    Guys I know this is for Left 4 Dead but I think most of the mappers here are skilled enough to transfer the same ideas to TF2. I hope this is useful, because it seems like this could be revolutionary for creating realistic architecture and other materials.

    Also the introductory pages to mapping in Source are very well written.

    Also, it sort of mentions how you can use Sketch Up to put things in your map, but I would think that importing models would be more practical from another software.

    While this does have to do with map making, it does not have to do with TF2. Moving to Off-topic.

    We do also have http://l4dmaps.net/ you should post it over there as well =)

    Sketchup is almost as bad as hammer as far as creating geometry goes :\

    Why would you build something like that in sketchup? :/ It works way better in hammer. Dar!
