    Woot woot! I'm a little sad they didn't use my suggestion of having it as an option for specific flag or capture zone entities (which would have allowed for more flexible crit boost triggering), but I have no idea how complicated that could be code-wise. This is still plenty awesome.

    List of known changes so far
    Also, you can "uncraft" metal now. Breaks it down into the 3 previous types (doesn't work for scrap obviously).

    That'd be a lot more useful if it DID work for scrap. I could get back my 3 Medic items and combine them with another one to get the class token I could have gotten before, but didn't know so at the time and screwed myself out of it. :facepalm:

    EDIT: Oh, it only requires 3 of a class's weapons to get a class token now. Much better. :)

    Uncraft the higher metal and recraft using the new 2:1 ratio.

    nay that is not an exploit

    2 weapons make scrap. EVERYTHING ELSE [to do with metal] IS UNCHANGED.

    Could easily be worked around though by sending the input depending on which flag is picked up or with func_flag_alerts a little larger than the cap zone.
