I haven't used env_sky before, but could you place a brush on the outside of your null sky brushes textured in SKY and use a light_environment like normal?

You're reading some pretty heavy stuff, guys! Don't forget to leave room for laughter :lol:

I committed to re-reading the entire Discworld series at the start of lockdown. Currently on 38 out of 41. Gonna be very sad when it's finished again. RIP, Terry. I've gotten so much more out of them this time round - I was just too young to get half of the jokes or concepts as a kid. Stupendously good universe to immerse yourself in.

Otherwise I'm big into crime thrillers and satire. Christopher Brookmyre & Carl Hiaasen are huge influences on my own creative work. Both gritty and dark, but with absolutely gut-punching satire that just floors me.

I'd like to get more into Sci-fi and Fantasy, as I'm sure I'd enjoy them, but they're quite intimidating genres to dip your toes into unguided. The top of my list is The Three Body Problem which has been recommended to me by so many people.

Great questions.

1.

I use the wheel for scrubbing forward and backward through footage. The gear paddles are used to Mark In and Mark Out (engage with clutch to Go To In or Go To Out) and the pedals are used to cut, trim or roll as needed. With this setup combined with the chair, I can usually edit at around 300kph

2. Absolutely, that's the one down-side. I wanted to go all-electric, but the tech is still too expensive.

3. Whilst in Premiere Pro, I use a replica of Lando Norris' 2020 Silverstone grand prix helmet designed by a six-year-old.

Work got absolutely crazy so I haven't had time to work on this for a week or so. Really looking forward to finishing it. I think my racing chair will be the next big challenge.

Following on from the success of Jessie's func_vehicle jam, I've got another mapping challenge to occupy our bored, locked down minds for the start of 2021. (Aus and NZ can take part too, despite having pretty much figured this whole Covid thing out).

In honour of working from home, the goal of this mapping challenge is to turn your workspace/bedroom/home office into a classic padman-style rats map.

Scale is up to you, although being actually fun to play is important so I recommend making it big enough to be a good deathmatch arena.
We want to see creative use of items to aid navigation, a clever use of the furniture for routing and of course photos for comparison!

This map jam will end on the 21st of March 2021, plus the obligatory 2-week extension.
Jessie will stream the entries, as per, and makes a special request to also include theme-accurate func_vehicles which i wholeheartedly do not condone.

Feel free to use any Goldsource or Source game, singleplayer or multi. If we get a bunch of HLDM maps I'll put them on a server as per usual, though.
You could even make a rats rats map, although that might break the universe.
