Share pics of the worst HOMs that you've ever seen. Mine is actually in a map that I'm creating at the moment and it is literally a Hall Of Mirrors -> Image

(BTW, I'd actually quite like some help with this, it is horrible and crops up when you're walking down the corridor :( )

That is pretty impressive. If you post a full editor screenshot (or at least wireframe/2D) we can probably tell where your brushwork is messed up, since it doesn't look even. Is everything on the grid?

It was off grid, no wonder I was getting those HOMs. Thanks for that advice Waff :tup: , now I know that you're supposed to keep BSP on grid, I won't have any more problems \o/ .

(I knew that there was some reason for the grid being there)

Right, I've got another problem. I present you... (drumroll) ...The Vanishing Light!

Take one light (brush and actor)... -> Image

Move down the corridor closer to it... -> Image

POOF! it vanishes.

(The brush is semisolid, so I would have thought that this shouldn't be happening.)

The 3D grid. And your problem might be cause it's outside on the grid along with the brush.

Keeping to the grid is rule numero uno of UnrealED

Don't use semisolids unless you have a very good reason to (i.e. you've tried solid and it breaks every time no matter what). And never use nonsolid unless you have an EXTREMELY good reason (like it's a zone portal (always nonsolid), or a light fixture that has a corona inside it).

Everything about the engine and it's calculations is based around the grid. If you don't use it your level will die.

This one here. This just bugs me as I have heard different opinions on this one. Like, "decos should be semisolid," "don't use too much solid brushes..." and so on and so on... And now Waff says what I was always doing. I HATE semisolids.

I think mainly nobody really knew what the deal was until fairly recently (like within a few years from now) compared to back in the early 2000s, but yeah. Semisolids and nonsolids are evil.

I'm making the most randomest map for Unreal and UT now and it didn't die (whew). Maxer 64 don't say anything!! I guess pillars should be semisolids?

Nothing should be semisolid unless you absolutely have to make it semisolid.
