    Hi, I'm fairly new to mapping and this is my first real problem.

    I've been working on my map with no problems, every now and then going in game to check to see it's comming along alright :)

    But I've just saved it again after making some new rooms, but when I go in game the new features are not there, whats going on?

    you have an error in your new changed map. when you go in game since your new map wasnt compiled *because of error* it will run the one that was old, with no errors.

    The log check for LEAK or ERROR

    ahh right well here's the log, I can't seem to find anything wrong, or just don't know what I'm looking for.

    I'm horribly bad at reading logs, however you want to post the file i can look at your .vmf.

    I had this happen to me today, I managed to fix by deleting my older compiles of the map in my mapsrc and tf2 maps directory. Hammer occasionally has an error were it won't overwrite existing maps correctly. After deleting the older compiles the new one worked and showed up with the changes.

    This looks like the problem to me. Go to View Menu>Go To Brush Number and enter that in, see if there is anything noticeably wrong with it to fix, or just delete it and remake that brush.

    I dunno what I'm doing wrong here, but when I enter any number, and 3394 ofcourse I says "The brush ID does not exist."

    could be because it is invalid, search for it manually, its one youve edited since the last time it compiled properly.

    I would also try doing what Brandished recommended. Same thing has happened to me.
