I'm porting a skybox from TimeSplitters Future Perfect. It uses 9 sides-it uses the usual 6 sided skybox but the up side is made of 4 textures rather than 1.I put the 4 up textures seamlessly in the same texture but the texture size for the up texture now 1024 pixels in width and 256 in height. All the other sides are 256 x 256 pixels so will this differing texture size affect anything? Thank you for reading this.

    As far as I know, texture size wont affect the actual size of the skybox texture. You could set it to the same size as the rest, or just leave it like that, but it shouldn't affect a 2d or 3d skybox texture...
