Sun needs to be in the opposite side

Hi again Well, I got a sky which I think might even fit my map. But lets say I want the sun to shine from east. So I set it to east. But the nice orange effect in the skybox (where the sun is supposed to be) is in the west or any other side. How do I rotate the skytexture in the right place? Thanks in advance, fawk3s

    Until you don't make a new skybox, this will not work.
    You can't rotate it.
    You could try to mix up the vmt files to reference other sides of the sky but that would end up in ugly edges where the skybox textures are bordering and stuff.

    Why not just rotate the map by 180o? Rather than make a new custom skybox - which you would need to do as your rotating all the textures around, there is not .vmt trick for that.
