    Hello everyone! I recently spent 3 days trying to correctly compile a model that won't appear textured in game but is in hammer and the HL2 model viewer. It uses a renamed stock Tf2 texture. Might that be why it doesn't show? Do I need to create a new one?

    Did you use the correct prop type? I believe you need an extra line in your QC file if you want props to work as a prop_static, without it the prop can only be prop_dynamic (and prop_physics, not too sure about it though) so will fail to appear ingame.

    I tried changing the prop type, but it did nothing. You can see in the pictures that it shows up perfectly fine and also that it is animating quite well. I can't upload to screenshot, but it is completely transparent in TF2.
