    With the steampipe update, all things that the internet says you need to pack things into a map is unusable. So how does it work?

    You use something like Pakrat or VIDE.

    If you're using PakRat, it shouldn't be an issue. Except for .nav meshes, for some reason trying to pack in a nav mesh with PakRat wrecks the file

    PackBSP is utterly broken

    There's other pack apps out there, but since PackBSP broke, I've been using just PakRat

    Packbsp only wrecks the file with navmesh if you click "yes" to updating the navmesh. If you click no it works fine.

    You can pack in NavMeshes with you change the path file to /maps... I think.
