Hi, ive been trying to do some things which to be honest I don’t know if its possible to do so I was thinking id post what im trying to do on here and if know-one thinks its possible ill abandon the ideas.

The things I am trying to do are:

  1. Have an emplaced_gun entity that can be controlled from another location so the player presses a button in the map and is able to control an emplaced_gun that is on the other side of the map. - I have no idea how I would do this or if its even possible, I tried targeting the emplaced_gun with a function_static but that did nothing.
  2. create a misc_weapon_shooter that will fire at a vehicle when a button is pressed by giving the vehicle entity a targetname and making it the misc_weapon_shooter's target. - I have tried this but it shoots upwards at a 45 degree angle no matter where the vehicle is.
  3. Link two emplaced guns together so that the player can control both at the same time. - again all ive done is tried targeting one to the other but to no avail, although I haven’t tried to hard since I don’t even know if it can be done.
  4. Is it possible to use vehicles in capture the flag mode? ive set all the keys for team ownership, useage e.t.c but no matter what i set them to (0, 1 or 2) they always show up as enemy vehicles in Capture the flag mode.

Well that’s it, if anyone can give me some insight as to whether imp banging my head against a brick wall with these ideas or not id be very grateful.
