In some HL maps you have probably seen the gib items somewhere or other. I know that Blue Shift used them in the intro scene where the scientist attempts to fix the console, and I'm pretty sure they used them in Office Complex too. They also used them to good extent in the excellent mod "Invasion", if you've heard of that. After seeing them, you've probably gone and looked for the textures to make these items yourself, only to find they don't exist! This is where gib items come in - they're essentially model prefabs that you can insert into your maps for more detail. The following list details all of the submodels within the listed .mdl gib file that are useful to mappers.

-**NOTE**-

Okay, I fixed the numbers with the incredibly wonderful help from [ICR], who sent me (quite a while back) a fixed number list.
