    I've been editing one of my older christmas maps to have a merge of an older christmas map for my servers holiday related map this season... It's giving me a ton of trouble. I fixed a small leak I had with area portals and that didn't fix anything. I tried hiding one displacement at a time, still nothing. Tried hiding pieces with lots of blocks and etcetc..when I test the map in game it jut refuses to show my displacements. I have 3 big detailed mountains that I consider to be the issue, but even when I hide just those and leave other displacements..it doesn't work. I just can not see ANY of the /OUTSIDE/ displacements. The ones inside work fine...can someone help? I've been at this for two days now trying to figure it out but nada. Interlopers isn't helping either, it's just same issues I always get in maps.

    Here's my compile log:

    here's the map if anyone wants to try it for themselves. Note, it takes a long time to open it because I have models that are ERRORS and need to fix them so they arent errors in the map anymore (even with props off displacements don't work) Also, the map isn't done/cleaned up fully. IT WOULD be if displacements would be working!

    all I want for christmas is my map to work

    I func_detailed that area and now my map (which STILL isn't showing outside displacements) is acting like there's a leak. but when I load point file it gets nothing.

    this is what it looks like in one area..

    after func detailing the coordinates it was pointing too, that "leak/coordinate" related problem went away, so..I posted my new compile log above. It's not giving me any abnormal errors in interlopers now. What do I do?

    dude, func_detail does the opposite of sealing the map. A leak goes through every func_detail so instead of func_detailing more things, make them solid brushes again (ctrl+shift+w changes entities into solid brushes). Only solid brushes seal your map

    what do you mean with outside-displacments? are they in a skybox?

    I don't really see what the issue is, the error itself on interlopers said it's either a leak or something that needed to be func detailed, I did that and the error went away, so why is this an issue?

    The displacements indoors work fine. (pillows, beds, etc) The displacements OUTDOORS do not work fine. Aka mountains. Those are the only ones not showing up.

    I did what you said, and guess what, the error comes up again
    "findportalside: couldn't find a good match for which brush to assign to a portal near (72.9 8396.2 179.5)

    Description:
    This error is usually followed by something like this:

    Leaf 0 contents:(may vary)
    Leaf 1 contents: CONTENTS_SOLID (may vary, e.g. CONTENTS_WATER)
    viscontents (node 0 contents ^ node 1 contents): CONTENTS_SOLID (ditto)
    This means that none of the brushes in leaf 0 or 1 that touches the portal
    has CONTENTS_SOLID
    Check for a huge brush enclosing the coordinates above that has contents
    CONTENTS_SOLID
    Candidate brush IDs: [none or more brushnumbers]

    Usually, this error is caused by a leak, so fix it if it is.
    If it isn't, there is a (group of) brush(es) that is/are giving vbsp.exe a hard time to figure out your level.
    Apparently it cannot determine the boundaries of a certain portal. Maybe there is a large brush covering the area, maybe the area is just to complicated for poor vbsp to figure out.

    I don't know the details but usually turning entities to world brushes or vice-versa helps to fight the problem. Hell, just cutting a brush in two once helped me fight this problem.

    Solution:
    Find the given coordinates (or if a brush number is given search for the brush number) and see what you can do to to simplify the area (like turning brushes to func_detail). You should also check to see if the brushes are overlapping at any point." So removing the func detail on them causes the error to come back.

    Then how about you load the pointfile and check which brush can be func_detailed and which not?

    There is no point file. I always check that anyways.. I'm assuming that when it opens up like "idle_cy4g_wintercastle_b9.lin" and says not found, there isn't a point file aka not a leak. I've tried hiding the area too and that doesn't work. So I really am at a loss here. You can download the map, I provided the link above, and see for yourself. I've tried looking for leaks. I've tried a lot.

    If there is no point file it means that your map is sealed properly and there is no leak, but inside of the map there still lies an issue where it cant make the leafs or wall faces.

    For example a misplaced area portal could do this. Many times it still draws a line (areaportal leak) but there are also cases where it doesnt (invalid areaportal). A hintbrush touching a face (at the same angle as the face) that gets clipped away for example is also a reason on why you can get a leak without pointfile.

    Also, the error i see is:
    Bad surface extents point: -1322.812500 -4599.000000 2151.000000
    Bad surface extents point: -3150.050781 -2016.441406 2151.000000
    Bad surface extents point: -2375.242188 -1925.972656 2151.000000
    Bad surface extents point: -547.997070 -4508.540039 2151.000000
    Bad surface extents - surface is too big to have a lightmap
    material NATURE/SNOWFLOOR002A around point (-1849.0 -3262.5 2151.0)
    (dimension: 1, 129>126)

    I suspect this brush to be the displacement, and that its 1 huge one aswel.

    Maybe the displacement itself is too large and you have to split it up into smaller sections. Or your displacement has an error where 2 of the edges clipped into each other (effectively removing a face of the displacement). The coordinates can at least give you the position of the brush giving problems. Im guessing that this is your outside mountain.

    EDIT: and i noticed i just missed on other part. Did you set the lightmap scale to 1 on that mountain? As that very likely can be the cause of the problem. Normaly you can just keep them on 16 as in most cases it will look good enough. Setting them to 1 just wastes alot of HDD space for no good reason.

    Further, since the log of vbsp stopped there and didnt mention it finished vbsp crashed. Before doing a normal compile of the map do one with nonly vbsp on normal. Saves the time for vvis and vrad as in this case they are just compiling an old state again. Its a waste of time. When you see that vbsp finishes the normal way you can turn those 2 on again. That means your vbsp should end with something like:

    I can NOT thank you enough. Hiding the displacements those coordinates pointed too, fixed it. I think they were just a face in another face and etc. I don't know how to explain it but I'm just so happy right now because are so excited for this map on my servers. Thank you so much for fixing it!!

    Or you could set the advanced compile settings to check for the existence of the bsp file after completion. I think that VBSP removes the old one at an early stage.

    From my experience it doesnt do that, its something you have to manualy add. Maybe if vbsp just failed and finished it could remove the bsp. But it crashed in his case and in that case it doesnt remove it.
