    Well, if you've also used semi-solids for as many of the additives as possibly possible, then you're having problems because of coplanar surfaces. These can cause problems.
    There sadly is no general recipe to get rid of BSP holes; you'll just have to try working around them.

    If you didn't use semisols at all then try to convert some of the solid brushes...

    Also try setting the evil brushes to last in the BSP order.

    Make sure you don't have too many overlapping solid brushes.

    Make sure you havn't subtracted from a semisolid.

    Make sure you haven't (de)intersected a sheet brush.

    Check your 2D ed brushes as these are sometimes bad.

    Check your collision hulls don't intersect the walls.

    Fiddle with the slider under BSP in the rebuild settings dialog.

    After vertex editing, check that all the surfaces have corners which are coplanar.

    The list goes on..........

    NEVER use semi or non solid brushes. They can really kill your map unless you REALLY have to use them. (like for zone use).

    Deathman are you kidding? i use semi solids and non solids like mad, it's the only to make over laping textures and since they don't split the bsp they lower node count(in most way, there are exceptions) and i still havent had a bsp hole

    I personnally never use SOLIDS in my maps.Always semi-solids.
    (but I agree this is not a good habit)

    Man and I just GOT here, geeze, well, when are we moving to ISS?


    I use a good healthy mix of everything and I rarely have a BSP hole, except for coplanar bipolar textures on the z scaled plane! (matching coplanar walls)

    clipped brushes are also easily to be the couse for bsp holes, especially after scaling and rotating them

    BEWARE!!!:)

    God Ren,
    Every time I see an attached image of the editor by you, I'm itching to see what it is your making. Intricate looking shit. Can we expect something soon ?
