If one uses a light source within the 3d skybox, would it be applied to the area inside the skybox?
I'm pretty sure it would. The 3d skybox also effects lighting in the 3d world, as a heads up.
I'm pretty sure it wouldn't. I think i've read it somewhere.
If it does happen to work, I think you might be able to create a sort of day/night cycle. Create a 2d skybox without a sun anywhere, and then create a light in the 3d skybox and have it move from one side of the map to the other, disappear, and then reappear on the other side again.
Try it. It might work, it might not. You don't know if you don't try.
Name it dev_night_day.
I would, but I'm extremely new with mapping and have almost NO idea how to do a 3d skybox, even though I looked at a tutorial. And then there's the problem of me not really knowing how to do proper lighting. I suppose I still could TRY it though.
Wouldn't work. The source engine doesn't have dynamic lighting like that.
Dang, makes me sad. Oh well, thanks for the answer guys!
