After you open SkyPaint program (links on the end of this topic), you have the option to modify the preferences or if you want the default sky or just save the default scene as tga and pcx (more about Quake Army Knife editor usage later).
When you install SkyPaint, .8bf files will be in your folder. In the plugin path put their path, in Paint Program, i put Paint Shop Pro 7 path.
Now, when you make a image in Paint Shop Pro 7 and click Effects, you will see Plug-in Filters-SkyPaint.
Save you image. It will save in multiple images (TGA and pcx) with abbreviations for up, down etc.
Now you can use your Quake Army Knife editor and a program that opens a .pak file (a archive type file with folders inside that have sounds, maps etc.) I used PakScape.
In the game, the sky will show, but the room you are in will be black, if you don't put some light in it
Yes, the pointy thing is the knife :)

Is used to import/export/delete files, folders from the opened pak file, which is some sort of a archive. You can rename the .pak file to .rar and vice versa but it cannot always work. Quake Army Knife can open pak files, import files, but cannot make folders easily.
