    Map exploitation is nothing new to the prop hunt scene. If I could count how many spots that I know of where hunters cannot see or attack you, I would be in a lot of luck.

    Obviously it goes without saying that using these map exploits is against the rules of the server, and all players on the server need to know the rule. We also need to ensure that there are active moderators and admins on the prop hunt server in order to ensure issues like this never happen again.

    Keeping in mind he randomly fell through the map. Wonder if there's a way to patch that. Probably.

    I'll see if I can look into hammer / valve sdk / whatever people use these days.

    Keeping in mind that I never accused him of doing it on purpose. I know he did it on accident. Just saying that these maps were not designed for objects significantly smaller than human models to be moving around on, so there are tons of exploits where small objects will go through invisible walls or barriers on most of the maps we have on there. That's just to be expected. Personally, I have never found a prop hunt server that didn't have exploits on their maps, so I would go as far to say that there are no complete fixes to all the exploits you can find. That is why I said the only real way to combat exploitation is to have dedicated PH mods and admins. Without them, people will find, and most certainly use, any exploit they can get their hands on.

    I know there are ways to fix it. When the map loads you can have a script that will spawn an invisible prop at those coordinates that basically will add a wall in. Try googling it around you might be able to find a free version of the script. I am not so familiar with the gmod syntax and whatnot anymore.

    I sent a PM to you and Machete though, maybe I can help. I am interested in making some addons again as I do not really use notepad for anything anymore and I am missing it. I am not suggesting regular server coding, but just pop in make a script and pop out.
