    Ive gone over the forum and played with game_score my self and it seems that points will not go directly on to a player only kills or if set to team points. So in that sense i need an idea for something that gives u points for finishing 3 different sections. Something to be put in to consideration is that everyone one is on blue, there is no red team. So a cp wont work in many ways, flags wont work becuase i wouldneed multiple ones... i was thinknig of creating dispensers to destroy with quick respawn and limited ammo to users to the ammount of how many points i want them to get. but that sounds lame. any ideas

    You could set the cps to reset after they're capped?

    I'm a little confused. What are the points for? Are the BLU players competing against each other? If not, you don't really need points to begin with. More info about the game mode you're working on would be useful.

    Put in a match_counter, and count the number of times it gets capped, then switch to the next area when it hits the limit.
    EDIT: oh, and if you want to prevent players repeatedly capping it, just add a trigger_hurt with 2000 damage, which is triggered on and then off when the cp is capped.

    yeah that might work. but i dont want players to accidently kill themselves.. and having to cap 5 times or more to get the amount of points i want to give them is a little impractical. Pity hammer has to be so retarded.

    You're being really unclear here. First of all, you can alter the number of points a capture point awards you. Secondly, you could use a trigger_teleport instead of a trigger_hurt, if you don't want to kill them.
