How to name a map

Does anyone know how to name a map?

Atm its just AO-Hold, and other than lighing, and passive audio, and minor balancing its done.



Also, i dont know how to configure the objectives so they are hidden until triggered, and then visible to be triggered again to complete.


Edit, the idea is the team spits, one grp north one east, after the east is done, if the aliens havent overrun the north you can still win.

Also, how do you do those things that come up in chat saying things like "New objective:"?

AO-Hold-b3 Released.

Download: Filefront

The map should take around 5-10 mins to complete(speedrun set at 5)

This is a work in progress, if you want to pretend it is finished, do not touch the 4 panels floating in the control room(at the north wall).


Please read the readme, or the map is hard to understand when the last objective is not announced.
The map has not been tested on insane - so no comments about that
Please report here if there is a package missing.

Is it a hidden objective that you want, that gets ative at a certain point, or just a message?

For the messages appearing in the chat line, just use a trigger. Each trigger has the possibility to broadcast a message.

Both lightfoot. - ive tried using aotriggertrigger(i do know the correct use of this, i just didnt think it would be less effective than trigger, Ideally i would like a readable objectiveto appear between the last objwective and the second to last obj.

Mega, nah its just lack of imagination.

You could have a look at Salvage, I'm pretty sure it does all of those things.
