Better Leak Skyboxes

A Texture Mod for Half-Life 2

An improved version of my other Leak Skies mod

!!WARNING!! THE LIGHTING WILL LOOK VERY ODD ON SOME MAPS, FEEL FREE TO EDIT THE MAPS AND UPLOAD IT; BUT REMEMBER TO ADD ME TO CREDITS !!WARNING!!

Keep in mind I am using ReShade, your experience WILL be different. If you want i will release the reshade.

This is an improved version of my other Leak Skies mod, this mod aims to make it more like the 2001 era (Airexchange era).
After day 1 due to being along the coast the sky/air is less polluted and instead uses wasteland/quarry skies.
Day 3 has no changes as airexchange (Nova Prospekt) Has been destroyed.

    I am not an expert on this but these skyboxes would definitely look better if they were rotated to suns's position if that's even possible. Still, the greenish sky beta always used will always stay in my heart so I'll wait for the mod's next updates (if there wil be any).

    I love the concept, but this definitely needs improvement. For starters, the skyboxes just don't look that good, if you can't find higher quality textures, could you try upscaling them? Also, out of curiosity, what era was the original Beta Skies mod based off of?

    Should probably make them HDR compatible. Not very difficult to do.

    For textures that have been compiled with HDR:

    sky
    {

        $basetexture skybox/sky_day03_02lf
        $hdrcompressedtexture skybox/sky_day03_02_hdrlf

        $nofog 1
        $nomip 1
        $ignorez 1

    }


    For textures without HDR:

    sky
    {

        $basetexture skybox/sky_day03_03lf
        $hdrbasetexture skybox/sky_day03_03lf

        $nofog 1
        $nomip 1
        $ignorez 1

    }


    Notice the difference with $hdrcompressedtexture and $hdrbasetexture.

    I've got the pre-formatted sanitized skybox materials here as a developer's resource if you want to compare or look at examples.
