    How to Configure Your CTF Map
    Good news, you can all do it. Here's how.


    Sign info:

    Red spawn: {{spawn 1}}
    Red flag: {{flag 1}}
    Blue spawn: {{spawn 2}}
    Blue flag: {{flag 2}}

    Spawn box sign info:
    {{spawn_box}}
    {{caps=3}}
    {{time=20}}

    Structure restriction sign: {{restrict}}
    Structure restriction block: 97

    Soldier climbing restriction: coal ore
    No fall damage upon landing: double soul sand

    Front of sign = front of player or front of banner.
    Use solid blocks under signs. Must have different block IDs for spawns.

    Area that a single block 97 restricts:
    7x7x7
    [​IMG]

    Area that a single restriction sign restricts 3x3x3

    Versions of block 97 to choose from:

    Placement under buildings:

    Restriction sign:

    Place signs where block 97 won't fit:

    Coal ore to prevent climbing:

    Double soul sand to prevent fall damage:
    Info update regarding stacking soul sand to prevent fall damage: soul sand is still slow to run on, but carpets on top of it fix that issue. Double soul sand under carpets still prevents fall damage.
    Double stacked soul sand prevents ninja pearl damage, but only when landing on it without other people or obstacles to possibly hit.
    And it only works when the pearl lands on top of it, not when pearling into a vertical wall of soulsand.

    Update:
    Map name: CTF Spawn Boxes
    ID: 350850
    Paste your spawn box at least 60 blocks above midfield to be out of ninja pearl/mage glitch range.
    - Players can pick whichever box they prefer, new or classic.
    - Boxes are customizable.
    - Easy copy paste signs are available if only signs need updating on your map. Updated May 2017.
    - Boxes are pre-configured for sign system maps.

    I'll be giving build team members and trusted mapmakers access, contact @Xelasi, @GalaThundR, or a Build Team member if you need a box.

    I hope sharing this info helps map releases occur at a faster pace.
    Never hesitate to step up and help with things, people notice the effort.

    Thanks for stopping by.

    I actually had that issue with a version of Minecraft I was using the other day. It was either my optifine or forge client that made me unable to write on signs. Version 1.8.9 seemed to fix the problem for me.

    Also, whats the range of restriction for flags?

    The flag restriction is a 50x radius around it.
    Idk what you mean by two signs in different areas.

    I was trying to show the radius on the left and the area on the right. Just refer to the one on the right, it was meant to be two visualizations of the same concept. Sorry if I made it confusing D:

    What?

    I don't think the flag restriction distance is much more than ten blocks if it even exists anymore.
    These were maps when the last wave first released. I find it safer to over restrict flag rooms than under restrict.

    Ah... I thought the signs also did a 7x7x7 when I was building Waitomo.

    It was nice to revisit Waitomo after so long, though :smile:
