    I have two of them for my spawn but only one renders in front of props.
    Both visualisers block enemies but only 1 actually shows the no entry sign in front of props.
    Every time I remake a visualiser, it works but then the older one stops rendering in front of props.
    They are not both 1 entity either.

    Help please. Thanks in advance!

    Are they both separate entities? The fade is calculated off entity's origin I think so if they are both one entity and they're far enough away only one will work, or neither.

    Pretty sure they're different entities as they have different origins and don't both select when selected. I tried copy and pasting some visualisers from a different map (which works) but the problem persisted leading me to think there's a problem with my func_respawnroom(s). There are many of them but seem fine to me?

    Compile the map on normal, build cubemaps and restart game. See how they look after that.

    Did a full compile but I found that the visualiser was only showing when not looking directly at the door. Possible area portal overlap maybe.
    EDIT: The area portal wasn't interfering. Aparently the visualiser only shows when not looking at the prop door??
