    Yes, I admit it, I was inspired by the trailer to "End of the Line."

    My problem is this: I'm trying to filter out projectiles (tf_projectile_*), but the trigger with the filter_class (with tf_projectile_* set to allow, and all the things checked, including physics debris and "everything") will only respond to rockets fired by the soldier. I COULD do a logic_filter_multi, but then I'd have to update the map every time new projectile types are added.

    The point of this is so that a soldier on the train can fire rockets and not run into them. So that demomen can actually hit what they're aiming at.

    Any help would be appreciated also in finding a good way to add the func_tracktrain's (or player's) velocity to their projectiles. Thanks!

    That's how they did they action shot of the scout on the top of the train in the trail for "End of the Line" anyway. (What Sergis is referring to)

    Because the train is going to be able to take alternate routes/fall off broken bridges/take otherwise complex turns.
