Show more


This is a simple script used to change the skybox on any map based on the skyboxes it finds from your search paths.

extract .py file here: "SourceFilmmaker\game\workshop\scripts\sfm\mainmenu"

This script also shows you a preview of the skybox if the image exists here

How to set up reading the image from the vtf file itself

  1. move the "vtfedit" folder to "SourceFilmmaker\game\workshop\scripts\sfm\mainmenu" and thats it. the script should now show you a preview image if it doesn't exist here:

Note: some of the skyboxes it finds may not work, you need to check the console for errors to see what the problem is.

The save skybox gets saved to here "SourceFilmmaker\game\usermod\cfg\mapname.cfg"

if you want to try to do it manually follow this guide

known issues

  1. The script doesnt show up.

your gameinfo.txt might not be formatted right or has errors in it, it should look like this, replace yours with this one temporary to confirm.

feel free to modify the script for your own use if you find any bugs or have suggestions message me in the comments below.
