You can use CSG subtract to subtract a selected brush from the floor brush, but it is usually not recommended to use CSG subtract. It is better to form a hole out of 4 brushes and use mitering techniques to avoid T-junctions. Here are some decent beginning tutorials that apply to SOF2 as well...

Basically, the connecting rooms technique is the same u can use to connect floors using ladders. There is no need to make holes. As Tweedle pointed out, CSG is not reccomended because it can generate a lot of little brushes and in general it is hard to controll CSG behavior. The best thing u can do about is to build up by ourself the floor of the room using 2 or more brushes, keeping a void space where the ladder 'll be placed :nodding:

you could all so use the clipper tool to make a hole or door frame but it can take awhile. But very useful:cheers:
