    So I'm trying to make something as close as possible to the clouds from minecraft. I wanted to get the same movement as well, just slowly drifting.

    But, I have no I idea how I would do this. At first I thought I would make it with some path tracks, but since the brush would have to teleport back to the starting path, it would look really strange.

    I was just wondering if there was a way that a brush could clip back seamlessly in an infinite loop? Or if you guys have any idea of a way to replicate this. Also, I was thinking of maybe just one brush and make a custom cloud texture. But the Shadows wouldn't look right on the brush.

    Anyway, any help or ideas would be amazing, thanks.

    If you do it in the skybox you can have it drift into fog, then loop back. (that is, doing it with path-tracks)

    Use two trains, each the same area of the skybox.
    When the first scrolls off, it can teleport back to the beginning while the 2nd one is visible, and vice versa. All teleporting would take place outside the skybox and unseen.
