    Hello. I'm working on a single-stage (possibly multi-stage in the future) map named "Confusion". In this map, I have a item_healthammokit with it's model set to mil_backpack_1. I would like a version of it that rotates like a normal pickup, so people will not confuse it with a normal prop.

    For now you could ghetto-rig a rotating door and parent a prop_dynamic to it. Remove the collision from both and make it so when the pickup is taken, the prop_dynamic has the alpha turn to zero. You can also set up a timer to turn the alpha back to 1 (if there isn't already something that detects when a pickup respawns).

    Exactly. Don't know why they removed them in the first place.

    This sounds like a good idea, but how do I use the door? I've never worked with a func_door_rotating, so I'm not so sure how to get them to infinitely rotate.

    Apparently "creative" and "useful" had to be sacrificed for "disagree".

    Some sites that use XenForo have like over 8 types of ratings.
