The QC command $staticprop specifies that the model being compiled does not have any moving parts. Despite the name, it does not limit the model to use with prop_static.

The command:

  • Removes all bones except the root. Obviously do not use for ragdolls or animated models.
  • Permits VRAD to use the object's collision mesh to calculate lightmap shadows.
  • Performs several other complex optimisations.


$modelname		"weapons/shell.mdl"
$cdmaterials		"models/weapons/"
$body		shell	"shell-ref.smd"
$sequence	idle	"shell-idle.smd"	// A default animation is still required
$collisionmodel       "shell_PHYS.smd"

Note the absence of a value.
