ALWAYS SAVE YOUR PROJECTS!!!!
I save my maps every ten seconds, on average.
i have a habit of spamming ctrl+s
sometimes im in tf2 looking around and think im in hammer's 3d view and hit ctrl+s a few times
what is this post
Just found a picture and it reminded me to make a post to tell other map makers to not be like me and save...
Every time I select a brush I begin spamming Ctrl+S.
You never know when hammer will crash itself.
My hammer always crashing at moment, when I realize that I don't do Ctrl+S spam for 10 minutes
If I could I would bound Mouse 1 to save...
This is my standard process:
>Move one brush 1 unit
>repeat about 500 times with no issue
>Forget to do this for 5 minutes
I spam ctrl+s even if im not doing anything, and im just going between hammer and the forums of the internet or a youtube video.
Ctrl+s is our savior.
Ctrl+S, Rinse, Repeat
Which is quite annoying when your browsing online.
Dropbox masterrace right @Muddy ?
I'm close to OCD about this after all the hammer crashes...
I use Hammer the same way I play Bethesda games, I keep spamming the save button.
Wow, good to know that this post is decently popular... every time i move something I hit ctrl + s now...
ctrl-s has long since abandoned me, every time my map gets even a bit complex, and I'm talking mid alpha version, hammer hangs for a few seconds every save, and if I spam it, hammer hangs for 5 seconds for every time I pressed ctrl-s. My system isn't even that bad either.
