    Hi I was wondering if someone here could help me in a quest I'm on at the moment. It's pretty straightforward I think but I have no idea if such things already exist. Basically I'm looking to get high res images of an overhead view of each of the original maps in TF2. I want to be able to print them off to assist in strategy planning and training which is why they need to be pretty high res. I think for now it's just going to be the control point maps but it may extend to more of them if it works out well.

    Anyone have any suggestions or links?

    Unless I'm missing something, can't you just noclip to whatever height you want and take the pics? Whether or not they are high quality depends on your computer. If you fly up high enough and look down, you'll see the whole map with major paths and obstructions, but no details. Hope this helps :)

    Ah, but theres more to it then that. When you view it that way, its perspective instead of a straight view. Source has some nice commands, and there is a nice tutorial on how to use them.
