    After compiling a map and going to TF2, I get this in console:
    Code:
    Item item_healthkit_medium fell out of level at -448.000000,0.000000,1088.000000
    Item item_healthkit_full fell out of level at 448.000000,0.000000,1088.000000
    Item item_healthkit_medium fell out of level at 672.000000,0.000000,513.000000
    Item item_healthkit_medium fell out of level at -672.000000,0.000000,513.000000
    Item item_healthkit_medium fell out of level at -0.029054,-672.023987,513.000000
    Item item_healthkit_medium fell out of level at -0.029113,671.976013,513.000000
    All 6 of these items just completely disappear from the map, how do I fix this? They are currently floating in midair, is that the reason they are falling out of level through all floors?

    You are supposed to put them on top of something. They aren't staying where you put them. They will drop if you put them in mid air. If you want them in the air, you could try to add invisible textured platform to them, though that will also block players.

    I have made another map before for TF2 where there are items floating in midair tho, that was about a year ago.

    Health and Ammo packs don't drop to the floor. They stay at the specified location and do a little spin animation. This is why on some maps the item packs appear higher above the ground than on other maps: Because they actually are.

    Not to forget gravelpit's underground healthkit.

    I kind of wanted to put a few health/ammo packs more than 1000 units above the ground that is straight below them, I was able to do this before but now those packs disappear completely and I get what I mentioned on console. That's the problem here.

    Update, if health kits/ammo packs have name or model set, they disappear in-game saying they "fell out of level".
    Yet another one of those things that make a lot of sense.

    I assumed health kits drop too since spells do drop. I guess i was wrong.

    I dunno; when I tried placing some kits a specific difference above the ground, they definitely dropped till they were touching it. I can experiment some more if y'all want me to.
