I don't know how to make skyboxes for BloodGDX. What I can do is process the ones that have a
already been made but that's not ideal. Better would be if I could take the textures used to render the skybox, upscale that, then the skybox could be re-rendered using that.


Well I can help a bit with that. I am no artist, but I can help take the art and make the skybox.

I have access to Pano2VR which has the ability to render a skybox from the input images.
However, there may be a hole that needs to be patched at the very centre of the skybox. Thats where an artist is very useful.

New skyboxes, thanks to Tiddalick for doing the conversion using Pano2VR. Compatible with Deathwish (and other mods that happen to use the same PLUs)

Looks great!

I'm impressed how you managed to plug the void spaces so seamlessly.
Have to see how the stretched versions look in comparison when they are done.

Thanks for your continued efforts on upscaling the textures.

Great skyboxes. :) But some transitions from light to dark colors (see for example right top of 8798_FR) seem to me too coarse. I applied a bit of blur effect and like it more that way.

Yes, the fuzz effect is a bit coarse, that's because the script I made wasn't originally for textures as large as the skyboxes. The fuzziness also helps hide artifacts of the upscale process

Maybe some additional processing would help. I don't know best solution as I'm not expert on this but for now I'm quite satisfied with applying simple blur effect.

Not necessarily additional processing, just apply the fuzz effect on a larger image then scale down.

New Upscale Pack release with skyboxes (not the same ones I released previously in this thread), color variations (mainly used in Deathwish), new title screen, Monolith logo, help and loading screens, and health/armor numbers.

Upscaled background graphics are not included, but can be used with a simple edit of the BloodGDX.def

Great. Please, add in the next release also font that is used in submenu settings and user content files. Plus some skyboxes are missing but those remaining look better than before.

That particular skybox comes with BloodGDX itself.

The other missing skyboxes were color variations only used in mods to the game.

As for the submenu font, maybe. The font itself never bothered me, just how it turned into a blurry mess once you turned on texture filtering.

When some font is polished and other remains the same, the contrast looks inharmonic.

This is IMHO better.

Nice, but I would prefer something similar like this font from 6xBRZ pack (was used in screenshot):
http://s000.tinyuplo...734936024383797

It seems to me more sleek and readable. Compare it please and consider what would be better when making final version.
