Sticky Barrels

Hey guys!

So, my map is going well. We play it pretty regularly at work and the guys seems to enjoy it. It seems pretty balanced. there is one problem that people complain about though... I have a bunch of exploding barrels that actually can be used and are a great little extra something that makes the game play that much more intense. The problem is that players tend to get stuck on the barrels when they are on their side or if one comes rolling down a ramp toward them. You have to shoot the barrel, risking death and at least serious injury :), or press the use key to try and get away from the barrel. I know this issue has come up before, but I can't find any references to source, only to 1.3 and earlier. What's the deal with this? Is there a fix I can do via properties or cfg files? Anything short of removing the barrels? Thanks!

Not really. If the barrels are your original models, you could *try* to play with their bounding box/physics box, that's probably the main issue that makes some items stick to players.

Well... no, they are stock models. Hmmm.
