    I'm getting an odd error that doesn't seem to be harming my map in any visible way, but it would be a good idea to get rid of. Its caused by a complex func_detail'ed brush. Do I have to remake the brush to fix this error, or would I just be alright leaving it as is?

    Heres the error

    -1.320800 -0.812800 0.000000
    -1.320800 0.812800 0.000000

    Pictures maybe? Usually that error is caused by a bad displacement or some custom content. If you're certain you know it's the brushwork that is causing the problem, try pasting it in a new .vmf and closing it in with a skybox just to make sure. If that compiles fine then check elsewhere for the problem. Unfortunately if it is the problem, you may have to rebuild whatever you've got.

    If you have a displacement that is a triangle, I think it causes that error

    Also, if you func_detailed a displacement, it can cuase that error.
