    This is for everyone that isn't a frequent chatter in the Group Chat and anyone who wants to throw fists about it for long periods of time.

    The Model Browser is broken. Don't click the "World Model" option in any "prop_" entity details. It will crash Hammer.

    Everyone flee to Booj's Prop Library!

    StoneFrog: just for the lulz, whenever I want to exit Hammer, I'll start the model browser


    Hammer crashes much faster than it closes regularly. :)

    I was doing a reinstall of Source SDK when I saw this thread :(
    At least now I know I'm not the only one with this problem

    A really crappy workaround:

    Tools> Options> General

    Uncheck "use vgui model browser"

    In the meantime it looks like the model library has suddenly become vital to mapping.

    has suddenly become vital to mapping. ???

    Suddenly?

    I haven't used the model browser for months. But around the time I dl'ed the prop library there was the scout update. And sometime after that I was unable to ever find ANY models in the browser the few times I have looked.

    The model viewer works fine, but not the in hammer browser. Anyone else have that issue?

    Having read this topic I promptly noted it and continued work in hammer. Sure enough 10 minutes later I completely forgot and hit browse on a model.

    Time to download the prop library. :D

    it's not even funny how valve fails on updates these days... now updates require updates... shame
    arg! I guess it's not a good time for polishing a map... I'll go block something else instead.
    please valve repair this as quickly as possible

    How do you find out how many skins there are for a prop without using the model browser?

    Plus most of the time the prop library is better, but sometimes you just want to do a word search for a particular model. How can you do that without using the model browser?

    Yeah, but you can't look at all the skins for a model using the ABS prop library. It only gives one skin per model.

    You know, you could just *gasp* enter the name of custom models by hand. :p

    Also, after this update all TF2 textures and models failed to show up in Hammer when I launched it this afternoon... :cursing: Then I realized it arbitrarily reset the default game in my SDK Launcher to HL2 EP2.

    Slightly annoying. :glare:

    Time to download that prop library. TBH, until now, I never had a use for such things. Sure the model browser was always a bit buggy, but it worked for my needs. This is just retarded of Valve. :thumbdown:

    well, this update may have doomed the model viewer but I got to say the texture browser feels so much better now! come on people this update isn't all bad at all

    The texture browser changed? It looks the same and is as slow as ever for me. :unsure:

    ahah. actually the texture browser doesn't show texture that can't be applied on brushes anymore. no more model textures n stuff. that removes half of what was in there. quite a clean up if you ask me.

    Wow that totally sucks, I loaded up my map and apparently I was using one of those textures...

    I don't like this up date :/
