Creating a Teleporter
Tutorial by Buck Nasty
For the video tutorial click here

What you will need:
1 brush
1 info_teleport_destination

Before we start, Place your entity(s) and brush(es) in the locations where you would like them to be.

Step 1
- Select your "info_teleport_destination" on the grid, right click it and select "Properties"
- Select the "Name" entry in the window and name the entity to your liking. (See picture below)

- After you have done this, hit "Apply" and contine to Step 2.

Step 2
- Select your brush, texture it will the "tools/toolstrigger" texture.
- Now, while your brush is still selected, right click it on the grid and hit "Tie to Entity"
- A window will pop-up, click the drop down bar and select "trigger_teleport" (See picture below)

- After you have selected "trigger_teleport" your window will look like this...

- The ONLY entry that you will have to edit is the "Remote Destination" entry.
- Select "Remote Destination" and enter the name of the "info_teleport_destination" in the box to the right. (See picture below)

- After you have entered the name hit "Apply", compile your map and test it out.

NOTE: Due to the new CSS update, you must go into the teleport properties and under the flags tab check "Clients" for them to work.

i just wanted to know is there a way to make people land with a complete stop without putting a small barrier around the floor because when i did it on my map i teleported and flew right of the platform \

and is it possible to make one trigger go to multiple destinations like 2 or 3 spots next to each other so that if 2 people go in to the teleporter they don't get stuck in each other

sorry for the weird english but dont know how to write one of the words  \

Make it so you can't surf through the inital teleport. Make it a door with a barrier infront or something. Then you'd stop dead when you go through the teleport.

If you would like to ensure that users do not go flying out of the teleport: Make a box around the top half of the teleport destination. Hollow it out to a small thickness and remove the bottom so that the user can slide out. (The popular texture for this is playerclip, solid to players, nonsolid to objects, and nonvisible) The user will fly into this clip and fall directly into the water or whatever area you have specified (examples of areas like this are in maps such as 10x_final, when you land in jail and you just fall straight down). Note, make sure the player clip box is open enough around the teleport destination, leaving room for the player to fall through, or else the user will get stuck in the clip!

If you would like to teleport to multiple destinations: There are two ways that I kow of doing this. The first way is the annoying way of actually clipping the trigger into multiple brushes, and setting each clip to teleport to a different destination. An easier way of doing this that actually works, view this topic.

switch from groups to solids, and select only the bottom after it's hollowed.

Not really.  Objects can be put into logical groups (by selecting multiple objects and grouping them).  Selecting objects/solids merely ignores groupings, while ungrouping destroys groups.

although ungrouping is necceary for non world entities like triggers and such.  But yes if you are messing with world brushes you can ignore group

Not really.  Selecting object will select the whole entity, but selecting solids will always select only one brush.

To select a part of a group I typically use the 'ig' button in the top toolbar. Problem with this is if you leave it on and move around your brushes tied to entities, the little entity dot doesn't stick with the brush. I haven't encountered a situation where this is a problem, but it could be. Maybe.

How would I go about forcing a player to teleport in one place, and forcing his opposition to another place using the same trigger?

For example, I want a trigger that teleports a CT to a specified location, and a T to another specified location, but I want it to be one trigger, like if you fall from surf, you are teleported to jail.

I know how to do it with two teleporters that are filtered, but I bet sintax error has some amazingly clever solution using two point teleports, a trigger teleport and a logic case and maybe some filters.

Have one enabled, make that go to A. Give it a 'OnStartTouch Disable Itself(name it)' output and have it OnStarTouch enable the 2nd trigger.

1.    add 2 filter_activator_classes, name one terrorist and the other counter terrorist
1a.  under the team name or something like that choose t for terrorist and ct for counter terrorist

2.    Make 2 teleports and choose the filter from the drop-down-menu in the options.

hmm, my teleporters work, i covered the floor so it teles the player back to start, but when you land on it from high you still hit the ground.. like it has a delay or something, it will kill you but it works (if i'm walking on it or nofalldmg is on). whats with that? the trigger is not touching the surface, idk what i can do besides adding nofalldmg XD

Sometimes the trigger can't be so high. Using damage filter might be a good idea, sometimes making the floor func_illusionary and placing the trigger inside it can also be useful.

yeah i actually have holes in the floor so if i make it high it will be like in lithium where you are a good height above the edges but still teleported, func_illusionary would be cool though.. i will set nofalldmg but i just don't like to hear that sound every time you fall xD. thanks~~~~

is there really a difference between using info_teleport_destination and info_target?

or just that it is easier to use info_teleport_destination because it uses a playermodel...
I don't want a signature
