    I've been looking around at a lot of winter maps here and some have Christmas themes but I don't see a central posting spot for Christams stuff

    I.e.

    Cool looking wire lights, decorated trees, presents, replace ammo/health packs with custom models, etc.

    I'd really like to learn how to make some of these things - ie the lights and how to decorate a tree but have no idea where to start and don't think it's really kosher just to rip them out of otehr people's maps.

    Anyone have any cool links you'd want to insert here as a central resource?

    Christmas tree tip: don't use the pre-existing pine-tree models, they look terrible from below

    What you could do is make a custom skin pack to go with maps.

    This is coming from some guessing, so bare with me;

    Change the rope texture to lights, so rope is now lights.


    That would get some maps festive.


    You can learn basic Blender modeling and then just go through the long and painstaking process of exporting it as a .mdl model. That would be your only option if you didn't want to rip or couldn't find other models.

    someone made Christmas vision goggles in the workshop, it's not that great but it's a noble idea yeah. It came with health replacement models I think.
