What would be the prefix for a freemode map?

    Hey guys,

    I'm currently building a new map. However, it's going to be a freemode map, where players can run around and play casually in a small town-like area, perhaps capturing control points that serve no goal. Basically a community map, kind of like mario kart, except not so gay. :D

    I'm not sure what the prefix would come before the name in the file (e.g. cp_, ctf_ koth_, ect.). Anyone have a good guess?

    Thanks!

    I don't think you need a prefix.

    But it's got nothing to do with achievements or deathmatch.

    I also think the best solution is no prefix.

    Thanks guys,

    I'm looking into probably just DM, though it's not set in stone. We'll see how it goes once I have the alpha uploaded.

    When I see no prefix I immediately think pointless in a fun sorta way. Look at mariokart or cyberpunk

    not dm, unless you actually intend for the round to be over as soon as everyone is dead.
