Simple question: Are Skymaps usually static, or are they moved when the player/camera moves? And would moving it around create a different impression, than static skyboxes, at all?


The skymaps are always static!!!The only thing that moves usually is the camera and models(yeah i know that the skyboxes are also models).But think of it.If the skyboxes move with the player it will appear that you doesn’t move at all!

They can, however, be animated, say lights popping in and out, changing textures and so go on…

In truth a skybox is just another bunch of polygons.
