I think it's worth to point out this $staticprop explanation from VERC:

  • You should always use the $staticprop qc option with prop_physics models.
  • $staticprop is named similarly to prop_static entities for historical reasons - but the two things are completely separate concepts.
  • $staticprop removes all of the bone info for the model and collapses the object to a single coordinate system. You want to do this always (unless you're making an animated prop/character) because it makes the model more efficient for rendering.

Tom - I hope you will include the deleted information in another more relevant article? --Beeswax 03:53, 26 Apr 2008 (PDT)

Read the text carefully - nothing has been removed at all. --TomEdwards 04:03, 26 Apr 2008 (PDT)
Then you'll have no objection to my replacing it? --Beeswax 04:31, 26 Apr 2008 (PDT)
Whatever. Just more for people to read. The only thing I'm going to change is the pigeon-holing of models with it into the prop_ entities. --TomEdwards 04:34, 26 Apr 2008 (PDT)
Giving people things to read is the purpose of documentation. --Beeswax 05:02, 26 Apr 2008 (PDT)
Let me rephrase: "More stuff for people to read before they gain the same understanding as before". I can't be bothered to fight it right now. --TomEdwards 09:17, 26 Apr 2008 (PDT)
