You basically just create a patch-mesh and mold the vertexes in a shape that resembles a curve to that of the corner. Anytime you are dealing with patches you have to seal them off by creating a caulk hull around them so your map doesn't generate leaks.

Alternatively, you could just use the clipper tool and clip away at a brush to somewhat simulate a curve, but it's not as efficient (or time saving) as if you were using patches. Nor would it bring as good of a result either.

You're asking a whole lot of questions, most of which could be answered with a quick Google search. There are still a lot of tutorials on the web which explains 90% of what you're asking.


P.S. I don't want to sound unhelpful. I just meant that there are a lot of resources which do a very good job of explaining things already and it's probably easier just to use Google.

Tutorial button on the left....years ago I did an entire series of tutorials. I've not updated my site for eons, but the downloads for the example maps should still work. I covered everything from your first room, all the way up to more advanced stuff like building a map from models.
