Public Skyboxes by Mr. Chop

Postby Chopium on Thu Aug 12, 2010 5:19 am

Hello, I'm Mr. Chop (Colter Wehmeier). I make skyboxes from time to time. Most of the skyboxes I make go to individuals for their mod projects, but sometimes I will release a skybox for the public to use. I want to use this thread to keep a log of released skyboxes along with feedback and possible suggestions. So, without further adieu, here are the skyboxes. They are all full HDR. I hope you will like them.

I will update or post when more come out. Many people ask me for lighting info or hdr info, but sorry, I won't do that for you. Find what works best for you, you'll be glad you did.

Skyboxes are something that everyone loves and needs, and nobody knows how to make. To have such high quality ones publicly released from the goodness of your heart... Mr. Chop I could kiss you. Your tutorials, mod contributions, and now this; you're a freaking philanthropist.

Pure awesomeness

omnicoder, you don't need Gmod to use these, they should work in any Obox game

I know, but I can't download from the gmod site without owning Gmod.

I just use Vue 8, CGTextures, and a lot of Photoshop. I had plans to start taking pans of the sky myself, but it involves a lot of money and time so I opted to stick with some cheaper easier options.
