    Can it be done? I made the map before thinking, and now I'm trying to fix the Payload HUD. :facepalm:
    The Cart will not move (on the HUD) and the base point from where it begins is Blu. So far, I have everything else is working. A friend told me that this couldn't be fixed, so I thought I would take it here to be confirmed. Thanks for comments.

    Don't do it. Your map will automatically suck. BLU always attacks in A/D, including Payload maps.

    It can be done, but other then confusing players it has no meaning. It plays exactly the same if BLU will attack RED... That concludes to this: the extra work is worth less.

    Unfortunately, it's already done. Without going back and changing EVERYTHING in my map, it will have to automatically suck. Sorry if that offended anyone. >.>

    You can use edit => replace to change en masse. Other than that, it can't be that hard to change kart triggers, team colours, etc.

    You can't change the colors of the HUD for regular payload.

    :( Oh well. Either I play the map without a payload HUD, or I have to go on mass texturing spree. Thanks all.

    Does it bother anyone else that Reliable Excavation and Demolition isn't the one pushing the explosives into Builders League United's buildings?

    not as much as it bothers me that they're both trying to blow up the same place in Pipeline.

    They're both front companies for sinister spytech megacorporations. I hardly think TF2's gameplay is representative of the "legitimate" business that said fronts conduct on a day to day basis.

    Also, the bots don't like it when you mix them up. When I tried bots for Hydro, the RED team always defended, and the BLU team always attacked. I think its the same with Payload (with one cart).

    Good point...

    We should talk to Valve about this...

    Though, the fact they are cover spytech corps... will suffice for a reasoning.

    They are mercenaries, they were both hired to blow up the pipeline. Winning team gets payed.

    I'd move around the entities and replace the textures. It shouldn't be too much work, 2 hours max.

    It worked perfectly for me, but I was building payload from scratch using decompiled goldrush.
