Is there any possible way to make the actual allowed MAP SIZE bigger? The maximum space i can have is WAAAAY too small for surf maps. I can barely fit a few waves in there, let alone any other map types too. Am I missing something? Please help!!!

You should have plenty of room in your map, My map is 3 really big rooms, And i know you can fit atleast 5 surf slopes inside of them. Just make sure your box is big enough and make sure you dont have any LEAKS
Hehe No.

well... I can't. Look at how small this is.



By the way, I made the outside box so small because if I made it any bigger hammer would complain that the box is too big.

You can make the box bigger, Just make sure it doesnt trigger max patches, People used hammer to make maps like surf_ski, It IS possible to make a map. Make sure you make your map as high as you can because surf maps do need a lot of room but hammer can manage it. Try making the map a little bigger at 1 time and seeing if it compiles right, my map is 2 big boxes, and i get max patches after a 3rd box, I cant paste it because im too lazy And I noticed you arent using much height , That may also be a reason there isnt enough room.
Hehe No.

Sorry, there is no way to make bigger maps.

Max size is hard-coded into the engine at 8192 inches across (682 feet).

It is pretty small but also your waves look HUGE. Have you compiled that yet?

Like 20 people could fit on that side by side no problem.



Also, if you build too close to the edge of the map-space, the compile will sometimes break. As intermediate steps, sometimes the compilers have to create extra solids and sometimes they are a little bigger than you map. If any of this extends OUTSIDE the -4096/+4096 range, it will fail.
