    Hi all, So during the 72hour jam I had the brilliant idea of remaking shipment from Call of Duty Modern Warfare, Which is most likely the result of a severe lack of sleep and listening to Scatman John non-stop for 72 hours. HOWEVER: Now that the map has been made and tested I ran into a issue...

    A better way to hallow out objects?

    Instead of using make hallow is there better way? Cause when you do hallow something, the brushes end up really funky and hard to work with. Yeah that's it

    I/O confusion.

    I'm trying to make events happen based on variables, (like # of players etc) but how would I make a event random? Like pick from 1 - 10 and (1 being A and two being B) so I could have random outputs? Im just wondering, if anybody knows that would be very helpful.

    Diffrent languages
