    So, I was wondering if anyone knows why a model would suddenly lose it's color/texture. In my map I have several sets of tire models (not custom, just Valve's). Four of the tires turn an ugly off-white color when I load the map but they look fine in Hammer. And it's just those four, all the others look perfectly fine. I'm gonna try to delete them and put new tires in and see if that fixes it. I was just curious and wanted to know if anyone else has ran into this problem or what might be causing it.

    props can sometimes turn weird colours if they are slightly poking into the void or into brushes.

    Indeed, though the tires in question are doing neither. I just find it odd that they worked fine and then without me changing them in any way they go all wonky. Weird.

    Quoting myself... hmm.

    Anyway, got it figured out. I think it was the lighting. I just threw in a light_info and pointed the tires to it. Cleared the problem right up.
