    I'm trying to implement some custom textures for my map. I know from experience that these custom textures will appear as missing texture for a player other than myself. My question is; how do I make it so that my custom textures become visible for others than myself? Do I have to make them download the custom textures, and if so, how do I do that, other than putting a link for them to download the textures alone? Any help would be appriciated.

    You have to pack any custom content into your bsp file using a tool such as Bspzip or VIDE. You can look up tutorials for them online.

    The preferred method is embedding the custom content into the bsp itself, since that eliminates the need to distribute extra files with your map. CompilePal and VIDE are the go-to tools these days.
