    Code:
    Engine Error
    ---------------------------
    bad inline model number 125, worldmodel not yet setup

    There's a thread about a similar problem here, however, there seems to have been no resolution found.

    I do get an error where during compile stating that it was unable to load model "", however when I do the fixing method recommended on interlopers, I am unable to find any entity with a setting like the one below that would indicate something trying to load an empty model.

    "model" ""


    I'm not using any HL2/Portal models and nothing is leaking. This problem does not seem to affect all downloaders, but only some of them will crash when I've attempted to test this with a full server of downloaders.

    Does anyone have any suggestions as to how to go about fixing this?

    Its really a pain as the map is complete except for this issue, and if people can't download it from the server, it can't be released.

    then mabe its asking for HL2 to be installed
    ask the ones that are crashing if they have HL2 installed and ask the ones that arnt if they have HL2 installed

    mabe some shared model in HL2 with TF2?

    I wish this was the case, however some of the people that crashed I know have the full orange box and everything installed.

    It looks like you set a prop_static without actually defining its world model (and there is no default).

    I tried the method on interlopers that said to open the VMF with notepad and look for an entity with no defined model and I found nothing

    If you haven't already set up a bajillion static props, you could always use the Entity Report and go through all of them.

    Alright I managed to fix this, just for future reference in case any one else gets similar issues

    I don't think the prop with out a model was the cause of the error, however, interlopers method of finding it does not work,you have to go through the entity report and check every prop_static for it, which can be extremely tedious when you have your entity buffer 95%+ full.

    I believe the error was caused by forcing some weapon models to dynamic props, in the map we had a cafeteria sort of area, and used the demo's bottle, the spy's butterfly knife, and the heavy's sandwich as props.

    Its weird cause on some compiles they caused no issues, but on others it would cause the error. I deleted all of them and had people attempt to download the map and it worked fine.

    It also doesn't make sense to me why the map would work fine if you already had it, but not if you downloaded it through the server.
