« on: April 23, 2017, 02:17:32 PM »
Here is a Example of what a Police Checkpoint should look like

- One Entrance is blocking cars, and the other entrance is to let people through. You can block the entrance on the right with a fading door & keypads 
- The players must be able to jump over the Barrier. You can also use keypads and fading doors for blocking cars.

Your checkpoint dosent have to look exactly the example shown below, it just has to follow the rules of making one.
