    Free high res skymaps (Massive 07 update!)

    Ok, new selection of skymaps, lots more to choose from. I have to say a massive thank you to kyle91, who generously offered to host these for me. cheers mate!

    There are no restrictions on using these textures, you can use these for commercial work, and you don't have to name me if you don't want to. the only restriction is that you can't sell them. that's all.

    Usage:

    (Edit) I've created a quick video tutorial on how to use them, you can view it here:

    http://www.vimeo.com/1526074

    Using them is pretty easy. load one of them into the 'world' section of the texturebuttons, Then in the worldbuttons, active these settings:

    For Angular Maps (The top ones)

    'Real' 'Hori' and 'angmap'

    For Spheremaps (The other ones)

    'Real' 'Hori' and 'sphere'

    Ok, just added a new one, and the topic is less than 3 hours old :P

    Rendering off another one now, so stay tuned!

    The timing couldn't have been any more perfect. I quit blender, started IE to type 'high res skymap' into google's image search when I noticed an unread topic in news & chat. You must be psychic!

    question: what program did you use to do the spherical mapping?

    Could someone do a quick runthrough on how to use these in the new compile with the Spherical or Tube mapping? I can't get mine to work quite right. Thanks.
