    I have to say i just started creating maps today and of course i ran into a problem.
    i have created a simple box with a spawn point inside.
    when i try to run the map the compiler opens tf2 but then closes it.
    i tought that running the map without opening tf2 would erase the problem but I don't know how to load a map in tf2 outside of hammer.
    Then I tried to analyize the compile log with interlopers.net, but it says :

    You have entered a skybox texture which doesn't seem to be valid. Make sure you don't specify the last three letter (_UP, _DN, etc) of any skybox texture you use. You may also need to fix your vmt files if they are broken. It may also be caused by compiling a non-HDR skybox texture.

    don't know what to do

    i have changed all textures of the box to dev/grey (wich should be considred a material)

    it still gives me this error.

    i know this probably isn't a complicated issue but i can't figure out anything.

    this is the compile log .

    in the console, type 'map <mapname'. For you it'd be 'map box'
    you can ignore that error you posted, it's harmless
