    Hello there.

    I've been making a map for quite some time now, and originally i had it as a 5cp map, but there was also another bonus cap that was available for cap at all times. It wasn't necessary to win, and it just gave the owner some bonus stuff. Unfortunately, I ran into some problems and decided to make my own system for a capture point. But people didn't realize it was a capture point.

    So I switched it back. Here's what's wrong:
    The cap layout is supposed to look like this:
    [] [] [] [] []
    ___ []
    But it looks like this:

    Also, the map makes it so i need to cap it to win the match.
    Even tho it has no colour, when i cap the rest of the points, i need it to win the game.

    So if you know how to fix this, or even need me to explain it better, just reply back

    Thanks :)

    I think you want to set up your team_control_point_master with a CapLayout of <0 1 2 3 4, 5>

    Try it the other way, <5, 0 1 2 3 4>, just for shits and giggles.

    Also, try breaking it up into three groups, rather than two, just to see if it helps, <0 1, 2 3 4, 5>

    Ok , so i did that, The cap is separated (which is good, and i guess it could work.)
    However, it still makes the blue cap1 unlocked, like its next inline or something.
    Red cant cap it, but it still looks weird. :/

    The inequality signs are not supposed to be in the layout field. It should just be 0 1 2 3 4,5

    I changed it, it worked. But the blu_cap1 is still unlocked, anyway to change that? :(

    Manually configure the "previous required point" settings for each CP.

    the one on its own should point to itself, the others should point to the last point needed.

    Yeah, i had the 2nd, 3rd, and 4th points configured but not the last. So i guess it required the rest of the points to be capped to be able to cap it.

    Thanks for helping guys. :)

    Really it only needs the previous 1. Owning that one requires the previous one to that, so you don't need to specify it.

    It's only if you have a A+B -> C that you need to specify that C needs both A and B because those two don't need each other.
