    OK, I've looked around in the SDK docs and these forums, and couldn't find an answer to how to do this:

    I'm working on a neutral (single) CTF map

    On flag capture (by either team), I want to put in a delay before the flag becomes available again, like 60 seconds

    The intel will spawn in the same place all the time

    In steam chat, I heard that doing so may screw up the HUD...

    So, is it possible?

    Thanks in advance!

    just disable the flag and enable it 60 seconds later :)

    it worked

    I was probably overthinking it

    Thanks!

    make sure you have some kind of message poping up indicating the time left for reappearance 60...30..20..10.. or so to avoid confusion
