    RaVaGe, thanks for the hint suggestion that will help a TON!. I should have been more specific about the skybox I didn't mean a 3D one I know how to do that :) What I meant was how would you suggest I draw the actual skybox texture over the map instead of making one giant box around everything and hollowing it out bleh. The wire frame pics above show what that would look like and its horrible lol.

    Word of advice: Do not ever host BMP images again. Anywhere. Ever. For any reason.

    If you don't find out how to make a 2Dskybox, you can still make a big box around your map, but as a 3D skybox :)
    I mean, make a big box surrounding you 3D skybox camera, that would look like a 2D skybox.
    But it's quite dummy, so the orthodox way may still be the quickest ^^

    Well I am deffinetly trying RaVaGe's idea. Still thinking about the 2D aspect thanks for the idea though PoignardAzur.

    I am thinking about shortening the map up to but its hard to find stuff I don't like after spending so much time on it. The I like the outdoor area and probably won't touch it. It has a tunnel system to I already shortened up quite significantly. The interior has some confined area's like short little hallways that connect rooms that I feel are kinda uneccesary.
