    So, my map was opening fine... I decided to add areaportals for optimization, got some leaks, fixed everything, but when i open tf2 it doesn't load. It goes to "Initializing World" and stops. No crash, nothing. just an infinite freeze. Other maps loads fine. Tried to remove the area portals, but nothing. Does this happened to anyone else?

    Compile log shows no errors, and i can see the map in hammer perfectly.

    This happened to me I'm sure not so long ago. The only thing I could do was cordon it and then it worked, which made no sense (The cordon surrounded the entire map)

    The way I fixed it was to copy and paste the whole map into a new file a save it with a new name...I think.

    Nothing worked. How will i finish my artpass map now? :(

    edit: well, i remembered that i made a drill spin with a func_tracktrain before it stopped working, i'm compiling again with it removed

    edit2: Huh, it worked. damn looks like i will need to make a model

    If you're looking to make it rotate, try this workaround. It's working for my artpass.
