    I have a map idea that I want to implement. In my previous post I thought I had a solution but was just doing it wrong. Apparently not... :(

    Besides TF2 not allowing a lot of things for their engine, A lot of the ideas I had, had some sort of work around so this is my idea and I'm possibly looking for someone to help me find a solution for this.

    I have 2 sides. Side Red and Side Blue

    Each side has a:
    prison (captured opponents)
    spawn room
    capture zone
    team flag

    When you cross over to the opponents side (aka the middle of the map) you become flagged or in some way will respawn in the prison if you die on that side. If you die on your side, you will spawn back in your own spawn room.

    The prison will be locked until a team mate unlocks the prison with a triggered door from the outside. If the whole team is captured or majority of them anyways, and the other team grabs your intel, it will release the door for either 30 seconds, or until capped/returned intel.

    Now the hard part is to figure out how to get this to work. Ideas are most welcomed!

    Things I've tried:
    Assigning a Addoutput to the !activator with a targetname and when they respawn in their respawn room they are filtered by the targetname and sent to the prison. Apparently Addoutput with !activator does not work :(

    For the spawning you can just start the prison disabled and then enable it after setup time? disabling the original spawn at the same time. I don't know how to filter by where player died though.


    Everything else will be simple triggers and doors. Cool Idea, similar to a paintball game I've played.

    the only problem with disabling the main spawn and enabling the prison spawn is that if you die on your own side, you still get spawned in the prison.. or if someone new joins the server they are auto sent to the prison.. both of which are not good

    already considered that and X'ed it out instantly! :(
