    I was wondering if it's possible to make a trigger only trigger if a person carrying the flag walks into it?
    Could I parent something to the flag?
    Use a filter for a name and filter for the intel?
    I have tried both of those but neither worked.

    I've already tried that but it didn't work. Any other ideas?

    Make sure ur trigger_multiple flags set correctly. They default to clients only.

    The item_teamflag does not have trigger interaction. If you really want to do this the best approach depends on the desired use of it.

    Well, I want to make it so that when the flag enters a trigger, it shows a message saying where it is in the map. How would I do that?

    yeah, but the problem witha prox trigger is that is covers a circular area so there will either be blind spots or overlapping spots.
    But no worries, ABS came up with a solution. But thanks to those who tried.
