    Alright, this has been driving me nuts long enough. The compile log claims that there is a leak. So I decided to load the pointfile and guess what, it gives me a nice red line outside of my map. At no point does it touch any part of my map. Any suggestions?

    Check the origins. You probably moved one outside the map. The line allways is taken from the origin

    In simple-language:

    Brush entities (like func_door) have an origin which you can set to any location, its probably that you have one of these outside of the world and is leaking.

    Turn on helpers :helpers: and then select all your rush entities, you'll probably now see a blue sphere where the pointfile starts, you'll need to find which entity this one belongs to and move it back inside the entity. (there is one of the menu options to centre all origins but depending on your entities you might not want all of them centred)

    That was it! One of the doors had an origin outside the map. Thanks!
