    Hi folks, I'm currently working on an alpha version of a KotH map with Colt Seavers over at Playstuff.net & I'd like to know if it's possible to make a KotH-TC hybrid map as this is what we initially wanted to do.

    The idea is is that there are three territories: Red, Blu and neutral. The map would start on the neutral turf and much like TC if either team wins two successive rounds from the centre they win the game. If however they win the middle ground and then lose on the away turf action would revert to the middle. So basically TC but in linear sequence and with one CP per stage.

    I did do a search but didn't find a relevent thread, apologies if I've missed it. Also I'm fairly new to hammer and I'm not that familiar with the logic and gametype entities so apologies if I ask dumb questions ^__^

    Cheers.

    Yep. A TC KoTH map should certainly be possible. I don't think you could find a tutorial on it, but all you would have to do is set up your linear TC maps, but just change the win conditions to KoTH instead of normal CP.

    Fair enough I'll give that a try and report back, thanks.

    Not really sure I know what you mean UFOslava :huh:

    OK... tug-o-war is bi-directional payload... but as far as i know it only will be available with 1 stage...

    With multi-stage there seems to be issues:
    If blue wins, map advances to next stage.
    If red wins, teams are swapped instead of proceeding anyways.
    Normal pl behavior.

    Can i somehow control stage progress or do stage system manually?:)
