How to create an skybox in Unity

Objective: create a skybox and add it to the scene.

Skyboxes are a wrapper around your entire scene that shows what the world looks like beyond your geometry.

This scene has some objects that create a cool room but the background for now is the default unity background. To add a more interesting one I am gonna use a skybox.

In order to achieve it we are gonna create a new material and call it NY_skybox.

Then we have to change the standard shader for the skybox shader and select the 6 side option.

After that we have to add the respective sprites to each slot on the shader.

Next I went to Window > lightning > lightning settings and added the new material to the skybox material.

Adn good to go!!! The scene now looks amazing with the new skybox.
