    Hey Freyja, Nice to see it is still alive after all those years, think I worked on that map since 2014, crazy how time flies. I have to say I really like the turn you've taken on point C, the feeling of progression is way better the way it is right now. Overall I think the map is pretty solid...

    Alright, I'm past most of the tutorials. I've made 5 maps and I want to improve and break the cycle.

    Been a while since I posted something here. First, the most basic thing is to understand the gameplay concepts behind every gamemodes and the game itself, if you don't fully understand how a map works, in terms of flow and guidance, then you have learn these concepts right now, because you...

    Does the map load faster when you optimize it?

    Yup, miswording here ^^, it's preferable to speak about visleaves than visclusters indeed :) even if vvis is merging the leaves into clusters during the compilation. Also note that the amount of calculation is determined by the amount of portals and not by the amount of leaves. VBSP create the...

    Does the map load faster when you optimize it?

    There are two kind of optimization. In-game optimization Compilation time optimization In-game optimization can ruin your compilation time. As Idolon said, using hint brushes will slow down a lot your compilation time simply because you might create more visclusters than vvis would do on it's...

    Should I do a little bit of texturing in alpha?

    From a level designer perspective, the perfect level is a level that plays well without any visual cue whatsoever, the players get attracted to the objective and just look at what they have to look unconsciously. You have to understand that textures/lights/props/overlays and such are small...

    Leak but no cause?

    You're not forced to use a standard size for your displacements, as long as both of the vertices are touching each other and you use the same power you're fine. Use power 2 as a standard, most of the time you will have small displaced brushes and a power of 3 is getting useless under 256 units.

    Oh ok, then put them by experience, for a pl map you want to put ammos where the engineers have to build their stuff, it's really a try and error process, change them when you have to tweak the gameplay. But for a first test, put them in an area where you want to see the players congregate...
