Cannot compile error.

I’m nearing the completion of a map, its 3280 by 3258 right now, though i am going to make it bigger.

The problem is that i can’t test it, it wont compile and wont let me run the map to check for in-game problems.

Heres the compile log:

The command failed. Windows reported the error:

and it gives me this error:

i’d like to finish the map, but even if i did it wont let me convert the vmf to bsp, please respond as soon as possible.

Thank you for your time.

You reached the limit of entities, try decreasing it. :\

Is there a way i could keep most of the stuff but avoid this issue, or increase the number of max entities? I’ve already remove about 50 entities.
It also says its having trouble reading the bsp. but im trying to create the bsp.

It’s failing to create the bsp because you have too many entities. You just have to keep cutting back.

I’ve seen maps way more crowded than this, how come mine isnt working?

crowded =/= lots of entities

Alright, i’ve remove nearly every physics prop in the entire map and its still giving me the error, if theres a way to increase the maximum enitites i would greatly appreciate the help.
