CTF scoring?



  • can anyone enlighten me how scoring is done in CTF

    how much do u get for a cap?
    are there bonusses for defending/attacking
    grabbing the flag?
    killing the flagcarrier and returning?
    do you get extra points for killing someone near the carrier?
    or for someone that has recently damaged the carrier?

    some info would be nice because i couldnt run CTF local and trying to figure it in the middle of a game is painful

    thankyou



  • Barely anything, which I think needs to be fixed. I believe you get 5 measly points for capping the flag lol

    That’s about it.



  • ok thx for the reply, btw i liked u better without the beard
    (or without anything for that matter but that is pushing the forum rules probably :D )

    can i turn my questions into suggestions then? :)

    speaking of which

    i think the flaghud isnt very clear (which side is which)
    and a clear (persistent) message/icon saying agatha flag taken or agatha flag home
    also i would like to see a name who is holding the flag in the hud somewhere

    and do i get it right that the flag gets returned immediately?
    because i have yet to see a flag lying around
    i thought there was talk about flagtimers?

    ok im asking alot but its a work in progress i gather so i assume any suggestions are welcome 8-)

    edit: i think i just qualified for another forum i dno

    Heresy!

    That is Kimibeard’s Chivalry face.

    Whenever you die to her in-game, that’s why, the beard commanded it.



  • well i thought in my current state i would fall for any female but i think ive decided to draw the line at beards



  • Thank you. I hate the beard too :< I need to remove this crappy avatar.

    DONE.

    DONE.

    Why do girls always use images of their face when every single other person has an appropriate “avatar”?

    Purely for shock value. Plus, who says it’s really me? Or that I’m really a girl? o.o

    I always imagined you with a beard tbh.



  • just to add

    apart from the much needed text info on your screen (not the obscure one in combat chat)
    some sounds would also be nice

    like: agatha/mason flag taken/ dropped /returned/captured
    or some music on a cap or an alarm sound on a grab like in quake2

    check this oldschool stuff for an example, especially take note of the flagsounds

    You’re incredibly off-topic and you know it :P

    Bad mod!



  • @The:

    - CTF: It’s fine but it needs some better information display. A message in the center of the screen when your team took the flag or when the enemy did, and when it’s captured. Also a simpler score display, like 1-3 on top of the scoreboard instead of those thousands nobody understands.

    Wrote that in a needed changes list thread, too lazy to rewrite.



  • id love to see the score on the hud not only on the scoreboard

    similarly ‘time left’’ should also be on the hud
    and which player is holding the flag

    basically there needs to be a hud to give good info
    ok its probably not that easy to implement, but its one of those things that makes something good excellent

    something like: playerA || 7min43 || Home || 1-1

    on the top/bottom of your screen with proper coloring red/blue
    meaning playerA has the red flag with 7min and 43 secs togo and the blue flag is home the score being 1-1

    or something similar
