cant wait for LOD support, I'll prolly convert a good amount of my brush geometry into models.

You can easily do LOD in propper by simply making multiple models and then going back and editing the .QC file of one of them to included the other SMD files, then re-compile that on .QC file. The bonus is you now have lower res copies already compiled for skybox or other distance use.

it doesn't seem to produce animation smds though, That is kinda stopping me from compiling anything, anyone else experiencing this?

The reference smd is used as the animation SMD. It's valid because it already contains everything that's needed for a single frame animation.

Ah I see, i got it working now but i still need to compile it manually.

In any case, This is a very useful tool for those who cannot use a modelling program, thank you for your great contribution to the source modding community cfoust sir!

Sounds very useful, but I have two questions:

If you already have modeling software and know how to use it, then is this tool still useful?

Is the download safe?

It's useful as a SMD exporter from Hammer, or if you have an existing map that would benefit from optimization.

The download contains an exe that is an edited version of Valve's SDK code. I can only give you my word that I haven't added any malicious code. Or I can send you the source code if you like.

You don't need to. I can just download it. But where do I extract it? I didn't install Source SDK yet.

The zip files contains a folder called sourcesdk--you merge that with your existing steam\steamapps\<username>\sourcesdk folder (you must have the SDK installed first). It won't work if you put it anywhere else.

Please read Developer.valvesoftware.com and look at some of the links at the bottom of the page.

Thank you for this wonderful tool. I'm using it alot.

Do you plan to add basic animation support? Or is that out of the question?

Almost certainly not. Letting you make bones in Hammer would be possible, but I have no idea how you could do mesh weighting and keyframe animation. At any rate it's far outside my initial intentions for the tool.

Propper is one hell of an awesome add-on.
The things created with it are, of course, not as good looking as real made models, but it is an awesome help to create simple brushes, compile them as a model and use those in your map!

I have been using Propper as a rule in my mod Novacor: The Fringe. I dont use a modellling program, and without this I would have had to learn to or just make a basic Half Life 2 Mod. Thanks again, you will be in the Mod credits as a special thanks!

Source SDK had a small update just today. Ever since then I have not been able to compile any models using Propper. The Compile Log outputs two lines of

"Can't load f:\program files (x86)\steam\ steamapps\USERNAME\ sourcesdk\bin\ orangebox\bin\ filesystem_steam.dll."

before stopping. Propper is a superb tool that I can't work without, I would be very greatful of a fix or any imformation on the issue I am having.
