    Hey, I'm new to the Source SDK, and recently started my first map.

    I've made a decent spawnroom, but when I go to test it, I spawn under the room, maybe 350-400 units. Nothing's out of place, there is no spawnpoint where I keep appearing, it's all contained in the room.

    Has anyone ever had this problem, or know how to fix it?

    Spawn points need to be elevated 16 units (at least) above the floor. Otherwise, this happens.

    Try putting the spawn point mid air in your spawn room. I believe around 16 units works right. I'll double check for you.

    Edit: Yep, looks like it.

    I personally use 8 units. But 1 unit should be enough. I've checked coords via SourceMod, wehen players are moving, they are 0.008125 units above the ground (maybe a bit incorrect, checked long ago).
