    I'm in need of a sign in the style of the default "Control Point," "Battlements," etc. wall signs (the large ones without the arrow). I need it to say something like "Ventilation: ON" (Actually, "airflow" would probably be better than "ventilation"), with a skin for on and off, preferably with the ON skin on a green background and the OFF skin with a gray background.

    What it's for, is that I'm using the ventilation system in my map as a sort of side-shortcut. So, by default the "airflow" is on and forces players through in only one direction, but once the corresponding point is captured, the "airflow" turns off, allowing the pushing team to go through this now-open side path. While players could easily find out whether they can travel through or not by walking up to the open duct, I would much prefer an indication that is noticeable from farther away (it's also more intuitive). Unfortunately, I have no idea how to do this myself, and since this is the only custom thing I need, I'm hoping that someone in the community is wiling to do this for me.;)

    Omg I would totally do this for you, but I can't access my desktop until this weekend! Oh well... If someone doesn't do it, I will do it this weekend. Shouldn't take long at all.

    Sweet! I'd prefer to have it in time for this Friday's gameday since I'm almost done with the other changes, but this weekend is fine. Actually, since I wouldn't be spending any of the following week making new improvements, that would give me more time to focus on class and work.:bored:

    The model I was talking about is sign_gameplay01.mdl -- one of the several with the Red/Blue skins saying "CONTROL POINT," "RESUPPLY," etc. So basically I guess I'm just asking for a re-skin of that.

    I'd like one saying "AIRFLOW: ON" and another saying "AIRFLOW: OFF" (not "Ventilation" like in the original request). I'm not sure which background color would be better for which sign, so a green and a gray version for both would be great.

    I finished! Here is a screenshot of what I have. I went with red instead of gray, but if you want me to change it, it's an easy fix. I'll probably upload it tomorrow or so.

    That looks great, thanks!:thumbup1: The reason I didn't go with red in the first place is because of the Red team, and I don't want it to blend in too much like just another sign. I do like the ruddy coloring that still differentiates it from the other signs, but it's also kind of similar to the texture I'm using for the Red cave walls. I'd prefer gray, or maybe yellow if that would help with visibility of the letters, in order to make it stick out a little more.

    Also, would it be possible to get both signs with both backgrounds? While canonically it makes sense for the ON sign to be green, signifying everything is okay, I'm worried players might interpret green as "go" like a stoplight, so I'd like to be able to switch it if that does end up being an issue. It probably won't but it's good to be prepared. If you don't feel like it, that's fine and they can just get used to it if it is a problem.

    My pleasure. Edit will fix the bump map (it probably needs 2 now that I think of it) this weekend.
