just came across this tool: http://alexcpeterson.com/spacescape

It's for generating spacescapes in 6 tiles. Together with the ati cubemap generator: http://developer.amd.com/resources/ar ... tools-archive/cubemapgen/

and a view changings of the tiles:

Z+ load Top texture -> rotate diagonally
X+ Front -> rotate diagonally
X- Back -> rotate diagonally, then horizontally and vertically
Z- Bottom -> rotate diagonally
Y- Right -> vertically
Y+ Left -> horizontally

you are able to render new starsphere backgrounds up to 4096x4096 per tile "on the fly".

A detailed how to can be found here: http://unrealoldfriends.activeboard.com/t47250341

All programs are free to use.

I used the search funktion of this board, didn't find it but think that it might be helpful here and there.

An example from the above mentioned how to:

It's very configurable. I used it to make a few star cubes for my game engine. You shouldn't have to do any rotations on the maps, just reorder them in your cubic backdrop.

Nice pointer, Daywalker, thanks.

CubeMapGen is still supported by a new project, and there is a later version (1.6) here: http://code.google.com/p/cubemapgen/downloads/list

The author has a blog here to help with the new features: http://seblagarde.wordpress.com/2012/ ... ysically-based-rendering/
