you know how there is a grid while 3D modeling? is it OK if the map im modeling does over the end of the grid?

also what in cordinates is the size of an average map? (say, bloodgulch?)

It's perfectly fine if it does go over the edge. Heck, I hide the grid by pressing G so it doesn't distract me. I'm not sure of bloodgulch's size, but you can import it into 3ds max by following directions after downloading this: http://hce.halomaps.org/index.cfm?fid=2029

Use that to convert and import bloodgulch into 3ds max to find out the size. Bloodgulch is bigger than the grid btw. So I think you should just hide the grid and continue with your work. (Hide it with the "G" key)

You want your map way bigger then the grid. The grid is about a wide as Master chief. Merge the tutorial.max file that came with heck and click on master chief. That will give you the side of MC and you can model your map around him.
