Hello there!
I'm going to go straight to the point...
So first off we have the leak...
as you can see here

The leak is just coming out of nowhere... which is probably why the water is all missed up.
I have also locked the map from every other place, and to make sure that i did that right, i surrounded the map with a few walls from all 6 sides (the ones that are blue)
However it says there is a leak.

Next up, the water...
i have tried sooooooooooo many times to fix the water and make it look normal, however it's either just black like this

OR has this REALLY annoying thing where if it touches any wall or any other thing, that area turns black.

so.... yeah... help me please

Here's the vmf

If i can just fix this water issue, the map will be done.

Dont box your map. There is probably an entity origin outside of the map. Enable :helpers:, select everything, and then move the origin back into the map.

Yup, downloaded it, it's a func_door with it's origin outside the map according to the compile log. Velocity's link will tell you all you need to know.

When that happens, the easiest solution is to select the entire map, go to tools>center origins, and you're good to go. However, this won't work if you have purposefully moved entity origins away from the center on some other entities (duh).

Bonus tips. It looks like you've func_detail'ed the wrong things. That large wall that subdivides the map should be world geometry and all the floating geometry that can't, or isn't one of your func_breakables should be func_detail. It's also giving the error...

Valve said:
WARNING: Too many light styles on a face (XXX,XXX,XXX)
At the coordinates specified there is a surface lit by too many "effect" lights. This includes lights that have a name (which compiles both on and off status so you could switch them) or a light using effects like flickering. Remove some of them, disable flickering effects or make sure they don't have a name.

Note:
A surface may only be lit by up to 4 lights with different targetnames. This means a face can be lit by unlimited different light styles as long as they share up to 4 names.

This doesn't help at all but if I didn't know any better, based on the title of this thread I'd think I was on a plumbing forum.

oh wow o_o
well then, that's a lots of help!
I'm currently compiling the map, if it didn't work i'll test a few things... if that also didn't work i'll just come back here.

If your compile is taking that long I'd say your water not working was the least of your concerns.

Or, indeed, anything else? Might as well get it all over with.

Or in other words, time to learn about visibility optimization.
