Here is a (very) little something I've been working on (for 10 minutes).

I needed an overlay to tell players that a ramp in my map was a little low, and they may hit it.

I just followed Nineaxis' tutorial for creating and importing overlays:

Thought someone may want the the result or may have some improvements to suggest.

/EDIT: I am now creating some more (the one with the head is the original and still available for download) and renaming the original for later packs. When the new packs are released, please delete the original and download the new pack.

I like it! There is already a stock sign for this purpose though.

No there isn't... But it looks familiar because I edited a stock file :P Lame I know but I'm going to make some more I think.

You're probably thinking of "Watch your step".

The first one reminds me a bit too much of the construction workers poster, and the last one is a little...err...cheap? :/ You just put white text on an existing overlay.

I like the second one, though. I'd use it. :)

OK, I've made the bottom one a bit better, I've made the Writing, beveled. give it a more 3d sign effect.

Oh it's 'watch your step' May bad, it's just that it's used on a low ceiling thing in Steel. D: Silly brain.

It's also used for low ceilings/stairs in Dustbowl and other VALVe maps.
