    hey! just wondering how do I make those spawn doors like the ones you would see on 2Fort or other official tf2 maps?

    Huh? Be more specific, please. Waaay more specific.
    A general advice: look at what you are trying it to be like and see what is making it look like that!

    If you don't want to make doors by hand, you can use the pre-made doors available in ABS's resource pack (if you haven't downloaded it already). To get to them, select the entity tool, choose "ABS TF2 - Doors" from this menu, and then choose the type of door you want from the "Objects" menu underneath.

    Then you can pick them apart to see how they work. Don't forget that you'll have to add the respawnroomvisualizers on your own.

    Except, it's much better to learn how to make them the first few times manually before relying on this method. Jumping straight to prefabs doesn't let you learn what you need to do to get them working (even picking them apart, you can easily miss something important.)
