I recently made a map and I was testing it. /map (or /devmap) got this error. I was using GTK radiant 1.5. I also tried removing every pk3 file (except required ones) and placing the map in and I still get the error.. I also ran a brush cleanup. any help will be much appreciated ;)

You have a huge curve patch somewhere in the map. It's too large.

To fix? Easy! This is how to fix in 1.4: (I don't know baout 1.5, but it should be about the same)

Find any patch that's excessively big. Go to the plugins menu, bobztoolz, and click on "split patches". Recompile and test. If it didn't work, you may need to split it again or there's another patch causing the issue.

Let me know if that worked, it should. :cool:

unfortunately it didn't work... :( when I did it to a small curve it disappeared. when I did it to a larger curve, GTK Radiant crashed. It MIGHT of crashed for one of 2 reasons. reason 1 I am running on Windows Vista (cant wait for Windows 7 to come out). and the second reason maybe because I am selecting the curve itself. I didn't understand what you meant by "Patch" :uhm: I do have some large curves and I think it might be the reason, but I dont think I can get rid of them unless I made the map extremely crappy.:uhoh:

Ignore the crash, that's just because you had 2 disappearing patches in a row and Radiant didn't know what to do with them. It happened to me, too.

Here's what you do. If they're disappearing, you don't have enough vertices on them. Select that patch, go to the curve menu, go to insert, and then add 2 columns. Do it again, and add 2 rows. THEN do plugins > bobztoolz> split patches, and it will split.

Split patches can't split without there being vertexes there. Kind of a silly bug, but very easy to avoid.

You can't just delete the unwanted stuff and remake the stuff you do want? It's probably easier than salvaging whatever happened.
