I am making an SP map in which there are multible floors in buildings i would like to reach by elevators. The floors range from 3 to 5 floors and I would like to make a single elevator in each building reach each floor in that building. I have read deisel's tutorials and found nothing suggesting multi floor elevator or func_plat. If there is a way, please let me know.(p.s.-the map/mod is based on a post apocolyptic earth(like blade runner or the year 2020) So i would like to use multibrush elevators and not warps or stairs) Thank you for your time.

Maybe you could use a func_train, that'll stop at multiple locations.

Yes, but does'nt func_train have to be in continuous movement, as apposed to func_plat where it only works by tigger or proximity? Also, I beleive func_train has to be in a loop to use, and I am not sure how to loop an acute verticle platform, Thx for the suggestions though.

I have managed to get the elevator to loop and stop ( seconds) at each floor. Yet I still cannot manage to get the triggers to summon the train. I have created a trigger connect to the brush on the first floor, than copied it to each additional floor. Maybe I did not put in the right command? Thx

Yes< I have tried using a func_plat with switches, but the plat will only pause at the ground floor and the top floor...if you are on the second or third floor, ect. The plat will(regardles of what floor it is at) go directly to the floor i am summoning it but will not pause to allow me to get on, thusly, if i try to enter the elevator at any other floor other than the ground floor or top floor it is possible it could damage the player. Thx

Scripts... I know it's hard, but that trick can be done only with script...
