    Being that I am a novice/ noob/ idiot of a mapper/someone who thinks he can just get into mapping without really any foresight, I am not so experienced in the world of entities.

    Alright my idea is to try and create a Territory control map with a center control point so that each round plays out similar to a three cp map.

    I have used the awesomesauce entity prefab... thing and have fiddled around with it for a while and have found that surprisingly, just putting a cp there and trying to just put the cp's name in a bunch of other entites doesn't seem to work.

    Some instruction would be nice being that at the moment, I have no real idea of what the hell I am doing.

    if you are just starting out, i would recommend something simple to start. maybe a koth/arena map or maybe a ctf.

    I suppose, however my problem exists that I have an urge to innovate when innovation in not required. I suppose what you suggest would be in my best interest, but to pique my curiosity, would there be any real way to do this?

    There's a limit of 8 cap points in a map, so I don't think what you intend is possible.

    Hastily drawn image (I know it's incoherent)

    It's really just one point in the center in which every round would go through.
