    I've just gotten into Mapmaking thanks to Crash's tutorials, and so far, when I'm moving the screen around, the props will turn into a colored box. This is especially frustrating when I'm using Boojum Snark's TF2 Resource Pack, as everything will appear to be a yellow or pink box.

    I doubt it's a compiling log issue, as it appears as boxes when I'm building the maps.

    "How do I fix this?" is essentially what I'm asking, as I've just starting this less than a day ago.

    Sounds like you need to increase your model render distance.

    What you're going to want to do is open Hammer and go to Tools>Options>3D Views and increase the Model render distance slider, as you can see here.


    You might need to close and restart Hammer after this, but maybe not.

    EDIT: I just checked, you don't need to restart. It updates in real time.
