    I have seen a few post about this topic but no one ever gives a definitive answer. What are the dimensions of all the koth maps? Corridors, courtyard, and sight lines? Please help me out so I can finish my first koth map with some confidence that I wasn't a total idiot.

    There aren't really set dimensions for a King of the Hill map, they're all different. The best way to figure out scale is just to make a lot of maps. Placing some spawn info_player_teamspawn entities should help with the height of things. This article by grazr is still fantastic, and I'd highly recommend checking that out.

    If you'd like to see the size of Valve maps, download some decompiled versions here. They're an excellent resource and probably the best way to figure out the exact dimensions.

    Thanks for the help, I will definitely try out the decompiled maps and the image was very helpful.
