whenever i try to make an outdoor map, the map tries to compile but then it says the system could not find the file specified and it does not compile. here is the log:

vbsp is having a hard time figuring out your level, it seems to have found a part of your level that is infinite in size. This is, offcourse, invalid

Look near the coordinates given. You have probably an invalid brush somewhere. Delete them and try again to compile.

thanks, i did a few back tracks and found the problem. thank you for the help :smile:
