    I would like to remind everyone that as a rule, eating people is bad. That goes doubly so for the people working at Valve. If you really need to satisfy a craving for hearts/brains, go munch on some EA executives ;) Those are some pretty cool screens though. It may be early development, but those could easily qualify as beta, lol.

    Very cool!

    And just reading over the interview, it's nice to know that the process we do here is very similar to what the guys over at Valve are doing. That's very cool!

    I'm a new mapper, and I haven't been able to find those grid textures ( on badwater) they are using, or that blu one for the goldrush castle.

    I've only managed to find orange grid paterns and 2 gray ones under the dev keyword. Where can I find/ What are the red, blu, and white grid pattern textures called?


    They also had a demoman and a heavy standing around the map. How would you do this, seeing as this would be great for size reference.

    the grid from badwater is a reflectivity test texture, I think hes using '30' (they come in incremental steps from 10 to 100) if you filter "dev" in the filter field and scroll down you should find them, make sure you havent got the keyword "tf" on otherwise you wont find them, I think the blue from the goldrush ones is just a normal tf2 texture, if not I cant say what it is.

    The demoman, sniper and heavy is a prop_dynamic (or static or whatever you want to use, I use dynamic cuz it looks sexy in-game.)
    With the model set to the player/heavy.mdl

    No, goldrush was ctf like dustbowl in TFC, you'd grab a flag and take it to the cp to capture it.
