    I don't know everything about skyboxes but I don't see how it would be possible to create from this image, so much information is missing. You could probably get something with a lot of work in Photoshop but I cant see how it could turn out to look good (either it will be stretched or/and there will be weird seams).

    I thought that you created skyboxes in 3D modeling programs or used a very special camera (?) (for real world skyboxes). Build the world in 3D and use cube mapping to create a skybox from it. If you had a panoramic picture you could maybe map it to a cylinder (without capping it at top and bottom) and create a cube map from that (although it would be a "hole" in the bottom and top) or use a sphere although there would be ugly distortion from it.

    Well do you have any idea where i can find a new skybox for space maps and such, that look like space affects still...

    Or how i can make a skybox which is my main problem...
    I need to know how to get it to work in wolfcam to replace the previous ql sky boxes with my new one.

    Find any non-stock space map, and it'll have a different skybox. Any map that's open has a skybox that you can use, really.
