The item_suits never seem to show up, what is wrong here?

You've got to spawn it rather than place it. Confusing, I know... --TomEdwards 13:42, 5 Aug 2005 (PDT)

So if I don't want the player to have to spawn it from the console, I have to have another entity spawn it for me?

using give won't work...suit is given by a hack in this command -ts2do

Sorry but I'm lost.
What I did was insert a point_clientcommand entity. I then have the player start out inside of a trigger once, which triggers the point_clientcommand with a parameter override of "give item_suit." That effectively "uses" that console command and thus gives the player the suit from the beginning of the level.
There must be an easier way to do it, though.
Yes, there is. Insert the newgame_spawn prefab and look how it handles it. --TomEdwards 01:33, 8 Aug 2005 (PDT)

Got it, thanks.

For crying out loud: The suit doesn't show up because it is colliding with the floor. Just place the item_suit one or more units above the ground and it will show up just fine. --Andreasen 22:20, 7 Feb 2006 (PST)

Is there a way to use the Ep1 suit texture in the Orange Box engine? --Professor Fate
