I'm still working through the tutorial, and I've run into another problem. I'm creating a stim and response, and the way I understand it, I have to create a small brush and change its classname to func_static. The problem is that its classname is worldspawn and it refuses to change!

On further inspection, I've realised that all of my brushes are worldspawn, and they all have the arg shop_skip 1. I also wanted to create a location trigger as well, and that brush only has the args classname: worldspawn and shop_skip: 1. They just refuse to be anything else! What's going on?

bambini:
1) turn your brush or brush combo into func_static
2) select it
3) bring up the Create entity dialogue while the func_static is selected
4) find the class you are looking for
5) your brush will now belong to the selected entity class (however, this means you won't be able to resize it without reverting back to worldspawn)

You can select and resize child brushes of entities by "tabbing" through them.

I think the confusion here is that whereas with other entities you can select the classname and change it, with worldspawn I think it is protected so you don't accidentally convert all of worldspawn to something nasty. Instead you need to:

RMB in ortho view
Create entity OR...
Select convert to func_static
