How Do I make Out Door Areas?

I just want to know how to go about making an outdoor area in DOOM. I have played a few MOD's and noticed how you can look around and instead of being totally covered in by walls, you are in an open field with a wide open sky...


...how do I perform this trick?

Thankx!

You mean just have a sky for a ceiling, or have a room where the floor ends at the skyline? If you want an outdoor area, just use the ceiling texture FSKY1 and it will leave the ceiling blank and draw the sky.

Yes, sorry, I ment I wanted to have the sky begin at the floor not the ceiling.

It's F_SKY1, not FSKY1

I thought F_SKY1 was the Heretic sky. They're different like that.

Anyways, what you'll do is make an "edge" around the room where you want the sky to touch the floor. Pretend it's going to be a low wall; you lay out the area the same way. So instead of the room ending at a solid wall, it'll end at another sector. Take that other sector (which would be behind where your wall would normally be) and set it's ceiling height equal to the floor height, and make the ceiling F_SKY1. No other textures needed.

I can post a demo WAD if you want.

If you don't mind...
