if i have a room with many objects like table, chair,pillar, and any other objects that only use as detail should i tie it func_wall or just world brush?
how about floor and ceiling, window, stairs?

thanx

Doesn't matter if you do a func_wall or just making the brush and leaving it like that , if your using zhlt to compile it won't lag just might add more time to compile

Floors / ceilings / walls should all be world brushes.

Why?

- Because they block line of site.
- Because otherwise you will get leaks.

You should only make detail objects into func_'s. func_wall's do not block line-of-sight. Blocking line-of-sight will make your map faster.

Small, detailed objects with holes can't block line-of-sight anyway, so they might as well be func_walls.

Also, if your small detailed objects are world, they may break up the leafs in your map into many small pieces, which also causes slowness.
