    So I'm making a player destruction map, and I was wondering how to get the outline that you see around a object (like you see in Watergate with the outline around the alien spaceship for example). Any help is always appreciated.

    I'm pretty sure it uses a tf_glow entity, and I think you can do something similar (though much more hacky) with a team_train_watcher (which also adds a spectator camera to the object)

    Thanks for the help. It worked, but I want the object that has the outline to be projected in the skybox. It only projects the outline around the object itself, not in the skybox. Any ideas on how to make that work?
