CTF Flag zones

Post by Tedius » Mon Mar 05, 2007 4:31 pm

In my map I have a barrier between the teams, making it impossible for tanks to cross to their opponents side. My original intent was to make it CTF, however there seems to be no easy way to make the team flags spawn anywhere other than on the team base. Does anyone want to help me out with a plugin to create team flag spawn zones?

Any help is appreciated,
Thnx,
Tedius

Code: Select all

zone
name ragh
position <x> <y> <z>
size <x> <y> <z>
rotation <z>
safety <1> #where the team flag spawn
end
so for a red team flag:

Code: Select all

zone
name redteamflag
position 50 50 0
size 50 50 1
rotation 0
safety 1
end
etc. etc.

Safety is where the team flag will go if the team flag is dropped over a deadly object or a incline. It will not spawn there, just go there if the above is true.

I think you might be able to use normal zones for it, but I do not know.

Not quite. use the "zoneflag" parameter like so:

Code: Select all

zone
name redteamflag
position 50 50 0
size 50 50 1
rotation 0
safety 1
zoneflag R*
end
That was how I did it for Steal the Bacon games.

Brilliant!

Thanks guys. You followed my train of thought. I think I left out "zoneflag" and put "flag" instead. Either that or else I left out the * on the flag type.

I'll see you at "Sniper Country, CTF by Tedius" on a server near you...
