    I think it only happens to a few peeps, but it is not good!

    Anyone seen this before, and have an idea to cure it?

    Thanks in advance

    thats...amazing...

    no idea how to help you though, a different sky texture? bigger skybox? Does the skybox have an entity tied to it? All I can really think of.

    poor rock wall, sky don't likey :facepalm

    More informations though, what sky tex are you using, what sky is in your map description...

    Are those people using a certan vid card, driver?
    Although I'd assume theyd have probs with all maps, not just yours, so it's probably in the map.

    'starrynight' is the name in the map properties and I am using Starry Night.......

    This is only a couple of peeps I think - and I think this may be the only map they have that uses this sky......the majority have not had a problem....

    try

    sky_night_01

    That's the tf2 sky. If yours isn't custom it must be halflife (2) in which case only people with half life would be able to see it. I got Orange box so I would see it, if someone only bought TF2 they wouldn't.

    Gonna use the tf2 sky as a stop gap until Void comes up with the goods !! :laugh:

    And I think you you may be right - it could be a HL2 thing.....but, saying that, the sky was pakratted in the BSP, so it should work, no??

    Thanks for yer help...

    Well, I have to say, to my shame that I don't have HL2 so I could run around and tell you if I get that sky.

    EDIT: after running around, I didn't get that problem with the sky so I don't think it's a HL2 thing.

    This can be due to low settings. Check your vtf file, try redo it using different program.

    Even if it was a HL2 sky, couldn't he just extract it and then pack it in with pakrat that way they would be able to download it with the map and be able to see it that way?

    I've seen something like this before, it seems to arise from improper vtf/vmt settings.
