You can't do much about those cuts. That's what happens when you make those cylinder zone.
Keep working on it. And you might want to add more replace me bruhes and connect it to what Renegade is building.

@papercoffe: http://www.ut99.org/viewtopic.php?f=5&t=2683&start=24
@Whitey:
Select a light. Goto it's properties.
Set the flare texture at Display>Skin
Then set Lighting>bCorona true
You have to hit the rebuild button.

The flare gets auto colored by the light color. You can also adjust its size whit Display>DrawScale

Don't kill me Myth, I mentioned in my previous post that I switched my room to branch off the two exits in Whitey's room on the pic you last posted.
It's a corner room with exits pointing towards papercoffees room and the other exit in Whitey's. Screenshots tonight. Promise. :mrgreen:

@Renegade: Ok, I thought you were taking the upper one... Or are you taking all 3 of them?

God you guys have occupied all the brushes... What should I do?

I have made a basic 3 layer skybox. Ok, maybe my skyboxes are anything but basic.
Colors can be tweaked by changing 2 lights. (and optinally a texture that give the sky gradient color)

I've been thinking If I want 100% realistic clouds I need 4 layers and that stresses low end gpu's which unfortunately many laptops have.

lol Gen... it's yours... :D we don't want it.

I'll merge when I get the skybox working or when somebody posts something new and mostly finished.
Currently my sky crashed the map. It uses custom textures and It wasn't imported properly and then UED2 bullshit. Whenever I look at it it crashes. In direct3d mode it looks fuuked up. In game it's INVISIBLE and I've already accidentally fallen asleep today, it's getting late, and tomorrow is one big day. So yeah, l8ters.
