    I know this is the n00bish of n00b questions... but, I want to create a cube that glows - so it can be seen from a distance. Maybe something with a nice outer glow/sheen as well as the box itself being illuminated.

    How would I accomplish this? env_sprite? Either way, please explain.

    You have a couple options. The first is to simply add lights, env_glow, env_sprite etc. Put them around the box and see how it looks. The second is to transform the cube into a func_brush. This will allow you to adjust color and rendering effects.

    Could you not also make it a func_detail and place a really glowy light inside of it?
