Team Fortress 2 team_control_point is a point entity available in Team Fortress 2. It marks the location of where a capture point should be at, and comes with various specific configurations that determine how it should look in the world, look in the hud, what points a team must own before it's available, etc.

By itself, it is not capable of influencing the game, and requires a trigger_capture_area alongside it to allow it be captured. A single of either team_control_point_master or team_control_point_round must also exist in the map.

Note.png Note: There is a maximum of 8 control points per map!

Base:

Name (targetname) <string>
The name that other entities use to refer to this entity.
Parent (parentname) <targetname>
Maintain the same initial offset to this entity. An attachment point can also be used if separated by a comma at the end. (parentname [targetname],[attachment])
Tip.png Tip: Entities transition to the next map with their parents
Tip.png Tip: phys_constraintcan be used as a workaround if parenting fails.
Global Entity Name (globalname) <string>
When the player transitions to a new map, entities in the new map with matching globalnames will have their previous map's states copied over to it.
Origin (X Y Z) (origin) <coordinates>
The position of this entity's center in the world. Rotating entities typically rotate around their origin.
Note.png Note: Hammer does not move the entities accordingly only in the editor.
Pitch Yaw Roll (X Y Z) (angles) <angle>
This entity's orientation in the world. Pitch is rotation around the Y axis, yaw is the rotation around the Z axis, roll is the rotation around the X axis.
Note.png Note: This works on brush entities, although Hammer doesn't show the new angles.
Response Contexts (ResponseContext) <string>
Pre-defined response system contexts; Format is [key]:[value],[key]:[value],...and so on.
Tip.png Tip: Can also be filtered for or against!
Classname (classname) <string> !FGD
Determines the characteristics of the entity before it spawns.
Tip.png Tip: Changing classnames using theAddOutputinput can still influence the game's code, like making the classname match one element in the S_PreserveEnts list will make the entity persists on new rounds!
Flags (spawnflags) <integer> !FGD
Toggles exclusive features of an entity, its specific number is determined by the combination of flags added.
Effects (effects) <integer> !FGD
Combination of effect flags to use.
Hammer ID (hammerid) <integer> !FGD

Inputs

Base:

AddContext <string>
Adds to the entity's list of response contexts. Format is <key>:<value>.
AddOutput <string>

Syntax:


ClearContext <string>
Removes all contexts from this entity's list.
ClearParent
Removes this entity from the the movement hierarchy, leaving it free to move independently.
FireUser1 to FireUser4
Fires the respectiveOnUseroutputs; see User Inputs and Outputs.

KillHierarchy
Functions the same as Kill, although this entity and any entities parented to it are killed on the same frame, being marginally faster thanKillinput.
RemoveContext
Remove a context from this entity's list. The name should match the key of an existing context.
SetParent <string>
Move with this entity. See Entity Hierarchy (parenting).
SetParentAttachment <string>
Change this entity to attach to a specific attachment point on its parent. The entity will teleport so that the position of its root bone matches that of the attachment. Entities must be parented before being sent this input.
SetParentAttachmentMaintainOffset <string>
As above, but without teleporting. The entity retains its position relative to the attachment at the time of the input being received.
Use  !FGD
Same as a player invoking +use; no effect in most cases.
DispatchResponse <string> !FGD
Dispatches a response to the entity. See Response and Concept.
