I need a sky mesh for players to find each otherís flags. A common complaint from CTF players is that they do not know the location of the other flag. I have seen on other CTF maps, sky meshes used to facilitate the route and location of the flags. I am not familiar with all the different sky meshes that are available. I am using TMapper

you mean something like a big arrow in the sky with a 'this way to team xxx's flag'?

You can put a big floating sign in the sky...

no...you people are not helping...I guess I could put all the meshes in a map to see what they are...or I thought I would just ask. To see what others have used. Just a thought.

you can use any mesh. you would just have to change the height from the terrain. Or use 3d browser to view the models. sorry, no link to 3d browser

I use 3D Browser religiously to see all meshes. Just make sure they are triangulated or the game won't be able to use it. In 3D Browser, you can toggle on/off the mesh lines. Another trick I use is to find out if the mesh is big enough is to import another mesh that I know the size of (like the Dwarf Tank...Tank 25)into a modeling program like MilkShape3D or UnWrap3D. If yer too cheap to get these tools, then I guess you can always use some of the other free modeling tools out there.

If it's too small then use the scale command to size it up. If you need any help with any of that, let me know.
