I wanted to know how do I change the default skybox into some night theme?

Look here:

In general skies are added by adding a WoldEnvironment to your root node in a scene. But you surely already know that.

Actually I did not really know about this as I am new to Godot.

also, each camera has a setting for environment (see the inspector)

New projects come with a default_env.tres, which is the default environment used for scenes that don’t explicitely add one with a WorldEnvironment node.

You can modify it by double-clicking on it from the File Explorer and change its properties via the inspector. The skybox properties are under the Background category.

Of course if you want a scene to override the default environment, you can do so with a WorldEnvironment node and assign a new Environment resource to it.

Finally, it can also be overriden per Camera nodes (I didn’t know about that).

Well here is an answer for those who are not coming with a lot of experience —

1 - Download an HDRI Image from HDRI heaven ( an import it to your project folder.

2 - On File resources click on default_evn.tres and now move on to the Inspector section


3 - On right hand side the inspector menu will be there like this

4 - Under sky change it to the New Panorama Sky and click on the Panorama Sky Option afterwords

5 - Then Drag and drop the HDRI you downloaded in Panorama input

if you are still having problem with that watch a video on youtube -
good luck now, keep godot banging.
