    -remove collision
    20211119001649_1.jpg
    -lightmap lighting could make this vent look better
    20211119001852_1.jpg
    -black squares
    20211119001621_1.jpg
    -black pipe
    20211119002532_1.jpg
    -wrong cubemap
    20211119002319_1.jpg
    -I think these oil cans don't have collision in the normal version of the map. With collision they are kinda jank
    20211119001933_1.jpg
    -weird white line on these displacements
    20211119001344_1.jpg
    -wrong cubemap
    20211119002341_1.jpg
    -generating lightmaps for the barrels will help with the odd shadows
    20211119001520_1.jpg
    -water depth here causes the weird thing where you can't fully crouch but instead constantly switch between crouching and standing when holding the crouch button
    20211119002636_1.jpg
    -disable collision on the outlet
    20211119002924_1.jpg
    -can see these floating trees when explosive jumping
    20211119002253_1.jpg
    -could use a nice blend between the ice and the dirt
    20211119002705_1.jpg
    -this other outlet shouldn't have collision either
    20211119001655_1.jpg
    -pipe clipping through wall
    20211119001707_1.jpg
    -this junk could use some clipping
    20211119002354_1.jpg
    -I wish the bottles in this map where physics objects :/
    20211119003017_1.jpg
    -I don't remember why I took this screenshot
    20211119002608_1.jpg
    -Did you compile with respawnroom visualizers? They don't seem to show up
    20211119002314_1.jpg
    -lighting here makes the green present very bright
    20211119002735_1.jpg
    -this room could use some clipping
    20211119002156_1.jpg
    -remove collision
    20211119001417_1.jpg
    -these stockings don't really touch the wall and don't look like they are hanging on anything. Maybe stick a nail prop through em or something
    20211119001918_1.jpg
    -fence pole floating here
    20211119001453_1.jpg
    -how did that box even get in that room?
    20211119002651_1.jpg
    -the train doesn't have a smokestack and yet produces it o_O
    20211119001511_1.jpg
    -could be neat if the ice was slippery
    20211119002402_1.jpg
    -black squares
    20211119001754_1.jpg
    -you can sorta surf on the collision behind the tree to stay back there. It's odd.
    20211119001553_1.jpg
    -sometimes snows in this room
    20211119003153_1.jpg
    black square
    20211119002940_1.jpg
    -This is not how snow works
    20211119001822_1.jpg
    -clip yo stairs

    20211119002346_1.jpg
    -black square
    20211119003237_1.jpg
    -visible nodraw while explosive jumping
    20211119003141_1.jpg
    -could use a nice blend or something between the snow and wood. Also having the snowy grass go over the wood doesn't make sense as grass wouldn't grow on the wood.
    20211119001639_1.jpg
    -black pipe
    20211119001806_1.jpg
    -the train is cute but it does clip into the tracks
    20211119001614_1.jpg
    -the wood snow overlay on this tower doesn't line up with each side
    20211119003244_1.jpg
    -grassy/mossy wood doesn't make sense here
    20211119003034_1.jpg
    -bottom of the truck is rather dark, a bit too dark
    20211119002506_1.jpg
    -I greatly dislike the chunky snow blocks on the rooves. It looks bad and is not really how snow works.
    20211119002031_1.jpg
    -is there clipping for the sidewalk things on the bridge? Doesn't feel like it.
    20211119002216_1.jpg
    -can't read that sign with how bright the light is
    20211119002045_1.jpg
    -why is this the grassy snow? It doesn't look right. Also the displacement part in the truck is very angular 20211119002512_1.jpg
    -the cable here goes into the wall due to the wind
    20211119001733_1.jpg
    -wrong cubemap
    20211119002823_1.jpg
    -the face here is oddly dark
    20211119002146_1.jpg
    -the lighting here makes the green giftbox very bright, also how did it even get in there?
    20211119002022_1.jpg
    -light bleed under the walls of these shacks
    20211119002447_1.jpg
    -misaligned texture from the top roof to the front maybe?

    And that's all the nitpicking for now. Hope it helps :D

    Cleaned up a bunch of little tweaks (thanks megapieman) and made some minor adjustments to stuff and things.

    Tweaked the fog triggers to hopefully make it harder to cheese.

    Dramatically improved visleaf cuts, cutting compile time by almost 2/3rds of how long it took before on a full compile (!)

    Improved clipping in a number of places

    Theoretically fixed the black brush faces, I dunno yet, I haven't looked.

    More feedback is always welcome, feel free to pick them nits.

    Hey there! Lovely map so far. Always wanted to see Doublecross at a time other than night, and this map scratches that itch nicely.

    The only thing I've noticed possibly wrong so far is shown in the image below. Is there supposed to be this black rectangle on this wall here in Blue's base near their spawn? I don't know, just seems kind of our of place. Other than that, I can't seem to notice anything else wrong so far! Lovely work!

    I've been fighting these a fair amount, I think I got most of them but looks like I missed one! Thanks for the heads up.

    For future reference to anyone who might be interested: it seems to be happening more often on brushes that are 45*, and simply deleting and undoing the delete resets the brush and seems to fix it!
