    Hi, I'm new to hammer but have some experiences with Unreal Ed. My question is in terms to the buildings found in maps. If they are more than one story do you build the build a one piece or do you build it in layers and then stack them on top of each other? I've been searching for a tutorial or insight on this so if anyone has any tips or anything at all that would be a great help.

    Thanx:mellow:

    Gotta follow whatever works best for you.

    I kindof like layering to a degree, but I never do anything the same way twice.

    You can use the cordon tool (red box outline top menu) to section off the area you work on. So you can build floor one. Then start floor two above it and at anytime you can adjust the cordon (yellow black lined tool next to cordon tool) so you can only see the first floor, or second...
