I am working on a map and I am doing object placement in BC 2.1 (hush you!)

Team 1 is German

Team 2 is US

I am trying to set the flag so that once the US captures it the flag stay US and the flag is only captureable by the US.

Flag at control point 3 starts as neutral.

Looking on the control point template I changed "Only takeable by team" to team 2, when that didnt work I changed it to 1 and made no difference.

US captures flag and then I respawn as Germans and I can still capture the flag.

When I set "Unable to change team" to 1 neither team could capture it.

Also I have US tanks at the spawn point that I want to spawn there when the US takes the flag.

M10 is set to control point 3, team on vehicle set to 1 so only US can use it, and vehicle is selected as a object for team 2 so it only spawns for the US. The vehicle is sitting there before the flag is captured and either team can use it.

M4A3 is set to identical setup and its there before flag is captured and either team can use it.

M3 Stuart is set to identical setup and is there before the flag captured and eitehr team can use it.

M4A1 Sherman is set to identical setup and it spawns when flag is captured and the Germans are locked out.

What am I supposed to se the flag to so that only US can capture it and it wont change teams?

Why is it the other vehicles are there before flag is captured and M4A1 works as its supposed to.

This is driving me crazy!

Will do

EDIT: All they did was set the time it takes to get control to 99 seconds.

They changed it to Lose control when enemy close and changed the value to 1 but ti doesnt seem to do anything.

a brief rundown on flag template :) ObjectTemplate.create ControlPoint MYUSCAPPABLEONLYFLAG ObjectTemplate.networkableInfo ControlPointInfo ObjectTemplate.setControlPointName MYUSCAPPABLEONLYFLAG ObjectTemplate.radius 35 ObjectTemplate.team 0 ObjectTemplate.spawnGroupId 6 ObjectTemplate.objectSpawnerId 6 ObjectTemplate.areaValue 0 (this sets the value gained by capping) ObjectTemplate.timeToGetControl 15 (how long from grey to captured) ObjectTemplate.timeToLoseControl 5 (how long until flag goes grey) ObjectTemplate.onlyTakeableByTeam 2 (team 2 is allies)(team 1 is axis) ObjectTemplate.disableIfEnemyInsideRadius 0 ObjectTemplate.disableWhenLosingControl 0 ObjectTemplate.loseControlWhenEnemyClose 1 (abilitytogreyflag 0=yes 1=no) ObjectTemplate.loseControlWhenNotClose 0 ObjectTemplate.geometry flagbase_m1 ObjectTemplate.hasCollisionPhysics 1 ObjectTemplate.addTemplate AnimatedFlag ObjectTemplate.setPosition 0.000000/8.200000/0.000000 ObjectTemplate.setTeamGeometry 1 flagJp_m1 ObjectTemplate.setTeamGeometry 2 flagus_m1 to change this for the other team change this line ObjectTemplate.onlyTakeableByTeam 1 this works because flag is already grey(neutral) so allies dont need to grey the flag. they just have to capture it. but once captured the axis can't grey it, or capture it. you can set both values, "ability to grey flag" and "ability to capture flag" the iwo jima beach flag is a bad example.. it was made before certain commands were introduced. and they used 9999 seconds to grey flag, as a way to stop other team from taking flag. these commands didnt exist back then: ObjectTemplate.onlyTakeableByTeam 1 ObjectTemplate.loseControlWhenEnemyClose 1

iirc, the onlytakeablebyteam only refers to actually capturing the flag, you can still grey it out. I could be wrong, my memory has a habit of deceiving me.
