I wanted to make an elevator basicly. The building its in has 4 floors and I wanted to make 4 seperate triggers to choose which floor. It doesnt need to have doors though, just a brush that goes up and down.

Can somebody tell me how (kinda step by step) to do this? Assuming I have the elevator brushes set up, and no triggers yet.

Yeah, like a real elevator. 4 seperate buttons that take you to different floors.

Maybe you should make four different elevators,one on each floor and put 4 seperate and if you want labled buttons in the elevator so that when you push it you get teleported to each floor.

I duno. Somebody tell me how to make a trigger that moves a brush to a certain point on the z axis. If i can do that then it should be easy (just make 4 triggers).

But I don't have any idea how triggers function in hammer.

Edit: see my idea is to have a in an elevator shaft. The shaft has a couple climbing surfaces, and the roofs of the elevators are breakables. There is a button in the elevator that stops it and a room that has 'electricity control' that can turn off the elevator. Thats really why i wanted to make it a single elevator.

EDIT: just think I cant have breakables move, so im just going to have a hole in the roof of the elevator

Something like that ;) you need to link them by... actually it is too late for me to express anything other than basic emotions (we're talking low mammal/reptilian) so if you search Google for "CS tutorial triggers" there will be far more reasoned webpages around than whatever I can dribble out.
