while we're on skies is there a pack or something of the different skies that people have made that one can download. I see some of you when you post your maps on-line with like real skies you know blue with white clouds.
Make sure if you use the ones from the above link, that you resize them to 256x256 or they won't load in Quake 2. Hipshot also released a map not so long ago with a cartoon like blue sky, I recommend this one:
Thank you very much Derimok those are awsome and appreciate the resize tip !!
Edit: I was reading some of the replies to the skies hipshot made and I noticed he said they were pictures of real skies !! Is this true I can take pictures of the sky outside my house and put them in Q2

I'm yet to take full advantage of the tutorial, but I'd like to give it a shot when I get some time.
Heres some food for thought: www.planetside.co.uk/gallery/f/tg2/?g2_page=2 All of those images were generated within the program. There's no reason why the same results couldn't be achieved with some hard work via (photoshop if you have it) and Skypaint. Skypaint is an expensive program too, so it may not be for everyone.
You can use the demo version, however it gives you a watermark on your skies bottom image.
A lot of your time could be spent mapping, and instead using the already available skies out there, but its up to you whether you want to learn the necessary programs. Good luck.
You are correct,used your link, working now, thanks grieve. Definitely not what was showing when I was there originally, completely different page now, ...maybe I have been hacked lol. NOPE, just an old school brain fart, was on the review page not the download page.
