    I'm trapped on a computer that doesn't have steam, but I want to map, so I'm laying out brushes in an old version of hammer with half-life textures I found on gamebannana and no fdg file. I have no idea how big or small my map is right now.

    Thanks for the quick reply.
    Amazingly, the brush cylinder I made for the point was 256x256, so I guess i'm all good.

    256x256 is the smallest you can get before your capzone is too small. Ideally it'd be somewhere within the 384x384 to 512x512 range

    The capzone is going to be larger than the point, I just needed to get the size of the point correct before I could size up the rest of the map correctly.

    Out of curiosity- how did you get Hammer on that computer?
    I know Hammer can run without running steam, but it's part of source games, which you download off of steam. All it's tools and content and stuff is in the steam folder in program files
