    i turn off all of the lights and listen to shoegaze while crying
    i read in a tutorial that it's easier to cope if you just slash your wrists. is this true?

    Reopen, reload, assess losses.
    Everybody else seems to be acting like hammer crashing is as bad as finding out that your favorite tvshow is ending

    Panic about when the last time I saved was. Hammer will crash most often when I try to save/make a big adjustment in my map, which is unfortunate. In this way, watching Hammer crash is like watching the world slip from underneath me... not pretty, but oddly dazzling.

    Open it up again. I mean, I save after almost every change, so it's really no problem to me.

    I save literally after 2-3 mins at latest, basically i start wondering when i last time saved and save again. I save a lot.

    That comes through learning. I've had cases where hammer loads blank file if i tell it to load the map vmf again after crash when it asks. So i say no and open it myself. I've also had hammer loading broken file, because hammer was saving at the time as my pc crashed or power went down. So literally it screwed up the file itself by autosaving. Autosaving also causes random lag on bigger files, so i have always that turned off.

    I suggest everyone to keep 1-2 day old backup from your file in different location or drive. That way you don't lose anything if the bad things happen.

    Actually none, because I have laptop, which was probably earlier Nokia 3310. I think, it was made of Nokias due looking how much times I hitted it (Once I was hitting it so hard, that my parents was thinking, that someone was trying to get to our house by destroying door)

    Reopen it. I save after every single change I make. I ctrl+s probably 30 times a minute if I'm moving and editing heavily.
