    For a secret project that I am working on currently, I want to have a version of the prop MvM carrier in my map, but made in hammer. I have currently got the 1:1 scaled version of the carrier, and am currently building over the carrier until I am happy with the shape.

    Is there any easier way to do this, as it seems like soon I may have to resort to clipping, with the complicated shape that it is.

    If you want more details, pm me, but I would prefer only a few people knew about it.

    I was thinking, if I just put a large block over the model, couldnt I just carve a carrier shaped hole out of the block?

    I'd ask why you'd want/need to have a brush version of a prop, but since it's a "secret project" I shan't pry. But I think using the prop as a template and building brushes over it really is your best bet.

    Oh, and you can't carve brushes using models.

    I would like a brush version so I can enter inside it. That is all.

    You could just use the prop and stick some clip brushes inside of it.

    Use block bullet if you want it to have solid walls that can't be shot through.

    Excuse me if this is incorrect, but doesn't checking "Use Bounding Box" under "Collisions" make it so that the collisions are fit to the shape of the model?

    Bounding box is the box that surrounds the model when you select it. So an all encompassing box.

    And it is frequently wrong.
