if anyone wants to know how to fix this, i have....

1.used quakelivedec to open pak00.pk3
2.found the relevent shader file in /scripts/ which is in this case (i have many of these issues) skies.shader
3. i have copied the relevent text, starting with textures/skies/overkill and copied it to a new file, saved it as a .shader and placed in wolfcam/scripts

this overwrites some ****ed up pak later in baseq3, i think. KI mentioned baseq3 being read alphabetically so this makes sense...problem is i don't know which pakXX.pk3 it is, or perhaps i'm even missing one. I will make love to the person who makes a list of every baseq3/.pk3 they have! GOGOGO! <3
