Hitboxes shrink after compiling?

I did some hitboxes for the first time, looked fine in HLMV, I compile it and re-open it in HLMV and suddenly it’s much smaller! Am I doing something wrong, or is it supposed to be this way?

Can you post some before and after pictures? I’m not quite sure what you mean by “smaller”. Also are you talking about hitboxes, or physboxes?

Hitboxes, and I don’t have any before pictures because I recompiled it, and restarted HLMV… And with smaller just, smaller, not the size I set it in HLMV.

Did you use a $scale command somewhere in between the hitbox commands and the reference smd in your qc?

That I did… So thats most likely the problem… thanks.
