    im using a standard skybox (sky_trainyard_01) and used the recommended setting off of the Valve skylist. and i get this error.
    *** Error: Skybox vtf files for skybox/sky_trainyard_01 weren't compiled with the same size texture and/or same flags!
    Can't load skybox file skybox/sky_trainyard_01 to build the default cubemap!
    Can someone help?

    If nothing odd is happening in your map once it's compiled, you should be able to safely ignore this error.

    You can ignore this error. It's purely a visual thing, it won't have any negative effect on your map, and you'll be building your own cubemaps manually later so it doesn't even matter.

    The error is a sanity check that no longer makes sense. If anything, it's a bug that it still shows up. But the message of you having to build cubemaps manually isn't as much a workaround as how cubemaps work.
