    So I'm making this floating in the void map, and I want to use fog to make it seem more cloudy, but there's a slight problem.

    The fog doesn't affect the skybox. Is there a way to fix this?

    Also some of my overlays and decals have come out black, though I think this may be because I changed my texture quality while in the map.

    I think the only way is to make a custom skybox

    Do you still have fullbright on? Because I was having issues with overlays not showing up until I added something other than the default lighting.

    Skybox

    For the skybox itself u need a custom skybox,
    for the props in the skybox you need to set up the fog properties in the "Sky_camera" entity.

    Shit yes, u can add a follow white cube with 50% transparency.

    And yes, ideally is just to photoshop skybox.
