    When I compile, I am getting this error. I am trying to use the lumberyard 2d skybox. The skybox looks fine in-game, but it is still giving me this error

    *** Error: Skybox vtf files for skybox/sky_trainyard_01 weren't compiled with the same size texture and/or same flags!
    Can't load skybox file skybox/sky_trainyard_01 to build the default cubemap!
    *** Error: Skybox vtf files for skybox/sky_trainyard_01 weren't compiled with the same size texture and/or same flags!
    Can't load skybox file skybox/sky_trainyard_01 to build the default cubemap!

    I went to interlopers and it said that the skybox name was typed in wrong. I know that can't be it because I copied the name exactly off the wiki

    does anyone know how to fix this?

    donĀ“t bother with that error, everyone using this skybox gets it. it is displayed correctly ingame, thats all that counts. just build your cubemaps manually.

    That comes up on every skybox but one I believe, and basically cubemaps are not built into the skybox automatically, which means you'll get purple checker boxes on most reflective or transparent materials like water and glass. So, if you have those sorts of things in your map you'll want to rebuild your cubemaps manually if you hope to keep that skybox. This might be helpful to getting you there:

    So, if you're in the early stages of mapping I'd ignore that error for now, cause you have to rebuild cubemaps every time you rename the map - don't worry it isn't your fault! :)
