How to use those skies properly with boom.

Two steps:

 

Step one:

Add those skies to your wad and use the ANIMDEFS lamp, and just like you make liquids, do it with the sky sprites.

 

Step two:

In your map make a demi sector and brush the "Lower", "Middle" and "Upper" with the sky texture and make the linedef tag 271.

 

 

Each sky has 64 sprites, you dont have to use all of them, but remmember, as more as you use sprites, the sky animation will be smoother

I finally got around to testing the animated skyboxes - HOLY SHIT THEY ARE AMAZING! I'm a bit upset that nobody else took the time to comment, because wow, these are amazing. I may be using these in a few of my maps very soon :P

You should make more of these, they look awesome.

 

How long does it take you to make an average sky texture?

If you have a single sky, or small amout of skies, you can post here...

But if you got a large sky pack and you're planing of publishing more you better make your own thread for your stuff.

 

Uni: if it's a simple sky with clouds only it would take no longer than half an hour, but skies combined with mountains and source light would take hour, 2 hours...

Holy cow, you have a fantastic talent! I'm especially impressed with the underground one. Reminds me of the lush background one might see in one of the Donkey Kong Country games :)

@Eradrop's animated lightning sky works well on my brutalist concept

Oh wow! The lightning effect looks superb in general and the sky itself really fit the style and mood of the map. Together it looks great, well done!

Any chance you can make some of these into "true" skyboxes - six-sided cubes? In this way they can be used in source ports that support such skyboxes (e.g., GZDooM), which eliminate the stretching and color-fading at the apex of the skies.

 

Very nice skies, by the way. Thanks for your efforts.

Just to say I really appreciate you making classic skies since there's no shortage of sky boxes from other games and communities. That said no reason not to Sky box these too, but don't forget about the classicists :)

This would look even better if ZDoom's "lightning" effect via MAPINFO can be synced to the lightning strikes.

@Eradrop: Why not both apocalypse skies?

I like the red one, but feel like the grey might be too grey. It seems like the standard Doom textures are mostly grey and brown, so a grey sky might not pop like the other skies do.

 

My personal favorites so far are the caveworld, and the asteroids falling. They're all amazing so far and I really look forward to seeing how people use them in maps!
