    Put the full compile log here, it's a very handy tool that checks a compile log for errors and gives a description of each one.

    I am actually not able to. Hammer crashes when i interfere with the log before its done, and it is crashing when this error appears. Would uploading the .mdmp file help?

    hammer should save the compile log to a text document with the same name as your vmf, in the same location as your vmf is stored. If you have ABS' mapping resource pack it'll be in 'Team Fortress 2 > sourcesdk_content > tf > mapsrc.

    This error isn't listed on interloopers as it seems. This error might be caused by super thing brushes or just invalid brushes. Do you have some odd ones in your map? Redo them. Can't find them? Use the cordon tool to compile parts of your map until you find the area that causes the issue and check the brushes there.

    Also there is another mistake in your map. "Warning: invalid neighbor connection on displacement near (723.00 797.00 -1532.50)"

    This won't mess up your compiling but you probably don't want it. When you create displacements, only select the faces of the brush that is supposed to be a displacement, because the other faces will then disappear. If you select all of them, the other faces will be displacements and will be compiled and just waste resources and can also cause bad lighting.
    To fix this, select all displacements you have which you don't need, go to the displacement tab and click "destroy" which will then remove all selected displacement faces.

    I actually found why it wasn't working. A had accidentally created a super small brush to the power of three
