Good Cubemaps: Make them? Buy them?


I’d like to try to more HDR cubemaps with the HDRI Backdrop that would be around a space station as an artificial sky, or make a 360° backdrop out of a level to not place many decorative actors like planets and asteroids etc. i’m just fiddling around in the moment but am still in need for some more varieties.
