    ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    The co'ords given take me to the void when entered, and I have completely boxed in the map using the skybox. No leaks. Been working on this problem for hours now >.>
    Any suggestions?
    (first map btw)

    Here's what our compile log checker overlords say from interlopers/net/errors:

    "Description:
    vbsp is having a hard time figuring out your level, it seems to have found a part of your level that is infinite in size. This is, offcourse, invalid

    Solution:
    Look near the coordinates given. It is likely that you either need to func_detail a lot of brushes in that area, or that you have an invalid brush somewhere (Alt-p in hammer to check for them). It may be pretty difficult to hunt down the exact problem though."

    So some brushes near those coordinates are either enormous or really complex causing VBSP to throw its hands up screaming "I DON'T KNOW ANYMORE". See what the Hammer error checker says, bring it up with Alt+P.

    Done this all already, got no errors except for the standard 'no player start'. There is another for bad I/O for the control point, but it doesn't help even if I delete it.
    Thanks for the quick response anyhow.

    have you gone to the coordinates and look for invalid looking brushes? Are there many tiny brushes close together? or is there a giantic brush larger than 4000 units on one axis?
     
    • Thanks Thanks x 1

    Each coordinate directs me to some part of the void, I haven't been able to find anything in the area.
    There are brushes over 4000 units, yes. But they're the skyboxes. I'll try trimming these into multiple brushes.

    Edit: It worked! Thank you!
