So i am making this map with a func_train well actually im am just making a map with a bunch of funcs and other sorts of cool things to get the hang of them, (I am using func_train not func_tracktrain)so i am using path_corner but when i load the map it has moved to the path_corner but i didn't see it move and its speed is only 64 units per second so there is no way i wouldn't be able to see it moving. I also tried putting in a button to see if i could make it so it doesn't start there and i could activate it myself but that didn't work either got any suggestions?

The func_train will be automatically placed to the place where its first stop is (you set the first stop in func_train's properties). Its center will line up with the path_corner that's set as the first stop.

If you want it to move between two destinations, you have to make 2 path_corners. It will then (when triggered) go directly from the path corner that it's currently at to the one set as the 'next stop' in path_corner's properties.

So if you have a func_train and two path_corners (c1 and c2). You set c1 as the first stop in func_train's properties. Then you set c2 as the 'next stop' in c1's properties. Now when you activate the func_train, it will travel directly from c1 to c2 (the center will again be aligned with c2).
...and that's the bottom line because Mate de Vita said so.

Just make all 8 func_trains and make the path_corners for each one (one where you want it to start and the other where you want it to finish). Then call all the func_trains e.g. 'train'. Now make a button and target 'train' with it.
...and that's the bottom line because Mate de Vita said so.

Ok so i did that and when i go to test it nothing is there for some reason. Will this happen if i did something wrong? Like not even the brushes are there and you can walk where they should be.


Nevermind im a fool looking it over i totally forgot to put the first target

Check if the 'Invisible' property is set to yes. In some FGDs it is by default. If it is, set it to no.

Ok I fixed the trains but now there is the problem of the overwhelmingness of all the different rotating funcs say i just wanted to make some plats spin in a circle or spin (from the center without moving) around like a loop? which func do i use?

func_rotating if you want anything to move in circles (whether around its own center or around something else). If you want it to just rotate in place, make an origin brush (normal brush with ORIGIN texture - won't be visible ingame) in the middle of the brush. And then you need to tie both (the brush and the origin brush) to the same func_rotating.
...and that's the bottom line because Mate de Vita said so.
