hey All,

I'm currently working on a map set on an island, so at any point in the map where the player is more than ~32 grid points above sea level, they can see below the 180 degree mark on the sky-box (the stretched ugly part). It isn't a major deal, except there is one point in my map where you can travel up a large tower, and at the top, this is VERY clearly visible. Is there anyway to make the skybox have a larger "FOV" so to speak? If I have to make my own skybox, It would be worth it, but I absolutely hate the look of the stretched skybox from that height.

Thanks! :D

If Java had true garbage collection, most programs would delete themselves upon execution.

The skybox cone should never be visible from any point in the map. Cover it up with surrounding terrain or don't use a skybox model.

I'm actually not even using a sky-box model. I defined one in the world-spawn (seems to always work better for me in larger maps). Unfortunately I can't cover it up with scenery, It's a massive tower, and I'd really prefer to keep it that tall

If you could PM me a screenshot of the specific visual issue I might be able to provide more specific advise.
