    I vote Terrain Brush. I only use tess cubes when i want to severly misshape the cube into something wack so i don't get the creapy looking endless hallway effect (usually only seen the very largest of cubes) or other bsp issues.

    In this UT Single Player pack, all terrain was constructed by carving tesselated cubes out of a terrain brush.

    It's a project that I was working on, which I dropped and released as an unfinished pack about a month ago. Check it out if you want to see what I did.

    And yes I am p1mping it, because so far it's been downloaded all of 3 times (gah).

    with spoogers plugin getting frontpage exposure on PU I predict a shitload of n00bs rushing out to warez Max, opening it, panicking at the sight of all those buttons and promptly deleting it :p

    p.s. the nannylock is getting old real fast.. I know it's necessary to keep the pre-schoolers & shoulder biters who inhabit the BUF forums in order but do we really need it @ the NCBBS?

    Annoying, but it works

    I voted for "Other", cause I use TerraEdit as well as 3DSMax. Both have their benefits, and yeo, 3DSMax is pretty confusing first... but you can't really make complex terrain with the terrain brush.

    well, I warezed max got shocked and did not delet it. I did it to extrude a shape out of an cube. i created cubes, spheres, teapot and manipulated the meshes(yes, I even found out how)...
    but now I am lsot no clue how to go further.... : /
    maybe if anybody knows a VERY VERY GOOD and easy STEP-BY step tutorial than feel free to post it in here...

    btw, i messed with terrain-ed and crashed my pc. that was about the timne i stoped using it. so if i do terrain I would use the terain cube... might try terrain ed again....

    that looks very messy

    also you need to be very careful about how your edges will light in the game


    balton it's 120 polys/frame

    not exactly next gen :)
