Okay, I am very confused on how to use the Skybox. First, I only know SkyBlue and SkyStormy. If you know any others, that would be helpful. Second, do you have to be in play mode to see the sky or does it come up in the editor? If you have to play the map, how do you take screenshots during the game? Full of questions aren't I? :p

The sky only appears in 'play' mode. You cannot see it in the editor. So if you wanted to take screenshots I think with the new editor there is a screenshot button in play mode (not sure about that) Or you can do what I do and that is to press either 'Print Screen' or 'Alt+print screen', minimise AOM and go into paint and paste the picture. That's how you get screenshots of cinematics etc

Be mindful that you need to also be at the right angle to see sky box. If you happen to want to take a screenshot of it, just use print screen as suggested above. I personally do the same thing.

.....oh please....

just make a trigger with the following, if you are going to take a screenshot: Camera Cut Set Obscured units off Render Sky Render Fog of War OFF

Condition: Always, Run Inmmediately

also, if you are just doing this to make just a screenshot and not an actual playable scenario, where you are just using 1 players units objects, then turn victory conditions off. one thing too, you cant take screenshots during cinematic mode. and you can also take screenshots pressing Ctrl + Alt + f12.....i think
