    I'm sure the pool of people who are trying to use this skybox is very small. I myself am doing a night-centric map, but I'm making my own skybox.

    tested it tonight, works fine for me
    have you ever used a custom skybox before sucessfully? or is this your first time?
    check your log for any errors?
    did you put it in the right place?
    did you tell your map properties the right name for the skybox to use?
    do you know how to make a proper skybox in hammer and what to texture it with?

    more info please

    1) make sure you are putting the correct 'texture' on your skybox in hammer, which is Tools/Toosskybox

    2) make sure you are NOT putting the starrynight texture on your skybox

    3) make sure you are placing the starrynight files in the following 2 places
    - team fortress 2\tf\materials\skybox
    - sourcesdk_content\tf\materialsrc\skybox

    If all that fails provide a screenshot and check your log for any errors (you might have a leak or other problems)

    let us know
