    Hello there!

    This is my first in (hopefully) a series of skybox textures you guys can use. This time I made a clear sky on a late night - and used the goldrush sky as a base. Feel free to use this sky but please credit me and/or let me know.

    If you guys have any feedback or problems, please let me know.

    What's inside the download file (.zip - 334kB)?
    • One folder [sky_goldnight_01]
    • Five .vtf files [sky_goldnight_01xx.vtf]
    • Six .vmt files [sky_goldnight_01xx.vmt]
    • One .vmf file with the recommended lighting settings and entities [sky_goldnight_01settings.vmf]
    The template map seen on the screenshots is NOT included in the download file.

    How do I use the skybox texture?
    It's simple!
    • Put the .vtf and .vmt files in steam/steamapps/yoursteamusername/team fortress 2/tf/materials/skybox (if the skybox folder doesn't exist, make one in the materials folder).
    • Place the .vmf file in steam/steamapps/yoursteamusername/sourcesdk_content/tf/mapsrc and open it in hammer.

    DOWNLOAD:
    Dropbox
    TF2Maps.net


    I hope you like the sky and enjoy the view!

    Looks a lot like morning to me, I imagine the sun has just broken the night sky. But that's no bad thing at all! :D

    EDIT: Did I mention it's beautiful?

    there's this ugly line vertical seam/line in the skybox, is that intentional on purpose ?
    sky looks wonderful. nice and moody atmosphere :)

    The seam is just a photoshop mistake when i made the montage. But it's not noticable ingame at all! :)

    well, definetly late to the punch, but skybox light scheme numbers please? The skybox is beautiful, but the descriptions lack any form of lighting, pitch, and etc.

    @coltnweston What you're looking for should be in the download file. Also, since it's based on goldrush (also mentioned in the description), you can always use settings of goldrush as a starting point.
