    I Can not find a good looking texture pallet for a map I'm making with the outside ground as "Nature/Blendgroundtograss005" (desert-esque look). Any help? <3

    Well, if its a wooden or brick building, search up "shingles" in the texture browser for some nice roof textures. Make sure you "keyword" is "tf" (you can select it from the drop-down menu), so that you are only looking at textures made for Team Fortress 2, and not textures made for like Half Life 2. Apply this shingles texture to the top of the slope to make it look like a real sloped roof.

    All that shows up are the medieval shingle textures, is that the right one?

    Yup, thats pretty much it. If used correctly, it can look like a good non-medieval roof/building:
