    all water brushes that touch others make them invisible unless under water.
    I did make a cube map because underwater is a missing texture which i didn't like.
    I had also made a water.lod.control but kept everything default.

    Now my map looks like crap because of this ;/

    any help would be greatly appreciated

    You've got it backwards: leaks in your map make water invisible. Find the leak using "load pointfile" and the leak coordinates in the compile log.

    The 1 leak is pointing to a prop sticking out of the bottom of the map its the 2_fort bridge prop but i'd like it to just stick out do i just make the floor blower or nodraw the part sticking out?


    edit: apperantly nodrawing the bottom of the bridges worked lol it never bugged it before though XD

    Sometimes it is enough that a small part of the model is outside of the map causes a leak - but this is issue only for some models. Usually if the model origin is outside of map, this happens but i've seen cases where you need to seal the whole model inside the map in order to stop it from causing a leak.

    I think you are mistaken. Only the origin needs to be inside the map. It can also be inside a brush as long part of the model is inside.

    In other words: Put a brush where the origin of the model is or take the floor and extend it downwards until it covers the origin. It's basically all you can do in a situation like this.
