I've set sqlite_synchronous = 0 and increased the map size / barrier size. It should remove the lag now.

Happy to see the CTF server improvements & code updates !

The CTF game type is a great idea but, the code/server was so unplayable/bugged...

Also, as we talk about the server : Maybe could we choose a new map ? The actual map was generated with one of the old boring Minetest mapgens, but maybe we could try to find a good seed with mgv7 or valley_mapgen ? ( https://github.com/duane-r/valleys_c ).

P.S : try to use letters for your seeds (e.g : seed : capturetheflag )

I'd like a map with trees and small lakes but no sea. I'd like cover and valleys for ambush. I'd prefer a C++ mapgen.

Most of the bugginess IMO is from the guns (and the occasional mis-spawning, which is a Minetest bug). If you can list what you found buggy, that would help.

The server now uses a preprocessor to cache all the settings. It basically replaces things like ctf.setting("name") with a constant.

If you can point out something specific then I will do my best to fix it. If you just mean the occasional false positive/negative or delayed reaction then i'm afraid that is partly because of how the mod works but mostly because minetest is not particularly well designed for this type of game, there will always be a trade-off between accuracy and performance.
You could experiment with different update and reload times (see config) and I wouldn't worry too much about lowering them even. The only time this mod does any 'real work' is when bullets are actually 'flying' which should be a relatively small proportion of the time.

To my mind, the best way to speed up your game is to completely strip out all that is not contributing to the game-play. With the game I was working on I took out pretty much everything and started from scratch using only a single pixel texture for all the map generated nodes, removed all the ABMs and special effects. I even took out the ability to mine (though you could dig) and gave each player a block wallet instead, very similar to openspades really. I actually wrote a simple mapgen to emulate that style too [screenshot] Overall performance was significantly improved with this stripped out version vs the stock mt_game or minimal, even with the Lua mapgen stuff.

I was also wondering why you don't consider using shooter's crossbow as a replacement for throwing? I guess it would require some adaptation but it was working rather well last time I played with it.

I think I was talking about firearms.
Shooter works perfectly.

Edit: throwing is too.

Ah, sorry, I was referring to this https://github.com/rubenwardy/capturetheflag/issues/6 I guess you've fixed it then :-)

Is there a user limit? I just got barred because "too many users"! don't you just add one to each side?

Edit: ok, 14 player limit.
Merry Christmas Everyone!!!

I've deployed the nobuild zone around the flag, and also added a server introduction to advertise the /vote_next and the server rules. People complained within the first few minutes about both :'(

rubenwardy, don't mind, people don't like changes. Don't ask me to argue, I have tons of examples :D

The no build zone and the intro message are a good idea. People complain no matter what you do.

BTW, the chests are multiplying around the edges of the map.

I saw that, KPenguin, it's a Minetest engine bug somewhere. Maybe because I'm using sqlite_synchronous = 0

rubenwardy, today when I logged in somehow a player started a fire in the forest at blue base, when the map restarted, the fire didn't disappeared and the fire continued for some time. Maybe you should make trees, and leaves immune to fire.

Ya, someone got lava somehow and poured over the back of the map. I was on when it happened.

The vote_kick is a bad idea. Players are abusing it. Players that have done nothing are getting kicked, and players that are swearing aren't. The vote_next is good but not the kick. I've seen a mod that kicks you if you swear in the chat; that would be good to install.

I like the building time before combat begins! :)

Heres a suggestion, how about adding TNT into the game? I know what you are thinking, Griefers will come and bomb and the whole server will become a fiery crater. What I think, is to make it a rare drop, and remove fire from it. That's means that TNT can be used, but not to the extent of annihilation.
It'll make it more fun, as TNT can now be used to destroy enemy forts or as landmines.

I have a better idea; make gunpowder triggered when stepped on ;)

I've removed fire and lava for now. I've added a statistic collecting mod to the subgame which will be used to make league tables.
