I am just making a suggestion to all mappers

when you make stairs in your maps you know that annoying bumping motion when you walk on them? this is a good way to fix it.

put a diagonal brush with the line of the stairs- make sure it is right against the points of each stem and make it a clip brush. now in game it will look like you are walking up the stairs but really it's a ramp. Also because it's a clip brush shots and such hit the stairs and mark.

just something to think about.

Allow me to explain the mapping world to you. Moron in misc. clan sees cool maps. Moron wants to be famous mapper and makes clan maps after reading a few basic tutorials and assumes that he knows everything. Moron doesn't know about caulk, clip brushes, hint brushes, areaportals, or anything else. Moron release bad map to clan and they encourage moron to release it worldwide. Moron gives it a cool name and sees the high dowload count, thinking that it is the map and not the name that is cool, and makes more bad maps, making it seem like clip brushes on stairs are uncommon. Catch my drift?

You forgot about the people that made "The Clock Tower" and such. they just make stair brushes half the height of the player. O.o
