    Every time someone follows this tutorial, God destroys an orphanage, with burning kittens raining from the sky.

    I swear.
    I want to make a Youtube account JUST to downvote this.

    Reaction text going in here.

    Thats gonna be laagggyyy dude.

    Hold up a sphere to carve with? Doesn't that.. BREAK HAMMER? I'm seeing more white... White white white! This is more scary than anything. This si why you learn displacements!

    This isn't making me rage. This is making me laugh my ass off! These things would never compile XD. This cliff stuff is really hilarious. lololol Those cliffs look so bad.

    Advanced carving? EHEHEHEHE. Thiis guy wins. PLEASE SAY he has some in game shots.

    LOL COMPUTER LAGGING. Man, these microbrushes are making me laugh my ass off. HAMMER CRASH LOL.

    This guy better be trolling.

    O:

    He who has the most triangles in the map wins! CAAAARVE!

    If Hammer had a boolean tool...there could be a lot of problems avoided. And they could completely remove the carve tool.

    I lol'd quite literally at 0:43 when the ground block became shattered glass. :O

    But by the end of that segment I'd stopped laughing and started shuddering. This guy is evidently still quite new to Hammer to not only do this instead of using displacements, but to actually expect it to work. I admit someone just starting out would definitely not know how awful that would be (I didn't), but seriously ... don't make a tutorial unless you KNOW WHAT YOU'RE DOING, and make sure you've tested your own tut method to ensure it WORKS IN THE FIRST PLACE. :p

    I see he even got some of those nonexistent, non-removable "plates" the carve tool spits out onto large complex carved surfaces. Nasty stuff, those.

    I'd like to see that map he mentions. :p But if my computer catches fire attempting to run it, I'll expect compensation.

    This is definitely a joke, there's no way he would be serious.

    I couldn't stop laughing at this.

    Actually, as with all things, carve is a useful tool for bridging your skill level as you learn how the editor works. hating on it is like hating on beginning reader-level books, it's just a stepping stone.

    I didn't bother watching this all the way through first.

    When I did, I started screaming OHHHH NOOOOO at the "advanced carving" part

    Can you say, "Fail"? I started laughing the instant it said Making Terrain with the Carve Tool. I'm like, are you serious? There's no way a decent computer could run that well.
