Hello friends, I am trying to get some nice screenshots of my model, but I didn't want them to have a background. It would really make my paper pop if I could get the entire background of the empty Gazebo world I am using to be white instead of that standard gray.

I am sure this has been asked but I am struggling to find exactly what I am looking for....any help is greatly appreciated.

Add this description to your world file.

  <ambient>1 1 1 1</ambient>
  <background>1 1 1 1</background>

For the full specification, see here.

You could optionally try to play with the sun (see here).

Thanks for this! I got the background to go white, now I just need to get the "working area" (grid area) to also be white. It is currently gray...

EDIT: I think I have gotten something that is more then appropriate for my application. Thanks a bunch for the help @nlamprian
