I tried putting an invisible object under her to stand on when she spawns, but she's still missing, though her little ! is present on the map from where her 'default text' is on. It's a scratchbuilt map, so I'm wondering if it could be the same bug that's causing the boffs to fall through the turbolift floor upon spawning? Anyone got any ideas? Or am I going to have to move her off from the artifact and just have her floating on the ground?

Also, anyone noticed with the wall console 1 (the big blue ones), they give off a shrill whine when you get close? Which makes it a bit uncomfortable when you have a corridor of them.
Just for thoroughness, can to publish it and test it in live? Quirks in preview don't always translate to live. I would also double check the "Y relative to" is the same for all your objects. Also give it a could extra meters and see if it appears.
