if you notice in the SS, that none of the textures are aligned, that is because I selected all and reset textures in an effort to solve a problem with texture scale that was causing BSP to fail.. It worked but loading the map would still crash the engine. "Bad Surface Extants." it says.
I managed to compile a "working" version of the map by placing a giant brush in the middle of it, effectively blocking view to the other side. It runs fine apparently in Quakespasm no problem but the map was targeted for quakeworld and in QW its a disaster.

I thought that running a full vis overnight might solve the QW issues but when I woke up it still had 33 hrs to go. Also in QW it takes some time for it to load and you need the -mem 128 command line too.
It was a lot of fun putting this map together but find that working within the the perimeters of QBSP and engine (somewhat restrictive) capabilities to be an unforeseen challenge. I'm still compelled to work on it, but a lot of my focus will be on scaling it back, or salvaging the more clever brushwork (by my standards) for more sensible application.
I loved mapping for Quake back in the day and find that modern editors are so fluid and responsive that it's very easy to become drunk with power.
