I am trying to have less ctds so I am collaging everything in my base folder into 1 .pk3
when I went to play the map it was a gray box everywhere the skyboxes make the map so much more how can I get them back
i looked in the pk3 textures and i see the maps skyboxes so I didn't download a wrong file
could this have something to do with my video settings there on medium-high?
I don't know the solution, but remember that skies are shaders not textures.
It may be the fact that you moved them, but if they retained the same folder structure, it should work, and no, its definitely not because of your video settings.
