If its an issue you can change it yourself :rolleyes:

its just that its the default hl sky. and it terribly sucks. and i know that many people arent going to go through the trouble themselves and change it. and on your part, it would be best to pick a sky that best suits the map, along with lighting.

anyways, good brush work on the cliffs.

This is only a semi-serious map that i made in less han 3 hours. .. it has the default HLsky... oh god no...

If you know of a dod sky that has more rocks in it that the default hl one, the feel free to change it with ripent :carrot:

Constructive comments:

change the sky cause it's ugly and does not fit with map's textures.

03-05-2005, 06:59 PM
Thanks, but that point has already been covered

How can you ask for constructive comments, and then turn your nose up when somebody tries to give you feedback?

03-07-2005, 04:52 AM
It only takes one person to comment on the sky, which looks fine anyway :rolleyes:

I hate to jump on the bandwagon, but no it doesn't. It looks like crap. The textures do not match the skybox. Sorry. That's like releasing a weapon model with the default HL hands and skins plastered all over it. Sure, the model might be great, but how the hell can you really tell since it's using the same crap from HL that n00b mappers and modellers have been using since 1998? None of it has ever really fit a custom map that I can recall.

How hard is it for you, the mapper, to go into hammer, and type in the name of another skybox texture set in the map properties? I'll bet it would only be really difficult if you had nothing but stubs for hands, and even then, you could bite down on some chopsticks and peck the letters in like a chicken. Using the shift key would be a pain, but it would still make more sense than people downloading a half-assed map and going through all the rigamarole of using ripent to change out the skybox.

Change the skybox, and it would look like less of a half-assed creation and more like a map that would be worthy of some serious constructive criticism.

You sir are an idiot. You probably havent even downloaded the map have you? which renders what you think pretty worthless. You cant give constructive critism for a couple of JPGs.

If youd read the thread you would see it is a half arsed map.

Dunno why you wasted your time writing all that :o

Especially since it would be much quicker to edit the sky with ripent than recompile the map :rolleyes:

03-07-2005, 04:35 PM
I read the thread, and felt it necessary to go ahead and reply. Yup, half-assed map. It shows. 3 hours, gotcha. Read that before replying, too. Why should I have to edit your map because you were too lazy to add a different skybox? Lol.

Bottom line: Using the stock Hl skybox has always been a basic "no-no" rule of mapping for DoD. Why bother asking for constructive criticism on a goof off project? And FYI, I did download the map, and yes, it does look like hell with the skybox. Oh, and the idiot comment: Classy.

:D Now that ^ is hilarious. I love it. I have the downstairs neighbors banging on their ceiling I was laughing so loud. SERIOUSLY, THANK YOU!! :D

ok kids thats enough. :D If Scuzz wants to leave it that way, then let him. Who cares? Don't like it, don't play it..simple as that. If you say you didn't like the default sky then say so and move on. Scuzz has the right to change it if he wants to or not.

03-07-2005, 05:26 PM
Fair enough ;)

OT: Your sig is frightening :(
