Well, it has been a while since I did any mapping at all really. I been modeling as of lately. But I've never been able to get func_plats to work right without an origin brush. And I distinctly remember reading 1 or more tutorials that did specify to use an origin brush with the func_plat which is how I finally got my func_plats working.
Also I did go through RichDiesals tutorial on them and they didn't work right untill I added the origin brush.
Maybe I was doing something else wrong or there's another method I don't know about that's easier.
