base_teamplay includes the basic team-oriented objects needed for most FF maps. To enable it, put this line into your map's Lua file.


Note: Most gameplay scripts already include base_teamplay. If you have included one of those already, this step is not necessary.

Simply place the specified type of entity in your map, and give it the name in bold. The game will take care of the rest.

In the list below, substituting 'yellow' or 'green' will support yellow and green teams.
