    I built a simple map with many square rooms. Each room has a light I grabbed from a decompiled Valve map, roughly categorize (light bulbs, spot lights, etc).

    It's just a handy place to grab lighting setups Valve has used, and you can compile it and see it as a quick reference to what lights you might want to use.

    Buster, you should try making into a detailed tutorial.
    drpepper, that would be a great idea, or even a section for tutorial/tips type maps and stuff would be great.

    I also made a map that, I want to make a 'style sheet' for valve maps.


    For example I took different rooms in 2fort, and I made a 'generic room' with two levels and a set of stairs, and each room I made in the style of one of the 2 fort rooms. So I seperated the style from the map, and made a generic example:

    "what kind of lighting does this style use?"
    "What textures do you use for the ceiling?"
    "What kinda of corners/reinforcements do you use?"

    This is such a large project, I only have like 4 rooms done. I need to get my badlands map done so I'll finish it later.

    You could just attach it to a thread in the TF2 Tutorial Forum.

    If you want a new section I'd recommend TF2 Examples and Prefabs.
