Select the texture called "sky" and put it where you want,i usually make a huge box around the map,then i go on tools and "make it hollow".


EDIT: you mean make your own texture and use it as sky?

He means that's not the proper way to make the skybox (except in some very rare cases).
...and that's the bottom line because Mate de Vita said so.

You want me to break it down for you?

When you build a proper sky box, VIS says "Hey, this stuff is on the outside, lets trash it all." Thusly, you are, mostly, only rendering what the player can see.
When you build a giant box around your map, and sky it, it causes VIS to keep the outside faces. That means, all the stuff you wouldn't be able to see with a proper sky box, will be rendered. It will approximately increase world polygons by 1/3 %.

Take a look at Mate's picture and you'll understand.

To be fair many laptops are sold at the moment with middling processors and very basic graphics cards, mainly Intel ones.
