    I'm working on my first tf2 map, and I have a room in which I need to limit the area in which engineers can build, I'm just not sure how. Does anyone know how to do this?

    make a brush out at trigger and then tie it to a func_nobuild

    EDIT: I fail at multitasking >.>

    lol, I haven't done either, its my first map. I made a box brush, went to the texture editor, and applied a trigger texture to it, am I doing it right so far?
