Thank you. The texture is mine, I'm trying to recreate as many textures as I can for the mod.

Oh, Good Work! You also made the ceiling tiles? (BTW are the (each)ceiling tile separate brushes? Or has Source somehow learnt to uses POMs)

Thanks, but it's still being changed, and polished, and what-not. Also, no, the ceiling tile is Valve's. It's placeholder, as I'll WILL be making my own. I intend to use minimal Valve textures, and yeah, each tile is a separate brush (unfortunately...). What's this POM you speak of? That imediately sparked my interest, if not for Source, for the sake of knowledge.

Oh, Source used to use POMs but then Valve updated then it no longer worked.

"each tile is a separate brush (unfortunately...)"

WHOA! that will be an outrageously significant performance drain. Unless you make them detail_brushes. But still you will notice some performance loss, especially on lower-end machines.

Oh and POM is Parallax Occlusion Mapping (incase you didnt already know)

Besides that, Ill just state that I love the idea behind the mod and would be glad to help in anyways possible (I map for Source)

Yeah, and it jumps up compile time so much. I'm trying to find a work around that looks as good, but that's failed me.

Ehn, I've already someone in line for mapping, and it's such a small project that I doubt I'll need more than two. Buuuuut, if you have even the slightest bit of modeling skill, or almost anything else, even simple suggestions, I'd be glad to have your help.

You could make a model of a series of ceiling tiles. Then SMACK them in your map. Beats using brushes any day of the week.
Besides making a bunch of ceiling tiles shouldn't be that tough.

That would work. I'd just have to take some time to learn a bit of 3ds or something similar.

Blender is also good. Its free and on par with 3ds. Abeit it has a little steeper learning curve.

Hm... Well, I already have 3ds. I suppose I'll use whichever one is simpler for me, thanks.

I remember that place, although even in my dreams because that seems to be an electronic place. Is not it?

Thanks, I've been using Propper for a couple weeks now, actually. Really useful tool.
