I was just wondering where you would use caulk brushes in Quake 3 Arena Maps. I already know you use caulk behind curves to seal off the map from the hull. I also know that you use caulk anywhere in the map where a player can't see but the answer is where exactly; is it in between brushes, the outer side of the skybox (Facing the hull of the map), behind brushes where you can't access and see, example: The brush faces towards the hull of the map, or if there's a room with two floor brushes; do you put the caulk in between them and caulk the faces facing the hull?
I also wanted to know if you do use caulk brushes in the way listed above, does the performance of the map increase, example: Do the Frames Per Second (FPS) increase and r_speeds decrease for better performance/Playability in maps?
If any of you experienced mappers or anyone that knows how you use caulk brushes please post a reply.
