Pretty sweet. I've tried to constuct a bended piple like this in the past, but I could never get it to work without "leaf-saw" and brush errors. Your's is clean and error free! bravo! = )

Note: the outer rim of the bended part is neat because you can run up and down like a skateboard on the smooth surface. The inside bend however you get stuck at the seams. I tried using the bevel texture on the seams of your pipe to fix this, but it didn't work. If there was a way to fix the "stuck" points on the inside bend it would be neat!

Sometimes, It's just the Engine's Fault.
Thanks for the review.

Agreed, but this might help to which I just found/remembered, which I'm going to try in some of my maps with "sticky" edges.

it's the "-cliptype precise" switch for CSG.

Downside is it adds clipnodes, which maps like this usually have a lot of them already. Anyway, just a thought! = )
