    Is there a way to make a truly invincible sentry, One that can not be sapped, Im making re spawning sentry in my map and if they are sapped with the red tape they will not re spawn.

    Try putting a playerclip brush around the sentry, just enough so that Spies cant get close enough to it to sap it

    It would be unintuitive if a spy couldn't sap a sentry when they get close enough. That's part of the reason any, even for sentries built into the map, you should playerclip them if you want them to be invincible.

    respawnroom visualizers could also work and are probably a better idea

    Out of curiosity, why are you placing functioning sentries onto your map?

    As both Asylum and Wareya have said, if you player-clip the sentry guns then that should work.

    But you should also try just player-clipping the width/length of the sentry; perhaps spy sappers are like engi buildings and if you try to build in player-clip it doesn't work (instead of the idea of just not being able to reach the sentry because of the clip).

    Well I have boxed one off before with a player clip, and the was HUGE!, and the respawnroom visualizers is not a bad Idea, But will still have a huge spot the other team cant walk through. And Lenny, Its a trade map, and they stop spawn camping

    If you want to avoid spawn camping, why not just set up some geometry so those in the spawn room can always shoot people outside the spawn from complete safety?

    Or if you're looking for comedy, a button that fires a trigger_hurt that kills anyone inside it who's on the other team.

    Any decent trade server has strict spawn-camping rules. Just saiyan.
