I have no idea what the coding would be, or where to place it. I looked at some of the Skybox files and there was no .CGF file, so the code must be placed somewhere else.

You can add your own skyboxes through menus.cfg in the data folder.

Line 99 of that file:
loopix = "daysky"

For eg.
If you were to add your own skybox images to the loopix folder
Make sure you have 6 images named skyboxfilename_**.jpg to correspond to each side of the skybox(_ft, _bk ect file extensions), like all the other skyboxes.

then your cfg would go something like this.
loopix = "daysky skyboxfilename"

Its fairly straightforward, and thats the easiest way I know how to do it.
If theres an easier way someone correct me.

take care

This worked very well for me, after a bit of double checking on file names and locations...

Thank you very much, so glad I can import my own custom textures now...

Thanks!

How can you add textures to an existing map? What once you start a map you'll never think of or want to add a new texture or you have to start completely over? That kinda sucks.

I have tried every tutorial I can find. ( youtube and on here)
I am not seeming to get it tho. Says "cannot read packages.Cfg."

Yes I have tried in Data and all other ways I have seen demonstrated but it is still not working.
Can you elaborate a bit more into it please.

I tried on a new map and on already created aswell.

opened notepad and created the CFG like you posted. Have put them under my folder ( located in the textures section of PAS files) also tried a folder under a random area in PAS files aswell ( obvious error)

Basically I need a full on dummies guide lol.

Thanks in advance
