I downloaded community made props for the map to add more variety. I asked a friend if she could upload the map to her server...

    How can I make a func_rotating behave like this?

    Hi, I'm working on a pretty sizeable hammer project and have run into a problem; I need a func_rotating to behave like in the attached demonstration but I can't get it to work, I know I could maybe use logic relays to make it switch but that would require a button and I'd like the movement to be...

    Skins for a model doesn't work

    I've been working on a model for the 72hr jam. It's a cereal box with 2 bodygroups and 2 skins. The issue is that the second skin doesn't work. It only shows the red skin, has the option to change the skin, but when changing to the blue skin, it doesn't work. Only red skin shows up, even with...

    Issues compiling

    I had recently made some big changes in one of my Maps that I was working on, and I saved and compiled it. However, when I loaded into the map, it retained its previous state. I tried saving it separately and compiling it again but it just said that it couldn't find the new saved version of the...

    Map Compiling Problems

    So I recently started working on pkmn_sootopoliscity_a1 (which I mentioned in another thread) but I soon noticed I was having trouble compiling the map to test in Hammer.

    How do you include custom textures within your maps?

    Hi there. I've been working on a map ( and apparently someone has mentioned that resources I've used from the Frontline pack are missing during play. Is it possible that I can include the textures in somehow? Thanks.

    Displacements refuse to sew

    It seems I can almost never get any displacements I touch to sew. The command might as well be magic to me. Even worse, at the moment I'm in a tight spot. I've got this panel on my zeppelin that refuses to join with its neighbors. If it can't be joined, I might as well just delete most of the...

    Water Lighting Issue / Solid Water at Certain Angles

    Hello TF2Maps community! My friend noticed a weird lighting problem with some water and was wondering if it was only on his end / the build he made. I decided to take a look at the build he sent me previously, and this is what is seen from both sides. If anyone can help figure out what is...

I was gonna...

    Issue with Ambient Generic

    I'm having this problem with an ambient_generic in my map. Whenever it plays its sound, it plays it at even volume throughout the entire map despite what I set the Max Audible Distance is set to. I checked the flags, and Play Everywhere is NOT checked. What's going on here?

    Sorry in advance for the link to pictures instead of site images. I'm trying to make a door prefab to copy all kinds of doors to other maps. While the RED respawn door here works just fine, there is a problem with seeing the respawn room visualizer. I created it via the Texture Application...
