Props in _Hammer Editor_ are not working
I am making a payload map for team fortress 2 and so I placed down all of the rails and it all looked good. When I decided to look at it in the game, only some rails loaded but the rest just weren't there, a lot are the same prop and it seems no one else has this issue.

I really need help with this

Some other weird thing going on is that I turned one of the rails diagonal rotation from 20.5 to 20 and it then rendered, but the other props didn't work.

one tip is that some props only work if they are prop_dynamic, while others prop_static. make sure all rails are prop_static.

they are all prop static, apparently rails only render when it is a little bit in the ground only.

No. Judging from the 2nd screenshot, none of your map is inside enclosed space. Hammer needs to have four walls, a floor and a ceiling to completely seal play space.

If you don't, entities leak into the void. Seal your map, and the props should work properly.

Edit: The ones that work, have their origins in your ground brushes. If entities' origins are inside a brush, that counts as enclosed space. That's why the halfway in ground ones, would appear.
