    After I tested my map pd_ritual in the gameday, many people complained about the problem that they don't know which capture zone is unlocked. To solve this I wanted to add two (hidden) cp's that can't be caped and just lock/unlock in the hud, so you can see which capture zone is active. The problem is that I can't get this to work properly. The cp_icons are showen in the hud, but there inside the pd-bar and get covered when you score Points. Another Problem is that the Points don't unlock even if I'm sending the output: "OnTrigger (it's an relay) - point_a - SetLocked - 0" What can I do to solve this or do you have better ideas how you could recognize which of the two capture zones are unlocked?

    Don't quote me on this, but I'm fairly sure that the PD hud is very customizable. Perhaps you could get some help to get it to innately show which area is active.

    Do what pd_tribute does where it has a voice line to say the which zone is open when they switch, and has a big particle over the zone that is unlocked.

    Uh, except adding points to the hud should be a whole lot easier than creating and packing custom content for an alpha. I know Presidents had control points with a PD style hud so it should be possible to just add control points.

    Author of Presidents here. Displaying both huds is actually quite simple: just set your tf_gamerules hud type to CP hud, then go to your team_control_point_master and adjust "Custom cap position Y". Presidents has this value set to 0.8.

    Any ideas why the control points aren't unlocking or how I can lock/unlock them otherwise?
