Give it some time buddy...Eventually you'll be inspired again and It'll take you half the time to get to the same point again...Losing stuff sucks, but we must PREVAIL!

or you could use Maya :D

I gotta knock the wood, I don't get much issues with Max. But yea as said you should use incremental save and auto back up. Those have saved my arse many times ;)

Great start! I hope you don't mind me commenting, but I used to know a bit about '69 Chargers! First thing I notice is that the roof profile needs to be more rounded, especially over the rear window where it should be more curved. Overall shape and proportions of the body are ok though, looks good so far.

I know u will not believe me but this morning after 2.5 hours of work we had a blackdown (electricity went off) :(
so once agene i need to repeat my work

now i have a question how do i activate autosave ??? pls answer i know this is not the spot to ask but still ;)
 
#18
customize > preferences > Files tab : at the bottom left corner autosave section
with number of files
interval of saving
and name options

btw should be on by default, try searching for autobackup folder
i have it for example in My Documents > 3ds Max > autobackup
