    I'm going to need a better space skybox texture for cp_space_station. All of the current ones are in deep space, too far from Earth, or don't fit the TF2 style.

    Requirements:
    -Must look like the observer is in a feasible earth orbit orbit.
    -Needs the sun visible, so my light_environment and env_sun have a place to shine from.
    -Earth needs to look TF2 styled (somewhat animated/blurred, not entirely photo-realistic)
    -Moon is optional
    -Appropriate sized LDR and HDR Versions

    I will give credit in my readme or briefing file.

    Thanks! ;)

    So I assume you'll be wanting the Earth to be visible as well?

    Basically, you look through a window and see the curve of the earth below you.

    I have done this once. It is not hard, it is not easy.

    Just saying, but the env_sun doesn't shine. env_sun creates a sprite of the sun.
