The bottom counter, PLN, what does it mean? It`s slightly over max in a couple of spots in a map I`m making.

Hmm, yeah probably. Yuck. Guess I`ll need to do some deleting then.

Single sided lines are your friend when it comes to vanilla mapping.

The number of two sided lines you have has no direct effect on the visplane count. Two many different sector flats, lighting, and heights visible from one spot is what you want to avoid. Keep them limited, and in general you won't have any problems with VPOs (people who understand the rendering engine better than me can explain why that isn't always the case).

I was mostly referring the use of them for blocking certain areas to reduce VPO count but you are right double sided lines won't really have much an effect apart from increasing seg counts.

If your version of Chocorenderlimits is up to date, press F6 to see exactly where visplanes are being split. Often times you'll be surprised by what's eating up the most of them.
