    I set around 100 info_player_teamspawn to any team on my map but everyone keeps spawning at only the first point. Why is this? I thought it is supposed to cycle through the spawn points.

    I think it cycles through the spawns as needed. So if you're the only player, you'll keep spawning at the first one. Try deleting the it and see where the next spawn takes you.

    i got it working. I think its not possible to set all points to any team. It appears to ignore all other spawns and just use the first one. I set the spawns to blu, then red, alternating and it worked

    I had this problem. Try making sure you have a respawn room brush on each, or try giving each a team.

    I had this problem too. I have no idea what causes it. I used a respawn room brush, all of the playerstarts had the exact same values for every property, and they were all placed 32 units above the ground and 128 units away from each other and any walls, but the RED players in my map all spawned at the same point. I eventually deleted them all and recreated them and it worked for some reason.

    The game also seems to want to use them in a sequential order, but I don't really know how you could influence this or cause it to be random, which could help for things like a deathmatch map. It would also be nice if you could have players spawn as far away from enemies as possible, but I don't think this is possible.

    you can rig the spawns to a train for custom spawning

    For parenting spawn point you have to do it manually so here how if you're interested:
    You need to press the Smart Edit button in the top right
    Then you add a new parameter parentname and then the name of the object you want it to follow
