    This may be useful to you. It is a tool to create skyboxes.
    It has its limitations, sadly.

    If you want to place it on your map, you must place your skybox in cstrike/gfx/env, then open your Valve Hamer Editor and look for an option to select the skybox you created. I dont remember exactly where was that option but i know is easy to find, something like "map properties" or "map options".

    Some random sky generator, and ensure that the cl_skyname in the VHE is set to the skyname.

    This link contains both Source and GoldSource sky list (though directed to the sky list). It also has suggested environment light settings.

    You can make the texture of the sky using the program Skymaker. I’ll find the sky for any map, I just need a screenshot of the map.
