These simple entities are really puzzling to me. The P90 for example....not only to get the gun, floated slide and clip but you get two floating arms as well! How do you use these? What are they even for?

A gun pickup is a standard Entity, not a Simple one. I hvae no idea what the simple weapon entities are for.

sounds like you've found the models for the first person view... that is to say, that they're the models that you, and only you, see when you're playing the game and looking around.

No, the a arms are outstretched slightly above and behind the gun. There's floating slide/bolt off the right of the gun and a floating ammo clip above the gun itself.

Bob: Look for the Pickups folder in the Entities tab. The Basic ones are pretty much blank templates that you have to modify manually to get to work.
