    uhm, i know that sign only from when there is a model missing
    could you post a screenshot from within hammer to see what should be there?

    prop_detail doesn't work in tf2

    edit: use prop_static instead (for most things)

    prop_detail is a thing you use on brushes, so they don´t cut up the visleafs unnecessarily,
    you can´t use them on props, make them prop_static
    to control visibility of objects like those, use viewdistance

    That's actually a func_detail that you tie brushes too.

    Even using prop_statics you might see those errors. In which case the offending model might need to be used as a prop_dynamic (animated things like the gas lamps) or a prop_physics (things like beer cans).

    As far as I know the only way to tell is to compile, look for errors in the log or go in game and see either an error or no object. Also if you bring up consle in game it will show you the errors.

    prop_detail is auto-generated according to a material's VMT to make stuff like the little grass tufts on the ground. It is never supposed to be placed in Hammer.

    eerieone, your thinking of func_details, but yeah, as already said, prop_detail is broken in tf2 for some reason.
