    Hello there,

    I'm making a map based in the desert, but unlike the 642 other maps set in the desert theme, i want it to be raining.

    I'd like to request that someone make a sky texture of a desert storm. It would look a lot like this:

    Perhaps a current tf2 sky could be modified to look similar to this?

    Thanks,
    Wolfiejo

    You may be able to do this yourself, which I think is a better skill than having someone else do it for you,

    just get gcf scape, get the skybox of sky_hurricane (its from the swamp pack), (i think) use VTFEDIT to make it .tga which can be opened in photoshop/paint.net, then do a color change on it. Also Thundermounts sky could be re-colored i think to do this.

    If you haven't downloaded the pack before it went into the game, you'll be missing the skybox textures. Here they are..

    Thats not too bad (the image link is a little broken)

    You should smooth out the clouds a little imo.

    woah it's like they're exactly the same

    This is the badlands sky. You should be able to get away with using it until somebody decides it's worth their time to make you a skybox.

    Hmm, Did you make that tomhoen? I'd have to see it in-game to see it better.

    Thanks for the input guys. this map is only about half done and i hate to release things till they are beta or so, i may release pics though.

    Well, if your looking for a map that has some gameplay testing behind it, release it now! No one cares if it looks crappy in alpha.

    Well, i would, but that's not how my mapping mind works heh. I start detailing right away, it takes a long time. I know thats like the worst way to map but thats how I do it.
