I've been making maps for a while, everything was working fine until I recently keep getting this error when I try to play the map on a server, it says something like HL error. the skylight texture is too big.

Please can someone help me?

Could you please post the compile log?
...and that's the bottom line because Mate de Vita said so.

Erm... That's your compile log? It's awfully short...

In the folder where you have the zhlt compile tools there should be a file called mapname.log (where mapname is your map's name). Could you please open it and copy its whole content here?
...and that's the bottom line because Mate de Vita said so.

This may be harmless, and if no strange side effects are occurring, then
it can safely be ignored. However, if your map starts exhibiting strange
or obscure errors, consider this as suspect.

Holy god, it's gigantic! You're using way more than 8 wadfiles. This may be harmless, and if no strange side effects are occurring, then it can safely be ignored. However, if your map starts exhibiting strange or obscure errors, consider this as suspect.
As it says here:

This may be harmless, and if no strange side effects are occurring, then
it can safely be ignored. However, if your map starts exhibiting strange
or obscure errors, consider this as suspect.

So remove all the wads you're not using, then export to map again and recompile.
...and that's the bottom line because Mate de Vita said so.
