    OK - created a stone block, made a func door that rises, and parented a prop dynamic to it.

    Compiled - stone block rises but is black - wtf??:blink:

    The texture is NOT a prop model texture, all shadows have been turned off and receiving shadows disabled on the func_door and the prop dynamic....

    .....still a black bllock!

    Can anyone help here?

    It is driving me round the bloody bend! :cursing:

    Cheers in advance
    Nosher.

    ...maybe the origin of the prop and the origin of the func_door are exactly the same?


    Also,

    I use nodraw for func_door that have props parented to them, try changing the stone to nodraw.

    A func_door that raises... it raises open or it raises to shut off a path ? If it's the later, you wouldn't have created it inside the ground, thus preventing from being lit, would you ?

    I don't know what the "dubious workaround" is, but isn't the correct solution to create an "info_target" entity at the position where the prop will be when it's visible, then set the "lightingorigin" keyvalue of the prop to the name of the info_target?

    The easiest way is just put the door in it's closed position with "spawn open" under the key valveus. Then compile so it's properly lit.
