Okay, I am currently working on a CTF Multiplayer scenario, in which I try to simulate the ways of Halo's CTF (Now don't ask for screenshots, please just look at my other post which asks for help on that subject--please post info there). I have the entire map laid out, I just cannot figure out how to set it. Here's how it goes:

Map Size: Normal
Editor: Reyk's 9.5
Map Description: It's level mostly made up by the "Wilderness" and "Dark Woods" custom forest mods (if you don't have this mod--download it IT IS AMAZING), and has a large lake in the middle of the map. Surrounding the lake are trees, and on either side of the lake or you, your allie's, and your enemy's bases. Now, there is a rased platform in the enemy's and your base with the Folstag Flag on it. That would obviously serve as the Flag for my scenario. Now, I plan to use Triggerwork and set it so that--if you come into a certain radius of the Flag, your person turns into a Folstag Flag Bearer. Once this happens, a Spoofed Chat Trigger will fire, indicating that the enemy/your ally has the Flag--as in Halo's CTF. The scenario has a time limit of 30 minutes, and after the first 15 minutes, a message will appear proclaiming that 15 minutes remain. After five more minutes, another message will appear proclaiming 10 minutes remain, and then five, and then it will do a countdown on the last minute. There is no way for a person to be "defeated" in this game: After your person gets defeated he will respawn 10 or so seconds later. This is a four-player Team CTF scenario, enabling you to have one side go in and steal the flag, and the other player stay back and guard the flag. Once your unit has the Flag, he is required to return to his flag pedastal to score a point. If that player's Flag is currently in the enemy's hands, the person cannot score until it is either taken to their base, or returned to your base. Just like Halo!
Problem: Pretty cool, eh? Well, there's only one problem: I cannot figure out how to set it so that once you come into a certain radius of the Flag your unit turns into the Folstag Flag Bearer. I also don't know how to put the Trigger into effect that makes it so that once the Flag is returned to you Flag Pedastal, the flag returns to the enemy's base and your team scores a point. I also don't know how to make that unit turn back into a normal unit again (the Folstag Flag Bearer is under Embellishment, you see). I do have a Day/Night Cycle in here, but other than that, I don't have much. Don't get me wrong, I've got a cool opening Cinematic that changes Pitch and such, and I am not to rusty with the other Triggers, but if someone could just help me out here, that'd be great.
