Unbounded volumes, files unable to be found. Whats going on?

I’m working on a test with blend textures and have a lot (226 to be exact) of 256x256 faces with power of 3 displacements. I’m getting at least two errors during compile, and it even crashes error checker.
Well, here’s the compile log:

The command failed. Windows reported the error:

Pretty much, what’s causing the problems and how can I fix them?

Probably invalid brushes. My best bet would be to copy those coordinates you see in the compile log and go to View > Go to coordinates, and plug those numbers in, find them, and delete them.

I try it, but then it says: “Please enter three coordinates, space-delimited”.
I’m copying the straight from the log, so… What?

How big is your map?

Well, the ground is just 64 units from the limit of the hammer grid, so would it help if I move it up?

Delete the brushes and remake them.

Seriously? 226 brushes are a lot to remake.
Not to mention the 227 different decals as well.

Not all of them just these.

Go to the pos of each one, and remake them.

Well, hammer wont recognize those as actual coordinates. At least I think that’s the case because of that error I got when I put in the coordinates.

Take out the comas and parenthesis.

Now I just feel stupid. Anyways, the skybox was screwing everything up for some reason. However, now I’ve got this:

Is this going to be a problem or affect anything because I need everything to be working properly.

Well you didn’t run Vvis so you will render everything. Which you probably wont want because your map will lag if its huge like that.

Thats the only thing you should worry about.

It’s not really that big, it was just very tall. Thanks for the help.
