    I want my elevator (a door that goes up when you stand on the trigger) to wait a couple seconds once you stand in the trigger zone before going up. Here's what I have right now: see attachment

    Right now it goes up fine but does so immediately after entering the trigger zone. What am I doing wrong? or how should I do it.

    Did you make sure to uncheck the "Touch opens" flag? Also it should normally enforce the delay as long as its specified and nothing else triggers it before.

    THANK YOU SO MUCH! The "Touch opens" flag fixed it. They all work perfect now :)

    Note that doors moving upwards will stop moving when there are two players on the door which touch eachother. To fix that you need to make the door not solid and parent a func_brush on the door.
    For some reason the func brush can carry multiple players up without problems while a func_door has issues.
