    OK so, its bothered me that maps involving one flag or bringing the flag to the enemy base is a simple briefcase. I came up with the idea to change that and maybe make the intelligence something a little more threatening.

    So I found, the fgd and im pretty sure Ive found what I need to copy paste and change things for the flag.

    BUT before I do this, I realize that even if I create this new entity I want to make sure I can do this without any problems and not waste my time.

    My question is, is it possible to pakrat an fgd so it can be used when entering a map? Or is this just not going to work?

    not going to work, the fgd is merely used by hammer to help you set up the properties of an entity, you'd need to modify the server dll code to create an actual new entity
