Map Error. BSP not being created.

I have read my log and i think i may have found the error:


Brush 22: FloatPlane: bad normal

But I am not sure what that means.
If anyone can help me fix this error, it would be appreciated.
Here is the rest of the logs:

Thanks, blackfire.

It’s probably one of your vertex planes. If you have brushes forming a tunnel or an arch way, one of those could be causing the problem. Try deleting anything similar to that and see if it compiles afterwards.

I have no idea what is causing it.

Delete the brush and remake it.
