    Hydro Gallery - An edited Hydro VMF

    This is an edited version of the Hydro VMF I call Hydro Gallery
    Basically, I have removed every single invis, playerclip, hint, occluder, trigger and skip brush I can find, so you can see everything without huge coloured blocks filling your vision!
    This helps hugely for me, as I can see what looks nice and what works together.
    **NOTE**
    I have left every single brush there, any missing was probably an accident, but haven't found any gone yet. All lights, cube maps and logic bits are left as well, so if you want to see those, you can.

    Hope this helps!

    So this version seems to be better suited for SFM's and the sort, right?

    So that's what I get when I turn the tool brushes auto visgroup off?
    Edit: Thanks Iiboharz for explaining another advantage - faster Hammer loading times!

    No, seems they made it just to look at for reference. Which makes sense cuz Hydro's vmf takes a while to load because of how large it is.

    Nope. This one isn't compiled, it's for use in hammer, and seeing how everything works together without a thick cloud of render brushes and sorts obscuring it.
    If I tried to render it, it would likely take days, and I'd also need to add the skybox back in
