    I have been looking for the entity that adds snow to maps on viaduct, coldfront, and snowycoast and I can't seem to find it. How do I create it?

    The entity is called info_particle_system

    The snow particle effect is called env_snow_stormfront_001

    Make sure you check "Start Active" and "Is Weather" both to Yes

    So when i added the snow partial effect. I only saw that it only covered part of the map and not the entire map. I am guessing I have to put the info_particle_system around the map. How many should i put for each part of the map, for example a hallway, the control points, and ect?

    How far does the snow storm effect? For example Control Point A ( the place were the rocket used to be ) Will I have to place two of them to cover the area?
