Your MAPINFO looks correct. If it doesn't work, make sure that SKY4 exists in your wad/pk3 not only as a graphic patch, but also as a texture definition.

I'm not sure what does this mean, but if you were trying to use either the F_SKY1 flat or the SKY4 texture as a wall texture, that's not how to make a sky appear properly.

I'm not sure what you mean by "too high." The sector height should be relatively immaterial. The F_SKY1 flat is essentially just a clear texture that allows the player to see through it to the image of the sky behind it. That's how you can make buildings look like they're higher than the surrounding walls, using the fact that the "ceiling" is clear and the engine ignores wall textures that are between two sectors with F_SKY1 ceiling flats.

Actually I was referring to this, but I suppose the one described in that thread works too if he's mapping in Vanilla format.

I'm bad at describing things but what you have to do is apply the linedef effect to one of your sky sector linedefs, and this will extend the floor and ceiling behind that linedef "into infinity", making it appear as if there's no wall there, as described in the wiki page (assuming your mapping in one of the ZDoom formats or UDMF in the first place).

This special is to be placed on a line in the map, which is then “extended” into infinity. It will only create an infinite view on that particular line, so you may need to place it on multiple lines to get the desired effect. Useful for skyboxes.
