    Hello, I've been working on making a new koth map, and I added a texture thats a reskin of just water, to look like lava. (http://forums.tf2maps.net/downloads.php?do=file&id=4342) When I added it in, it worked fine, but when I compiled the map, and opened it ingame, it isn't working. This is a screen shot of it in game; http://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=100159329. It works correcty, but only when your near it (about 40 or so hammer units) otherwise, its a weird cross stream color of pixels.

    The compiler logged: " error: material tachyon/lava001 doesn't have a $bottommaterial ", So I'm guessing this means that something is wrong with the texture. I redownloaded it, and re-installed it, and I got the same error. I have checked for leaks, and there are none.

    I've seen it on other tf2 maps on this site, and the've gotten it from here, so I know it was working at somepoint, or maybe something is wrong with my computer. If the download link is not working, can someone re-upload, or direct me to another person who has a similar lava texture. Thanks for your time.
