    Ooohhh goooddd. For some reason when hammer just crashed, it didn't auto load the automatic save of my map. I had a lot of progress done.

    So, where does hammer save these? Is there a way to manually do it?

    Please tell me there is.

    edit: Nevermind! Found it!

    Default is C:\HammerAutosave

    Fit a logic_timer in our heads and maybe we could start to remember to save at least once throughout our sessions :p

    Everytime this happens to me it happens as i deselect a brush and go to the menu to save. Then the memory spazzes out and hammer crashes. Normally Hammer's auto save gets the last couple brushes created but i lost a good 10 minutes work pasting props and making ropes.

    Agitating, especially since i do save frequently.

    I set hammer to save every minute with 5 iterations.

    I guess I got too reliant on that though, because when it didn't auto open I freaked, realizing I hadn't saved manually in about an hour.

    The every minute save has saved me a ton of lost progress.
