    Is there a way to view the models at a distance in hammer without it always going to the colored blocks? I understand that is there to speed up camera rendering while mapping but sometimes I would like to get a distant view of how the map looks with all the props and goodies without seeing the colored blocks.

    Thanks.

    keep in mind though that the more you see in the 3d view the slower hammer will run in the 3d view

    Hell yeah, I can't believe I left mine set to normal all this time. I moved mine out to 3000 units and I still whiz around just as fast. I have a sweet rig so I guess it can handle it no problems. Man, what a difference. I can see how it's looking without always having to zoom in to certain parts. Nice.
