Capture the Flag
  • Feature: Capture The Flag
    • Capture The Flag has two variants. 2 flag and 1 flag.
      • 2 flag is like traditional CTF. Capture the enemy flag and take it back to your base.
      • 1 Flag has a central flag location, that you then need to take to the enemy base to capture.
    • CTF Rounds last up to 12 minutes depending on the level settings. If after time is up and the score is even, the game will enter a 1 minute "Overtime".
    • Once the round is up, teams will swap sides of the map.
    • CTF has a new respawning system. Instead of having a limited number of lives in a round there are now "infinite" lives. However, respawns are no longer instant, and each class has a respawn timer. Reinforcement point count is also taken into consideration.
      • Baseline respawn times:
        • 1 Life Classes: 40 Seconds
        • 2 Life Classes: 24 Seconds
        • 3 Life Classes: 12 Seconds
        • Changing class: 48 seconds
      • On low population servers the respawn times above will be halved until there are more than 8 in-game players. Respawn time will then scale up until the maximum time is reached at 16 players.
      • In Full Authentic / Legends mode, the system works the same until a class has more than 2 extra lives. 3 extra lives will reduce the timer to 9 seconds, then every extra life beyond that will reduce it by another second until it is instant. FA authors may also use the new MBCH key respawnCustomTime to simply specify a maximum respawn time.
    • Flag Carrying Restrictions: Certain abilities cannot be used while carrying the flag, and will drop the flag on use.
      • Force Speed
      • Force Mind Trick
      • Jetpack
      • Droideka Roll
      • Wookiee Rage.
    • Flag Carrying Debuffs: Certain abilities get debuffs when used while carrying the flag
      • Force Jump - Drains more while using jump. (2x)
      • Running - Movement speed is reduced by 10% while running.
    • When a flag is dropped, it cannot be instantly picked up and it will have to be recaptured. To recapture it you must stand within the capture area around the flag for a few seconds.
    • Each flag and base has a 3D Objective icon and radar icon on it. If a flag has been taken its 3D icon is not always visible, but will periodically flash on the screen instead.
  • New: Added option to reduce opacity of siege objective help icons (cg_helpIconOpacity / Settings > UI > UI Options 2).
  • New / Change: Updated flag status indicators.
  • Change: Round timer and other nearby HUD elements are now hidden when Join menus are open.
  • Fix: The directional arrows in the bar indicating capture zone capture progress should display properly now.
