A skybox is an object enclosing the entire playable area of an arena on a 3D video game. In Tanki Online, the skybox takes the shape of a cube and extends for several kilometers beyond the physical map.
Each one of the 6 faces of the skybox has its own texture, which creates the effect of a realistic sky and background.
