    1. How do I "flash" the screen (screen goes white like the player is suddenly blinded with light)?
    2. How do I put text on the screen like sm_mess or sm_csay
    3. How do I (ok may be harder question) parent something onto every player in a certain area

    1) Env_fade, play with that.
    2) Game_text, play with that.
    3) No freaking clue.

    For #3, how do I duplicate something so there can be more than one person with the "object" at a time?

    Copypaste a bunch of them and stack them, maybe? And set an output on each one to enable the next one after a couple seconds, so they don't all follow one player.

    I know nothing about gimmicky/fun maps, so feel free to ignore this.
