    First time using source sdk and hammer.. I'm trying to make a map for me and my friends and so far stuck at spawn for one simple reason : The door one fit between the walls. It's either the walls cover some part of the door either theres half a cube space left and I don't know how to cover it.. Help?

    Yea, you just need to add brushes to fill in the gaps.


    and don't carve.

    if you press the [ and ] keys, the grid size will decrease, allowing you to make finer details.

    Make your grid size smaller, [ or ] on your keyboard, I forget. Then resize your walls to fit your door.
    By the way, what desktop wallpaper are you using? Looks interesting peeking underneath your taskbar.

    Or do the same thing you did with the door, just make a hole in the wall and put glass textured brush in it.

    I'd like to also add that for those whose keyboards don't support very well these [ or ] keycommands, they can use alternative alt+a or alt+s.

    Is there a option to just make a hole in a object without resizing and adding more objects to create a hole?

    Yes, but you don't want to use it. You want to make brushes that form a hole.

    The same way you have bee before. Those blocks you are making, are called brushes.
