Links the various potential skyboxes that can be used to a numerical ID that can be used in other DBC files more easily.

6.0.1.18179

struct LightSkyboxRec {
  uint32_t m_ID;
  stringref m_name;
  uint32_t m_flags;    // &1: animation syncs with time of day (uses animation 0, time of day is just in percentage). &2: render stars, sun and moons and clouds as well. &4: see below
};

Flag 0x4

This flag takes halved version sky cone mesh to make a smooth transition between bottom EndFogColor and the main sky.

It's not mutually exclusive with 0x2 flag, which tells to draw full version of sky cone mesh. And some skyboxes do use both flags at the same time (Check from example map 971). In this case, first main sky cone mesh is drawn, then the sky box meshes are drawn if there are any, and on top of the result the halved sky cone mesh is drawn to smooth out the result
