    I am making a little mini racetrack in a map. I am stuck on how to make the little cage that appears around you in doomsday_event. using TF_COND_HALLOWEEN_KART_CAGE crashes TF2 in many cases. When it doesn't crash it just doesn't work. I can't find that trigger anywhere in doomsday as well. I'd guess it's built in somehow, but I don't know.

    So what's an effective way of making a player stuck in that cage for 2 seconds?


    P.S. would I have to enable and disable that cage model? If there is a condition for it I would think it's an actual effect.

    Did you precache the model?
    Place models\props_halloween\bumpercar_cage.mdl as prop_dynamic in your map and try it again.

    Here's a video I quickly made to show it works.

    yup. I did. Not walking into this like that much of an idiot.

    I placed the spawn up in the air. When I placed the cage trigger at that point it did nothing. When I placed it on the ground and manually drove into it, it crashed TF2.

    I made a small cube map to test out the conditions with the triggers and it worked just fine.
    I'm not entirely sure what could cause your issue so sorry if this isn't super helpful.
    If you can, provide the vmf/bsp of your map so I can try it.




    I got the VMF avaliable if you want to take a look.
