    That is the mountain in all valve skyboxes. They just reposition the sun and change a few colours each time they need a mountain.

    i like the exaggeration personally, makes it seem more cartoonish

    It looks less prominent to me, though that might just be the angle.

    I'm aware. That wasn't what I meant. :p

    Mayhaps. I guess it depends on what it looks like in game.

    Speaking of Cartoonish, the Grinch lives in this skybox.

    I did, in a way. Boylee gave me a bit of a reference that I worked from, but it doesn't really look much like it anymore xD

    Boylee also set me up with a Photoshop doc that uses the new-ish 3D properties of Photoshop to project the skybox on a sphere and then it uses camera positions to create the skybox. I might direct Boylee in here to better describe how it's done. I'm not 100% sure I could have done it myself without his help. :p

    please please please explain @Boylee , this is something i'd love to be able to do. Perhaps a forum post rather than letting it get buried in the wip thread :)

    That's waaaaaaaay better. Although to be fair, the texture doesn't have to be that low-res.
    I also think the glacier (if that's what the green stuff is) could be a bit more white-ish so it has some more contrast.

    Please shoot me a PM in a couple of days if I've not done it already. I'm busy on clifftop ATM, but I will happily upload the PSD with a how to thread. I had to figure it out for myself as I couldn't find any easy way of creating the spherical deformation. If I can save anyone else the trial and error then it'll be worth it.

    As a slightly less noobish mapper, in playtests people tend to prefer the light grey or team colored dev textures over orange. Also, yeah, lights are a big deal, lol. I'd take your time with maps, and you can always have multiple projects at once!

    EDIT: Oh my god that showed up as the latest post on my phone. My phone was wrong :(
