What is slow, exactly? The compiling process?

If haven't already, you should make an object like that into an entity.

Select the whole thing, Ctrl+T, and choose func_wall.

What do you want the button to do?

The exactly slow compiling process is LeafThread. And i want the button when i press it the windwall starts to turn in a circle way, like in real life. Plz tell me how with details

LeafThread should not be effected by entities, so make sure to do like I said. It is normal for a complex map to take a long time, though. I used to have maps that took several hours to compile.

For the windmill, make it into a func_rotating, and make sure to include an ORIGIN brush in the middle. You should be able to target it with a func_button. I don't remember all the details off the top of my head, so try that and let me know how it goes.

The problem is that I did the windmill a func_wall entity, so I can not ungroup and choose the necessary element, How to ungroup them? tell me pls so I can try what SuperJer said

You can use Ctrl+W to get undo the Ctrl+E. Make sure to turn the non-spinning part back into a func_wall. You don't want to leave little detailed things in the worldspawn.

I don't know the answers. All I would do is guess and check until it works. But it's your map, so you do it!

There should be options in the entity for "reverse direction", "x axis" and "y axis". Try changing those to get it to do what you want.

Ok, Now I have another thing: In wally program, I want to create wad file that contains my texture:
1/ I have 2 photos. One of them, when I do 'paste as new' and write name of texture, the photo comes without colors or very ugly. Solution?
2/ the second photo it pastes normally, but when I add the wad file to hammer and add the texture and export and enter cs to play the map, the loading blocks at 'starting local game server'. Solution plz?

EDIT:
How can I make my own sky to put it in my map? tell me plz

Wally is bad at reducing the color depth. Use a different program to convert it to 256 colors and then paste it in.

I'm not sure about this one. Are you sure it has to do with the WAD file? What size is your image?

You need to make .tga files for the 6 sides and put them in cstrike/gfx/env/skies. If your sky is named xxx then the files need to be:

xxxbk
xxxdn
xxxft
xxxlf
xxxrt
xxxup

I use Gimp. Most people already have a favorite image editor.

And while you're at it you should make sure your textures are one of these sizes:

64x64
128x128
256x256

Anything else is likely to cause problems.

Ok and what about this problem of the vehicle?: First of all i want someone to tell me with details how to create a vehicle(options of func_vehicle ). My problem is when i test the map i want ro drive my jeep , i press E then Z to drive and the vehicle dissappear and i cant drive it anymore And im woundering if i move the path_track from front or side a little bit to top to make it above ground, is that the prob? (If i let the path_track on ground when testing my vehicle 1/2 of it appears and the other half is under the ground and cant drive it..) Solution please

Do you have an origin brush in the func_vehicle? I think the origin brush will align with the path_track. So if you put the origin brush just above the ground, then you can put the path_track the same distance above the ground.

I have an origin brush, and I set the 2 path tracks exactly same distance between ground and path_track, but still vehicle doesnt work, it only works when I press E, then Z to move and drive it and Then I press Space button, so I die with 'damage Crush' (I set it 1000), and just after I die the vehicle starts to work ( PS: even If i put the damage crush=1 and then jump like I do when it is 1000 it doesnt work, it only starts to work after I die )... Solution please

Sorry. I don't know how to fix that.

Maybe try making a simpler shape for the vehicle? Why do you think you are getting caught on it?

I tryed making a very simple brush, and made it func_vehicle, and it works normally, So the problem is the shape of my vehicle?

I guess so. Remember this game is 16 (!!) years old. It can't handle very much complication. If your vehicle is much more than a box, that may be the problem.

You can try adding CLIPs to simplify the shape without affecting the look of it. That may help.
