A dreamy skybox?

#1
Hello, I have made today an Image with GIMP that is pretty cool I think.

Could it be used as a skybox or something for a strange map.

I release this as a CC-BY resource. If you use it, add a note that it was made by unfa and that his homepage is http://unfamusic.com.

If you want to get source, I can upload it somewhere too.

I would like to know how you made this, as the texture mapping for a skybox is not exactly simple.

I'd definitely like to see some psychedelic skyboxes/textures like this :p Perhaps for some kind of interdimensional/other worldly type map.

I may make a video on how I made this.

But before I do, here is a short list of steps I took:

0. create a black layer of dimensions 2000x2000 in GIMP
1. play on it with w black'n'white gradient tool in difference mode for 5 minutes (it should create an interesting grayscale image
2. play with colors>curves and make something like this: _/|_/'''
3. add zoom motion blur
4. add next black layer and continue working on it
5. change gradient colors to something saturated and repeat the first step on this layer (it should create a colorful mess)
6. set the colorful layer's blending mode to hue (it should add colors to the previously grayscale first layer)

That's rougly what I did.

Is it the only picture? Because a skybox needs 6 images you know. Wink And why 2000x2000? Shouldn´t it be 2048x2048?

Anyway nice work!

If we could rig up a shader like the starry portals (dynamic-flowing) then it would make a good teleporter surface too. Like the electric feel Smile

To be included it would need GPL v2, CC-BY is not compatible IIRC.

+what Maddin said.

I can't see how this would be of any use in skybox making. They (obviously) need to be seamless and yes, any skybox consists of six images.

I'm not a fan of very brightly coloured/high contrast sky boxes. I feel they are rather distracting. Eye cancer n all that Tongue
Hey, want to learn to map? You might want to start here and here!

to be official part of the game it needs to be a GPL compatible license sure...
But if you share this texture with a map which is not official content of game then it should be fine Smile

The idea of surface for teleporter sounds good Tongue
