    I'm using one of the soho/koth_king wall textures and it has this weird checkerboard overlayed on top of it, but the checkerboard doesn't show up in hammer. Like this:

    Any fix?

    What's the name of the texture? If it's missing a normal or detail map, then you have to use a different one or fix this one in a custom material.

    Did you build your cubemaps? Usually when you get checkerboard patterns it means you're lacking cubemap textures, cubemap entity, or something as simple as forgot to compile your cubemaps in-game.

    Those aren't missing cube maps. That's a much different look.
    This is likely missing normal map textures.

    What henke37 said, the same goes for some of the badlands style ground textures. Only way to fix it would be a different texture or make a custom vmf.

    does the checker artifacting remain when using a different texture?
