This tutorial will walk you through what you need in order to a make with the following work correctly: -2 Bases with Respawn Areas -2 Flags and 2 Capture Zones -2 Forward Bases with Respawn Areas -1 CP to control Forward Spawning and Flag Capturing Now, this setup may seem a bit odd, and at first, you may not understand why you would set it up this way, however, this tutorial will explain the gameplay involved with this setup. Before we continue, consider the following as your standard layout: [Red Respawn=Red Flag/CapZone]<->[Blue Forward Spawn]<->[Central CP]<->[Red Forward Spawn]<->[Blue Flag/Capzone=Blue Respawn] On a map layout such as this, initial fighting will focus in the center for control. Once control is taken, in this example by Blue, then Blue will by forced into an Offensive and Red will be forced into Defensive. At the same time, however, Blue's base will be very vulnerable, thus making it more difficult to capture the flag. If at any time should Red take the CP, then the roles of each team will be reversed. Alright, down to making this work. I'd hope that by this far into the tutorial, I've scared away anyone who hasn't made a map before, and for those of you stubborn enough to continue reading, I'll refer you to what you should know in order to set this up beforehand. First, you can either design your map and then place everything mechanics related on that map, or, you can start off doing so. In any event, I assume you'll set up at least Four complete Respawn Rooms accross the map. Please refer to http://developer.valvesoftware.com/wiki/TF2/Creating_a_Spawnroom for a complete guide to making a fully functional respawn room. Once this is laid out, next thing you want to do is make a flag and a capture zone in each base. Please read this tutorial for setting those up: http://developer.valvesoftware.com/wiki/TF2/Flag_Based_Goal_Systems And finally, I want you to follow this guide for creating only one CP in the center of the map: http://developer.valvesoftware.com/wiki/TF2/Creating_a_Capture_Point Once these are placed, we're going to assign these values to each (leave any unassigned values at the default unless you know what you are doing): Blue Base Respawn Area: Func_Respawnroom - Name - Blue_Spawn Team - Blue Start Disabled - No Info_Player_Respawn - Blue_Spawn_Props Team - Blue Start Disabled - No Func_Regenerate - Name - Blue_Resupply Team - Blue Associated Model - Blue_Locker Prop_Dynamic - Name - Blue_Locker Blue Flag/Capture Zone: Func_CaptureZone - Name - Blue_Capzone Start Disabled - Yes Team - Blue Item_Teamflag - Name - Blue_Flag Game Type - CTF Team - Blue Start Disabled - Yes Red Forward Spawn: Func_Respawnroom - Name - Red_Forward_Spawn Team - Red Start Disabled - Yes Info_Player_Teamspawn - Name - Red_Forward_Spawn_Props Team - Red Start Disabled - Yes Assosciated Control Point - Center_CP Func_Regenerate - Name - Red_Forward_Resupply Team - Red Associated Model - Red_Forward_Locker Prop_Dynamic - Name - Red_Forward_Locker Central CP: Trigger_Capture_Area - Name - Center_CP_Capzone Control Point - Center_CP Can Red Cap? - Yes Can Blue Cap? - Yes Prop_Dynamic - Name - Center_CP_Prop Team_Control_Point - Name - Center_CP Blue Forward Spawn: Func_Respawnroom - Name - Blue_Forward_Spawn Team - Blue Start Disabled - Yes Info_Player_Teamspawn - Name - Blue_Forward_Spawn_Props Team - Blue Start Disabled - Yes Assosciated Control Point - Center_CP Func_Regenerate - Name - Blue_Forward_Resupply Team - Blue Associated Model - Blue_Forward_Locker Prop_Dynamic - Name - Blue_Forward_Locker Red Flag/Capture Zone: Func_CaptureZone - Name - Red_Capzone Start Disabled - Yes Team - Red Item_Teamflag - Name - Red_Flag Game Type - CTF Team - Red Start Disabled - Yes Red Base Respawn Area: Func_Respawnroom - Name - Red_Spawn Team - Red Start Disabled - No Info_Player_Respawn - Blue_Spawn_Props Team - Red Start Disabled - No Func_Regenerate - Name - Red_Resupply Team - Red Associated Model - Red_Locker Prop_Dynamic - Name - Red_Locker Aight, now that we have all the entities set up with the proper values, we're now going to go back to the Center_CP_Capzone entity and assign the following outputs: OnTeamCap1 - Center_Cp_Prop - Skin 1 OnTeamCap1 - Red_Spawn_Props -Disable OnTeamCap1 - Red_Forward_Spawn_Props - Enable OnTeamCap1 - Blue_Spawn_Props - Enable OnTeamCap1 - Blue_Forward_Spawn_Props - Disable OnTeamCap1 - Red_Spawn - Disable OnTeamCap1 - Red_Forward_Spawn - Enable OnTeamCap1 - Blue_Spawn - Enable OnTeamCap1 - Blue_Forward_Spawn - Disable OnTeamCap1 - Red_Flag - Disable OnTeamCap1 - Red_Capzone - Disable OnTeamCap1 - Blue_Flag - Enable OnTeamCap1 - Blue_Capzone - Enable OnTeamCap2 - Center_Cp_Prop - Skin 2 OnTeamCap2 - Red_Spawn_Props - Enable OnTeamCap2 - Red_Forward_Spawn_Props - Disable OnTeamCap2 - Blue_Spawn_Props - Disable OnTeamCap2 - Blue_Forward_Spawn_Props - Enable OnTeamCap2 - Red_Spawn - Enable OnTeamCap2 - Red_Forward_Spawn - Disable OnTeamCap2 - Blue_Spawn - Disable OnTeamCap2 - Blue_Forward_Spawn - Enable OnTeamCap2 - Red_Flag - Enable OnTeamCap2 - Red_Capzone - Enable OnTeamCap2 - Blue_Flag - Disable OnTeamCap2 - Blue_Capzone - Disable These outputs basicly determine the rules of the entire map, and it is imperative that you get all of these values correct in order to have a working map. Theoretically, you can use this setup with multiple CP's, but for each CP, you need to add about another 24 values to each. The order those points are captured in will determine where a team will spawn at, where the values on each cp will disable all the other spawn areas while at the same time enabling the spawn area associated to it. I assume that by using logic entities, you can instead of enabling/disabling the flags and their capzones, send information to a logic entity, and it will determine whether a team can capture or not (assuming they have all the CP's, for example). Also, I assume that by using Trigger_Proximity ( http://developer.valvesoftware.com/wiki/Trigger_proximity ), you can define the effective areas of a respawn room, whereby the play will respawn at the closest respawn room on their death. This will need to be covered in another tutorial, however. Anyways, I hope this tutorial will be of help to all of you looking to add control points and multiple respawn areas in a CTF based map.
