eh. the most common mistake for exceeding MAX_PATCHES is putting a box around your map to protect it from leaks when you have to contour the sky/whatever textures to the walls on your map to make a seal instead of the box around the entire thing. hope that makes sense.
here's a link to demonstrate what i mean..

the first picture is what you may be doing.. the second one is the correct way.



another cause for exceeding max_patches is an extremely large map.
