Np. The sky you refer to is known as the backdrop. There are several commands related to coloring and texturing the backdrop. You can also scroll the backdrop. To change the color of the backdrop use this code. This will change it to magenta

backdrop on
color backdrop rgb(255,0,255)

For any type of 3d Sky I suggest using a skysphere or a skybox.

Sorta off topic but the other day I was playing CS and I noticed de_dust uses a skybox I saw the seam

I agree. backdrops are adequate for beginners however if you want to attain a higher level of shine and quality in your game i suggest like rpggamer that you use a 3d sky
backdrops are static depending on which way the camera is facing. You will soon notice the limit of backdrop textures.

I thought all the half life/cs maps used skyboxes, to close the bsp level. They're just coded so you don't notice. In spectator mode there's no clipping, so you might be able to move out of the skybox.
