    It warns about microbrushes, so brushes that are so small it makes the engine go kaboom

    Have you used the carve tool somewhere? If so, look there to try and find the tiny brushes and remove them

    I've been helping Spider out with the various errors he's found such as leaks and whatnot (He's on my Steam friends list).

    This particular error he's posted about had me stumped so I suggested he make a thread here because you guys are smart.

    And indeed you are, as you've pointed out that microbrush thing that I had a sneaky feeling about.

    I do have a question, while I'm here. How does one locate microbrushes, if one has forgotten if they placed any in their map? I'm just wondering 'cause it could happen to me D:

    iirc, you can't locate a microbrush, you can just avoid creating them.... carving, clipping things that are offgrid, making brushes based off prop size then carving/clipping those... all these can cause microbrushes (which are usually 1hu or less in any dimension, I once had a .4x.5x50 hu wide triangle microbrush...

    Small things like these causes the hammer compiler to either compeltely crash, or not respond. The latter being more typical because it takes a bajillion more calculations and Hammer just likes to say "shut up let me work" when it compiles.

    Using VBCT, the Valve Batch Compiling tool, is a great way to help locate errors, it shows what/were it is in real time, so you can tell where an error may be occuring (for example, if its a micro brush VVIS would take forever, and if its a small map on a decent computer, you shouldn't take more than 10 minutes (no detailing that is))


    Go to view, then "go to brush" and put in 89218 and 112484 ... these are the brush numbers with your issues (it appears)

    Ok so since Spider hasn't responded yet, I'll tell you what he told me. Apparently he made a few windows in his map that use DMM so they can be broken, and it seems he clipped a few brushes into tiny pieces.

    Unfortunately, after removing all the tiny bits and whatnot, and correcting the problem (or so he thought) he then told me that the game still crashed.

    So I'm stumped.

    well it gives the brush numbers in the error. 112484. has he tried locating the brush? he might wanna use Cordon too to isolate the problem area. those windows might not be it.

    What Fr0z3n said will fix that particular error. Using go to brush will select the brush in question so if you do it then hit delete it will be removed from the map.

    EDIT: On a side note you'll notice the only errors are in the vbsp section of the compile. Since map breaking errors usually occur in this phase of the compile it's prudent to turn off vvis and vrad in the compile options until you're sure that vbsp is compiling without errors. It makes the difference between a 1 minute compile and a 10 minute compile.
