    I did a compile recently, and I noticed the next time I loaded up hammer editor all my entities disappeared.

    HOLY SHIT.

    I am incredibly thankful for autosaves right now, but what's wrong with my map that's causing this to happen?

    EDIT: Whatever it was, it's fixed now.

    welcome to source son, I bet you just loaded your map with an invalid solid in it. that has the side effect of wiping out your entities. when that happens, don't save over the file, we have the science to fix it
