    Question How to Change The Map Skybox?

    The default one is pretty dull, so I tried using the command sv_skyname on console to change the skybox, but it didn't work. Probably cause dota doesn't have any skyboxes to find? If that's the case, then how do I extract skyboxes from other games to dota sfm so it can recognize them?

    Dota 2 (and the Dota 2 version of SFM) only uses skyboxes in reflections, so you won't be able to render an actual skybox. Your best bet is to simply use textures representing a skybox to the best of your abilities, unless the devs actually give us skyboxes back!

    That's a shame. But when I watched the Custom Games trailer, it had some pretty decent skies (especially on dessert duo map). Do you think those were just really big texture planes?

    Maybe it will come later in the beta?

    Perhaps. It's not uncommon to use "sky cards" (texture plane, as you said) as replacement for distant details and sky boxes in general.
