    I've been having a strange issue with custom props, I packed them in using pakrat, and when the map compiled everyone on the server saw the props, but they had broken textures.

    I tried again using vide but had the same issue.

    Any help would mean a lot right now!

    Sounds like you didn't pack the model textures. You have to pack both the models and the textures for the models. I also recommend VIDE.

    So I used VIDE and added the textures in from the materials/models folder but the props still show up with no textures for everyone, I don't know what is happening that's causing this

    Don't forget the materials either, they may be small and easily copy pasted, but they are critical.

    Silly question but just to be sure: are you also packing the vmt files?
