no remote linking, put up some html

I'm not sure what you mean. Give me an example and I'll fix whatever seems to be the problem.

ReX, it doesn't show the image, it shows an image that says remote linking is forbidden. Make an HTML with those skies on them so we can view them.

Actually, I didn't just stretch the skies, I manually created (drew) the additional scenery (such as the foothills in front of the original hills).

Ah, I understand. Because the images were in my cache, they displayed fine when I clicked on the link. When I used another computer, however, I realized what the problem was. It's fixed now. Sorry for the inconvenience.

Effectively defeating the whole purpose of making tall skies.

What this will do is no different than if you use the Stretch Skies option in ZDooM. Most 128-high skies will look crappy when stretched in this manner. Which is why I took the trouble to make the sky taller by drawing out the extra hills and sky/clouds.

For the blue colored sky I started with my new tall sky, then replaced only the sky and clouds. To get the brilliant blue color in-game, I used a custom PLAYPAL in my wad. (Many thanks to Csabo for creating the PLAPAL lump for one of my earlier projects.)
