I make them myself. Maybe I should make a bunch of them and add to the store. Posted Image

Yes, it would. Posted Image
I've already started on them. Will make a variety of skies (sunrises, daytime, nighttime, stormy, cartoony, etc...). Posted Image

If I may put in a request, really gloomy and smoggy dark sky-something that belongs in a post apocalyptic environment. :)

Sure, no problem. I'll have a go at making such a sky.

Yes, I'm going to make a few free ones, and maybe also do a few skypacks for a small price.

K guys, here's the first FREE skybox I've just finished creating. Posted Image
You may use it for free in your games, but I'd appreciate a credit (my full name is Chris Van Wijmeersch) in your game. Thanks. Posted Image
And here are a few screens of the skybox ingame. It's a sunny skybox with cumulus clouds. Hope you like it.

very nice. To spread them more you can upload them to the asset store.

Good idea, Aggror. Just wondering where I should put it. In 'Materials', or 'Models'. Also, in the 'Models' section, there's no section for skyboxes. Maybe I should put it in 'Nature' then? Or, is it possible to make new sections?

Next skybox will follow soon. Posted Image

Sorry for the double post, but just want to let you all know that I've just done another skybox. This one is more cloudy  than the previous one (no sun). A variety of moods is possible with this one, by adjusting the settings of your ambient/directionnal lights and fog. Could be used for apocalyptic/dessert moods, or also normal or overcast skies. Both skyboxes are now available for download in the 'Models' (Nature) section in the Asset Store. Posted Image  

Here's how the skybox can look with a few tweaks to the ambient light and atmosphere settings. Posted Image

I would recommend to use Vue d'Esprit. http://www.e-onsoftw..._esprit/?page=0
There are versions which are affordable (same price as LE) and you can make amazing skyboxes with it.

I will make a skybox package sometime next week, when i have the time =)

That's true. But not to expensive either. $99 USD
