    How do I make Lightning strikes appear in my 3D Skybox.
    It was used in Sawmill and Thundermountain and I guess Mountainlab.
    If I remember correctly there was a white light in skybox during the strike.
    Or was it just a sound randomly played?
    Could someone clear me up ;)

    As I recall, it's only a sound randomly played.
    I also remmember someone made a particle effect of lightning, I just can't find it now... But when you do find it, and use it, please make the lightning appear before the thunder! Unlike some people I know who make them appear in the same time (which is OK) or the light after the sound (which is horrible).
    Good luck, anyway!

    Well I tried to search it for but with no results. I'll just put the sound only. Thanks!

    Also it seems like the env_screenoverlay is missing from the .vmf
    Is it just me or is it really missing? I can see it in Entity Report but not in map, when I press Go To it just goes next to light_environment, which is empty.
