Skies not rendering properly in place thumbnails

This has been bugging me since just about forever.

How to replicate: Do anything to the time of day
Where: Production

I hate this bug.

I had the issue before, when Innovation Labs was put on the Dynamic Lighting Showcase banner, it showed a dark nighttime seen… with a bright blue cloudless sky. And I couldnt change it because it was already saved to the banner,

Why not just make a custom thumbnail? It looks much nicer and you can modify it all you want.

Maybe because I’m not rich. Why not fix the bug?

Yes, this bug should be fixed

Workaround without spending anything :
You are aware that you can take a Snapshot of your screen, upload that as decal on a Brick.
Then you use the Camera to set the Thumbail to the Position of the Brick.

Basically it just takes a picture then :slight_smile:

It’s really annoying, and at the moment the only real fix is to screenshot it in studio, then make it a thumbnail.
The downside to this is that it costs a 20 Robux, which isn’t a lot, but can be annoying which it would cost nothing granted the bug was not there.

I fixed the issue in our internal build; the fix should ship mid-January.

We really needed a site like this a looooooong time ago.
Thanks!

Ummm… I think it’s worse now:
Appeared after I saved it. Shows normally in studio.

It shows in mobile!

That’s probably an unrelated issue. Most likely your asset fails to fetch for some reason.
What’s the asset ids in the Sky object?

One of the most popular skybox (mostly used for the legit-looking clouds):

I went in mobile game, shown in the picture above, twice and it still occurs. It might just be the skybox itself, idk.

Did roblox block the wiki ?

It may be because I see user-created skyboxes show.
