Hammer Help

This is what i find most usful for learning hammer. I do a lot of things based of these tutorials.

No.
3kliksphilip does things in really bad ways.
A direct quote from one of his videos
“I dont know why it works, as it shouldn’t but it does”
you’re better off waiting for lord ned to finish
[sp]hint hint lord ned[/sp]
Just dont use him okay?

No wonder all your maps suck.

Anything else linked out in the Mapping Encyclopedia. FAR BETTER.

If you learn from 3klikksphilip then you will learn utter garbage. He gets confused with clip and carve and teaches people to slice up brushes to make breakable glass windows.

if you watch his videos, he says not to use carve. and i don’t see him using clip tool.

plus, some of his videos are useful. like

He doesn’t know the difference between clip and carve. He routinely uses them interchangeably. He should be using clip, and you admit he doesn’t.

but he doesn’t use carve ether smart one.

So he doesn’t do any complex geometry, or if he does he preaches a longer method of doing it brush by brush and vertex manipulating them individually? Nice one.

Re-uploaded with some changes people suggested. Youtube wouldn’t let me just re-place the old one so I had delete and completely re-upload.

the first video doesnt have much in it. the next really needs something otherwise people are going to complain…

Complain about what? “OH GOD YOUR TAKING YOUR TIME TO HELP ME BUT NOT MOVING FAST ENOUGH CAUSE I’M ALREADY L33T pr0!11!. OH GOD I’M GOING TO STOP WATCHING YOUR TUTORIALS.”

Fine by me.

Would you want tutorials that rushed through everything if you were a complete beginner?

Actually, if you watch his videos, he uses the clip tool and tells everyone that it’s the carve tool.

i didnt say i was complaining. other people might. dont freak out

Well…you seem perfectly happy with someone that teaches people the worst way to do things without complaining, why would you complain about a good tutorial?

i was showed 3kilks from a friend. i just agreed to use him because i knew nothing of hammer at the time and wanted to learn about it. i never knew that he was going to be crap.

Well, you shouldn’t use his tutorials anymore.

I watched his first video and he tells you to make a giant box with the skybox texture then use the make hollow command :geno: The box was also way bigger than the map.

Exact thing with me.

Lord Ned, get some more videos out! I wanna learn from someone who actually knows what to do in Hammer. :v:

I’m workin, I’m working. These things aren’t easy to produce you know. :shakesfist:

I really like your Swamp map in the video :smiley:
