Hm, but ScatterSky is just sky, with procedurally interpolated colors, correct?

I'm thinking more in terms of replacing a skybox that includes distant terrain, so I would need an actual image mapped to the inside of a sphere.

But anyway... not my highest priority at the moment, but certainly of interest in the future. Thanks for the link, @

Nah, Actual procedurally generated mesh, not a plane or cube. That method I pointed to earlier is the one of hooks to the verts that get sent down the line to the vertbuffer.
[*]Vehicle steering return-to-centre ... .cpp#L1112 - cross that one off too.

  • 3d skybox - "skybox" is by definition 3D
This is referring to what the UT99 engine or GoldSrc/Source did for skyboxes, where you basically have the skybox read from a dynamic cubemap probe in a little sub-area in the map. That way, you could model your terrain and add other details/models, and it would act as a dynamic skybox rather than a static image. This is useful for dynamic situations, such as, say, a huge distant forest fire and having the smoke from that animated, while very much perceptually being in the distance.
I thought that was the definition of skybox - just that we weren't taking full advantage.
