    Ok, this is a follow up to a thread I made earlier. I have managed to get the default props shown, however my custom props didn't show up. Is there a way to make them show up. Just to be clear, everytime I run my map the custom prop just gives me an ERROR sign. I have tried all the prop types and none of them worked.

    Just to clarify: Do the props show up fine in hammer? also are these custom props you've made yourself, or props you have downloaded?
    Just in case when the map loads check that sv_pure is set to 1 as having sv_pure set to 2 can stop custom models being loaded into the map. It would be great if you could post some more detailed information like screenshots or compile logs, thanks

    The props showed up fine on hammer. Someone of them were downloaded and some were made by me. Is there a way to make them spawn without turning on sv_cheats 1?

    They're not showing up for you when you run the map locally? Where are the props installed to?

    I installed it to the tf folder. The compile log said it could not load vertex data.

    This sounds super strange, you say some were downloaded and some were made by you. Are all of them showing up as errors, or just specific ones?

    The ones I downloaded have that problem.

    Edit: I didn't install the downloaded one properly, that means I missed out some files. Sorry for my dumbness.

    Yeah I'm guessing you missed some of the files, no worries.
