How big can i make my level?

From those of you who have made a level, how big do you think i can make my level in terms # of brushes?

I have a P4 2.4B 1 gig of error-correcting ddr 333 ram, 2 80 gig drives raided, and a Raedon 9700 Pro.

if you've ever played Galactic Battlegrounds or clone campaigns, i'm making a map of the imperial fortress for jk2. Its gonna be on a massive scale, about 30-35 stories high a story being 1.4 times the height of the player. I'm gonna make a labyrinth underneath that connects to a network of secret passages in the walls, and there is gonna be lots of traps . So yea that's my project for the next 2 months or so, and i hear you can port jk2 maps to jk3 so it'll work for jk3 too .

The brush limit is around 30k, I believe.

A map of that ungodly size is a huge task, playing it won't be an easy task either, even for good systems.

Perhaps you should take into account the fact that not everyone's system is high-end.

I think it is 35k--but I was never able to reach that size in Ju'Nekliama, which was the biggest map for JO to date before I split it into several maps.

It was at 20,000 brushes before it started giving me errors, but the brushes aren't the problem. It's the patch mesh, entity, and shader limits that you will reach far beyond the brush limit. I was at 8,000 patches when it started to give me errors, and that was after I reached my shader limit.

If you build your level right, then you can get it quite big if you are VERY lenient on the keys I mentioned.

1024 maximum internal shaders for JO, I think they upped it for JA.
