    Hey, everybody.

    Thanks to your previous help, I was able to get my map ctf_wetwerks into a finished state. After doing some playtesting, I decided to go back and do a couple of things. I made the necessary changes and did a test run. However, I found this strange problem upon compiling both with Fast and Normal VIS and RAD.

    The intelligence's glow is visible through the wall. I've tried deleting the entities and replacing them, but that doesn't help things, either.

    Any idea why this would happen/what I can do to fix it? Thanks.

    I believe that this is a new feature that valve just updated (yesterday?). I don't think you can get rid of it.

    Oh, so it's an official feature rather than a glitch?

    Haha, this is a feature in the game, not a bug in your map. Payload carts now also do the same thing. Frozen, I think it was around months before yesterday :)

    Yeah this was added as a feature, it's the same with Payload carts now as well.

    I think this doesn't happen if you're in Spectator mode; I'm probably wrong, though.

    I don't play CTF too often, but I defiently thought that it was in a recent update notes, I know payloads been like that, but not CTF, i thought it was more recent.
