New tool for mappers: Propper

Visit the wiki page for more info and download information.
http://developer.valvesoftware.com/wiki/Propper

Quote:
Propper is an edited version of vbsp that outputs a model instead of a bsp.

Many mappers need to make props for their maps, but don't want to learn a seperate modeling program. This tool allows them to make models in Hammer in a one-step process. It's also useful to modelers who work with mappers. No other method of .vmf export keeps texture mapping intact, or auto-generates a physics mesh.

Features:
  • Can create static props or physics props
  • Generates a .qc file and automatically compiles the prop for use in your game.
  • Generates a working physics mesh.
  • Automatic material conversion--Turns map textures into valid model textures.
  • Distinguishes between real textures and "tool" textures.
  • Respects Hammer smoothing groups or autosmooth.
  • Configure your prop from within Hammer.
