I've had this issue for awhile now. I have multiple skyboxes for different rooms of the map. I put nodraw on the outside of the skyboxes and when you look outside the map from inside, you can see walls and props from the other rooms of the map.
Is this some way to solve this?
If I were to put the rooms far far away from each other on the map, will this slow down the map?
Have you run VVIS? Without it you'll render the entire map as it hasn't been sliced up into separate visleafs. Perhaps edit the thread and add a compile log just in case there are some other problems. No harm.
That's just the map. Custom maps are shitty a lot of times like that and you can just ignore it because I get that sometimes too.
Most people don't care about it and the two cures I know of are to use only one room with the skybox texture or move the rooms far apart (at least several thousand units)
Lastly you could just make it so the player is too low to see it (IE stack the rooms above eachother, or place a wall so the skybox they see is just sky, so
O is the player, | is the wall, R is the room.
o|r their field of view won't permit them to see it.
Don't worry about it, it's just you seeing through the skybox texture.
Please, just gtfo this game modding community because i like men and wank off to men's underwear magazines.
Way to cut out half of the stuff I typed. And in fact a lot of custom maps that servers use are really terrible, especially surf and zombie maps.
And I said "a lot of times" not "all the time". Notice I edited your post like you edited mine. Now we're even.
Well, there is no fixing it. The only way is to hide it.
It's the source engine, not his map. Unless you move them several thousand units away from eachother there is no way to avoid it
Actually you can fix it, Running VVIS and very very minor optimization (if even needed at all with some constructions) will split the level up quite well so that your not rendering the entire map at the same time.
That would be why I asked him if he ran VVIS and to post a compile log in case there is an error which is killing the VVIS process.
Unless you know with 100% provable fact don't state things as such.
The problem is that VVIS isn't run. I had this problem before i learnt about leaks and sealing off the map from the void.
Read up on what a leak is, and when you fix them all, VVIS will run, and you won't see all the other bits of the map. Please do, it makes your map significantly better looking, and it increases framerate.
