    what are good units to use for spawn rooms and things does it matter?
    Also can someone link me up to a good guide on how to do cube maps correctly.
    Thanks everyone

    Cube maps are simple:

    As for the spawn room... Its all depends on the style of the map. Just keep height reasonably high >160ish

    In your SDK_content folder, check your tf/maps directory and there should be maps starting with sdk_ (sdk_ctf_2fort for example). These are pre-compiled versions of official TF2 valve maps. You can reference these for sizes and structure techniques etc.
