Have you attempted scaling up about 2x to give you more wiggle room then scalding back down when it's done?

Yes did not work.

I did figure it out though I had to come at it from the sides can build from the middle out

Now however I am having a problem  getting the sides to mesh lol

Ech. If you've ever seen my ships on the WS you would know that I've gone through similar issues, I would offer help building it, seeing as a hands on approach is alot better when it comes to tricky builds like this, but I surmise you want to do it yourself.

I have spent hours on this thing and every time I fell like I just have to delete it all and start over.

The thing is every time its almost the exact same problem just in a different area

I figured out the problem always revolves around connecting two slops of veering height.


is there a way to seamlessly and smoothly connect two slops of different height ?

That should be doable with the edge blocks, it will just be alot of them since a majority will be microblocks

You can definitely get it better, turn scale step to .5  and turn on no snap, combine that with the block stat UI and you can get it looking ace in no time
