Im having trouble displaying both my sky dome and a ground matrix at the same time. If I have my dome first, and I add my matrix, then the dome disappears and vice versa. How can I display both at the same time. Does it have to do with the dome sky object not being reversed?

Have you tried show all objects?

Not really sure, I make matrices with MatEDIT so they are made with code and I dont have this problem.

normally,when I get my sky disapperaing,it's because of two or three different factors...

camera range not enough high(set it very high at first and lower to adapt the matrix/sky),
Skysphere too small,
skysphere not inversed(set object obj#,wiref.,transp.,CULL),

Personally,I think you didn't make it enough big(sky)...did you make the dome in Milkshape or a modeler?If so,you may have to

1:rotate it accordingly and fix the pivot
2:Scale it at least 10,10,10

A good trick to know where the object goes when you think it 'disappears', is to set the autocam off...

That's easy,just make a starfield and put in some nebulas and stuff but just make sure that if you're using the DB sphere then you'll have to take caution not to put anything else than stars and blackness in the top and bottom of the image....quick and rather poor graf but here it goes
