    Hello,

    I have been trying to get my skybox to work and have hit some problems. Namely it seems to be off center. I have followed various skybox tutorials and it looks find, just not where I expect it to be. Am I being dumb or am I thinking a sky box is something its not?

    What I am trying to acheive is water with various bits sticking out the water. I have placed the sky_camera at 0 0 0 built the various elements. Then stuck an item at each of the compass points of N,S,E and W from the camera. But when I run the game the items are all grouped off to one corner of the map. This is just a test map so it is not exactly pretty. :)

    The camera does not go at 0 0 0, but rather the sky camera position inside the 3D skybox box represents the relative location of 0 0 0 in the real world.
