Yes, I created this...just this morning, actually. It's a composite of several photographs plus painted stuff in photoshop. Getting it to properly wrap around the cube is the hard part :/

Thanks for being so impressed with it though :) lol. I was worried it would look bad...

Yes, it is. Original resolution is 1024 x 1024. Might up it to 2048 x 2048 though, depending on how it looks in-game.

Looks pretty good.

Some comments:

-for the foreground mountains, give a little more color so they don't look as faded. Try increasing saturation just a bit, will help with perspective.

- nice touch how you have some clouds hanging off the left hand side. Possibly paste some more clouds on top of the image, reduced in size (not hanging off the edges) but "back further" so that the appearance is that the further back perspective is not entirely flat. This is just a small detail suggestion however.

- possibly darken the color of the water just a tad. I am uncertain how it looked in original Halo, for I never played, just giving an opinion from a realistic view point.

Great work man, would highly recommend 2048 though. Looks awesome.

the_Farseer Jul 21 2011, 5:51pm replied:

-Actually, atmospheric perspective will give that 'faded' look you're talking about. It also blurs things a bit as water vapor in the air plays tricks with the eye :) Trust me on this one, I've taken a lot of classes for this.

-I tried this and couldn't get it to look right...so I pulled them out :) lol

-Also tired this but then looked at images from the original game and it's actually quite light. The ring skybox in Reach is especially light. Just google it and you'll see...things are VERY lightened, almost too much for my liking.

And they say that the skyboxes in Reach were beautiful.

Which, they were right.

Trick is, this is downright gorgeous, especially since it's on FOC.

So, many kudos to you, man.

Nice job, Farseer. Strangely enough, one of my favorite parts of Halo: CE was the way they made the Halo come up out of the horizon, with an atmosphere that didn't quite hide the twinkling stars in the backround. This represents what I remember perfectly, great work on it.

One question though. I also remember being able to see Threshold. Is that going to be worked in here?

Everything you do sets a new level of greatness, it's amazing.
Quick question though, this was probably asked already, but will each Halo have like a unique terrain/climate as seen in the Citadel's control room on the Ark? I think that'd be really awesome, but it would probably be a lot more work to do.

I read somewhere that the Halos are unique so it would seem right to do so. One of them is practically water and another one is egypt. Also I'm loving this. To me this is actually better than a Reach Skybox because of the fact you can see a bit more. I Like it although in game it won't beacuse of fade. Stupid Fade...

Learn how to code websites. It'll help, trust me. HTML (web code) is almost identical to the code used in EaW, it's extremely easy to pick up and there are plenty of really good tutorials out there. good luck!

Description

This is one side of the Halo skybox texture, for feedback. This texture is proving much more difficult to complete than I would have thought... Comments??
