    hey,
    i'm having a few problems with the skybox in my map.
    -when i look up to the sky, it gets blurry and flashes the last screen i see
    -whenever i noclip out of the playable map, it would show the whole map again, but farther away.
    -another thing, the 3d skybox wont show at all. it only shows where i made it (with the sky_camera far away from the playable part of the map)
    does anyone know the reason for these?
    these problems are getting me pretty pissed off :unsure:

    Make sure neither your level or 3d skybox have a leak. (Map > Load Pointfile)

    Yes, it's most likely a leak

    I recommend my noob-friendly:

    Quick and Dirty 3d Skybox

    but yeah, the stuff you said is what happens when you have a leak :)

    are you compiling with vis? fast or full? that will happen every time if you dont vis. otherwise, you have a leak.
