    Max room size?

    What's the max room size for a level?

    Some of the levels in HL2 have large open areas and I'd like to recreate something similar.

    Thanks in advance

    ...collisions are only guaranteed to be accurate to 1/32nd of a unit.
    Awww.. is that all?.. That sux0r3z...


    One thing that should probably be mentioned though is that there could be a major difference between "max size of a room that Source can make" and "max size the average PC can load and run in under 2 weeks." lol You should load up a couple of those levels you liked the size of in Hammer, and have a look at how big they "really" are. Thanks to 3Dskyboxes, some levels look a LOT bigger than they actually are. GL.
    A Lot is two words.

    Yup he's right.

    Don't make a level excessively huge for no reason, or do it "just because you can" (allow if you do that, be sure to post the results on how long it took to load ) but rather make it a nice size, and make the rest 3DSkybox as it saves on a lot of resources (rather than loading a huge model, it loads that same model at 1/16 scale and then just magnifys it)

    Have fun
