Is there a Tutorial anywhere that shows us how we can use our own images for the Sky?
Can anyone who has done this let us know how it's done?

I mean the Sky/sphere..
Not just using a background prim. wink.gif

Looking at the Base Addon I'm guessing you just need to add a preview jpg and a dds texture file into a folder called "Myaddon/Data/Sky"

You can also use a transparent DDS file to hide the dome completely. The BG renders pure black.

did it here in my movie "RebirtH".

Or you could just not pick a sky texture, and change the sky colour to black.

Yes I've done that for most the other sci fi stuff I've done in the past..

I was after Jupiter & a few Moons to be the background this time though..
Primaveranz taught me how to add my own Backgrounds & Publish them in the Workshop.
So All is Good and sorted. Thanks Rampa & Ben for your replies.
