    Ok, I seem to have some issues with with the swamp pack. For one, I cannot see the buoy particle, I saw it the very first time I loaded the map, but no other time. Also, for those one time only particles, is there a way to make them repeat?

    I was also wondering, when others download a swamp map ON tf2 won't it just give them the .bsp not the (yourmapname)_particle.txt or the detail_swamp.vbsp? so they won't see the particles or detail sprites?

    Lastly, I was working on a non-swamp map, and for the hell of it I put in the waterdrip prefab and I could see it without changing the name of the yourmapname_particle.txt why is that?(I have it changed to swamp_zoo_particle.txt)

    ok, thank you :D, one last thing, this may sound noobish, but do you have to pakrat the custom materials? it just seems to me that they would be part of the .bsp
