Easy Texture Alignment - A Tutorial for Counter-Strike 1.6

Just a short tutorial to help you line your textures up, faster than manually adjusting X and Y coordinates.

This is a simple guide to help line up your textures without manually adjusting X and Y coordinates. This will help you line up textures on many different brushes easily.

Let's start with two simple brushes that meet in a corner.

As you can see, on the two inner faces the texture isn't lined up. So, to line them up simply click on the face on the left brush, and hold alt while right clicking on the brush adjacent to the left brush.

Voila! Your brushes are now perfectly aligned. This can come in handy when you have many different brushes and angles of faces. For example's sake:

You click on the highlighted brush in the image, and follow the same steps listed above to get the following result:

This can be repeated until you finally get the resulting image:

You have created several brushes with perfectly aligned textures in a matter of seconds! A relatively simple tutorial indeed, for something that isn't common knowledge and can prove to be a time saver. Enjoy!
