The error should be fixed now. (Same thing happened to my gun mettle pack before I updated it, so something's fishy.)"7-Zip cannot open this file as an archived folder" I think dl is broken or my PC is.
Ok, many thanks!You just have to extract all the files from the game and edit the values.
The files are in tf/tf2_misc_dir.vpk so you will need GCFScape to open it. Once you have that opened, navigate to materials/water and find the water files that are closest to what you want to create. In my case it's water_well, water_well_beneath, water_well_dx80 and water_well_beneath_dx80. Copy these to tf/materials/water and rename them. In my case I replaced "well" with "powerup". Open the files in notepad and make sure to edit the name sof the other files that are being mentioned. Now change values like "$fogcolor" to whatever color you want. The color format is a simple RGB going from 0 to 255.
If you can't get it to work, ask somebody for help. Water materials can get a little confusing to work with.
I have a odd bug where the top of the material wont show up in game (leading to invisible water unless you are inside it)
Thank you for the assistance, the map is in its early stage and i was wondering why it was happening, the skybox is quite large, could also be causing it?Oh, that's usually caused by leaks, portal errors, or many other things because Hammer is crap. Try looking for leaks, or placing a hint brush the size of the water directly above the water.
