Will using only 1/4 of a BSP cylinder cause issues?
I am recreating a swimming pool. And I am making some stairs. I though making them out of cylinders would work. However, I am wondering if there is a problem in making a cylinder and only using 1/4 by just placing it like the picture, or if I should cut out the part's I don't need from it. And if so, how do I cut down the brush so I only keep a quarter of it.
There is nothing wrong with using the cylinder the way you are. If you would like to 'cut' the extra off, you could always do that with a couple of BSP boxes that are using Subtractive geometry instead of Additive.
However, I wouldn't worry about it to much because BSP are made for blocking out a level (a placeholder) and should be swapped out for imported models before the game is finished. This is because BSP's are performance heavy. If you have a finished game with any BSP's geometry you are going to notice a major loss in FPS.
