I don't see any leaks in my skybox, and how can I make my 3d skybox look better?

13749 This is your 3D sky. Don't tell me it's not leaking, also by making better 3d sky I suggest only experience.

How bout instead of criticizing him you actually help him lol.

Anyways, you can watch several videos on YouTube that do an excellent job of showing you how to create a 3D skybox. You clearly have a leak based upon Darnias' other post that shows the red line leaking out of your map. Your map will fail if there is a leak in the skybox. You have to follow that line in Hammer and see which wall it leads to. Make sure all points are closed off completely otherwise a leak will occur. Trust me you have a leak here and I have run into several occasions where I have thought I have sealed everything off perfectly only to find out I was off slightly and it caused the entire compilation to fail.

Its leaky. Check the top.

Either way, for stuff like that, your better off making a box hollow, instead of individually placing brushes :D

The best way to learn how to map is not to just post the .vmf and get someone else to fix it for you. Because then you learn nothing and dont know what to do next time it happens. From my experience of mapping there are answers to 90% of source sdk errors and issues out there, just punch somethings into google about the issue you are getting and take it from there.
