    When making my KOTH map I accidentally created a second copy of red's half and it is now overlapping with the original half. This makes it incredibly hard to edit the map because the are 2 brushes when it seems like 1 brush. I want to know if there is anyway I can delete the overlapping brushes automatically because it would take too long to do it manually.

    1: Do you use some form of source control for your maps?
    2: Is the vmf from before the copy not overwritten?
    3: If you're still in Hammer session, can you undo back to before you copied?
    4: Are any of the autosaves (default is C:\HammerAutosave) from before this copy?
    5: Is there an older version you can go back to?

    If the answer to all of the above is NO, then your remaining options are to delete them all manually, redo the copy from Blue's half, or perform notepad surgery by finding and deleting the most recent solids and entities.

    Thank you for your help, Blade x64! I unfortunately had to go through the map manually, but it didn't take as long as I thought it would.
