    I've nearly finished this arena map I made, and the only thing I have to do now is to fix the water, which is purple & black.

    So, what are possible reasons for purple & black water, and how would I go about fixing it?

    if you are using a custom water texture, you are missing the .vtf file.

    Or, if it has purple and clearish checkerboard marks, then you need to build cubemaps.

    It is not a custom texture, and I have built cubemaps. In case it matters, or I'm doing it wrong, the water is in the skybox.

    make sure you turn speculars off before you buildcubemaps.

    buildcubemaps
