    Hi,

    I'm fairly new to mapping, and I was wondering if there's a list somewhere of the standard sizes used for stuff like doorways, walls, etc. I've made a couple of quick maps as tests but I don't know how big to make anything. Is there a way I could find out - like I said, a list of standards or something?

    After that if you're still not sure you can place a prop in your level (like a sentry gun or something). If you have [ame="http://forums.tf2maps.net/showthread.php?t=4674"]ABS's improved FGD[/ame] the info_player_teamspawn entity uses an engineer model (which I think is accurate to size).

    UziMonkey's link will prove to be incredibly helpful though. I'd recommend checking that first whenever you're not sure.

    In addition, you can just use door props for scaling too.
