    I've got some intelligence/bombs I want to be stored in crates marked with the tf2maps.net steam logo until they're ready to be enabled (at which time the crate with the logo is to disappear).

    In order to make the brush-crate disappear, i had to make it a func brush...and the overlays don't seem to appear on func brushes. The overlays appear fine if i just keep them normal brushes...but i'm not sure how to make them disappear on command if they're normal brushes...

    any ideas?

    Maybe you could make a nodraw texture, but with the logo on it? As in, the logo with a transparent background.

    Get someone to make the crates a model and put the logo in the skin?
