Hey there Guest,
The game servers have moved to semi-dedicated hardware and IPs have changed. Please see front page server widget for up-to-date game server information.

How do I make a map, where you can't play, for example, the scout?
Server's decision. You can't. And thats fair enough too imho
Well I make alot of original maps.
Trying out new ideas.
And some of them needs to change some of the base rules, such as the classes or the weapons.
Well I agree with the weapons. But I enjoy all the classes so I'm kinda happy that you can't decide that
I like all classes too, but if you play ctf_magnetic you're gonna hate the scout
Bit harsh maybe, but thats a level design fault than
How come that I would hate the scout? Im gonna try your map now than, I wanna see it.
If it would be a normal sized map, it would be a map fault.
But this is supposed to be a small melee ctf map, and scouts are just way too fast for the size of it.
so what cant scouts do?
trigger_hurt that does 125 damage (or whatever the scouts health is) right after spawn, followed by a func_regenerate, scouts will die while everyone else survives.
Can you set a trigger_hurt to only fire the damage once?
It would be funny anyway to see the scouts keep running through the invisible wall of death. lol
Unless a Medic overheals him
doesnt an engineer and a sniper both have 125 hp as well?
Easiest way to accomplish this is putting some text in the introduction screen like:
"Please don't play as a scout."
It's up to the player then to decide what to do.
That will not work at all.
I think more people would play scout because we tell them not to
Hmmm, one class, armed with flamethrowers, sticky mine launchers, healing guns, and a machete for melee. Speed of a scout, health of a heavy, and the mouth of a soldier, the classiness of a spy and the brains of an engineer...
Edit, we could name this class... "Doxites"!
just remove the scout's weapons
I played magnetic after you removed the scout's weapon and I gotta say I think it's interesting. The scout functions as a flag carrier but is defenseless. It works imo.
It' is possible to filter for classes, I've run across two TF2 maps so far that do this. I haven't figured out how they do it yet.
The 2 maps are:
There's also the option of making class based obstacles, that only one or two classes can get passed. I've been testing the idea out in a map. It's along the lines of team_trial_v3 http://www.apex-games.net/.
I did it for a duel map, its really basic.
In your spawn room place all your info_player_teamspawns, and make a wall around them (trigger_multiple) so that AFTER they move after spawning, they will touch it. Make it do output to point_clientcommand that does join_class soldier or whatever.
All of this has to be done INSIDE the spawnroom trigger
Or clone that trigger 8 times, then change them each to a class you want in your map. Then make a doorway around each of them with labels or something.
Then you can have 8 exits from the spawnroom for each class except the Scout.
Yea, only real rule is that it has to be inside the spawnroom, because if its outside, people can leave spawn as another class, and will only be switched back when they die
Separate names with a comma.
