If you do not know how to get this into Esenthel, here are some steps:

Download Nvidia Tools:
https://developer.nvidia.com/sites/defau...7.1645.exe


Create a new folder anywhere, create a .bat file with this content
nvdxt -cubeMap -list cubemapfile.lst -output myskybox.dds

create a new file called cubemap.lst

inside your cubemap.lst file add this
PHP Code:
left.png
right
.png
top
.png
bottom
.png
back
.png
front
.png 

open the .dds file and convert it to .png or something
now put the .png into editor and set it as cube map

RE: Free Space Skybox Maker
This really is a fantastic find. My plan was to use Hubble images (or something similar) to patch together a cube map for my skies, but this will work 10000x better and faster.

Actually, everyone should be using something similar to this for their game's sky--especially night. Most people underestimate how much a unique sky adds to the unique feel of a game.

I think Esenthel 2.0 could benefit greatly from just such a tool....
