    Unfortunatly I really need a tan colored sand texture that looks decent. The only ones in the defaults are 'sandfloor010a' (blackish color), 'ground_06' (pinkish), and 'dirtground001' (good color, but grainy).

    This is definatly when I miss the ease of textures with HL1. get an texture of the net, put it in a wad, incorporate it into the bsp on compile.

    Anyone out there have one or know of a good tutorial on how to make them for HL2?

    Well, i ripped the 'nature/sandfloor010a' out of the HL2 folder. Converted it to greyscale with Irfranview, opened it with Wally (for those that remember it) and modified the color pallete a few times to see what I could get out of it. Overall, there are 6 tanish colored variations.

    Enjoy.

    Try Photoshop

    It's very easy to change a color of an image with PS :)

    I'm making a tropical map with a beach and the TF2 ground texture looks very well. Here's a pic:

    i was going for a desert feel. so it needed to be a little 'sun bleached'. also, because there was so much of that texture, the grainyness really got harsh. Plus i found that it was too colorful for what I was going for.

    and, thats a very pretty map your making there.
