Working on my new HLDM map. I need your comments to improve it.

w_poly reaches 2000, did you compile with fast VIS? Compile with VIS -full. Also same problem as with your previous map, an animated light is causing extreme fps drops. Other than that nice geometry but texturing and lighting are a bit repetitive.

Thank you, Bruce. Any advice about FPS drops and texturing/lighting?

Try adding Hint brushes to corners if you know how to add those. Also make everything that doesn't cause a leak or open a room too much, a func_detail

Some basics regarding what hint brushes are.

As for the placement, you should try following this guide instead: https://gamebanana.com/articles/59

It's for Source but there shouldn't be any significant difference.

Like I said, make sure you compile with VIS -full and remove all animated lights, make the trucks func_wall or func_detail. As for lighting, use diffrrent shapes, sizes, placements and colors of lights.

Almost everything i made func_wall already and vis full. You are right, i see 3000 wpoly and it's really crazy. I'm afraid this map gonna trash.

As far as I know func_* entities are always rendered no matter where you currently are and they also add up to the entity limit. Unlike func_detail.
Don't forget that hints can help too.

Bad map design can also be a problem. If you have any badly-made parts of your map that are relatively expensive for the engine to render then try redesigning them, partially or completely.

But even if your map reaches 2000-2500 wpolys in certain spots then it doesn't mean it's trash, believe me. I mean, it's 2018 and nowadays people are definitely capable of running 2500+ wpoly maps at a framerate higher than 30 FPS.
