    Hi,

    I know there are a lot of threads about water and it's possible leaks etc...

    Now, I checked all possible leaks using different methods (pointfile, compiler, compiler checker, manually, the valve developpers site, ...)

    However, I didn't managed to find the error.

    It would be great if you could just take a quick look at the compile log below or at my map file (zippyshare.com).

    Many thanks in advance.

    WOW!
    Much much water!
    I really don´t know if you need this all, but if not then you can put about 50% or more into the 3D skybox.

    For me everything worked fine. Haven´t modified anything and the water is there.
    [​IMG]
    (no cubemaps sry)

    Here is the bsp and log.

    Btw.: I made this some time ago:
    Water in 3D Skybox
    Should help you with the 3D skybox. ;)

    Have Fun!

    NICE!
    First one question, how could I implement your skybox (water in skybox) into mine? Cause this should help me a lot!
    EDIT: Ok, I see, you made a skybox at each side of you map, never tought it could be so handy.

    Secondly, now the water is visibly present, really strange...

    Thirdly, many thanks for your useful reaction and very constructive help!

    power 4 is bad
    ragdolls + power 4 displacements = doom/server crash

    Yea, don't use power 4 displacements. They are unstable and crash TF2/servers if physics interactions occur with them. Use multiple brushes at power 2-3.

    Thanks Fubar, this worked. Never thought this could be a problem.
