But seriously, it'd SUCK to have that go to waste. There's gotta be a way to keep it... Where are the BSP errors? Are they major? No big deal? I want to see some records broken with this map, I hope you find a way to keep that scale!


Is the whole cave going to be explorable?

Okee, I've moved that polys away from the levelend region and all seems to be ok so far.
I've got a lake there and a little river (very bendy) and the sheet that makes the river's water is bendy as well. There I have some BSP holes. I know that semisolids don't work with nonsolids so I have got solids everywhere.

As for the cave exploration. Well, there's gonna be a devastated village and a temple. So I hope at least 70% will be explorable.

Well, not always. I didn't know that rule and used them together, without much problems IIRC. However, it is considered to be the last thing to try when healing your BSP.

Well, maybe not semisolids versus nonsolids but semisolids vs zoneportals. I can't remember really. I know that when I create a lot of semisolids in a level these semisolids contain holes and create holes on intersected terrains and rooms. That is why I tend to use solid brushes.

Yes. Hero's name is Francis Dough and the villans are Brutes.
