    I'm trying to mirror some objects in a KOTH map. Rotating everything 180 degrees will only rotate it. How do you mirror objects perfectly?

    Flip commands are in one of the menus, as well as when you rightclick a selection, as well as the shortcuts ctrl+i and ctrl+l

    I know about the flip commands, but they still aren't mirroring everything correctly.

    Sometimes that just happens and you got to manually flip everything. What I like to do is clip everything on one side as a place holder just to remind me that there's something there, turn off props, and then flip it.

    Props can't be flipped, that might be the problem you are running into. Some props have mirrored versions you can manually use but most don't.

    Props in particular are quite temperamental when it comes to mirroring. You just just to tweak them manually.

    That's awesome. I was having trouble flipping as well.
