after many days of hard work, I cant solve the problem with my skyboxi.
I made skyboxi with cilinder and delete the cap top/botton.
put the materials (dds) in each face. but dosen´t appears in RF.
I discovery that I cant see inside of my cilinder but I cant invert this.
I tried many things but nothing, include use the edit/normal/facet normals
in 3dsimed.
some one help me , Im crazy.
Im tried 3dmax but I cant put the uvmap in right place. (10 files .dds)
I spent many hours until obtaining success with cilinder and number of faces.
please someone help me?
thanks
ps. sorry about my english

the better way is to make one skybox texture of your 10 ones. It will be very wide but so you have all right scale for all.

In 3dsmax it is very easy to devide polygones as sized as you want, where is the Problem?

How many images do you want to use, 6,12 or 24.
Does it need to be 24 faces ?
Let me know and I'll see what I can do.

Had a play and got a 16 sided with images 1,2,3,4,5,6,1,2,3,4,5,6,1,2,3,4.
Works in Krunches skybox as the horizon.gmt.
I'll have a play tomorrow with more plains and pics.

Ok here is a 24 panel 1 using 10 images.
Unzip the files to where you want to work on them.
Open horizon.gmt in 3DsimEd.
Replace the images in this zip with your own but name them exactly the same as these eg. bk01-bk10, make sure they are 512 x 512 dxt5, set the image in 3DsimEd as noclip,mips off, transparency to multi and specular to 4 or 5.
Export the horizon.gmt to the same folder and overwrite the 1 in the folder also export your images to the same folder.
Then go to tools in 3dSimed and select Pack Data/Rfactor.mas, go to the folder where all the files are and select them all, and save it as sky.mas, then copy the sky.mas and paste it over the 1 in your tracks folder.
You may have to do some trial and error with size and z position.
Sorry the top D/l link is for a 24 panel 10 images eg. 1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8,9,10,1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8,9,10,1,2,3,4.
This 1 is I think bigcarva needs 24 panel 10 images eg. 1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8,9,8,9,10,1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8,9,8,9,10.

This zip contains all the files from Krunch's sky.mas including the readme please make sure you repack it with all the files supplied, and remember to mention him in your readme when you release your track.
