    I used the interlopers compiler log checker and it said
    "can't load skybox file skybox/sky_tf2_04 to build the default cubemap!" and
    "make_triangles:calc_triangle_representation: cannot convert"
    I tried the solutions they gave on the site only non of them helped. 20160808105740_1.jpg

    It looks like a leak to me, but what do I know.

    Have you tried loading the pointfile?

    Take your compile log, put it in here: http://www.interlopers.net/errors?page=errors .

    Tell what it says, because this most definitely looks like a leak (or missing materials, which I doubt).

    Wait, this is the stock TF2 skybox? You might have missing/corrupted game files. To fix this, close all applications using TF2 content (Hammer, CompilePal, GCFScape, etc), then go to Steam->right-click Team Fortress 2 in the game library on the left->Properties->Local Files->Verify integrity of game cache. This will replace any missing or corrupt files.

    As I said at the top I used it and it said "can't load skybox file skybox/sky_tf2_04 to build the default cubemap!" and
    "make_triangles:calc_triangle_representation: cannot convert". I still don't know what they are.

    That's why you load your compile log into that website, it tells you what those errors are.

    But since this is a stock TF2 skybox we're talking about, I suggest you first check the game's local files on anything broken/missing, which I also put in the post.

    No need for it if it can be solved without any vmf (which this most definitely can). No need to rush things.

    You can also upload .vmf to dropbox and then post the link here so we can check.

    By the way, those two errors you gave can be ignored. The can't load skybox error is spat out every single time, the other one never gave anyone issues here (looking from older threads with the same issue).
