I don't remember where I saw this and don't remember what it was called.

Can't find it anywhere on search!

Someone is selling complete horisons, you get a huge platform with hills all around.

Very pretty and there are lots of different types and styles.

But where can I get them?

Wow, I just logged on to make this post. I want the exact same.

 

A skybox that looks like it's on sim ground so a simulation of the sim basically. I have found one example which is nice just it wont fit an house on.

The one I have is by PantzerHamster Petshop, who sell it at Two Roses >> http://slurl.com/secondlife/Jorah/61/124/399.  Here's the description ..

Panorama RealView Backgrounds System with 48 scenes each!
Currently we have 3 versions:
- The Panorama RealView LandScapes System
- The Panorama RealView CityScapes System
- The Panorama RealView BeachScapes System
All work alike and are totally compatible, meaning that if you use more then 1 of the systems, you only need to have one background and you can project all scenes on it, whether coming from the LandScapes, CityScapes or BeachScapes HUD.

if anyones curious about how those wonderful skybox spheres are created, they use a particular type of panorama image, made with a fisheye lens, stitched together using hugin (usally, it's the only panorama stitching setup I know of that works for fisheye images.) with a finished image size ratio of 2:1 (they usually need some padding/editing at the top/bottom)... a good example can be seen here

regular panorama images can be used but often require a lot more padding/editing at the top/bottom, especially if the depicted items are "near" the viewer, but mountain top, or high elevation scenes can often be reworked with little to no effort.

once the image is completed, it's aplied to the inside of a hollow sphere (although a cut torus, or tube can work for some images)
