I'm fairly noob at hammer; just started about a week ago. Can somebody tell me, just by looking at screenshots, whether I'm doing things correct?

Are these leaves split in a decent way for a noob job? I been playing with func_detail on my roof and random things to try and cut leaves down.


Also how about the side here; is this normal for all these unnecessary looking divisions in the leaves?


And this is sort of unrelated, but are these errors normal? (of course, NO errors can be considered normal.. but are these acceptable anyways?)


Also last question..(sorry, I know there is already many questions for one post lol) How can I open my pointfile to spot out leaks? I have the option, as I'm using OB SDK, but I can't find any ".lin" or the other format it wants. I've already compiled to see if that makes one, but no luck.

Thanks if anyone can answer any of these. I really want to finish my house and make it good. (it is my actual house I live in, great first project for any learning mapper, heh)

Well that's good to know, thanks. I made a crappy box with some intentionally unsealed areaportals, and sure enough it produced a pointfile. So I guess my house map is airtight after all.

I don't really know about Source but in the goldsrc games those errors are acceptable, they just tell you that you specified a property that you don't use (this can however cause problems in some cases - for example with some entities' names and targets).

In other words, you should be able to play your map but you might encounter some funny entity behavior (like doors not opening, buttons being unpressable, func_breakables not breaking etc.).
...and that's the bottom line because Mate de Vita said so.
