the props that don't show up are likely set to be dynamic only, for example, that miningcrate model is a gib model which is dynamic. There should be one that is static.

see the INFO tab? those checks tell you what the prop can be, for example, this barrel crate can be static or dynamic, if it doesn't say STATIC, it can't be a prop_static
