First is there a way to offset or move textures on the surface of a brush to make it fit more, or can you only move the brush itself. And can you enlarge textures or reshape them?

Another question about hammer: How is it that one makes 'floating text' or some kind of floating words. I have seen (on KZ maps for example) boards with pictures on them, and texts. Is this some kind of decal? If so is there a easy way of making my own decals in the form of simple text?

You can apply the textures however you want. Press Shift+A to open the texture window and use the controls.

You can make your own text out of brushes, or make your own textures:

thanks for the neat shift+A trick. And i will just make my own text with brushes thx.

Other question:
When the compiling process runs over a
"Error: Entity 0, Brush 22, Side 1: has a coplanar plane at (-256, -304, -3776), texture WAL24AR"
"Error: brush with coplanar faces"
"Error: Entity 0, Brush 22: outside world(+/-4096): (-10000,-9111,-9111)-(10000,5031,5031)"

Is there a easy way to find and delete "Brush 22" besides going to its coordinates or deleteing all the brushes with that texture"

In other words how can i locate a brush labled with a specific #?

Easier and More important question: How do i make invisible walls. I tried func_wall and invisible = 1 but this does not seem to have worked.

I don't know if you can directly go to numbered brushes.

If you apply the CLIP texture to a brush this will stop players but not bullets or grenades (thank you Superjer answer of the past).

thanks i appreciate your response the clip texture has worked out nicely. As for the finding # brushes this is not a issue but would be nice to know as it would help find problems quicker.

More hammer question....

I'm trying to make a bunny hop kz. Ive looked at func_train and i do not understand this. All i want to do is make the object move under a water brush when a player lands on it, and not only that. How do i also make the water brush water(which i figured out..) but also teleport players when they fall into it? Do i have to make two brushes one water, and one under the water that has the teleport function? please help inform my poor unrefined knowledge.

well im not sure on this but ill try ...

1. make a func_train an set its path to go under you water brush
2. make a trigger_multiple were the player should land , and set its target to the func_train's targetname this will trigger it ( correct me if im wrong )
3. yes you need 2 separate brushes (as far as i know) one being func_water (or just a brush with water texture on it) and the other 1 should be a trigger_teleport ( the teleport brush sould be right in the path of the player ) now you just make an info_teleport_destination give it a targetname and set the trigger_teleport to target it . well i think thats all go and try it

EDIT: sorry if im wrong but im writing this purely by memory so i mite make a mistake
Wtf is that ? its a bird ! no its a plane ! amm maybe its a plastic bag . NO ! its SUPERJER ! the greatest super hero ever!
