    Hi. I am new to mapping in tf2, but I do have a basic idea of how the mapping process works. I will be posting here if I am trying to figure out some information and Google is failing me.

    First problem:

    I have mapped before, Its just about in beta condition but unfortunately at the last update something happened to the map and every time I load it about 75% dissapears... :O The 25% that stays is generated random (as far as I know)
    Apparently no one seems to have the answer to what the heck is going on.
    If it helps, its one of those longer map types, yet not too long. The original beta was too small so ever since I've been expanding slowly. As soon as I get to the 75% done, this happens. It has three floors and is basically based around the blus invading the reds own base. To take it back the Reds must get all of the control points and to take complete control the blus must do the same. Currently I have no logic at all (Im just making sure the map has no problems with the map)
    This event makes me glad I didnt spend the time putting that many entities in the game. Or is it just an entity I'm missing thats causing this? :huh:

    Check to see if you have radius culling selected. I've had it turn on randomly a few times, and it makes it so that only a certain radius around the camera in hammer is visible/compiled.

    It might be under view, if I remember correctly.

    Well now that you mention that, it could be that. For the same period of time as this error has been going on theres been some weird shit going on with the camera. Perhaps this is it? How do I turn it off

    Just to be sure if this is what is going on here is the weird stuff I noticed

    Hammer having a smaller viewing radius than usual (It doesnt renders brushes as far as normal)
    and apparently not rendering brushes and models not nearby the camera on 3d textured (at least on top)

    Thanks Beetle. I was testing it a bit and I have concluded it was that button, auto-turning on for some reason :|
    Thank you.

    You may be bumping "C" on the keyboard, that is the shortcut button. I occasionally hit it and it's always an annoyance.
