    I've been trying to add props to my map, but for some reason they aren't appearing. I took them from the Prop Library map so they're definitely the right prop type, and I've ensured the fade distances are right. What else could be causing this problem?

    Check the boxes for the props you want under Visgroups. It'll then show you the props in that catogory (eg. props_spytech)

    Pfffft, I totally read that wrong. Are they prop_static or prop_detail?

    They appear when I place them in Hammer, but they're not there in the compiled map...

    And they're prop_static. Pine trees, to be precise.

    Does your map have a leak? If you haven't sealed your map (either with brushes or the cordon tool), and the prop is too close to the hole, it can sometimes disappear.
