    I'm sure the cause is obvious, but for some reason I get odd lighting errors on surfaces of all the props in my map, causing random surfaces on props to be pure white, or just generally darker or lighter than it should be. So does anyone know what's causing this? :p

    Probably a leak?

    The most common and simple error known to Hammer, though the symptons often vary. Seal the hole in your map and your compile should complete successfully. Use the pointfile which you can access under the map tab along your menu at the top of the GUI. A red line will point to the entity closest to the hole in your map which leaked.
