Compile process vrad.exe not finishing.

I am trying to compile a very complicated map, filled with trees and so far it works; however, after I added the last needed tidbit of stuff the Valve Radiosity Simulator fails at building the visleafs.

Yes, this compile has a lot of errors mostly pertaining to things that appear missing to the compiler but its because the map is for Garry’s Mod being made in the source base 2013 editor. That last part is what the problem is, and I wan’t to know if anyone has made a much more powerful vrad.exe for Hammer Editor, that I can use to replace the current vrad so the map can be fully compiled, or is there a way to reduce the amount the vrad.exe has to do to the map without deleting anything? I have tried using func_visclusters and it helps but not by much, the .vrad still has issues at the same point in the compile process.

NOTE: I run vrad in fast compile, I don’t think this should be an issue but I sure as hell ain’t going to wait hours doing nothing while my big ass map is being compiled, I may make an exception if this is the absolute issue though.

I find that it crashes there if you either have too many complex visleaves or too large ones.

Oh, you’re compiling vvis on fast. Compile it on full.

I already compiled vvis on normal, its doesn’t make a difference:

What are all the ways I can make the vrad have an easier time of no one has made a much more powerful vrad.exe?

Uh, raise lightmap scale on some textures and chop up larger brushes.

Too many patches (too much area on maps brushes) causes VRAD to run out of RAM (2 GB space) usually.

Well, ok then, thank you very much for the help! but if there is more I should know about the vrad.exe I would gladly love to hear about it.

Read these.

VRAD overview
Lighting Optimization
And read some of the linked pages to get a better overall knowledge of the process.

Ok, awesome, thank you very much! I will check these out!

Not only was this successful but it was fast! The visclusters made the vvis.exe super speed and the vrad.exe did a full compile but even on fast, it actually went fast, so thank everyone so much for their help! I appreciate very much to everyone’s contributions to the thread, if I need more help I know the place to go!

I fixed the issue by the light maps, I brought down all of my 16 scaled light maps to 30 and for the light maps that would have no real light cast on them got like 200-500 scale, and the visclusters made everything easy/fast so the compilation of everyone’s help made the vrad have an easy breeze.

Thanks again for the help!

The map i was making is released and now live on GM workshop http://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=271787211&searchtext=
