    Hello! I've been into mapping for 2 weeks now on and off, and once I got the basics I moved from Hl2 base to TF2 specifics. While using tutorials and checking with the prefab from the pack, the triggers seem to not making the door open. I have included a vmf to see if anyone from this lovely community could help me.

    Your door logic is good, but for some reason I could only get the door to open after compiling a second time. Perhaps try compiling again and see if it works.

    You also had a leak in your map (gaps to either side of the cobble brush above the door) and the trigger is not quite big enough for a standard door (I kept running into the door before it fully opened, as a scout). These aren't related to your problem, but I want to mention them so you don't make such mistakes in your actual map.

    Depending on where the leak is, perhaps something vital to the door is leaking and causing it to not actually be in the map on compile? I've seen it happen with props before, I suppose it could do it with other things?

    I changed nothing between the first and second compile, yet the door suddenly started working. Both times it was an info_player_teamspawn that reported the leak. Could it have really affected anything differently between the two compiles?

    Okay so it seems I am mistaken, the problem IS the leak. I just tried compiling a newly re-downloaded vmf, once without a cordon, and once with. showtriggers did not reveal any door triggers with the leak in place, but they were there in the cordon compile. So if you patch up the leak, your door should work fine.

    Alright, thanks for the responses. I didn't notice that leak, good eye, and cleared that up and just for now I have enclosed the whole two rooms with a hollowed brush. I also moved the spawns a little farther from the wall just in case. Oddly enough, even by copy and pasting and Ctrl+F there was no recorded leak. Sorry to post something that generally could be fixed easily, and I'll keep a better eye out for those little spots next time and see what I can do to fix those up. Thanks for your time, guys.

    Stupid questions dont exist in this sub forum. Dont think your problem is to small to ask for help.

    i'm pretty sure he's saying don't be afraid to ask "stupid questions". It's not very relevant, but it didn't seem like a complaint to me

    Yeah, just a misunderstanding.

    @Cox please don't backseat moderate. If you think there is an issue, please report it and staff can sort it out.
