    Looks nice and customizable.
    We should be seeing this in maps in the future...

    you know what, i gotta be really honest with you. these and the last ones look really rushed and almost untextured compared to your first ones you posted. i think you went a bit over the top with your work speed here.
    they look really flat, colorwise, i think on the first ones you spend much more time on it. it's just a guess, but i get the feeling from the ingame pictures, at least.
    and they look too shiny as well, imo. too much specular, imo.
    i don't think that you need the models to be that customizable. i think the model looks too much puzzled/stick together with the visible model borders. i mean architecture-wise it wouldn't make much sense to do such a piece in 3 different elements. you know, it doesn't really serve the purpose of supporting the geometry. it looks fragile in itself.

    and a last word, i think you should really put all these models in one thread, since it's all the same theme and topic, as well. just to keep it more clearly arranged.

    you know, i really don't want to sound harsh or anything, i just think you should take some extra minutes to finetune this beam-pack so it all keeps up with the high quality of your first "beam-release"

    This is getting me thinking about my alternative BLU scheme. For whatever reason I've been thinking that BLU should emphasize curves compared to RED's sharp angles. This may just be due to the fact that I don't see a tremendous amount of difference between RED's 'angular' look versus BLU's 'orthagonal' look (given that the latter is basically 90ยบ angles anyways). Rounded off concrete buildings with all these I-beams could work out well. Though the displacements might be a file size headache.

    .025 is too specular for you? That's like saying carpet is too shiny for you (btw my carpet is not shiny). Now believe me, I know specular; some think I overuse specular in my maps. If were making models for my map, they'd be specular. Crazy specular. And let me say, if .025 is too much for anyone, just open the .vmt and delete that line.

    I'm sorry you think I rushed through these...I really didn't.

    No one has to use these models...if you don't like them, don't use them. I made these pretty generic and extremely similar to the stock models Valve included. Anyone is free to open the .vtf files and add overlays to the textures...that's part of customization. But trying to do that in reverse is nearly impossible.

    These look fantastic! I'll have to give them a shot sometime.

    Oh, yea, how thick are they? It'd be good to be able to mount the little lights on the inside surface.
