    Joined just to ask for help.

    I started making maps for TF2 today and already I have a problem. I was going to make an Arena map and everything went fine until I tried to create the Control Point.

    I create an entity with the Entity Tool, then I double click on it and make it into a prop_dynamic. Then I double click on "World Model" and then Hammer shuts down.

    I have no idea what I am doing wrong since it worked fine earlier today. I really hope anyone of you can help since I thought it was really fun to create maps and would be sad if I couldn't do it anymore.

    Thanks!

    try using an other model browser by going in tools>options>general and check/uncheck "use vgui model browser"

    or you can download the prop library and copy/paste your models from there

    Or use ABS pack to insert the arena point by use of a prefab. The download can be found in the downloads section.

    Thank you so much!
    I unchecked the "use vgui model browser" and everything worked fine and i added the control point. The next step according to the online guide I found was to create an entity with the class team_control_point. I create an entity with the Entity Tool and then I double click on it with the red arrow-thing. and when i type i "T" to write "team_control_point" in the Class window Hammer shuts down again.

    Why does it keep shutting down?

    Thank you so much for the help.

    EDIT: By "red arrow-thing" I meant the Selection tool.

    Now I can't even open Hammer. Everything shuts down as soon as I try to open a map.

    I got it this year. It's a laptop though, not sure it those are worse for these kind of things since I know nothing about computers.
