2 Skys in one map?

Thu Nov 18, 2021 3:13 am

Hello. I'm working on a WAD, with an area that is supposed to have a different skybox. I have used Sky2 in MAPINFO, tho i set the action special for the sector yet nothing seemed to work. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Post your map. If something went wrong we need to be able to investigate.

Yes, you could use a different texture as in your example Demosbase (Sky5), but then the sky will be a flat image, which would not be a convincing sky.

A better solution would be to use a linespecial 190 for DiHF or UDMF (use the sky image between TX_ markers, or a linespecial 271 for Boom or MBF (use the sky image in Texture1 and PNAMES). This way you could have a different sky for each tagged sector.

Here I use 5 different skies

Whichever format you want to use, the sky image must be tiled properly and be of the correct size, default is 256 x 128 to repeat 4 times for 360°. Or 512 x 128 to repeat twice for 360° or 1024 x128 for 360° as in Plutonia.wad.

Thanks :D I used the linedef action 190 and it worked just fine.
