Simple Skybox

Simple Skybox material fills empty space in the camera view with a Cubemap texture.

This example uses Simple Skybox to fill the camera view with a custom equirectangular cubemap.


Create Simple Skybox

add simple skybox

You can add a Simple Skybox material by clicking the Add button [+] > Material > Simple Skybox in the Assets panel.

Apply Simple Skybox to Cube Mesh

To correctly use the Simple Skybox material, you will need a Cube mesh in the scene.

add to cube mesh

Try using a cube instead of other meshes for the Skybox setup since a cube mesh has minimal vertexes and will impact the performance the least.

For this example, add a built-in Cube Mesh and apply the Simple Skybox material to the cube’s Mesh Renderer.

cube properties

Since the Skybox will need to cover the whole camera view, attach the Cube under the Camera and set its Position to 0, 0, 0 in the Cube’s Inspector panel.
