ok i did the clip button on all the angles and it worked! the map compiled but i put in more than 3 light sources around the map like in the rooms of the buildings and they didnt show up like they were deleted.. is there somewhere were i can change the amount of lights able to put into the map? and can you set it so that way when you are far away you wont see the environment around the map.. like in the distances you can see everything? if you are far away some of the map cuts out

You'll need to increase the max draw distance. Also make sure that the lights you created weren't in any geometry; they need to be floating outside of them as it were.

Wow, you reply quickly, that was a placeholder for me trying to find out about it :p

I don't have Hammer installed so there should be a map properties option or something; also the above post has been edited for the lights. It shouldn't have deleted them.

well, i changed the environment light source and it does make a difference, but when i place lights in the rooms for some reason it will only show a max of 3 of them through out the map.. like it has been set for only 3... is that something i can change. i learn quick but there are things that i havnt learned yet...

when you place a light on a wall does it have to be moved away from the wall a bit like suspened in the air for it to work properly for all of them?

Yeah, it should be just slightly offset so that it isn't in or on any walls or anything.

And, map->map properties->max viewable distance.

Hey, it's cool, you have to start someplace ;)

And remember, Google is a pretty decent resource. It's where I get most of my answers from :p

Size wise, yeah probably. Modern hardware should be ok with that sort of stuff. What was the default?

4096 was the original.. but after about 300 feet in the map the sight distance would cut out.

Fair enough, you should be able to increase it again if that issue comes up again. Basically the map can be (somewhat under) -4096 to +4096 so 7000 should cover you, even on the diagonals. Even if it doesn't, just bump it up a bit more.
