Error:
A LEAK is a hole in the map, where the inside of it is exposed to the
(unwanted) outside region. The entity listed in the error is just a helpful
indication of where the beginning of the leak pointfile starts, so the
beginning of the line can be quickly found and traced to until reaching the
outside. Unless this entity is accidentally on the outside of the map, it
probably should not be deleted. Some complex rotating objects entities need
their origins outside the map. To deal with these, just enclose the origin
brush with a solid world brush

You have 2 separate, probably unrelated problems.

1) Coplanar Plane: you have a brush with two faces in the same plane, such that it should just be ONE face. Use Map->Check for problems to find the bad brush and remove or fix it. It will show up as an Invalid solid probably.

2) Brush outside world: you have a brush that's off the end of the grid. It may not show up in your map until you load the .MAP file (not .RMF). Hammer sometimes gets confused by weird-shaped brushes in your RMF and they end up infinitely huge in your .MAP when you export.

ALSO: from your PM it sounds like you made a lot of map before compiling it even once. This is a recipe for disaster since so many little bugs can kill your map. You really should compile often after each change so you catch problems right after creating them.

You are getting that error from the game, right?

Does your map have complicated geometry? Try simplifying it or temporarily removing it just to be sure.

Does your map have extremely scaled-down textures? Scaling down your textures to increase detail makes things look better, but it eats memory at an exponential rate. Half-Life (being from 1998) has very low memory usage limits.

You have a leak in your map.

Leaks can cause about 6,500 different problems so get that fixed right away.

Leak=hole in your map coming from the outside "space".you need to plug the hola to stop the leak.To try to figure out were the leak is coming from open your map.then go to map>load pointfile>yes.Then you will see a big red zig-zagging line.trace it back to its starting point and thats were the leak came from.close that hole.
