Talk:Dropper (Portal 2)

For creating multiple droppers, I didn't use the same instance twice that made too many cubes spawn out of either dropper. For the second cube dropper in my map I used "instances/gameplay/cube_dropper_dropontrigger_normal.vmf" which then gave me the inputs without the @ symbol. The first dropper still used the @ symbol and was the "cube_dropper_normal" instance. Can anyone else verify?

I had same experience, I couldn't get multiple droppers to work until I did the method above. I think the page should be modified. Mattyd

Referenced Instance Doesn't Exist

While helping a friend, I did a little research and discovered that the reflectocube_dropper_multiple_normal instance that's referenced in the chart doesn't actually exist in the Authoring Tools' provided instances. It would be easy enough to modify it and resave it to use the reflector cubes (I might do it myself and post it somewhere). However, shouldn't it be noted (or fixed) on the page that it doesn't exist by default?--WinstonSmith 03:35, 4 June 2011 (UTC)
