    Hi! Is there a way to move a single intelligence-icon out of the center of the HUD via mapping? I want to do this because... this screenshot speaks for itself:

    I chose an X-shaped CP layout because my map is not linear. The Team-Preassigned CPs are equally reachable from the middle. I had a linear HUD layout before, but it has very much potential to confuse players.

    When inputting the index's to arrange the icons, couldn't you in theory create a blank line or space for it, just by leaving one of the indexs blank? (I forget exactly what the format is, but 1 2 , , 3 4 would have an empty middle line?)

    If that works, it would be only mediocre-useful because I still need the HUD to show the Center CP.

    ...

    But if I remove the center CP generally... Do I want that? A 4 CP map? Don't know

    I said I wasn't sure of the proper format, but in that keyvalue it gives a description on what the proper format is. Read that and try to toy with it.

    Yeah, I did not only use your advise. I already toyed around with it. It seems impossible. I think I will have to use a line again. But thank you anyways.

    You could try to create "ghost" cp's that dont do anything, with a custom invisible hud icon, in order to add space in the hud

    In this picture I have the layout set as: 0 1 5 5 5,2 5 5 5,3 4 5 5 5
    Where 5 is a CP with a transparent hud icon
