Only happens when I get higher up in the map, I tilt my screen and the skybox gets brighter and darker depending on the angle. This issue just became prominent recently, I have no idea what's causing this. Any help would be appreciated.

Did you also try changing some graphics settings and see if the effect persists? Critical settings are softshadows, stencil shadows or shadow maps, r_useFBO.

I believe I changed the Shadows Implementation to Stencil, I'll check after work and update the post if that fixes it.

I've used the soft shadows option since they day I started working on my mission (few weeks back) and never noticed this issue.

Maybe fly around the map using noclip  with various r_show* cvars enabled, to see if you can identify the issue? I am at a loss. I hope one of the veteran mappers / engine coers pops in soon.

This looks a little like what happens when you noclip into the void and the engine disables lights for performance. Are you sure the player isn't clipping into the void somehow?

No luck.

Yes, that's exactly what it looks like. It only happens if I move the camera up and down. I'm well within the play area. I'll try swapping out the skybox and see if that helps.

does this happen when you cross through a visportal? I had a weird glitch similar to this when I was making my FM. It caused a lot of weird black squares and I was apparently in the void when crossing through that visportal because all the visportals on the map opened up/were yellow. I fixed it by removing the visportal and making a new one elsewhere

If deleting the skybox fails to solve the issue, I'll check all my visportals and rebuild them to see if that fixes it. I'll update the post when I get the chance to do this.

Ok apparently it just appears to be this skybox: tdm_moon_foggy.pfb

That's somewhat unfortunate, that skybox was a good fit. Oh well, on to the second best!

I'll eventually have to settle on making my own.

If you can upload your map to cloud I can take a look
