I have no idea how to set the proper light_environment settings for a map like zafod, can someone please help. Ive looked around and cant find anything.

Also, what skybox did Zafod use and where can i find it?

They're not to hard to do at all boss, Fiddle with these settings

Pitch; I can't remember what I normally set this to but I'm sure its a - tive angle to produce alot of shadows say -60 I think (I maybe wrong I don't have my other RMF's here to look at what I've got the angle set to)

Brightness; ie how light you want it to be, if you're after night time like zaford go for a dark grey or near black :)

the pitch is, the pitch of the sun .. so the angle it will shine upon the ground thus this will affect the shadows

the sky is: fullmoon

the color is mainly a whitish slightly grey
ambience has white with a hint of blue if i remeber correctly

the brightness is upto you ..
