    I got into some trouble while practising map design.

    When I click my world to create an entity, it spawns a prop_static about 650 HU:s south from where it's supposed to spawn. The problem does not fade if I change the spawned object from the settings, nor does quitting Hammer entirely solve my issue. I first ran into the problem trying to spawn a prefab door using Boojum Snark's toolkit.

    I can compensate for the wrong object spawning, but it's quite annoying compared to when I started off. Can some one please help me out of this mess? I will greatly appreciate it.

    does it happen on different maps? or over games? Try verifying the integrity of game files (this includes hammer I believe). If nothing works you could always reinstall hammer (but only as a last resort).

    The only game I map for is TF2, otherwise I wouldn't be here. Also, after restarting, the entity tool did create prop dynamics where I wanted them, but right as I tried to spawn a prefab door again, the issue returned. I think it's an issue with my Boojum Snark's kit.

    abs pack comes with an uninstaller, just run it, and then rerun the installer

    Can you give me the directory path? I'll look around, but do tell me if you know where it's at.

    Edit: Nevermind, found it. Same place where yours is.

    Alright, after reinstalling the resource pack, the problem is no more. Thank you Yaba for guiding me through this "Have you tried turning it on and off again?". I appreciate it.
