The problem with the stairs is simple.

1. The texture is unsuitable and poorly aligned. Texture the sides first, using alt-right click to instantly align and texture. Then do the 'steps' themselves, the verticals. Then alt-right click the flats.

You also need a better texture.

2. Use smoothing groups.

3. Integrate them into the landscape more. Add rocks, bushes, bring up the displacements along the sides. What about a small ledge along one side of it? Some destruction?

Any ideas for incidental props for this?

I've spent the last few days getting the textures done up and only realised once I got them ingame that that place looks very bare.

Plug sockets for the cleaners and a fire hose.

I would say there are too much colors in this scene (mainly in the last one).
Anway, you could add wallpapers, pictures, pipes, dirt, bins, signs etc. There is much you can add.

the hallways themselves seem to be arbitrary that you could put nothing into them to give them relevance and meaning. they should at least look like they are going somewhere relevant...difficult to explain what I mean, but usually hallways are in the middle of rows of offices or something.

Yeah, I've changed the wall texture in that last pic back to the orange one from the middle screenshot. It looks far better now. I've also considered what you said about the corridors Joe, gonna put some offices in to break up the repetition of the place.

Keypads and other little terminals in various spots wouldn't be a bad idea either. A ventilation system couldn't hurt.

How about model each of the diff panels making the wall more 3d. The geometry seems simple enough in the other places so it wouldn't impact on performance too much.

You could always add some pipes to the scene, pipes work well in any corridor :D
Reminds me of some of the corridors in Mirrors Edge (probably the strong use of base colours), have a look and see what they did to detail

The problem with modeling the panels is that they'd use vertex lighting. It would look ugly compared to lightmapping.

Problem with removing the shadows from the prop properties being the prop now looks fullbright and bland.

Then you probably disabled Self-Shadowing with vertex lighting, you need the other one Disable shadows.

I had the panels modelled originally but like nub said, the lighting looked awful.
