    Is it possible to make a transparent brush that one team can shoot through, but the other team can not? If it is please tell me how.

    No. That is not possible.

    You can make walls that only one team can walk through (using func_respawnroomvisualizer) but they dont affect bullets.

    When people ask questions like this i always wonder what possible affective use could they have in legit TF2 gameplay...

    This is only possible with projectiles (with func_clip_vphysics), any other stuff like bullets and flames cannot be blocked team-specific

    Though a glitchy way could be using displacements, simply make only 1 side of a brush a displacement, that way stuff coming from the displacement side will bounce into the displacement, but stuff coming from the other side will go through it
    I think this will work, as there was a glitch in gravelpit where sentries built below the displacement ground could hit people, while people above the ground could not hit it back


    Fortunately people aren't forced into playing only legit tf2 gameplay
    There's mods in which things like this can be interesting

    I think the one way displacement thing only works with hitscan, not projectiles or physics. It certainly doesn't let the player through.

    Usually when players ask for these kinds of things it's because they're trying to balance a horrible gimmick. Or they want to force one team into a ridiculous position where they get massacred by the other "because they think it will be fun". But it usually isn't and it's best to tell these people ahead of time that there are more productive things they could be doing.

    Amen Brother AMEN!

    Have been at the receiving end of this once - I think the server was alive for a day and then it was a ghosttown afterwards - people don't like being the fish in the barrel while some sick f'ker blasts away at them laughing.


    Maybe he/she should explain exactly why they want to do this sort of thing? I could understand makina a one way mirror to look through only or a one way that would break when you shoot it and thus revealing yor position but for the barrel idea - terrible.

    Possibly an extension of respawnroomvisualizer.
