    They go in c:/program files (x86)/steam/steamapps/common/tf/materials/skybox/insert skybox vtfs and vmts here.

    If tf/materials/skybox doesn't exist on your drive, create it.

    Note that for many things its better to go for the custom folder, as it will allow you to put all the content for your map into just 1 folder. Skybox textures for example do work when put there.
    The path by that becomes
    c:/program files (x86)/steam/steamapps/common/tf/custom/randomname/materials/skybox/
    where for randomname you can put any name, its simply to keep the files apart in case you would use 3 diffirent mods for for example the hud. I would recommend giving it the name of the map.

    I refrain from using the custom folder as VIDE for whatever reason doesn't scan it properly even if you tell it to do so.
