    Hello, I'm new to Hammer, but I'm figuring most of it out for myself. However, their are still a few things I can't get quite get:

    1) For creating buildings, I'm guessing that I have to make them manually, and that there aren't any already made ones available. So how can I make my wall brushes triangular at the top so that they are attached to the roof? Is there a screenshot directory where I can see how Valve made there buildings?

    2) How do I only select one surface of a brush to apply texture to. At the moment, I can only select the entire brush.

    I had something else, but I can't remember. If you can help me with my simple problems, it's much appreciated.

    Thank you, Shadowfield.

    1) the clipping tool. Its down the left hand side
    2) open the texture application window and THEN click the face you want.

    Great. Thanks Youme!

    I remembered what I forgot. To rotate a brush, is there an alternative to using the rotation handles, where I can enter a numerical value?
