    Hello everyone,

    I'm currently working on a CP map that has a train running through the middle of it. I am trying to have an info_observer_point or camera of some kind parented to the front of the train so that you can watch it mow down other players when you are respawning, but info_observer_point does not have a "parent" field. I tried looking into treating the train as though it was a payload so that it would have a camera following it, but did not have much success.
    Any ways to make this work or things I should try, or is this a dead-end? Thanks!

    Make a bunch of them and enable them and disable them as the train passes your path tracks.

    turn of smart edit
    then manually ad a key value name parent and set its value to the entity you want to parent it to.

    the camera will be quite shocky when turning around corners

    I used this in photofinish

    yeah, you can do that with nearly any object (yes, you can have moving spawns)
