Lovely skies, but why are grimmnight_dn.tga and miramar_dn.tga 1024*1024 textures? Since they are one colour you could just as well use 16*16 and save texture memory.

They were not made for Q3 only, not all games can handle skies with different resolution on each texture.

That seems like a strange limitation, but fair enough.

It all comes down to: If there are a slight color change in those large that makes the sky complete, I can't replace them with something else that changes that. If someone wanna make a bottom 16^2 that is fine with me.

Actually, the _dn in those skies should be in a uniform color that matches the edges of the sides, so I don't see any problem for someone making a 16^2 _dn in Q3.

Added this thread to the Link Resource Sticky. That was also the reason I changed to thread subject slightly. Great work! :)

I just was asking myself why you noticed the capital S and not the small r :) !!
Lovely skyboxes, will use them for sure!

Keep on your great work.
