    For some reason I get this ugly shadow under the arch.
    This was compiled with youme's tutorial.

    Well I'm no expert on mapping by any means, the first thing that I thought of when I saw that picture was this:

    The image looks a lot like the issue you are having, could setting up smoothing groups fix it maybe? Just a thought from someone still learning the ins and outs of hammer...

    Smoothing groups helps a lot with this problem.
