Yep a problem map.
I erased something from maps (light giving textures, etc.).
Before that compile time is about 150 minutes, now it's 23 minutes.
Kinda small area but i don't know why this is taking to much time...
Help!

Here's the Log.

1. You made a huge skybox around your map. Of course VIS would take hours to finish.

2. Use func_detail for complex brushwork. Seriously, I didn't manage to find even a single func_detail in your map.

3. Lots of intersecting brushes. I'm not sure if it's ok to embed detail brushes into other brushes, but I can assure you that two intersecting world brushes will increase your map's filesize and will badly affect the performance.

4. I suggest you to replace all such patches

with better ones

Always tie such brushword to func_detail.

5. You have some invalid solids in your map. It's surprising that your map even compiled.

6. You should use texture lighting (texlights) instead of usual lights.

Despite all these problems, the map looks pretty interesting. Would be nice to see a polished and optimised final version.

lol was it that bad xD ??

sounds too much professional for me but i'll try now. Thnx :)
( I didn't ever used any func_detail in my life :D )

What is textlights? i'm remembering someone said about that but i forgot.

Texlights:

Textures which emit lights. Lol.
Also, yeah, please, use func_detail for detailed brushes which interrupt VIS.

Texlights are lights emitted by textures.

If you want to know more about what texlights are and how to use them, read about the info_texlights and light_surface entities. There are enough tutorials about how to set up texture lighting in your map.
