To get flags to spawn on top of building you can either add "-fb" to your conf or world file or you can set a zone to position flags in specific spots.
If you don't know the answers to life's questions, guess.

I think that after you make the zones, you put like

-sb
or
-fb
something like that so that the flag can spawn ontop of objects.

^really helps if your coding and all that jazz

if you don't already, add a options section to your map, then put -fb to it, like so:

Code: Select all

options
-fb
end

Make sure your object has a flat surface. Flags won't land on angles.
