env_sun flickering

Not sure what else there is to say. The env_sun entity flickers when I move or look around. It’s giving me a headache and I can’t think of a good replacement for it. Is there a way to fix it/replace it?

Try deleting it and making a new one.

It normally flickers if you stare directly at it, it’s a bug in source that you can’t really do anything about.

If it’s flickering just all the time, try using different sizes/materials for the entity and make sure the material is a proper sprite texture

Are you using a $decal in the sun’s material?

I’m using entirely default effects, including size. It only flickers when I move, or move the camera-- otherwise it’s fine.

Sounds like it’s an engine bug though…lame. Maybe I should paint a sun on my skybox and try that…

Try using the default sun sprite. From what you’re saying, it looks like Z-fighting.

I think I am, but just as a sanity check-- what are the names for the default sun sprites?
