    Hello
    I have a question about textures and wall size.
    I am building a room (the spawn room) and it is going to be seen only from inside and the front. What textures should I use on the bottom and the sides which will never be seen? Also does it save render time if I use relatively thin walls (on the places where I can afford that).
    That's for now. Thanks in advance!

    Use "tools/toolsnodraw" on faces that are not visible

    Thanks for that. I was actually using it but wasn't sure if it was correct.

    I just noticed your post count: welcome to the forum! - if you have any other small questions to ask you can just pop into the chat and you can just ask there. :)

    The thickness of the walls does not affect their render time, and if they're nodraw, they're not rendered anyway :)

    Thanks for the info :)
    Also I just realised that I have a "limited steam account" and I can't use the chat. I am using this acc with only free TF on my laptop so I can make maps while my brother can play on my main acc with all the games >.<
