    So I was going along merrily building my prop library map (don't ask, I'll post it when I'm done), dealing with tiny traincars since I'm laying out all the skybox props and all of a sudden I wonder where the model went after typing it in... no error model, I just don't see it. I close the properties window and look closer... MUCH closer...

    What is that? A cockroach? I thought I was adding a flatbed car... I can't get close enough to see for sure before the camera clips through it, so I turn down the camera's FOV and I confirm my suspicions... Sure enough, someone at valve accidentally 1/16'd a model that was already at 1/16... :lol:

    Wow, this has to be one of the funniest things I have seen that relates to TF2. But it wouldn't have been half as funny without the build up you added to it Boojum. LOL! I had to read it again...

    That was actually one of the props they were gonna use for 'giant maps', the opposite of rate maps. So when you put it in the skybox you feel really big.:p

    That's actually quite a funny find.
