    There is opaque, slefllum,translucent, EnvyMask and Show Errors. What do they do and which one should I use for creating buildings for example?

    For me when I build there are textures that look fine when inside the building but outside it looks weird

    Where are you even seeing this stuff? If you're just mapping, none of those things should be visible in Hammer's texture browser. Except self-illuminating, which has a little icon that appears under the thumbnail.

    Those are just search criteria, they don't change anything about the texture you select, they just determine which ones show up in the search.

    I'll show you what I mean. I though it would be a texture problem. Where ever I move there is always this kinda gap. I don't know what it is.
