    hey guys, im new, i found the creating a spawn room tute VERY helpful (thank you) and and starting out with a very cimple CTF style map, but would like to add custom buildings, such as, shacks, some fencing, etc... how is this stuff added/created? is there a fence already available in hammer or has everyone just been modelling their own fences and buildings (in seperate 3d program) and importing them in Hammer? i know Maya fairly well but am wondering about this.

    thanks guys for help :)

    Use the "create entity" tool in Hammer, this should create an info_player_teamspawn. Place it somewhere. Double-click it once it's created (or select it and press alt+enter) to bring up the property box. In the "class" field (top of this property box), you can see info_player_teamspawn. Type prop_static instead. Hit the "apply" button. New properties should appear. Find the "world model" line, double-click it, and make your choice.

    You seem sincere enough that I don't think you're a troll ;) Read this; http://developer.valvesoftware.com/wiki/Basic_Construction and familiarize yourself with the various tools. Making buildings, fences, etc. is remarkably easy once you get the hang of it. But you have to be willing to take the time needed to read and practice.
