    unknown light specifier type - lights
    [56 texlights parsed from 'lights.rad']

    Despite having both a light_environment and light entities in my map, the map will load with fullbright. It was working for a while and stopped at some point without me noticing. I have narrowed it down to the above text being the issue, which comes up when compiling. It occurs with any .vmf I try loading up in TF2 that I have previously compiled using Hammer. Does anyone know how to fix this error?

    There are no leaks.

    For some reason, mat_fullbright stays on between map loads, which may be causing your issue. Set mat_fullbright to 0 in console (requires cheats) or restart the game and it should go away.

    Thanks for the suggestion, I tried it but I'm afraid it didn't work. I've flicked mat_fullbright on and off, restarted my game between toggles, restarted my computer and restarted hammer. The issue only occurs when loading maps that I've compiled in hammer, I've tried loading both custom maps downloaded from gamebanana and some official in-game maps like probed and badlands through the console, and the fullbright disappears on these maps. It returns when loading a hammer-compiled map.

    You probably went over an error in the compile log's entirety then, post it here or try checking it via http://www.interlopers.net/errors/

    This is what the error finder has to say:

    can't load skybox file skybox/sky_alpinestorm_01 to build the default cubemap!
    Description:
    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.

    However I find this unlikely as 1) when I load the map the skybox is there and 2) I'm using the default sawmill skybox settings.

    This error can be ignored, it's a bug with TF2 that will appear no matter what. It's just telling you that VBSP can't build the default cubemaps (it usually uses the skybox for this), but if you build cubemaps manually this isn't a problem.

    Are you compiling with HDR while your game is set to LDR?

    Well, I'm not entirely sure what LDR is, but I haven't been compiling with HDR just yet, so I doubt that's it

    HDR is high dynamic range, a rendering technique that allows for a higher range of brightness to be rendered for a better-looking scene. LDR is low dynamic range, or basically just normal lighting. If you compile a map with HDR lighting and not LDR, users who have HDR disabled will see your map as fullbright.
