    I have been requested by my clan to reduce my spawn time on ctf_overdose. It's a very small map and it makes sense. I tried searching and all I can find is how to make your map instant respawn. I don't want that, I just want to reduce the spawn to like 5 seconds. How can I do that for a ctf map? I know how to do it for cp maps where you can add and reduce time once a cp is capped but again, this is a ctf map. Thanks.

    You are likely better of using a SourceMod pluggin for this and just adjust the spawn times per map without modifying the bsp file itself.

    The above system will allow you to adjust the times per map or globally on your host. If you can not use a SM plugin then your likely better off finding EntED or EntSpy and modify the bsp file of the map to adjust the times to your liking and then rename the file so your clan members will download it and have the correct version.

    I dunno, if he has a small map maybe it is beneficial to modify the spawn times on his basic map, to improve public play as well as league, without people having to modify the map settings server side. It seems awefully unnecassery to need to externally modify it. So his map plays well as standard, rather than on particular servers running pluggins.

    Parameter override. You're overriding the server's respawnwavetime with that parameter.
