    You open the .vmf, find the map you want to get the enviromental lighting from, copy/paste the 5-6 entites there (not the sound or the particles). Then you find out what the skybox texture name is (its in the comments of the env_sun... choose "solids" from the selection bar on the right) and add that to the "map properties" which is like under the map dropdown menu.

    place the tf folder in steamapps/teamfortress so that it merges with the existing tf folder... and you can place the vmf anywhere you'd like.

    This resource is missing. Can we get this re-uploaded somewhere?

    Copy the tf folder in the download

    Go to C:/ProgramFiles/Steam/SteamApps/common/Team Fortress 2

    Put the tf folder in there, it will ask to Merge folders, say yes.

    Then, open hammer and open the aaa_environmentGallery_1.8.vmf folder. Find the map that has the environment you want, and copy all the entities there and past them into the map. Change the skybox under Map > Map Properties. You can find that environments skybox by object-selecting the env_sun.

    This is going to be a bump and a half, but could somebody update this with the newer maps? This is ungodly levels of useful!

    I've actually been thinking about this a bit myself recently. I've got bspsource and the technical know-how, so I might be able to update it myself. There are also a few changes I'd make to the original, as I think some things could be improved. I'm not making any promises, but, well, this might be a thing I'll do soon (Valve Time (/joke))
