    I am in the process of making a Halloween-themed payload map and I really need help with 2 things:
    1) Spell pickups act differently on my map for some reason,the spell hud doesn't show up.Is there some sort of entity that activates it or..?
    2) plr_hightower_event's cart spews out spells when the cart is capped.How do I add that effect to my own payload?

    Thanks for the help.

    It doesn't affect spells apparently.

    I haven't looked at a decompiled version of hell tower, but I always assumed it was using the path_track's OnPass outputs with a pair of env_entity_makers (one per cart) and a point_template that references a tf_spell_pickup entity that has it's auto-materialize disabled.

    Edit: Although, now that I think about it, there are probably better ways of doing this using the team_train_watcher or something.

    Unfortunately it's another hardcoded thing, it's the obj map dispenser that spawns spells when healing players, but it looks internally for helltower halloween scenario so yeah it's restricted to helltower. Sorry

    I did ask about this feature few months ago, that if it would be possible to implement into the maps. I would have wanted to use it with this cauldron, to make the spell pop out from it instead of lid dropping through the spell itself. In the mail, i was told they could take a look at exposing that feature to maps at some point but week ago i asked again and received no reply anymore. Either the team is busy or its sadly off the table. :-/
