1. Leave the terrain flat.
2. Go underground.
3. Set the Sky Size to 16384 (4x the norm)
4. Click Render. Enjoy.
They just issued a tornado warning and said to stay away from windows. Does that mean I can't use my computer?

too bad to post it in the TG2 Documentation

It doesn't actually work in TG 0.9 either.
Figured out how to do clicky signatures

Actually it does. Simply move the camera 20 meters underground. Or, deselect "land" so only the sky is rendered. For more realism, use some 3D clouds and change the atmosphere colors.

An example .tgw file would be helpful because I'm with the majority here, it's not that simple and it doesn't work as described in the original post.

however with a bit of tinkering you can do interesting stuff in TG 0.9x by 'going underground'.  Here's one I made earlier:

Make sure Backface Culling is enabled and add clouds. Make sure the Sky Size is 16384 or larger.
