Half-Life Skys

By Chris 'autolycus' Bokitch

To show sky in Half-Life, use the generic texture named SKY wherever you want the sky to appear, then you set the actual sky name as the value of the "environment map (cl_skyname)" property in the Map Properties (accessible through the Map menu). Below are the valid sky names and their corresponding lateral textures (the top and bottom texture of the skybox has been left out to make for easier formatting).

    Note: when setting the name of the sky in the editor, do not put cl_ in front of the skyname. For example, 2desert is correct, while cl_2desert is not correct.

Due to the high graphical content of this page, its load time may be lengthy.
