Lua is a scripting language that has become popular with game developers with its ease of use. Fortress Forever has it embedded within the game server to create complex game rules for the game. It allows mappers to create new and different game modes, as for server admins to change the rules of a map without changing the map itself.

Mappers who do not wish to script new game modes can use the ready made Map_Templates which are included with Fortress Forever. Minimal lua editing is required.
