What program is best for creating the 6 images for a custom skybox? I've tried drawing one by hand, and that ate up half my day, and didn't work.:(

Terragen™

There are some important things to know when making a skybox with terragen (such as setting the zoom to 1 instead of 1.414) so check out this tutorial to get the full scoop.

Thanks! one question about terragen. Can it make pure skyscapes? I need that for the skybox for City in Teh Sky. Also, how do I add slowly shifting clouds? The only thing I've come up with is the background, a plain blue box with the mountains, etc, and alpha transparent clouds set to rotate on an orgin brusheventually going behind the mountains, etc, with the skyportal entity instead of the shader skybox. I would call it the composite method if anything if it works.

I don't know that it can make pure skyscapes, but I suppose you could always simply vertically mirror a flat terrain. Other folks might have better advice for that.
