Nice. Care to share a bit more about the skybox e.g. how you made the texture and so on? Been thinking of tackling this myself soon and would appreciate any further information.
I just googled for sky texture on google, then in GIMP I copied it to a second layer, flipped it horizontally, and applied a layer mask gradient from one side so that I got a mirror image that repeated horizontally.
I then applied it to an inside-out sphere model in MilkShape 3D. I loaded this skydome model into a skybox tool I made that outputs the skybox sides. I then just make a skybox with each of those images.
