Hey guys, I just wanted to quickly share something we did for our game that I’m pretty proud of
Skyboxes in roblox are typically pretty bland, and we wanted something a bit more adjustable for our game’s atmosphere. We wanted something where we could have the horizon color smoothly differ from the sky color, with colorable clouds. Using some tricks involving a billboardgui, a sliced inverted sky sphere with an alpha gradient, beams and some other tricks, we managed to get something that looks pretty decent.
Here’s a couple videos of a sunset and sunrise in our project
Looks fantastic! Wish the default sky system would get an overhaul to be more modern (maybe something like the Unity default sky would be nicer). The use of ambient sounds is also really nice in both those clips too, looking forward to seeing more from this project.
But seriously, this is legendary! Been checking out a lot of the Wild West’s progress over twitter and discord . This is easily triple-A quality. Ahah modern problems need modern solutions. This has to be one of the most complex tricks pulled off, and it looks absolutely jaw-dropping-ly awesome. Can’t wait for release !
This is the upcoming game “The Wild West,” it is an accelerator/incubator game led by Tyridge and Tamara_X. Centred around the Wild West and cowboys (in case its not obvious). Its still in active development, but you can check out more news about it on their Discord:
