According to Wikipedia, a skybox is a method of creating backgrounds to make a video game level appear larger than it really is.
This week I decided to experiment with skybox techniques, and landed on the spherical approach. Having a sphere helps visualize where objects appear from the center, and made it easier for me to add clouds in the sky.
With a sphere, I can also automatically rotate the world around the player to create the illusion of motion.
