    I basically want to make a level that is enclosed in a 6 sided cube. Although, the cube can rotate, making the roof become the ceiling. I liked the idea from the game "Blast Chamber". If you don't know this game here is the trailer: [ame="http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WidrwICJ1jM"]YouTube - Blast Chamber game demo video from Activision[/ame]

    Let me know if you have some idea's on how to approach this. Thank you.

    I have no idea about how it'll work but i can tell you it's a good idea and that unless you turn noclip on and freeze the players (somehow) during the rotation which would involve a door_rotating and a timer telling it to rotate every minute or so, the players will die or rage quit :I

    There is already a map like this, I believe. It was in one of the 2f2f videos. I you want it to rotate when a player goes near, then it is possible, but, impossible in multiplayer.

    It's probably a giant func_door_rotating, maybe with a playerclip that doesn't move so that nobody gets crushed.
