    I'm tinkering with an arena map idea that would appear as though one team is "attacking" and one team is "defending," but technically the map would be symmetrical...the attack/defend thing would be cosmetic only.

    So, I'm wondering if it's possible to do the following:
    1) Randomly assign which team gets to "attack/defend," and swap the spawn locations accordingly.
    2) Alter the skins of static and dynamic props before the match starts, to match the spawn assignments.

    If not, I'll just go with generic coloring, and make Blue attack/Red defend. It's arena, so it wouldn't matter. Just trying to do something interesting. ;)

    Brilliant! I'll give that a try.

    I'm not sure why "random arena" didn't occur to me as a search term before I posted. :blink:
