I've been away from Hammer for 1 year and a half and I remeber it was working great.What exactly happened in the meantime that makes him so bad :shock: ? I will start mapping again in a few months and I want to know what the hell is going on here.

It's quite stable, you just need to CRTL + S like you were in love with those two buttons and if you try to do something experimental, be prepared that it will crash.

Experimental? Most crashes for me come from opening the stupid entity dialog.
Have a question related to modding or something I posted? Something that needs staff attention? I haven't been active lately, but feel free to PM me or message me on Steam(link below)

Most crashes for me happen when I click on the Close button for the Entity Properties window. It just instantly closes with no error message, no saving of progress, and no warning. Luckily I autosave every 5 minutes so I do not lose much data, it is just frustrating to the point of punching babies and pitching kittens.

Hammer isn't too keen on deleting entities that somehow got a connection.

You know if you don't like hammer you could always use Google Sketchup and a batch compiler :smt002
There is also Microbrush2. It's pretty good

Both doesn't do anything entity related, so they're out.

Biggest problem i've been having is God awful slow subdividing. And compiler often wanting to crash for no reason at all.

Anything other than using the buttons on the left screen is experimental.

When it starts compiling, don't touch hammer. AT ALL.

I think we can all conclude its highly unstable. Also using custom .vbsp grasses will cause it to crash randomly.

This seems pretty bad. A lot of stress with needing to quicksave so often.
So all this problems started when Valve "updated" the SDK a while ago? If so, this means that if I use the old SDK or a warez non-steam SDK, it will work like a charm. :-D.

Eh, anyway I hope all this will be a thing of the past when I start modding again.

granted I have not been mapping much lately, but am I the only one who has not had any issues with the SDK? I get crashes every once in a while, but not like you guys are saying...
