Making the staticMesh sky the right size.  Double click on the sky mesh and choose Display.

Inside your map.  Hold Ctrl on your keyboard to select more than 1 surface.  Then release Ctrl and right click.

Doesn't matter if the sky parts of your map are many different shapes and angles.  They will all blend and show the sky.

to raise and lower the SkyZoneInfo (or instead the mesh skybox if you prefer): select it in the 3d map viewer, hold Ctrl and both mouse buttons. Then moving your mouse up and down will raise and lower.

Inside the skybox you can place all sorts of stuff.  Have a look thru UT's map skyboxes.  Many are really cool with additions of static mesh props.

Thx imgur - they make it real easy to post and organize the pics!!
