    for my map killer carts ( a not so serious/ fun map)
    [ame="http://forums.tf2maps.net/showthread.php?t=9306"]KotH killer carts - TF2Maps.net[/ame]

    It would be nice to change the fov of a player (only players that chose to do so) to about 130 (higher than possible without cheats)

    is there a way to do this? (without cheats)

    other questions.

    is it possible to make a player partly transparent (10 % visible)

    fov, no. You'd be screwing with their personal settings (and it doesn't go that high anyway).

    Translucent, yes. You'd need a giant trigger over the whole map (or just the spawn room) with the following:
    Column 1 Column 2 Column 3 Column 4
    OnStartTouch !activator AddOutput rendermode 2
    OnStartTouch !activator alpha <amount, 0-255>


    That's off the top of my head from memory, so if it doesn't work let me know.

    Cool, I knew you could do that with sourcemod, but not via map IO.
