    Anything I should know about the filesize of my map. It's not that big of a map to take like 17Mb. They can't even donwload the map through steam, because it has some kind of limit, 16Mb I guess. So how do I smaller it?:huh:

    You need to increase the lightmap scale of faces that are evenly lit.
    This can reduce filesize ALOT.

    Surely if they can't download a 17mb file the problem lies elsewhere, 17mb is tiny for a map and shouldnt cause any problems.
    where are they downloading it from? There might be some server setting that sets the download cap stupidly low
