    I wrote up a tutorial for creating custom skyboxes. You can find it here: https://wiki.palobby.com/wiki/Example_Mod_Custom_Skybox
    It doesn't even require the use of the texture editor I wrote. Let me know if you run into any trouble and I'll update the tutorial.

    I think I've noticed an issue with using custom skyboxes in that the explosion sprites - the sort of glow-ball has horrible edges on skyboxes other than the default.
    Not quite sure how to fix this.

    Do you have a screenshot? Or is it somewhere in your videos?

    It can be a lot worse with obvious differences in colour and shading towards the edges.

    I tried the most ugly skybox I could imagine, and I'm not sure I see it:

    Though I made this skybox with papatran instead of the texture editor. Or do you mean that the ball on the right in my image is so obviously a ball instead of something more smooth?

    It's not with the nuke explosion. Some building/unit explosions and planetary explosion.

    I see what you mean there. Weirdly enough, I don't have that...

    Do you have any mods that change the explosions maybe? Like Dark Nights or Bigger Explosions?
