when i compile my map it takes ages. I have a pretty detailed prefab and some spikes and cyliders but thats it and it isnt even finished yet. I have waited now for like a half hour and it has only come to 20% leaf thread.

how long should it take to compile a map like de_dust2 or de_inferno?
plz help. if u got any advise that could reduce the compile time i would be very happy

I've made maps that took 10 minutes to compile and I made a map that took 6 hours to compile. It really depends... Either way, there isn't anything you can do about it, really.

If this is just a test and not the final version of the map, there is no need to include the textures.

Oh, so you're fine. If you don't know how to include textures, then you aren't.

Just let it compile...

Complex geometry(like cylinders) should be turned into func_wall. Faces that can never be seen by players should be covered with the NULL-texture.
QUACK! QUACK!

Like KD said, if there is a face that will NEVER be seen then NULL it. If it can be seen, bad things will happen.

Yes. Do not add that part until it's the final compiling.

Brushes with AAATRIGGER should be completly covered with AAATRIGGER, don't put any NULL on those.
QUACK! QUACK!
