    quick explanation of ph if you dont know what it is:

    Prophunt Is a mod on tf2 where blu are any class except scout or spy (defult class it choses is pyro - mainly best as you can burn props. but you cant use some weps as some classes). Everytime a blu attacks they lose hp (so they cant spam). The Control Point gives you full hp, but you can only use once every 90 seconds. Red are scouts with a skin of a random prop (thats included in the map). The object of the game is red hides and trys to last all the round. The last person alive on red team gets a gun (for fareness).

    Anyway in prophunt maps usually have secret ledges/spots. Some maps have secret rooms.

    I want a secret room in my map but i dont want to copy one already made. Any ideas?

    ones already made are:
    ice room
    Music room (this has flashing lights in xD)
    Brainslug room.

    they can be between non solid props, func_illusionary's; anything thats really "hidden"

    i was kinda thinking about the actual room - not how to get in; but thanks, i may use that idea on my next map(s)

    That would require a custom animation which is not easy to do.

    Just don't get overly complicated with your secrets. I'd hate to play a round of prophunt and always lose because someone can hide in a place that can't be found unless you made the map or were told by the author.

    Also this.

    There's still a spot on ph_canyon that I can't figure out how to get to as a scout.
