Hello. I've just made this sky shader:


qer_editorimage textures/skies/sky

q3map_lightRGB 1.50887573964 1.50887573964 1.50887573964

q3map_skylight 200 5

surfaceparm nomarks

surfaceparm sky

surfaceparm noimpact

surfaceparm nodlight

q3map_lightmapFilterRadius 0 8

q3map_sunExt 1.000000 0.997119 0.857641 350 142 35 1 2



skyParms textures/japsky/sky 1024 -

"q3map_sunExt 1.000000 0.997119 0.857641 350 142 35 1 2"

That line is supposed to draw me a nice shiny sphere of sunnieness!
But it doesn't.
The sky textures and the light itself works fine though... but I want my pretty sun!

Help me ppl. :wan:

If you want lenseflares, then I don't think that's possible, the various sun parameters are only to control the light from the sun, and to learn them, read the shader manual!

Ow... I see. I guess I'll follow your advice and go learn some shader code then. Could you give me the link for shader manual? Im quite lost around here. :P

Erm, I got it when I downloaded Radiant, I don't know if you can download it seperately, but when you find it, learn it. It's well worth it for the things you can do with shaders, far more than is possible with cut and paste editing.
