    How can I make my own texture. I need a solid tan texture and there isn't one for download anywhere on the site or in the texture browser.

    To make your own texture you will need:

    -An image maker
    -VTFEdit

    Make your texture at a multiple of 256x256 Pixels (To avoid bad scaling).
    Then open it in vtfeedit and then export it into your materials folder.

    The dimensions only have to be a power of 2. If he wants a solid color texture it would be better to use a tiny 16x16 or heck, even a single pixel, to save filesize.

    edit: That said, type test into the filter without any keywords, there are a handful of solid color test images, and I know some where brown/tan shades. Maybe one would work for you.
