----------------------------------------------------------------------

USAGE:

Say you're developing or playing a level and you want to see what one
of these sky textures looks like in-game...

Use a wad utility such as WinTex or NWT to rename the sky you want to
use in lucisky2.wad. Rename it to the appropriate sky name in Doom or
Doom II:
      sky1    Doom      Episode 1
      sky2    Doom      Episode 2
      sky3    Doom      Episode 3
      sky4    Doom      Episode 4  (Ultimate Doom only)
      rsky1   Doom II   Map 01-11
      rsky2   Doom II   Map 12-22
      rsky3   Doom II   Map 23-32

For example, say you've got a Doom II level which uses MAP07, and it's
contained in the wad MYLEVEL.WAD; and you want to see what the map
looks like using the new BLUSTARS sky:
   load lucisky2.wad into WinTex or NWT
   and rename BLUSTARS to RSKY1

   To view the new sky in this example:
     doom2 -file mylevel.wad lucisky2.wad -warp 07

If you want to permanently add the sky texture to your pwad, just
open both wads (with two copies of WinTex running at the same time),
COPY the renamed sky texture from lucisky2.wad, and PASTE it into your
pwad.  The procedure for doing this with NWT is more involved, so I'll
ask you to read the NWT documentation for details.
 

* Construction *

     LUCIUS' CRAZY SKY'S

   "u can find me on the coolest dwango server...Boston if ya didnt know"

Most of these sky's I found in wads and then I edited them, making them
much cooler. 

"THESE SKY'S ARE NOT IN A WAD FORM SO IF U DO NOT KNOW HOW TO PUT THEM 
 IN, SAVE YOURSELF SOME TIME AND DONT BOTHER GETTING THEM"

All of the sky's are regular "bmp" files and just need to be renamed in
order to be placed in a wad using wintex or whatever u want to use.
The sky names are pretty self explanatory but just incase your really
dumb...here's a list of what you'll find.

blustars.bmp- this is obviously a blue sky that is stars!
crazysky.bmp- this is doom2 rsky3...I made it much cooler by making the
mountains green.
greensky.bmp- this is a green sky...clouds not stars.
grenstar.bmp- green stars :)
mnts1.bmp- mountains with tree's I colored in...(at least thats what
they are saposed to be), well it looks cool anyway.
mnts2.bmp- I found a really cool mnts sky and just made it look better.
redsky.bmp- red clouds...it looks fuckin ballzy :)
redstars.bmp- umm duh...red stars!!!
woodsky.bmp- its a picture of the woods that i made into a sky.


Thanks to all the people that made the skys, that I made look better
