I'm new to map making and I need some help on sky shaders :) :) I'm taking some tutorials on map making and I'm stuck right now because I can't get the sky shaders to work:mad: no skybox no nothing:mad: oh and I'm using JK2Raniant ok when I load texture skies every thing is going good but when I try to apply skies/stars to the surfaces of the brush I get this message in the status bar.. so I compile the map anyway (bsp FullVis) after compile I get a message in the status bar that says.. so I test the map out and instead of skies/stars I get this.. ok so I try another skies shader (skies/yavin on the wall and skies/sky on the ceiling) and what do I get.. I don't know if you can see the ceiling but it has a white background and black letters (it looks like the skies texture on JK2Radiant) so as you can see (if you understand me)I need help (please) so if you can help please reply (:::::::: )::::::::::::::::::::::::::::>

Your images don't show because you can't link them from your hard drive ;) You need to upload the images (in JPG format) somewhere and then use the IMG tags to that URL address.

Anyway, from what I'm understanding, you should only use one sky shader at a time.. either use all of skies/yavin, or all of any other sky. I haven't looked at JK2 in a long time, but I do remember that a lot of the sky shaders were messed up and only a few actually worked. Try one sky at a time to see which one works and which one you like (just so long as you remember that only one sky shader can be used).

For the skies/sky one, I think that's happening because it's an actual texture and not a shader. You can tell textures apart from shaders in the texture window because shaders have a white line border around them (for some silly reason Raven decided to use one sky image for all the shaders (the light blue one with "SKY" written on it), so you don't get a preview of what they are).
