A new version of the "SkyBox Utility" has been created by cwright from our forums. With this tool you are able to convert the five input sky textures to a single panoramic bitmap, thus making it easy to edit out any visible seams and discontinuities. It then converts the edited panorama to the final three skybox .dds files. If you place the textures in the Far Cry skybox directory the skybox displayed in Sandbox will automatically update as soon as the program has finished conversion. The 4MB sized .zip file includes following changes:
Does not require a buffer location for conversion to .dds.
User does not need to enter bitmap resolution - resolution is automatically sensed on loading.
Better error checking
Panorama and skybox textures are displayed in the program window
