    ...To add MVM Credits as a respawning entity or nonrespawning in a set location on a map? Im trying to do this with a map but I cant figure out what the credits are called or if they arent usable whatsoever.

    Ah, it has to be spawned by a button? I look forward to seeing your tutorial, I'd assume spawning any entity would most likely work the same.

    no, it doesn't have to be spawned by a button. that's just the example I used. Anything that can trigger an action can spawn it - triggers, buttons, timers (I would assume), etc.

    I don't think you can make the locations random, but I believe you can make multiple locations and have the map randomly pick which out of those locations it will choose to spawn. I haven't tested that yet though.

    disclaimer: I'm new to making tutorials or even talking on camera for that matter, so bear that in mind.

    I knew any trigger would work, I was just refering to the button in question. Anyway my idea didnt work out anyway. I was trying to make it so players could use an upgrade station on a non-mvm map as a gametype, but it doesnt appear to be working. I used currency_give and was able to click on the upgrades and it filled in the circles, but accept did nothing for me.

    I don't think my way would be any different since I'm pretty sure you can only use mvm stuff in mvm, but here's the HHH tutorial anyway. Maybe it'll spark some ideas.

    Im honestly not seeing why the station doesnt work. Id imagine it would since its just credits and a brush, but the credits probably only work in the mvm gametype. Dissapointing...

    Ill check that tutorial though, might give me some cool ideas.
