    Hello tf2 mappers!
    I'm new to this website and I'm not sure I posted this thread in the right place...
    But anyway I would like you to tell me:
    1) How to make a sawblade like the ones on sawmill.
    2) How do the "measure" textures help me when I build a map?
    It would be very nice if you'll answer if you know!

    welcome, you posted in the right thread.
    1) ehh, I guess you are just new to hammer, so explaining it could take a while. do you alreade have the ultimate resource pack? there is a prefab in there.
    2)the measure textures or "dev textures" are just placeholders, you use them when you havent decided what texture to use.

    Thank you very much for the help!
    I think I could continue working on my own now...

    Copy the saw from, don't try build it yourself.

    The measure textures help you get an idea of how big your level is compared to the player.
