i tried that method of using blocks then terraformin into landscape but then i did scan for errors and it all went down hill. damn concave polygons! anyways im gonna try using triangle next time as they r less likely to do this than squares. oh and good luck, its lookin good.

Hehe, flat shaded. ^ ^
Can't make much out from that, but I'm sure it's going to be awesome when it's finished.
You should apply some temporary textures so we can see what's what though until you get the right textures. :D

I've had many of my programs crashing, including Adobe Photoshop 7.
But I found out the problem, too many programs running at once.
Programs like Hammer and Adobe takes up lot of RAM, the more RAM you have the less crashing you will have.

Just make sure you make a backup of most of your important programs.
-Or-
Buy Norton Anti Virus, it scans your entire computer through every little file, and if it finds any if kills it off.
And if your browsing the internet and you get one Norton Anti Virus automatically pops up and stops the virus from getting onto your computer.
How do I know because I use it, duh.
