    a siege style map?...
    is this a map that encorporates the siege gun
    or is it a map that is based on the CS map cs_siege?

    What exactly do you mean "trigger the events"? Events to what?

    Yours Puzzled,

    Thanks to I0xox0I I know how, but to answer the question about the map style. It consists of each team having lots of res and not being able to attack for 5-7 min, then after that time a door opens lettings the teams battle it out for a fearce 8-12 more min untell another door opens letting the reans into an are were they can directly siege the alian hives.

    As for what I0xox0I said here it is:
    <!--QuoteBegin--I0xox0I+--></span><table border='0' align='center' width='95%' cellpadding='3' cellspacing='1'><tr><td><b>QUOTE</b> (I0xox0I)</td></tr><tr><td id='QUOTE'><!--QuoteEBegin-->Create a trigger_random point entity and place it somewhere. Then add in these properties with smart edit mode off:

    minfiretime <time to fire>
    maxfiretime <time to fire>
    wait -1
    myTarget value <---what to trigger on map start and on every "round"

    Also make sure that the "Start on" flag is checked and nothing else.

    <time to fire> is the actual amount of time in seconds for the target to be triggered, minfiretime and maxfiretime must be the same or you will get a random number in between.

    Setting wait to -1 tells it to only do this once.

    The value for myTarget can be left as value, it doesn't matter. myTarget is the target you want triggered after the <time to fire> has passed.

    A few tidbits of information for trigger_random:

    It will fire on map start, on every new round, and when the round is over as well. NS does not have an entity that will allow targeting on a new round so using trigger_random is about as close as you can get.<!--QuoteEnd--></td></tr></table><span class='postcolor'><!--QuoteEEnd-->

    Could you make a quick example on the door that is set on a random delay?

    I would be interested on how you do this...

    I tried using .. trigger_random -> game_text

    to show text at the beggining of the round, but it doesnt seem to fire right..

    geek(_!_): you can also use a multimanager named gamestartedstatus it will fire at teh begining of every round.
