    I save my maps every ten seconds, on average.

    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.

    This is my standard process:
    >Move one brush 1 unit
    >Save
    >repeat about 500 times with no issue
    >Forget to do this for 5 minutes
    >Hammer Crashes

    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.

    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.
