I've seen a lot of maps that are outside (not inside a building), and was wondering how you would make something like that with no leaks. My first guess would be to build the map, then build a big box around it with a clip texture, but I wanted to check before I go and build a map to find out I wasted my time.

By the way, thanks for not bein a bunch of douches, this is one of the few communities that haven't greeted me with "Your a faggot, gtfo"
So far everyones been actually very helpful

Now that I got that out of the way, making a clip brush around the map wouldn't get rid of the leak problem, the outer walls cannot have a clip, origin, null or aaatrigger texture. You can however make a sky over your map like this (the blue part is the sky - brushes with the sky texture).
...and that's the bottom line because Mate de Vita said so.

Ah I see.
If I used a world map, and made the enclosure you made a clip texture instead, that would work too right? Like make the blue part a clip texture, then add a world sky.
