Reduce the number of brush models and/or regular models in the map to correct this.

ok, obviously I need to reduce the number of models but anyone know how this 512 limit is calculated? I have no where near 512 models. and what is a brush model?

An entity based brush is a brush model.

One thing you can try is to tie several func_wall/func_illusionary together as one entity. Do this to close by objects, for example:

A bunch of boxes next to each other.
A hedge row made from several brushes.

Remember though, all brushes tied together will be seen. Thatís why you only do it to close by objects and not objects on different parts of the map.

hope this helps.
