would anyone out there be so kind as to point me to a link to some sort of tutarial on how to add prefabs to you map? i've googled, searched far and near, and to no avail. the closest thing i could find was where it told you to select your block tool and then look over on the right side of the screen in the dropdown box where it says "categories" but when i do that the only option under the dropdown box is "primitives". please help. thanks in advance!

You can use the Categories dropdown when you have the Selector tool. (1st tool, red arrow)

Just choose the prefab you want and click Insert Original Prefab right below there.

It worked for me -- course I've never used prefabs before...

Click the drop-down box and it should have other choices. If not then somethings up...

I don't know what's going on. That stuff should come with Hammer by default.

okay, i just found out that only a few of the prefabs i get actually work for some reason, and others don't. regardless, i found out that they're not .mdl files, which i guess is sorta what i thought it'd be at first. how do you add .mdl files into your map? are they supposed to show up under the prefabs dropdown box too?

I think you can use the entity called cycler to place a mdl.

There may also be another entity for it, I can't seem to remember.
