    I have been editing the sdk version of badwater a bit, and I have been having so much trouble.

    First off, the skybox is fail. I did not touch the skybox that valve put it in, and yet it looks like this:

    [​IMG]

    And then, when I look towards a certain direction of the map, I get an error in the top corner (Warning: overflowed CClientRenderablesList group 7) <-- this has been a bitch to find any help on.

    Here's my compile log:

    Load a pointfile. Looks like you have a leak.

    But before the storm comes, you probably should have let out the fact you're editing a Valve map. >.<

    if you didn't mess with the skybox but you're getting hall of mirrors, did you turn off the skybox visgroup and then hit compile? All necessary visgroups need to be turned on before you compile. What about badwater are you trying to mess with exactly? Tweaking valve maps is fine to learn for yourself but i wouldn't recommend tweaking it then releasing it cause you'll get hatemail

    = hole in your map to the void = a leak.

    Load your pointfile: Map > Load pointfile. On the menu bar.

    [​IMG]

    It will show a red line in your map, both on 3d cam and 2d views to your offending hole.

    [​IMG]

    Nodraw doesn't work on displacements. Go to where those coordinates are and delete them/retexture them. Plus turn off all your visgroups other than displacements to find it easier.

    [​IMG]


    If you get further errors put them into here: http://www.interlopers.net/errors/

    edit: Your sky isn't working because you wrote your skybox in wrong. You have skybox/sky_day01_01*.vmt when you just want skybox/sky_day01_01

    You'll probably also find that fixing the leak stop about 10 other errors as a leak prevent vvis from finishing and so your portalfile isn't created. When a sealed map compiles a portal file is created that helps determine what gets rendered on screen from where. If this portal file is not created, the entire map is rendered at once, excluding manual fade distances on props and overlays.

    edit2: your best bet is to just get a server plugin for this. If you don't know what you're doing, this is going to turn out looking like crap, with multiple errors and console spam. Ironicly, only a dedicated mapper could pull this off properly, but dedicated mappers are busy making real maps rather than official re-hashes.

    Ah yes this reminds me: TF2 Themes Plugin

    Try this out. While it won't adjust textures, it does pretty much everything else and looks awesome.
