I thought we were going to use XYZ Creation or XYZ tutorial from now on... Jupix 10:57, 25 Mar 2006 (PST)

I hadn't heard that. The page can always be moved if it needs to be. --TomEdwards 23:48, 25 Mar 2006 (PST)
Discussion here, I think it applies here too. Jupix 02:02, 26 Mar 2006 (PST)
What would a good name be? 'Day of Defeat: Source maps' suggests a list of maps. How about 'Day of Defeat: Source map creation'? --TomEdwards 02:34, 26 Mar 2006 (PST)

Spawn Protection

So how do you implement the new spawn protection that was introduced in Colmar and Jagd? --UNHchabo 20:04, 3 Jul 2006 (PDT)

Is it not automatic?—ts2do 20:57, 3 Jul 2006 (PDT)
Only Smarties Vmex has the answer? Maybe they added a flag to the spawn points or something. --Giles 01:39, 4 Jul 2006 (PDT)
dod_team_wall is the entity :) btw, full detonation mapping documentation is coming soon. --Skdr


It would be very nice if Valve had documented detonation mapping themselves, but that doesn't seem to be the case. Here's what I've worked out so far:

  • Requires dod_control_point_master
  • Like cap zones, each bomb target is a dod_control_point
  • However, instead of a dod_capture_area, we have one dod_bomb_target for each TNT pack required
  • A dod_bomb_dispenser volume provides TNT for one team, the other, or both
    • Usually marked by models/props_crates/tnt_dump.mdl
  • The control point icons for detonation maps are as follows:
    • Icon obj aa allies.png When <defenders> own point -- obj_*_allies or obj_*_axis
    • Icon obj aa white.png Bomb planted (during countdown) -- obj_*_white
    • Icon obj aa allies bombed.png Hud icon - point destroyed -- obj_*_bombed
    • Icon obj capt.png When <attackers> own point -- icon_obj_capt
  • All control point icons are found in dod/materials/sprites/obj_icons
  • Not all obj icons have _bombed variants!

I haven't yet worked out how to make offence/defence maps like Jagd without the defenders winning immediately, however. Anyone got any ideas? --TomEdwards 11:59, 5 Aug 2006 (PDT)

I dont have all the Entity's.

Im a noob at map building. In my entity list I cant find the DoD_Capture_area. I was wondering if there was a addon or something.
