    This is the one tool texture that i dont understand, but have seen it be used in Source maps before (cs_assault) and just wanted to know what it does. I have a educated guess, but i shant post incase im really off with the guess :p

    Hopefully someone can shine some light on this if possible :)

    It's completely black in that it isn't illuminated by lighting in your map. (To quote the Source Dev Wiki it is "unaffected by light")

    Oh, and it BLEEDS.

    Strangely relevant.

    Edit: I might add it is sometimes useful as a cordon texture.

    lol i realised the unintended pun after i posted :)

    I thought as much, i did look on VDC, but was searching for toolsblack rather than the actual texture. Thanks for confirming :)
