    Dark if you go outside the map or what?

    That's why you shouldn't make fullbright maps :p

    Using model textures?

    check to see if they have model/ or prop/ in their name, if they do you need to use the non model equivelent (forunately for us valve makes 2 versions of 95% of their textures, model and non model)

    perhaps you've added one light entity somewhere hand haven't realised, thus causing your entire map to be pitch black

    because


    So it instantly goes black when you turn on noclip? or it only turns black at certain points whilst flying with noclip. Is it a sudden transition or a fade?

    So what's the problem?

    Usually players don't noclip out of the map during normal gameplay.

    And you map should have lights before people start playing it.

    Add lights.

    Every map has to have lights.

    If you still have problems then, then come back and tell us. Not point telling us about lighting problems when your map doesn't actully have lights yet.

    Thats a wierd problem, but that should put everything back to fullbright to scope out what you've done.
