Rooms can be any shape you like, as long as they can be walkable upon. It can be a circle, or a triangle. Or even the shape of a hotdog!

That is not what he meant. Of course you can make a room whichever shape you want. You just have to be creative about it. One of the advice I always give to new mappers if they don't know anything about complex mapping, is: just add some pipes, vents and cables in a room. It really makes it better. And especially in HL1 where every room is underground and is either a hallway or a storage area.

But a good advice is to take ideas from movies, games, mods and real life. I once designed a whole chapter of my mod after watching the Doom movie (which was ****** but had an interesting level design).

So yes, a single cubic room is not a room. Or at least a well designed one.

What I'm trying to say is that rooms doesn't need to be squares like the rooms of a real life buildings=.
