Help with starting to learn to map
#11
You don't want to use booleans in any editors ever lol, it's just not optimized at all,. avoid concave single piece shapes, collision doesn't like concave shapes.
It just causes one bad problem after another.

You can use booleans sparingly, just don't use them alot on the same shape.
using carve on a single piece should not cause problems, if you use it again and again on the same piece it probably will

Do not attempt to use carve at all unless you plan on not optimising your map... I recommend trying to do as much manual shaping as possible to start. There is a mapper called 3Kliksphilip on YouTube who did some good tutorials for starters.
