I got few problems with my map.

Visual bug in the small windows if I move to far away.






And one classic I think I got the solution for but not sure if it's the best one. So how would you guys tackle problem like this?











Thanks for your time, I have almost finished fixing the bugs in this map.

I'm fairly certain that the windows go dark at a distance because the engine is not drawing the inside of the building as an optimisation.

Yep, what DR said. This isn't a bug, its just how the engine works.

I was hoping for some command line fix. But thanks anyways...

Not sure what i will do now. This "bug" is in 2 places in the map maby I'll try to block the view with some large item. Recked car or something.

I know that in Source there are ways to change what distance it happens at, for instance, or to have a certain colour of glow through the windows, but I have no idea about GoldSrc.

I take it there is a sky box beyond the fence?

For the windows, you can change the MaxViewDistance (or something that sounds like that) in the Map->Properties in Hammer. I usually set it to 16384.

Unfortunately, it is not an optimization to make it smaller. It just shrinks the sky box. The sky box is literally just a big box around your head.


For the fence: You can, and should, be able to see through the sky. Make sure to build something that makes sense. You can't put "sky" for example on the exterior of your house. This is essentially what you have done here.

Thanks for the info about max view distance.

The reason it looks like it makes no sense is the map is mostly inside the house and the shipping containers are fix for the gameplay. I was trying to make the map compile faster by taking the part behind the fence out. Guess I'll put back the grass with the trees.

But thanks again.
