    Whenever I go to make overviews, the background of the map is black, but as I fly up, in an attempt to load more of the map, the sky turns green... I know the map isn't leaking, as the water textures work, but I would like to know why...

    isn't the skybox supposed to show up as the background?

    I'm not sure what causes it and maybe it was intended but mspaint.exe is always with you

    I believe this occurs if you go outside of the skybox. You might try raising the skybox and lowering it back down before final release or rotating the whole map 90 degrees so it fits in your screen lengthwise

    Diagonal of the screen lets you get most length.

    I tried the 90' turn, and it didnt work... ill try again later, along with the raising of the skybox...

    Yeah, but then it'd be diagonal and who wants that

    Using mobile for anything more serious than scrolling is an arse. Everyone got it however, I don't really see a reason to post just for that?

    I noticed this happens most when I don't have fog in my map. Once I enable fog, the background is either the fogs color, or black.

    Things get strange once you are no longer in any visleaf.

    It seems im not the only one having these problems... can someone who knows how hammer operates, and stuff, tell me what is causing this?
    Because if this is right, How would i fix it?

    The remedy for not being in a visleaf is to move so that you are in one.

    ...and not be able to see the entire map. Render, yeah, novis, but skybox is never so high. Could make skybox high as hell, or make a nodraw room that'd work with novis.
