How to make a button spawn a prop?

I’m trying to make a spot in my map where when you press a button an explosive barrel spawns on this pedestal every time you press it. I don’t know how to do this and I couldn’t find any tutorials on it, so can anyone help?


My idea’s artistic? O_o


Keep the artistic ratings coming. I don’t know why, but keep doing it. :stuck_out_tongue:

Lol does noone know?
Use that tutorial, just change it to what you want… Basically it tells you how to use a point_template.

Make the explosive oildrum. (prop_physics)
Give it a name. Let’s use BARREL as an example.
Make a point_template.
Give it a name. Let’s use SPAWNER as an example.
Set BARREL as the point_template’s Template 01 keyvalue.
Make a button. (func_button)
These outputs:
OnPressed | SPAWNER | ForceSpawn

Now it should work.

Thanks. I’ll check that out.
