This tutorial will teach you how to create an area of your map have lower gravity than the rest of your map. 1. Firstly move to the doorway (entrance) of your room that you want to have low gravity *screen1* 2. Then Create two blocks with the trigger texture the hight of your doorway and half the width of your doorway. *screen2* 3. Next place the two trigger textured blocks into the doorway. *screen3* 4. Select the block that if your player walks into this room he will wall through this one first *screen4* 5. press ctrl+t to tie this block to an entity, tie this to trigger_gravity. Then leave all the properties the same on this block. 6. After that tie the block that your player will walk through last to trigger_gravity as well. You need to change one of the properties for this and its the bottom one the (gravity 1-0) 1 is default gravity so change the number to fit your liking, try 0.5.

    What if you wanted a whole map low gravity? Would the same apply except you just cover the whole map in the trigger_gravity?

    Pros: This works...see cons Cons: This works for the entire map and does not get reset and the end of the round. Improvements: A version with gravity just for the one room. Not the whole map. Notes: Test stuff first.

    Good tutorial, remember to have a non-trigger gravity area, you don't need to complete the name field of the entity. I made this error some time ago as the func_train entity. Good job th3hidd3n.
