    I've been thinking about using clips, placing them. What did I not know how abusable this is:

    * A soldier can pogo on the wall by firing multiple rockets, because clips block any entities, projectiles and so forth that tries to get past it.

    I'd prefer changing it to playerclip so the rocket passes through it, but the player doesn't. This would prevent map exploiting.

    Most of the facts on here are from https://developer.valvesoftware.com/wiki/Clip .

    That post is irrelevant to the thread.

    The choice depends on the situation, as you have mentioned yourself.
    From your given link I found this info about clip:
    Then about player clip:
    I think it is obvious, that these two serve the same purpose. So in my honest opinion, use the one you like. They wont patch this issue, because games that have these issues are old and they wont risk damaging existing maps.
    Edit: Dammit guys, your were too fast!

    I really don't understand what the purpose of this thread was. Did you want to inform other people about clip brushes? Did you want feedback on whether your decision is the correct one? If it's the latter, why not ask in the chat or something instead of making a whole thread? I'm currently feeling quite confused, slightly annoyed and barely aroused at all.

    Your lack of intelligence tell me why you can't make maps.

    Really?

    Please... We are well aware of the functions of the different clips. I'm certain you just want to be helpful, but that there just makes you look like an asshole.

    I told you before. Pride is a bad thing here. People WILL tell you if you do something stupid (I can refer to one of my very first threads, in which i showed of some custom MC textures in a very poorly described way)

    Just stop this. Its getting old. Be patient, learn, come visit us in chat. Keep a low profile, and we might forgive you. I will at least.
