    Thanks, Here ya go. Also, if possible, there are some other things I would like to maybe be worked out.... There is a secret door as you will see, I would like that to only open when shot. The animation on the spawn doors isnt working, one doesnt even let you out. Also, im not sure about the cappoints themselves. Any help would be much apprecialted.

    You posted the .bsp which is the game file, not the .vmf which is the hammer editor file.

    I ran through it and the first thing you should work on is brush work and grid work.

    Making sure everything lines up, make sure everything is touching BUT NOT over lapping, ETC.

    Its just lighting, your area's are wicked huge and require more lights then you've put in.

    Ya, your trigger brush is a solid, not a trigger multiple, Check out this for how to make a proper door. How to make a Team Door

    Check out this. How to make a CP Gameplay It will help you with setting up the cap points.

    To go back to prior though, this is a big one. Before props, CP's, Lighting ETC. Make sure you have your brushwork and grid alignment good.

    Welcome to the forums BTW =) !!

    Check out the tutorial section and Search tool.

    I updated the VMF... and its bugging me very much. This might be too much to ask, but is there anyone who can just fix this for me? The doors, lighting, and cap points still need work, but ive tried everything and nothing is working. Please?
