Here comes some glitches i've found:
- If you will jump in a water here - Dl.dropbox.com  , you would see a hole in a rock on the left -> Dl.dropbox.com .
- A tiny little hole here - Dl.dropbox.com  -> Dl.dropbox.com  .
- I have easily  get to the top of tree house by jumping from the branch - Dl.dropbox.com  , Dl.dropbox.com , Dl.dropbox.com , Dl.dropbox.com .
- Is that grass suppose to grow through the concrete? Dl.dropbox.com .
- Weird glass shader, looks like it alphatest, why not transparent? Dl.dropbox.com .
- Inverted bumpmap Dl.dropbox.com
- Same place what i've wrote about in a news comment - Dl.dropbox.com , Dl.dropbox.com .
- In my view, that lamp post looks a bit out of place, but that's not a glich or bug, just a thought Dl.dropbox.com .
- Where is a ladder? :D Dl.dropbox.com
- More thoughts, that plant looks out of place - Dl.dropbox.com .

Some bump maps are looking out of place, like this one - Dl.dropbox.com , that texture suppose to be smooth, not so embossed. And that wood texture on a wheel  should be smooth too Media.moddb.com .
Hope it's not useless information :3

So this is really helpful, thank you. Screenshots are much appreciated, I will try and get most of this fixed.

Some points:
"A tiny little hole here - Dl.dropbox.com  -> Dl.dropbox.com" dammit... yeah it looks odd. I added that at the last minute thinking, "hey, this wall is being propped up, let's give it a reason to be with a small crack" addittedly it didn't turn out looking too fantastic haha. I'll fix that...
"Weird glass shader, looks like it alphatest, why not transparent? Dl.dropbox.com" - I can't :( Because I've got glass windows and other translucent stuff in that map, Source has issues with its alpha sorting, so I pretty much have no other option here.

The bump mapping issues I'll fix too, I think I went a bit crazy with bump maps over the entire game.

Thanks for playing and posting this, I hope you enjoyed the mod.
