    Description

    I took it upon myself to mirror all the cliff walls as I was creating a small section for Nightfall making use of a few of them. The map is mirrored like Pipeline and Ravine and you can't perfectly mirror a lot of models which can cause grief.

    So this is why I made this. To make mirroring easier. :)

    How To Use

    1. Create a brush along the line of symmetry.

    2. From the top-view, select all your cliff wall models, hold down shift, then drag them across.
    3. Flip the models horizontally (CTRL + L) or vertically (CTRL + I) and align the brush you've created so it meets up against the line of symmetry.

    4. Whilst you still have the models selected hit CTRL + SHIFT + R (Replace) and replace .mdl with _mirrored.mdl.

    5. Now you simply have to fix your models rotation which is quite simple. You simply invert each model's angle along the X-axis.

      So for example I would change this...

    Looks like an useful thing, especially for mirrored maps, like plr ;)
