    Whenever I compile my map, I get this error:

    -2.337347 -1.299201 0.000000
    -2.337347 -1.278825 0.000000

    make_triangles:calc_triangle_representation: Cannot convert

    I checked on interlopers and traced it error to these rockets:

    Has anyone experienced this before and if so, what should I do.

    Does the map fully compile or does this cause it to stop, if it works I'd go and have a look at the map in game and see if it's there or if there are any problems. Otherwise I'd have no idea, try rebuilding the prop from scratch and/or changing the model, that's what interlopers says anyway.

    Ignore it.

    Seriously. It happens with some models, but it's a safe error to ignore.

    Think it has to do with n-sided polygons, though I'm not really sure. The only fix would be to decompile the model, take it into a 3D editor (3DS, XSI, Maya, Blender, etc), find the bad polys, and rebuild them. But the error has no effect on your map, so it's not worth fixing.
