I'm a beginer to hammer and I've started a arena map, so far so good except I've run into a water\skybox issue. I learned how to change skybox textures from the default one. When I had the default one the water displayed fine (cept one less important issue, below, which I also need help with) but with the new one the water makes the geometry underneath it invisable so you see the bottom of the skybox and you can't see the water texture. I'm using The textures sky_goldrush_01 and water_2fort. Another issue which I've had since the start is on objects with reflections it shows the purple\black missing texture thing instead of a reflection, this happened when the water was working on the water surface. I haven't manualy put in a light source so if that's the problame just say so and I'll find a tutorial for it. Thanks!
