Welcome to Cubed 3, home of the original SkyBox.
In this site you will find some of the most fascinating and original creations that are comprised from the works of various artists. Each SkyBox represents hours of labor and tedious work to generate graphic images that result in a 360° panoramic view. Not only can you rotate a full 360° at eye level, but you can view above you and below you in a full 360°. Imagine yourself standing in the middle of a room and turning your body in a full circle while gazing up and down periodically. Thus the SkyBox is unique in its presentation and can be used for a variety of applications, such as: video game back drops, animated movie scenes and worlds, and alternative computer desktops. The majority of our visitors like to utilize them as an alternative computer desktop. This makes the conventional desktop obsolete since a SkyBox is interactive. If you are tired of that old desktop that is non-interactive, you'll love these... so take a close look at our large selection of dramatic and interesting SkyBoxes.
News & Updates:
~Well Schools comming up and just got done doing a scholarship program so i dont think I'll have much time to get the rest of the SkyBoxes up. But I'll be doing what I can when I have the time.
~Just realized that the links to the skyboxes on pages 3-7 are not working. Ill try to get them fixed when I can.
~Im back! The last project of mine was to try and launch this site into a business, which failed. So im back here at my old domain that is wonderfully provided by my good friend Adam, owner of shadowpuppet.net. The old site was lost when my hard drive crashed, so its been rebuilt from scratch. There are a few new things to the site, such as the option to change the color theme of the website. The other was just a simple improvement to the navagation through the SkyBox Pages. And the last thing was I made the navagation bar to have drop down menus. The forum should be up shortly. Also the SkyBox pages 8, 9, and 10 are not finished yet, so there are links that dont work as well as broken image links.
~Removed site map, it was just taking too much to maintain. Finally straightened out my situation wiht the SkyBoxes, but I am now uploading them again. All the .box formats are up and running, but im still working on getting the .zip's back up and running. AND PLEASE REMEMBER TO USE MY FORUM. I had a suggestion from like 10 people to put one up, and when I did, none of them used it. Ive really only gotten one person I dont know to use the forum, everyone else is a friend of mine from school.
~New Expandable/De-expandable button for the front page News & Updates. 14 new SkyBoxes will be added, but will not be available for download due to problems stated in previous post.
~Due to some problems I have encountered (No need to mention any of them), I have had to remove all my skyboxes for the time being. I hope to have them back up as soon as possible. Sorry for the inconvience.
~Well well.... my forum login wasnt working but thats because the reference for the database was not the right file path, but as always thanks to my friend Adam who gave me the free web space fixed it for me, because when it comes to php I know very very little. But im slowly learning. So yah the forum is fully functional now. Hope you all enjoy.
~Its finally FINISHED!!!!! Not like I really did anything though, but I got a forum up and running for all those people who like to spend more than 95% of their life online and blogging/foruming (if thats a word but I just made it up so I guess it is now). So check it out tell me what you think. Oh and I plan on getting a what-cha-ma-kall-it on the site too. Well ttyl.
~All new smaller sized SkyBox Packs. All are availabel for download in .zip or .box format. The_Mother_Load file for .zip and .box have been updated.
~Well I recovered most of my files of my hard drive but the thing I needed the most was the files in my documents because well thats where my web site files were on. So, when I and if I ever get those files back ill be able to do alot more updates.
~Well I had gotten finished with a couple of new snowy and fall SkyBoxes but just as I was going to get them up, my hard drive decided to croak, so right now the sight is on hold till i get a new hard drive and recover my old files and transfer them over to the new hard drive. Ya it sucks.
~New SkyBox on page 14. Its called Photo Dome Mountain. Enjoy!!
~Ah what the heck.... I was going to slowly release the .box files and slowly release my new SkyBoxes but im so excited im releasing them all now. So all SkyBoxes on page 13 and 14 are NEW. Links on all SkyBox pages have the option of downloading .zip or .box format. The site map now is updated with the same options. SkyBox Packs page is soon to be updated.
~COMMING SOON!!!! If you are running Tactile3D as your 3D desktop, a friend and I are converting all of my files to .box. So in a couple of weeks or so I will have the SkyBoxes in .zip format for SphereXP and .box format for Tactile3D. Keep a look out for a post that they have been uploaded and ready to download.
~5 NEW SkyBoxes on page 12. The last 5 on page 12 are the new ones. And 12 new SkyBoxes are coming on 09-20-06, so keep a look out for them.
~Well, well, well..... I now have all my SkyBoxes up and good to go and download. Thanks to my wonderful friend who owns Shadowpuppet.net. He hooked me up with a subdomain name and my own space for file hosting!!!! Yah as u cant tell Im really happy.
~The SkyBox packs page is up, but i dont have the files hosted YET!!! STILL!!!! but yah i cant seem to find the hosting service I like, I guess because im too picky and have been a web designer since I was in fifth grade and know exactly what i need and dont need in the way of a host. oh well. Ill try to get the files up soon, hopefully, someday in the future.
~Still working on getting all of my files back online. If you know of a really nice place that I can host my files for free or for a very cheap price, please e-mail me and let me know. I would really appreciate it. Comming soon is a SkyBox pack page where you can download every SkyBox I have in three split up zip files or you can go for the big one which is just one zip file.
~Ok im back from camp now. It went really good minus one thing. But its all good now. But when i got back and checked my e-mail and I had a ton of e-mail from my hosting service saying "30 days of inactivity, file has been deleted." So right now im trying to find a new hosting service to get all of my skyboxes back up. So right now my site is just a looking site.
~This is probably the last update that I am going to have till August 21, 2006. 3 new Awsome Hi-Res 1400x1400 SkyBoxes on page 12. Thanks to Crinkle.
~42 new SkyBoxes, oh Yah! Last 6 on page 8, all of page 9, 10, and 11. Check them out.
~FINALLY!!!!! I fixed my hosting problem, im using a different hosting service. Its ok, but i dont like it that much because it takes you to different pages to download the file, but it works. New bgs on page 7 and all of page 8, These ones are high res and are mostly 1024x1024. Oh, and after June 7, 2006 the site will no longer be updated till about August 21, 2006. Because I work at a Boy Scout camp during the summer. Just a forewarning. But Ill be back after that to continue working on the site.
~Ok so I've been gone a while, I re-did the navbar on all the pages, and also re-did the background. I hope to fix the problem of uploading files larger than 1mb, as I exspressed in previous posts.
~Still having problems with those previous SkyBoxes that I listed before. But I was able to post 17 new skyboxes on page 6 and 7. Enjoy
~Found new AWSOME!!! 3D interface. Check it out on the 3D Environments page. Its called Tactile3D. Also check out Win 3D. But still working on the uploading problem... hope to get it fixed soon.
~Site Map is complete and finished. I have had some problems with my hosting service, some of the zip files are not uploading. Alaskan Beauty, Antarctic, Bay Storm, Carribean Cove, Dreamworld Dawn, Dreamworld Night, Earthrise, Enchanted Forest, Encounter at the Ruins, Escort, and Outside IN are not working. I hope to get them up soon.
~Site Update. I added a section of links to 3D Environment programs, ones like SphereXP, but I only know of two (including SphereXP), so if you know of any more let me know. I also added a site map for quick browsing, but its not complete yet, so hang with me till I get it finished. There is also a insane new SkyBox on the fifth page, its called Outside IN. Its 1400x1400 and is Hi-Res, file size is 5mb. Its the best one yet!!
~Whats up everyone?. Well I did some work this weekend and found a bunch of new SkyBoxes. The last four on page 3 are new and all of page 4 and 5. Hope you enjoy them! I should have some more up by Friday.
