As in the title wink Can I expect them any time soon wink ?
I would really appriciate that, because there are plenty panoramical 360 sky textures with very high quality and It would be nice if Esenthel can handle them smile

RE: Skydomes
in my experience after reviewing tens of different engines. these aren't used much in games.
When i worked in postproduction compnay we used alot of domes for max etc.
But after that it has been only cubemaps.

RE: Skydomes
I don't know if skydomes are better than cubemaps but I just found many, many textures which are 360 panoramical images of the sky, while still can't find good texture for cubemap smile So i think It just would be easier to make very good looking sky with possibility of using skydomes smile

RE: Skydomes
Yeah i know what you mean and you are probably right.

There still are good sites to get Cubemaps also:
http://www.3delyvisions.com/skf1.htm
http://www.alusion-fr.com/an1ffa4.htm

And some ways to make them:
http://www.cgtextures.com/content.php?ac...e=cubemaps
http://www.planetside.co.uk/terragen/productmain.shtml
http://en.wikibooks.org/wiki/Blender_3D:...d_a_skybox

Maybe these will help you before you get your feature in the engine smile
