This is a 180 degree spiral pilar.

Its made with a 16*16*16* cube brush, devided into 6 triangles, using the CLIP tool. To show you how i made this, here's a video walkthrough:

In addition, i've turned each brush of the pilar into a individual func_wall, (not seen in video) to prevent brush splitting.

We all get a peak in to the mapping mind of Muzzie by watching the video!!

What did you use to record? How many takes? :P Very cool Method BTW, and thanks for the VIDEO!

It took me many many takes, with different settings, like full frames uncompressed avi, indeo video codec, WMP codec and all that stuff. And everytime the file size was over 4 gigs for just 2.30 minutes of recording! Its a pain in the butt to compress a file that big! So it took me many takes to get an acceptable filesize.

I used Camtasia Studio 3 for recording, and XVid for compression, id rather choose Divx, but that didn't work.

"isn't it funny how they are the same name backwards?": not really. It's just one of the variety of silly ways NIX-y folk name stuff.

XviD is better, anyway.
