How does Capture the Flag and King of the Hill work in Zero-K?

CTF has flag structures, you must make a unit reach the target flag structure, then make that unit retreat to your flag structure. the target flag structure may be one or more neutral buildings in the middle of the map.

KOTH works like KOTH, the timer towards victory counts down only when the hill zone is clear of all enemy units.

- Capture The Flag:
https://github.com/ZeroK-RTS/Zero-K/blob/master/LuaRules/Gadgets/capture_the_flag.lua
From line 15 on there is description about gameplay.

But note the "enabled = false", so it seems currently not playable.


- King of the hill:
https://github.com/ZeroK-RTS/Zero-K/blob/master/LuaRules/Gadgets/KotH.lua
Beside the usual startboxes for the teams, you need to add an extra box.
The extra box defines the hill-area that you have to control by being the only player with units inside. After controlling the hill-area for a set time, you win.
To enable & config this gamemode, you must set some modoptions. The excact !commands for that I do not know, if in doubt send !help to the autohost or look in:
https://github.com/ZeroK-RTS/Zero-K/blob/master/ModOptions.lua
Seems you want zkmode="kingofthehill" to enable, from line 80 on are the options.

(or maybe zKL has better modoptions GUI, not sure?)

But also note comment in gadget which says:
"Set up an empty box on Spring Lobby (other clients might crash)"
So seems not like it is officially supported...

They do not work as far as I am aware and are likely to be removed in a future cleanup.

king of the hill works, we have maps ready for that, but ctf needs to be called capture the eggs and u know they spawn different places, like burrows and player get the commander and only the commaner to get them.make it precious that commander survives. and i commander gets killed that player gets eliminated.even the game contues. new badges. hell guys we should make it more interesting in this. adda mode where ctf and chicken fights in the same game. and add a ctf with there is no eggs but an aliena rtifact and commanders get to carry them. anytype ;D.

MXrankmoleculeman88 I didn't understand a single word of your post...

DEranksnoke the point is.... You made a post that meant nothing, at least to me, thus pointlessly bumping 4yo post... If U had a point, you could at least express the meaning of necromancy

a minimum of punctuation and commas please, this would make your posts more readable.

You do understand that this statement is untrue? Let's compare.

You failed at that.

Granted, PLrankFailer overused ellipsis. That's about all I can complain about with PLrankFailer's post. Your post is literally unreadable. It lacks basic punctuation and has some critical errors in it. I had a hard time understanding what you were trying to convey.

There, two can play at that game.


If you're going to call him out on his grammar, at the very least make sure you don't misspell "grammar". Compare these two and you'll notice that after corrections, it is indeed more readable.

I'm astonished.

MXrankmoleculeman88 , why all the hate? I don't even recognize your nick, nor had any interaction with you before (at least non I can remember).

Just leave it be, better focus all the time you wasted on this pointless matter on something else, something that actually changes your life maybe?

There's nothing to argue. Your posts are objectively hard to read. Everything blends into itself and presents itself as a big block of text with no structure or organization. All we are suggesting:

1. When creating a new idea, create a new paragraph.
1a. After each sentence, ask yourself "is this related to the first sentence?" If not, new paragraph, new line x2.
1b. Try to keep paragraphs to 8-12 sentences max. Ideally keep them at 4-5 sentences long.
1c. Is there a reaction emoticon thing? It's likely time for a new line.
2. Use proper punctuation.
3. Use proper negation!

Using these tips you go from



to



Which of these looks better? A few paragraphs are easier to manage and keep track where you are in long winded passages. One big paragraph is intimidating and most of us will go "Too Long, won't bother."

This is not only a run on sentence, it's also confusing. This is an example of the grammar that we're complaining about.

So you respond to actual criticism by being defensive and ultimately shutting down? This kind of prideful reaction isn't going to get you far in life. Look, the grammar part is excusable. English is probably a secondary or tertiary language for you. Just work on the paragraphing part. If you're struggling with it, ask for help. I'm willing to offer assistance.
