Skybox Tutorial: Rasta & [ToC]Blackjak



Adding a skybox to your map is different for CoD:WaW as it uses an animated skybox.

OK, first we need to add a skybox model to our map.

Open your map in Radiant and press N, then add this as the key and value:

Example:

Key: skyboxmodel
Value: skybox_pel2
(other skybox models can be found in /raw/xmodel)

We then need to add all the worldspawn settings that we want (see below!).

Next we need to add a traditional skybox to stop any leak errors in the compile. Draw a box around the entire map with no gaps and texture it with the corresponding sky texture:

textures/usage/sky

Next we need to add this line to our levelname.csv /zone_source/mp_levelname.csv

xmodel,skybox_pel2


Compile and run your map and you should see your true skybox.



Here are the stock skybox settings:
