    So I'm trying to create a map set in space, but I'm not quite sure how to create a skybox similar to one like rd_asteriod's. Does anyone know how to make one? Any help or tips is always appreciated.

    Another way is to just do what asteroid does and use toolsblack instead of skybox, and use that massive starry-sky prop. Find the decompiled maps thread, pick the vmf for asteroid, and you can see for yourself.

    Well I tried doing that, but the problem is it dosen't emitt much light. There is a skybox setting for asteroid though, but its the same as goldrush's.

    What you gotta do for the Asteroid method is use any skybox and make a 3D skybox that surrounds the map in a hollow toolsblack func_brush cube that has shadows turned off.

    Alternatively just make or download a space skybox.
