    Just a quick request. Could you make a 45 degree curve for the track found in this model pack?

    If you really want it you could do it yourself quickly by just removing a few paths from one of my and making a new prefab.
    Otherwise no, I try to stick with valve stuff in my resources.

    Also, I'm open to ideas on other things to prefab. But keep in mind they need to be entity things with specific inter-connected logic that needs to be unique.

    Track prefabs: meh.
    Everything else: upstaging my own quick prefabs.
    Downloading.

    You CONTINUE to make things that make my life so much easier when it comes to mapping.

    Thank you so much!

    Boojum: Eventually are you going to just make maps for us? I mean, you already have given us the gametypes and model libraries, the FGD, and now this. Next up should be pre made control points to alter, erm, what else? :p:p

    You really do too much for us!

    Funny story there, assuming you mean the Well trains.

    That was actually the original reason I was going to do this pack, because I saw so many people asking about how to make them. However once I got into it I realized how complex the trains are to account for so many situations, and I wasn't sure if it was worth making a prefab for when there were so many variables. (one way/both ways, number of tracks, skybox meshing or no)
    So it's still mulling around in my head. We'll see if I decide to figure out a decent way to prefab it.

    Hi, I used the basic PLR setup from this library, with a couple of small modifications, in plr_lumberyard.

    I'm hoping that your recent update will fix a bug in the map; I thought I might check that this fix corresponded to my problem:

    What I've seen happening is, usually near the end of the game when the final point was about to be capped, someone blocks the cart. Then after they've blocked it and been killed, it's impossible for anyone to push the cart any more. In other words, they are no longer being registered as changes in the number of people pushing. Then the winning team has to watch, nonplussed, as their cart rolls back no matter how many people are on it; giving the opposing team as much time as they need to win the game.

    Does this fix relate to this problem?

    Also, I'm wondering -- I know you modified the numteamcappers or whatever it was entity for this library, making -1 and 0 have different meanings, if I remember correctly. Is it that you've updated this entity, and that should fix the problem?


    Cheers,

    Mokagogo

    It sounds related, but without more info I can't say whether or not it was directly the result of the bug.

    and I didn't modify any entities. I can't modify them, that's part of the game code. I can only use what's already coded in, and change what Hammer displays. OnNumCappersChanged2 is unrelated to any capping issues, though.

    Is there any chance you could elaborate on what you changed in order to fix the payload race error, please? Ideally I'd like to migrate any fixes in by hand, so I'm not copying and pasting in entities and possibly overwriting something else I already changed.

    Also -- I don't need to update the FGD in order to make use of any gametype setup changes in this release, do I?


    *edited* I may also look into removing the payload race gametype from version 1.1 and version 1.2 and doing a text diff on the vmf files. That should hopefully bring up a fairly concise list of differences.

    Ok I finally did all this, but now I got my track laid down and I went to test it and my carts wont move. I tried changing the priority to 1 but that didnt help either. its like the cart doesnt recognise that im standing by it itll trigger the health, but the hud wont display number of people(does the plr hud even show that??)
