wow thank you for the massive input !
about the death messages: we had this in, but it was annoying, the bots do not have names, we can give them names, but it isn't what I expected it to be
time limit game mode: check speedrun, its exactly what you want Server saves the fastest time of a map, and next time the map is played, this is the new timelimit. This timelimit is saved in a cvar, so it can be set by admins.
Tesla, spirits, flamethrowers (except the one from the player himself) and the boss lightning are a pile of crap, and this code will take a lot of work to cleanup so it works like it should in a multiplayer environment. In battle gametype these are all disabled
A lot of the map bugs happen in only very specific situations, all the maps have been finished with 1 or 2 players. But sometimes something fails and you cannot finish it. A workaround is to go in spectator mode, fly to the point you have to be, save a spawnpoint and go back to normal player, and you'll respawn behind a gate that doesnt want to open.
although the question remains....what happens if its in an indoor area and spectating players cannot pass through doors that are still closed?
