That looks much, MUCH better! Will the Consul replace Dr. Breen in the next release?

The skybox fog looks like butts.

Not on a decent PC. With an Intel GMA you cant really see the graphical quality.

Pretty sure if I had a GTX690 it would still look like butts. The 3d skybox fog color doesn't match the world fog color. That's why it looks silly hope this helps.

No really, on a decent PC it doesnt. I saw by myself.

How could it not be? It's Source. It (well, the Hl2's one at least) looks nearly identical whether you run it 2013 top PC and if you launch it on… I don't know… a stone. Just like ScarT said, the deal is with the colors. A kind of solution here is to implement a partly opague, hollow cylinder brush with tools\toolsblack texture — so the fog «from» sky_camera also casts partly (because of the partial translucency) on the brush and, therefore, on all sky. This way both the Citadel and the sky texture will become fogged with the same color. The most important detail here is to not make the skybrush-fog too intensive so it wouldn't just hide the texture behind it. So one should set the FX Alpha for the brush for… I'd say, 150. Well, you can change it in-game realtime with env_fire *** alpha <0-255> input to see which one will be a better fit.

Hope this helps.

That's how Source works. You'll use a bunch of hacks to get a desired thing working.

Oh, I forgot to mention that the hollow brush should be converted to func_brush (guess you already figured this out from the fx alpha aspect, but anyway). It could be a simle hollow cube as well, but this being the case, the fog'll have a tendency to «condense» in the corners. An ideal thing will be a dome-shaped brush, but I think it doesn't worth it actually.

The cylinder works perfectly. The edge you can just baaarely see even enhances the sky and everything.
