Hello there, If you are making a dark map and you want add a flare, See this tutorial, So let's start.

NOTE : This tutorial works in Half-Life 2, Half-Life 2: Episode One and Half-Life 2: Episode Two. In case of Half-Life 2, it doesn't have a flare model, so you need download some model or copy the HL2 Episodic flare model in the game.

First, add a "prop_physics" and find some model for the flare. I'll use the HL2 Episodic flare model.

After, add some "env_flare" in the top of the flare model.

Add some name in the "env_flare" and go in the Flags and mark "Start off".

Add some name in the flare model, Like "flare_prop" or something.

After, go in the flare model and add these outputs.

OnPlayerPickup = flare = Launch = 0.00
OnPhysGunPickup = flare = Launch = 0.00
OnPlayerPickup = flare_prop = Skin = 1 = 30.00
OnPhysGunPickup = flare_prop = Skin = 1 = 30.00

And that's it, Thanks for reading this, and sorry my bad english.
