    I'm working on my first map. Its a payload map in a castle/missile silo. I'm going to open a pimp thread once I get a little further along. I'm working on one of the towers right now, and There is a room in which I want to place a torch. I am using a prop_static, and the egypt torch model. Now I want to add fire to the torch, but env_fire doesn't work with tf2. What else can I use to make fire?

    If you want, I could personally make you fire. Or alternatively, if you're feeling cheap, got to [ame="http://forums.tf2maps.net/showthread.php?t=4379"]http://forums.tf2maps.net/showthread.php?t=4379[/ame]. It's not perfect, but it's easy. Just make an info_particle_system and make sure to make an info_target entity and set it as the second cp (where the fire will go to).
    EDIT: Actually, just make a func_particle_system and set the system name to "burning_torch". And make sure that start enabled is set to yes.
