    *** Error: Skybox vtf files for sky_alpinestorm_01 weren't compiled with the same size texture and/or same flags!
    Can't load skybox file sky_alpinestorm_01 to build the default cubemap!

    ------------------------------------------------------

    can someone explain what is wrong with the skybox?

    (just to clarify) I have the sky box around the edges of the map to show the alpine storm sky. I have not yet made the 3d background elements with sky_camera.

    he´s saying that you get this "error" using every skybox, so you can ignore it since it will work despite the error message

    damn, ninja´d by cameron
