I may not have been there with this partiular install of my client - I make a new one every month.

I think I have though... It may also be the res file doesn't download the sky set.

No problem.

Do note that this topic isn't up-to-date (*sigh*... everything I made isn't up-to-date... MS: C script list, guild guide, need... to... get... to... work...) because the skyboxes for ms_snow and nightmare_thornlands aren't listed.

CSS, I have to thank you for using the information in this topic; you motivated me to add the three skyboxes that were missing, and tomorrow I'll be researching the pitch values of these skyboxes!

For my current low level map I'm making the moon in the sky looks pretty good because of this information. Thanks JM!

You're welcome :)
Good to know people still use this information.

Edit: I just noticed Crow added a new skybox called "winter" to Outer Lodagond. I guess I'll have to update this soon.

Re: MasterSword: Continued mapping - Skybox names & images

Added Outer Lodagond (lodagond-1) skybox 'winter'. I also replaced the pictures on the first page with thumbnails (click to enlarge) because of two reasons:
1) A large part of every image was not showing due to the new forum anti-stretch measure.
2) It costs less time to download the thumbnails, because they are smaller.

I also plan to add some more skyboxes that Crow linked to, along with a download link to a RAR archive containing all these skyboxes.

IDK why they don't rig it so it just stretches your post, instead of everyone elses, like the very old versions of phpBB or Ikonboard had it.

Yeah, I was wondering the same thing.
Still though, the thumbnails save some bandwith and reduce the load time of the first page.

Re: MasterSword: Continued mapping - Skybox names & images

Awesome ultra mega update.
Biggest update ever!

I added 24 skyboxes to the first page, now giving us a total of 40. Yes, that's right, the amount of skyboxes went from sixteen to 40, that means the amount of skyboxes almost tripled.
Fun fact: you will have to download 7.37 MB of image files to see all the thumbnails.

Skyboxes added:
arcd
arcn
blyysky
city1
cx
damager
dashnight256_
dawng
desdusk
desert1
desert2
forest
frozen_
frozendusk_
ghetto
jungle
morningdew
nitaly
null_hill256_
null_lake256_
riverscape1
tornsky
tropical
xt_deheat


I still have to find a host for all the new skyboxes (looks towards Thothie, Squirrel & Weiss) but in the meantime, drool over the mass amount of new skyboxes.

All images can be enlarged by clicking on them.

Re: MasterSword: Continued mapping - Skybox names & images

Thanks :mrgreen:
Your appreciation is my future motivation!

Also, I'm looking for people who can help me host a ZIP archive that will contain all the custom skyboxes (that's about 32 in total, will check tomorrow) and the preview images (for mappers). Estimated filesize: anywhere between 35 and 45 MB.

Again, farily certain you have FTP access to epic-name... In any case, get it to me and I'll upload it.

o_O really? Should this be in my PMs or somewhere else?
Anyway, I can't get it to you right now because I'm going to family today, but once I get back tonight, I'll see if I can send it through MSN (and I'll work on that one thing from that one PM you sent me).

You hadn't done that already? Lazy bugger >_< Don't worry about it. That system's been ditched.

MSN won't allow transfers over 10-15mb, so you'll have to FTP it. I'll force Squirrel to send your info again ;-)
