    I'm fairly certain the Hydro dam is a prop. fillter 'tf' in the entity drop-down menu, then look for the props/hydro folder.

    Just so you know, its a skybox prop (skybox is scaled to 16 times what you build in hammer), so when you just put it in your map it'll about the size of a heavy (hmmm, heavy in the skybox, I like where this is going) :)

    Yes.

    Place it in your 3d skybox and it will be rendered to 16thx it's normal size and so be seen at the size you want it at.

    Actually I am having the same problem with the damn prop. It for some reason doesn't want to work in the skybox, despite looking at the decompiled hydro. If I remove that single prop, the skybox works fine.

    take a look, mayby it can only be placed as prop static, or prop dynamic, some of those props have very weird settings.

    Some are only able as dynamic, some only as static
