    Concrete? Metal?
    If RED has bricks in one area, what BLU should have in its area?

    I think BLU has a large white-ish brick. I believe it's under concrete/concretewall002. That's what I always used for BLU walls. There's also concrete/concretewall004 which is VERY blue.

    Just the same answere as always:
    Take a look into valve maps.

    For example on well:
    Red - bricks, bricks and ... bricks:

    Blue - blue metal and light blue/white concrete

    Or how about freight (also if it's not a valve map):
    Red:

    Blue (bad photo):

    There are many more maps, like granary and stell (non-valve).
    You can take a look at those your self, good luck.

    Take a look at PL_Waste, also. Pretty good map for blu/red differences with the brick/metal

    Yeah, I did in fact looked at them, but I was still in doubt.
    As a fun-fact, the mid/point of Ethanol is going to be styled after Gorge, but the RED area is made of bricks.
    I was in doubt in "Bricks make sense in an ethanol refinery, but what fits both BLU and an ethanol refinery?"
    Metal.

    In my case, i was making red buildings made of bricks + other red wood buildings, then neutral brick building ( the white ones) and then i expected to make blu buildings made of metal, and, blue equivalent of bricks :( so any equivalent of those bricks that is not the white bricks?

    Both shades of cinderblock walls make sense to me. It doesn't have to be an exact equivalent; the less the opposing bases look like palette swaps of each other, the better, which is why I always get annoyed when people make textures like the cinderblocks with a red stripe along the bottom or blue wood. I've been playing around with Turbine2 to try to make the bases less identical lately for that very reason.

    I would have said this also. Blue breeze blocks = red bricks.

    It will look kind of strange, as BLU concrete walls (like red bricks then) are also white. But ok. You'll tell me how does it look later.

    I don't know what you mean by "also" white; I'm talking about these textures:

    Neither of which looks particularly white to me.

    concretewall002 seems so white to me (the first). But concretewall013 is ok. I really hate hammer thumbs, and how it's nto the same on hammer than while playing the game. Thx :)

    It depends on your lighting. A number of maps have the sun facing the front of RED's base, so that BLU's is always in a bluish shadow. If your map has two bases facing opposite directions and you're using this texture for the exterior, you can do the same.
