    Greetings,

    Ive put water onto my map. Ok? sounds simple right, so I did what VDC said by having nodraw on all sides but the top and I get missing textures when I enter the water. How do I fix this?

    But it's fine from outside the water? If it's custom water (doesn't ship with stock TF2) it's probably missing its bottom material. If it's a stock material more than likely some files became corrupt. Validate the TF2 files via Steam with all TF2 related stuff closed, then try again.

    If the water is invisible in its entirety either VVIS was deliberately not run (water needs VVIS to work) or you have a leak.

    that did find a missing file but didnt fix the issue im having. So this is stock water from tf2 and I walk into the water in game (with cubemaps) and when your fully submerged theres a missing texture all over your screen.

    Are you using a texture with "_beneath" in its name? Don't use them at all, they are just being used by actual water materials but show up in the texture browser anyway

    Only use TF2 water. You will know when it has a map in it's name.
