Thanks, I'll look into the error.

The env_meta not saving has nothing to do with capturetheflag itself, to the best of my knowledge.

Just to confirm, I hope you're not trying to open map maker on CTF (sub-)game. That mod has to be run from Minetest Game. So you'd have to copy ctf_map mod from <minetest>/games/capturetheflag/mods, and paste it in <minetest>/mods.

If you're lazy like me, you can get a standalone copy of the mod from CDB: https://content.minetest.net/packages/r ... dy/ctf_map. You can also install the mod from within the application, by going to "Content" tab --> "Browse online repository", and installing ctf_map from there.

Miniontoby, it seems like you weren't in a team while picking up the flag.

Updates



The latest release at the time of writing this post is v1.24.0, but there's also an impending v2.0.0 release, which should hopefully be tagged before the end of November. I'll only list the changes from v1.20.0 to v1.24.0 now:

  • Marker visibility time has been increased to 30 seconds.
  • Yearned to know the score you get for killing a certain player? The score awarded for a kill is now displayed on screen for a couple of seconds after each kill! The score awarded when picking up / capturing a flag is also displayed in a similar manner.
  • /summary now shows the stats of the current match as well. Players can switch between the current match and the previous match using a button in the formspec.
  • Reinforced cobble now also requires one steel ingot and four cobbles to craft.
  • The server status message (/status) now also includes the name of the current map.
  • Wooden tools have been completely removed, in favour of stone tools. The rationale behind this decision is that wooden tools only serve as an intermediary step in survival environments, where the player has to start with wooden tools and work their way up.
  • Indestructible snow and ice not being slippery has been fixed.
  • Damage curve, blast radius, initial velocity, and collision-checking of grenades have been improved, for added realism.
  • All unused MTG features like sapling growth and leaf decay have been removed.
  • Each map's starter items is now excluded from being registered as treasures in that map. No more cobbles in chests when you already spawn with 50 of them, for example.
  • The feedback message shown when using /report has been made clearer. Let's be real - no one's going to get back to you ever... :P
  • There's now a "Maps Catalog" (accessible by doing /maps), which allows players to browse through all the existing maps, read their licenses, view their screenshots, etc.
  • Maps Catalog support has been extended to IRC. IRC users can browse through a textual version of the maps catalog, provided they're logged in.
  • Team-chest capacity has been greatly increased, and both sections now contain 28 slots each.
  • Respawn immunity won't end when hitting team-mates.
  • The bug of grenade kills not being detected properly has been fixed.
  • Players who are healed by bandages are notified using a coloured chat message.
  • Players are now spawned randomly within the 3x3 area centred around the flag, instead of spawning at the flag every single time.

I'll post the changelog for v1.24.0 --> v2.0.0 once v2.0.0 has been released.

I don't think snow should be slippery.

I think it would be best if respawn immunity lasts no more than 5 seconds at the most.

ANAND wrote:

A better notification would be if your screen flashes blue when someone hits you with a bandage; just like when your screen flashes red when you are being attacked.

Anyway, thanks for this post. It's nice to know what's been changed.

I agree. I used to like the ice age map, but no more.

Med-kits would be better if your health does not get restored to what is was before you used the med-kit when your healing is interrupted. Instead, it would be better if when your healing is interrupted (whatever the reason), you just lose the med-kit and your health stops regenerating.

rubenwardy's server is currently at about 20+ maps (or will be very shortly).
I have an idea for a good map cycling system to make things neater.

Make it so that there are only 10 maps in the cycle at once and every time the cycle loops have one map get dropped from the end of the cycle and have another map get added to the front of the cycle.

Example: on the first loop, maps 1 through 10 would be in the cycle, on the second loop, maps 2 through 11 would be in the cycle, on the third loop, maps 3 through 12. And eventually the loop would work its way all the way through every map and repeat. But the important part is that there will be no more than 10 different maps in the rotation at once.

But i think lower respawn immunity would increase spawn killing.

And how can i set ctf up locally, just like i host a local server?

Snow has been made non-slippery again.

That's more realistic, but if someone even accidentally moves a little, they'd lose the medkit. Imagine losing the medkit when having healed only 1 or 2 HP. This isn't the best thing to happen when resources are scarce.

What are the benefits of this specific idea?

Also, related: https://github.com/MT-CTF/capturetheflag/pull/498

- *Recursively* clone CTF's repository (https://github.com/MT-CTF/capturetheflag)
- Run update.sh
- Create a new world if required, and launch CTF like you would any other (sub-)game.

We had released a minor bugfix release v1.24.1 on 2019/11/13. I know I'm late, but here's the changelog (see original changelog here):

  • Map maker: Barrier rotation and outer barrier placement issues have been fixed.
  • Crash caused by /maps_reload has been fixed.
  • Snow has been made non-slippery again.
  • Other small things in map maker has been fixed.
  • Knockback has been disabled completely, for reasons given here.

v1.24.1 contains a lot of fixes to the map maker mod, and map makers are advised to update to the latest version.

v2.0.0 is fast approaching, and the changelog is already pretty big. All aboard the hype train!

On the contrary, this is exactly what you want to happen. How many times have you started to heal, but while you are healing, an enemy is running toward you and you realize you're healing will not complete before they reach you? By the way, it's easy enough to not move when you don't mean to.

Okay guys, I've thought of a replacement for those good old apples that many players thought were too overpowered (and I admit, they were kind of overpowered).

We could have shields, which players could use to block damage during fights; and they could spawn in chests at the beginning of the match (instead of grow on trees and give you stomachaches when you use them). I don't mean that the damage blocking should work the same way normal armor does, or I would just suggest adding armor to the game.The reason why just adding armor would be no good is that all you would have to do is put it on and you would be harder to kill (no skill involved).

There may be several ways to implement such an idea so that it would not be as overpowered as apples were.

Oops... actually DragonsVolcanoDance thought of this idea!

If this sounds like a good idea I would like to here some ideas for how it might work if anyone thinks of one.
