    I've saved overtop of multiple backup copies, when I was cleaning up some of my scanned artwork. I was scanning them in at 600dpi , and on the computer at the time, I had 64 megs of ram - 2/3 of which was in use by the OS and such.. so each pic took almost 10 full mins to scan, then another 10 mins to save. I was saving to multiple locations so I could set up one to burn on cd in psd format, one fullsized jpg, then another at 1000px or so. I'd played around with colouring the one, including running a whole mess of filters that blurred out all the lines.. and then flattened it out and saved overtop of each one and closed out the file. I'd thought I was saving to a new file on each, but noooooo.

    Not only was that hour wasted, but I didn't notice what I'd done until months later, when the scanner was no longer working - so it took almost 4 hours to clean it up.

    yeah, we've all been there a few times.

    [edit] oh, and the new one is coming along nicely! i love the colours...

    Default

    {ot} 3DS Max has a great feature called "increment on save" ... it puts a number on the filename, like MYSCENE 01.MAX, and every time you save, it writes to a NEW file ... MYSCENE 01.MAX ... MYSCENE 03.MAX ...

    It's like unlimited Undo's plus automatic backup. After you accumulate fifty files, you just chuck the oldest thirty or so.

    The only real concern is filesize. With a huge file, you can fill your harddrive quick.

    In fact the blue & green are a little neon for me. I'd suggest desaturating them some.

    Had to reset the colors as somthing screwy happened when I desaturated causing any wight fills to look pink and various other colors to be strange as well. Here is the same map now with mountains (Man I'm gonna have to send RobA a fruit basket or somthing)
