CTF Tech Demo

ctfdemo.zip —


The first ever released CTF map for RtCW. This is all done via the map's script file and entity info. The source code isn't even available at this very moment. Great stuff since you don't even need to download a mod.

One note is that capturing the flag requires bringing the flag to the capture area (the light), rather than to the base flag. So, if you somehow removed the door, you can capture without having to have your flag at base. This is a limitation I cannot fix this moment with the tools I have.

* Construction *

Map base                : From scratch
Editors used            : GTK Radiant 1.1.1
Other utilities used    : GTK Build, other misc. utilities
Known bugs              : I know all the bugs, but with the tools available now, they are not correctable. Do not contact me. 

1. The two flags may change into the same colour. In-game code stuff I don't have access to. It happens when the flag carrier returns his own flag. The game thinks he picked it up. It *does not* affect gameplay.

2. If a flag gets taken, the flag carrier killed, and the flag returned in a span of 150 milliseconds, then the capture area's access will be inversed. In order to capture the flag for that team, they need to get the flag to the capture area when the flag's not at base. Until I find out how to get script_movers to work with the compiler, this seems to incorrectable.

3. Falling out of maps. Seems to be because I set the capture area door speeds too fast, but it works 99% of the time.
