    My map is sectioned off into 4 skybox areas, but some of the items are being drawn through the skybox and I cant seem to get it to stop. It was fine before I cut these windows in this one building. Now I can see the red side from the blue.

    Anyone know how I can fix this without having to redo my whole skybox.

    It really depends on your layout, but it sounds like the windows are allowing some space in the blue side to see some space in the red side, and so your areas are not isolated from each other in terms of visibility.

    It's not that you're seeing through the skybox. Rather, normal geometry always renders in front of the skybox. Since you're rendering geometry that you shouldn't be, it's appearing in front of the sky.

    It's possible that a carefully placed hint could get rid of the issue.

    Would have to see [AHEM] screens though.

    I think i figured out what was causing it. I did a full compile and it went away since I was doing fast compiles before im guessing that was my problem.

    Yeah, sounds like a full VVIS will solve your problems.
