    Only a few days into the map and already running into issues..

    So my displacements are level 3. When I am on them or any surface and taunt, every displacement goes black. It doesn't ALWAYS go black sometimes for certain angles it does, but it happens enough that this is a problem and I'm making this map for my server so I obviously can't have this. Recompile/restarting tf2 doesn't fix.

    The water I had hidden and am still trying to figure which one to use so don't worry about that. Heavy bot just there to help for scaling since map is very new, the displacement one interlopers always says I have and says it can typically be ignored, it's never caused issues for me before.

    It turns out it was like 4 props, I have no idea why they were causing this issue. Now I have this weird issue where map won't compile what I hide, I make sure to click something afterwards, like I always have..I donno very weird. See now with the only props that didn't make it go black, now it goes slightly a shade lighter when I taunt. Moving them didn't work. I have them slightly in the displacement sand so I assume that's the issue, but I don't understand why. I've always done this.

    -edit- changing the sand texture fixed it. So weird.

    Thats not an issue, thats a feature! Its pretty useful if you don't want to compile with certain brushes or entities to test something, but you don't want to delete them because you might want them back. I don't do this often, so usually before I compile, I press "u", then make sure all of my vis groups are checked, save and compile.

    oh no you have it confused! See I hide a tree, then compile..and when I go to check the map the tree is still there. It's not hiding it at all! It does show changes if i delete or visgroup but not if i hide anything. It's weird too because I ALWAYS hide stuff in my maps because it makes it so easy to test things.

    In that case your map is most likely not even compiling and you're just presented with the old version.

    Also: "the displacement one interlopers always says I have and says it can typically be ignored": what Interlopers also says is this:
    What you see on your map are these lighting errors, so I would definitely not ignore it.

    The lighting errors it speaks of are on those displacements itself. I know what it's talking about it and is only noticeable to displacements that are in each other a lot because I had to connect them. This is entirely different type of lighting error. As I said before, it was the texture causing the issue.


    And I also stated this as well, it's not that the map isn't going to a new version, it does. I already checked for this. It just would not show anything I hid as if it was never hidden to begin with. Any OTHER changes would show,

    Then i asume displacements shouldn't go trough each other.
    You should just use the sew option.
    I hope this fixes your problem. :)

    For some reason sewing never works for me. It does nothing when I try :\ But like I said, displacements weren't the issue. It was the texture ON them.

    For two displacements to sew seamlessly, they have either to:
    1. Share an edge that you want to sew (like, both corners of the sides have to be on the exact same spot on the grid)
    2. It's also possible to sew if the side of one brush is half as long as the other one and one corner is touching.

    Basically, you should read this section carefully: https://developer.valvesoftware.com/wiki/Displacement#Sewing_displacements
