    So, I have been making my first Hammer Editor map to TF2 for quite awhile. I just started to fix my leaks couple of days ago. I thought I had all of them fixed, but then something happened. I decided to make my skyboxarea as small as I possibly could. I did it, but now my map has a (dunno if theres more) leak thats is pretty weird for me. As I said, this is my first map (not counting the tutorial map) so Im pretty noob at mapping.

    It looks like the pointfile goes in the middle of that prop_static (2. pic), and I have NO IDEA how thats a leak. The other end of the line end in the void. Could someone more experienced mapper help me?

    "This must be a leak, what else could this be?"

    Seriously, just check for holes and don't put any entity's outside the map.

    That prop's origin is waaaaaaay off to one side (that little circle thing that makes your cursor turn into a plus sign when you mouse over it) That might be what's causing it. Move the origin back to the middle of the prop and it should be fine.

    ETA: Or maybe not, kind of hard to tell from those screenshots.

    That's a Half-Life 2 prop anyway, so get rid of it and that solves both your problems.

    You can't really move the origin of a model.

    Also, any entity will leak, not just... whatever you think leaks? So all point entities, props included, brush entities, whatever, all of it.

    On the right there is a thing that says "visgroups". On the Auto tab, uncheck func_detail, entities, and displacements, then find the hole. The red line goes through the hole. It might be a really tiny hole, but there is always a hole. If you find holes annoying, map on the 16 or 32 unit grid.

    Your floor isn't on the grid at the level of the hl2 prop, raise it.
