    Hello everyone,

    I have a little problem with my Info_observer_point: It does not show all the entities it should show! I have a rather large hall with models and glass (as func_brush), but when I start the map, i see a rather plain view of this quite detailed room. But when I push Space on my keyboard, those hidden entities appear - has anyone an idea?

    If necessary, i could post a before - after pair of screenshots to show the "effect".

    Your observer point may be partway into the wall or ceiling

    Yeah, make sure that the observer point is not inside or otherwise obstructed by something.

    Yup, it's either outside the map or inside a brush...

    No, it's definitely outside any object (and, of course, inside the map), and i have already placed it for testing purpose in another part of the hall, with the same outcome.

    Here is a screenshot taken from hammer, so that you can see that no obstacle interferes with the entity:

    any other suggestions are welcome as this is one of the last things i want to fix before the first release.

    that happens in my arena map too. Hit space bar and the control point appears.

    I haven't noticed it in other maps so I don't know if it's a Hammer thing or what.
    Can't say I have really looked for it either.
