would be great if you kept us up to date on how the map is doing
It's improving, but it's a slow process. I like to be perfectionist with this. Right now, I'm making a snowy old town and it's taking a long time to create all the houses.
The past few days I've been experimenting with a little tool that lets you convert complex Hammer brushwork into models. This should greatly help optimization and help reduce the memory usage of my map.
I'll keep you guys updated
