Is there a way to make nali cows that have just been spawned (anywhere in a fully pathed map) gather at a certain point?

Basically they're just supposed to be in the way. But blowing them up to get past them is one of the possibilities.... :D

i think there was a keypoint like fearspot or something, you could surround the cows with them so they all collect in the middle

Hehe there aren't as many cows in my map as in the redeemer pic, but there are a lot of 'em. :p

Fearspots can scare cowards away, but bots ph33r them as well! :( I was hoping there was a way to attract cows to a certain point, instead of making it less attractive to stay... :hmm:

I did notice that the cows spawning near the redeemer or invisibility clutter around them, while the cows spawning in an area without pick-ups just graze around aimlessly.

Hmmmmmmm now I think of it, mabey the fearspot is the way to go after all... I could subclass it and make only cows ph33r it... maybe that works! Excellent idea bobtheking! :tup:

If you want to search for it, it's under Triggers, not Keypoint.

I bet AlarmPoints would do the trick, although you might have to play around with them a bit.
