    I dont have many to contribute but I think it would be useful given the limited amount of textures with TF2.

    My map gets criticism for using HL2 textures but I dont have the skills to get the TF2 style in Photoshop....

    So maybe a library area where we can share quality textures/models?

    I'll certainly upload any custom textures I make, however I get the feeling that most people here are more mappers than texturers (is that word?) so that probably explains the lack of them.

    From what I have heard it seems quite difficult to get an authentic TF2 feel with the textures, maybe people should just start off modifying the existing stuff to add some variety.

    I endevour to make as many textures for my maps as posible but due to time restrictions I'm mainly tweaking the officials, which is fine for me, like I've made a whole new load of doors.
    there are only 3 usable tf2 door textures (the 4th is a model texture, the git) so I extracted all 4 and changed the model texture to a normal texture and made a blu version I made two more of the metal door as well as a whole series of office doors. I won't be releasing them untill after cp_bloodstained is finalised.
