    I'm sorry, I've tried, and honestly I can see why valve did what they did. Any attempts at making an accurate collision model literally just doesn't compile due to being too complex.

    Split it up into several models? Might make dummy props that are just there for the collision. Sacrifice: Bullet decals

    Does anybody have a custom texture to make it act like blockbullets?

    If I'm not mistaken, test/invisible should work the same as blockbullets. It seems like it would be a huge pain to work with, though.

    I just thought of an idea. What if somebody remade the spire with a simpler shape? The tricky part would be to make it simpler while still looking good and still recognizable as the spire.

    That would probably work, although I doubt anyone would go through that amount of effort for a pro version of and old valve map.

    For the record, none of the "invisible" textures work as blockbullets, already tried it.

    I'm not sure I entirely understand the problem, but a new (I.E. not the old two-clips-per-stair) method for clipping spiral stairs is explained in this video.
    Presumably it could also be used by the volumes in collision meshes.

    It's a prop and it's not alligned with the hammer grid. That's the problem.

    I surely wouldn't be much more effort than has already been put into trying to make a collision model for the existing spire. Also, the spire gets used in other maps, so the new spire would continue to be useful for years to come.
