SO I'm using Vluzacn's ZHLT tools coz it makes lighting look better and also adds some shadows with transparent textures. The thing is, I want a model to look dark but I don't know how to do it. With the default compiler I could do it but with the new one it looks bright.

What are you using to make it dark? Did you set any values on the model or is it just in the shade?

I made a clip brush around it and set its zhlt flags to opaque (the one that blocks light) so it can cast a shadow. I noticed that when I use vluzacn's zhlt, the model will look dark if the brush above has an opaque texture instead of a transparent (talking about the net).

The thing is, I wanna have the transparent brush cast its shadows and shit AND make the model look dark. I tried messing with the render modes but nuttin changed :(

I'm not really sure what might be different about your new compilers, but I think models take their light value from the floor directly under them. Can you try moving the model over a darker patch and see if that helps?

I did but it didn't work. That being said when I walk there there's only one spot that the player model gets dark but I noticed it after I released the map. I also tried changing the transparent texture to an opaque one and it worked, but I wanted to keep the net.

Sooo, I decided to replace the model with crates.

Don't forget to throw in a barrel to spice it up!

It's a dust themed map so I dunno which barrels would fit link.

I'm thinking of re-working on the textures and stuff and maybe I'll add some barrels too.
