    I'm making a map based on the elimination bumper kart minigame, and everything is working fine. However, after somebody dies and turns into a ghost, the ghost appears invisible. They can still boo when they left click and the fly as normal, only their appearance is broken.

    (Also, the ghost can't be revived when touching a teammate, which is okay in my map, but I'd still like to know why that is)

    (also dead players don't ragdoll and instead stand straight up and despawn after a few seconds)

    Here is the VMF.

    If anybody knows a solution, I will be super happy!

    It's likely due to the ghost model not being precached. Are you using the Halloween event entities to activate the minigames or are you doing it through other means?

    I'm using a prefab that was created by the user Tombolisu. It has other models precached like the cage and carts- should simply adding another model for the ghosts fix it or will I have to do something with logic?

    I'd try adding the model first and seeing if that works.

    Will do! Trying it now.

    EDIT: It absolutely worked! Thank you very much. I used models ghost_no_hat and ghost_no_hat_red and everything went perfectly.
