UPDATED 12/02/15
With inspiration taken form the pallets of the original skyboxes (With a few exceptions) I am happy to present to the community a complete set of replacement sky box's for Artemis at double the original resolution. They lack some of the intrest of the original however they do look better especially on larger screens operating at modern resolutions

Obviously Doubling up can result in some loss of performance so I have included the original set in a zip file inside for ease of switching back.

I hope everyone enjoys them and please comment if you discover any issues with them!

I'll have to try this, but just sight unseen this sounds like a great idea.

Looks really great but should I be seeing the hard line separating each of the window sky boxes?   It really does give the impression of flying in a never ending box however!

Basically, when I would fly to 90 degrees or 180 degrees or 270, i would see a distinct line that went from one skybox to the next.  I added the full art folder into my artemis file and replaced everything and this is what I got.  It went from the brighter scene on one direction to a darker one and so forth.  Like it was taking a selection of each skybox image and putting four of them together.  Did I install it incorrectly?

it sounds like one of the skyboxs has probably got its file names wrong for two of the sides.. looks like I will have to go through them all again and find out which sky box it is. I probably got distracted at some point. Guesss I should of bit the bullet and tested them all [tongue] I will look into it on thursday.

Ok indeed Number 27 was badly exported with some erroed file names I have updated the main download and for those that have already down loaded here is a link to the fix for the offending SB

Should i just go into the Artemis art file and replace # 27 or is it now part of the full download and just do a replace of all of them with a new updated download?

Both methods should work. so the "fix" goes in Art/sb27 or jsut down load and install the main zip that I have fixed

Does this need to be done to all client stations or just the server?

anything you expect to be running a main screen or to hit the "Vis" option. dosen't matter if the server is running it or not. but anyplace you want the extra definition on the 3d background the machine needs to have it.

Can I bundle this for sharing and download with some other user created content?

Of course I'll give you full credit.

Feel completely free to say no if you don't want me to.
