    I'm using an older version of the Gametype Library, so this may have been fixed already, but I'd like to bring it up anyway because I'm too lazy to look through and see

    I used this to set up a single-stage payload level. However, the cart could not be stopped by RED standing next to it. I fixed this by having the control points refer to "RED Previous Required Point 1" with their own name (i.e. cp_one has RED Previous Required Point 1 filled in with "cp_one"). I had a similar problem with this when making a CP map a while ago so that's how I knew how to fix it, but it was a real baffling problem that had me stumped for a while.

    Like I said this might've already been fixed, but I'm just throwing it out there.

    I avoided this for so long, thinking it scary and not useful. God was I wrong. Thank you so much man.

    Indeed. When I put custom models in I often forget they arn't in the prop library I use them so much.

    Updated!

    I've left out all seven props_viaduct models (the rooftop snow) because they are so extremely specialized in shape I can't possibly see anyone being able to reuse them.

    The KOTH entity should be pretty self explanitory, the hybrid one is just a drop-in-an-go like the multiple escort.

    The other notable improvement is the trigger_hurt now has decent names ("Train" and "Saw") for stuff, I culled out the non-special ones, and even added in a hidden one ;)

    edit: oh and don't forget there is a visgroup in the prop library just for each new update's props!

    Snark,

    I thanked you again here. Putting the whole collection of libraries together in a neat little installer is incredibly helpful (I am administering 48 computers in the school lab) and the timing couldn't be better as I just finished installing the USource accounts. Thank you!

    Awesome, AWESOME WORK!

    Whoa what? You're teaching with SourceSDK in a school? I haven't heard about this USource thing, I am intrigued. and glad to hear my stuff is useful on such a... bigger level. :D

    You´re a blast :D

    Question, today´s update:
    does this need to be updated too, or does this work independant from the fgd?

    rock on!

    Yeah I remember reading something about Valve donating Source Dev Kits to schools for use in teaching.
