hello, I am having problems with my map and I am trying to fix the area portal but don't know how. I cannot find any sorry of tutorial about it that is specifically for area portals. here are 2 screenshots of my problem.
hopefully someone will know of my problem and can show me in the right direction
Go through your map and try cleaning up some of your brushes and any models as well. Brushes colliding into each other or even a model falling outside of your map can cause this issue aka map leaks.
Did you get in the dos command prompt come up saying that there was a map leak by any chance?
This question was just asked on the map-craft forums. Go there and search for it - it's no more than three weeks old.
I'd explain it myself, but it's easier to point people to a solution and answer any additional questions they have.
Thanks, but I now have a different problem related to area portals. when I go through the area portal brush (in game) the doors dissappear until i move out of the brush. does the door and/or area portal have to be set a certain way (detail, structural)
Only one face of the AreaPortal brush should have the "areaPortal" texture on it. The other faces should use textures/system/skip.
