This is a remake of my previous version. This CTF system uses outfits to show which team the players are on.

Check here for a list of features: TFS 1.3 Capture the Flag (https://otland.net/threads/tfs-1-3-capture-the-flag.271357/)

Key differences:
1) Outfits instead of skulls
2) Multiple respawn positions
3) Cannot attack allies
4) Cannot change outfit while in CTF
5) More testing/less bugs
6) Revscript


MAKE SURE THE CTF AREA IS NO LOGOUT

Add a file in data/libs and include it in data/libs/libs.lua

Add a folder/file in data/scripts named ctf and add this
Lua:
--- TALKACTION --
local ctfTalk = TalkAction("!ctf", "!CTF")

function ctfTalk.onSay(player, words, param)
    if param == "enter" then

            if CTF_PLAYERS_QUEUE[i] == player:getName() then
                player:sendCancelMessage("You are already queued for capture the flag.")
                return false
            end
        end
        
        if player:getLevel() < CTF_LEVEL_REQ then

    <event class="Creature" method="onTargetCombat" enabled="1" />

Let me know if there are any issues. Hope people use it.

this version was very good, congratulations for bringing so much valuable content here to the forum!

Is there any possibility of you putting these features in your 1.3 version?

CTF_GREEN_FLAGID -- should be the itemid of the green teams flag.
CTF_RED_FLAGID -- itemid of red teams flag

In the map editor add the flags where you want them. Make them have the same actionid as you put for: CTF_ACTIONID in the lib file.

Make sure the positions of the flags are added in the lib file for:
CTF_GREEN_FLAG_POSITION
CTF_RED_FLAG_POSITION

Do the same for the capture tiles. You must of missed something. If there are any errors let me know. I didn't have any problem while testing this.

Again, all flags and tiles should have the same actionid on them.

Incase you are mistaken. You control + click(use) on the flag to take it. Then walk on the tile on your side to turn it in.
You cannot walk on the tile without the flag.

event working figured out, that flags has to have free sqm arround it and you must use it in order to get not stand in the enemy spot tile
sorry @Itutorial everything is ok, my map was wrong, than you for this amazing contribution

is there a way to close the event once the players are kicked out? to close it must do it manually with the god player. can't it be done instantly?

It finishes when they capture the flag however many times you specify.

If you want a time limit then do this:

add

    end

 
    if CTF_GREEN_FLAG_HOLDER then
        local player = Player(CTF_GREEN_FLAG_HOLDER)
     
        if player then
            player:getPosition():sendMagicEffect(CONST_ME_POFF)
        end
Going through the code and testing it again. Ill let you know when I finish it.

the event is working but players are not receiving brodcasts message on event start
this mesage is not working after gm uses !ctf start aso would be good to add condition pz lock during event to prevent players log out on event i can't use no log out tile since i use 7.72

Lua:
function ctfGlobal.onThink(...)
    if CTF_STATUS == -1 then
        Game.broadcastMessage("Capture the flag is now open. Type !ctf enter to join the queue. It will start in "..CTF_CHECK_QUEUE.." minutes.", 1)
        CTF_STATUS = 0
        addEvent(checkCTFPlayers, CTF_CHECK_QUEUE * 60 * 1000)
    end

Those messages work on my end.
normal client or otc? might be my client then going to test with normal client, thank you but it's weird because it was working before
and with others events i get the message, the player recieves all message but not the global message that the event has started
@Itutorial could you give me a code to add into the script to add pzlock while players on event and remove after event ends if player get kick out?

example of globalevent messages
21:53 Zombie event will begin in 1 minute 40 seconds , Hurry up!
21:57 The map has been changed to Thais Next map change will be in 30 minutes! Type !shop list to view the items available in shop!
Post automatically merged:

this message is not being received by players does not matter if they are queued in the event or not
Game.broadcastMessage("Capture the flag is now open. Type !ctf enter to join the queue. It will start in " ..CTF_CHECK_QUEUE.. " minutes.")

Hello, can someone explain to me a little what these points mean, I don't understand, thanks

Lua:
CTF_GATES = { -- These will be removed when its time for players to run around in CTF. They should block exits/entrances --
    [1] = {itemid = 3766, pos = Position(1016, 986, 7)},
    [2] = {itemid = 3766, pos = Position(1028, 986, 7)}
}

Can you say that they are waiting points and event starts?

}

When players are teleported into the event. They should be stuck in a room or something to wait for everyone to get ready. After a certain amount of time you can remove items to let them out. Those positions and items are saying where the code should remove items.
If you don't want a waiting room, or you dont need this part of the code, just remove it.

thanks for the information, the event configured this

Lua:
CTF_TIME_LIMIT = 30 -- End CTF automatically after 30 minutes
CTF_RESTART_TIME = 1 -- Start CTF again after 60 minutes
CTF_CHECK_QUEUE = 5 -- Check CTF queue after 5 minutes
CTF_MIN_PLAYERS = 1 -- How many players must be queued for CTF to start.
CTF_LEVEL_REQ = 1 -- What level do you need to enter CTF.

and never start the event 0 errors
