Alternating Capture the Flag! (possible?)

Post by Rogo » 29 Apr 2013, 01:28

Hey all, currently I am running an iCTF server which is a ton of fun. But after talking with some people had a great idea! But would need some assistance if it is even possible.

iCTF = instagib (forced laser)

rCTF = rocket (forced rocket)

oCTF = other (other weapons/combination of weapons)

Currently i am running iCTF (although i'm pretty sure a rCTF exists. oCTF likely does not.)


What I am wanting to do is:

Server alternates with each map between ictf,rctf,octf. This could be a forced rotation or a vote? I think it could add a ton of fun to my server! if anyone is familiar with scripting and would be interested in helping me out, please be in touch!

Perhaps just modifying the current iCTF and adding a section for other weapons and how they enable? like I said... not good with this scripting stuff and don't understand how it works. But some of you are amazingly talented in the area! If you have questions or need more info just ask :-)

in my InstaDM mode it's possible to define the weapon with a script setting, so you can run any laser, rocket, nucleus or arrow deathmath with ease
it wouldn't be such a big deal to implement that in CTF as well, even though i would prefer that the creator of the mode itself is doing that

    Thats good to hear means it may be possible. Would it allow ALL weapons forced. so some maps all laser, some maps all rocket, and some maps open to selection? That is my ideal goal.

    yep, in InstaDM the weapons are forced by the number defined in the script setting, like that:
    1: Rocket
    2: Laser
    3: Nucleus
    4: Arrow
    other: random

    a free selection for each player would need a bit more effort but is possible as well
    and you want to be able to define which weapon will be used while building the map? also possible but more extensive

      Some people are waaaaaay to talented, such as yourself :-)

      I just want it to alternate map to map. it can be a defined order, set order or a vote at each map... just think it would be a cool variable to be able to alter. Emailed Mewin (wrote the script I am using, hope to hear from him!)

      rCTF would be awesome! :D

      One of the first mode i got addicted to on SM was iCTF, but i never saw any servers running it since then! :cry:

      If you are NA keep you should join us sometime. Server will sit empty but if you can get 2-3 people in there, more will show :-) It's one of those games that takes a little time to populate.

      The good news is we run a lot of small maps that are great for 2v2!

      Just search Crit

      We are also hosting a tournament if you want to scramble a team together. Maps are submitted by other community members, a "contest". Hate to advertise in this thread, but I suppose it semi fits.

      www.crit-gaming.com for more info!

      I really hope we can get rCTF up and running and rotating with iCTF (still no word from the man who made the script we run though)

      Hey guys,
      I altered the mode a little so you can setup weapons at the server settings and I am working on the possibility to allow mappers to chose which weapon a player should receive for each spawn. Random weapons will be added too, but I don't think you will be able to chose the weapon as Nadeo does not allow me to change the weapon for spawned players :/ . If someone knows how to do this, tell me please ;)

        This game needs WAY more people playing CTF. I hardly ever see it played...
