    As a extremely new mapper I am finding difficulty in replicating the sewer tunnel from ctf_2fort in shape and size into my own design. Does anyone know how? My second question would be if anyone knew how to make the bow and prow similar to that of tc_meridian. Any help would be appreciated.

    There's actually an easier method for the sewer pipes that Killohurtz showed me a few days back that requires fewer steps.

    Say we want a 256x256 hole. First, make an arch that's really thick:

    Then clip:

    As for the boat in Meridian, that's probably done by making the shape from a top down view first with vertex edit:

    Then, copy it a few times vertically:

    Then use vertex edit to slide things back:

    You'll have to mess with the dimensions of things to get it to be the size you want, but the technique should work.

    Um, that boat method is going to create a lot of invalid solids I think.

    Just have to break it into more triangles if so.

    I checked with Alt+P, no issues.
