    did you rebuild the map? Happens to me in UED2, I add a sheet then it just dissapers for no reason. When I rebuild all is well! If not mabey by some chance you turned the surface setting to invisible.

    lol is it just the cube. Keep at it though, like I did my first map was pretty much that. But start looking at other peoples maps, and get inspiriation by playing the ones in unreal tournament, base game flow and geomerty styles off from them. Took me awhile before I got any good.

    On Another Note:

    Don't be intersecting, deintersecting, and subtracting sheets, because thats just no good.

    It's unlikely you've turned it invisible, invisible surfaces are only actually invisible when in Realtime Preview mode (the little joystick icon on the viewports) - otherwise they're visible like all other surfaces.

    Right click a surface and select SurfaceProperties. The invisibility flag is in the options there :)
