    This is a game mode, which I think would be fun to try out!
    It's easy to understand.
    You need a map, where the Red team has a castle with some traps and other stuff they can use to defense their flag!
    The blue team doesn't need anything but a spawn which is outside the caste.
    The blue team wins, if they are able to capture the flag.
    The red team wins, if their flag isn't captured after 10 minutes defending.
    (The red team can't win by capturing the blue flag!)

    Both teams have unlimited units.
    Archers start with 50 arrows and 50 stone.
    Knights start with 1 bomb and 50 stone.
    (I would prefer to have workshops, because that may be to many bombs... but you can't add workshops in editor, yet.)

    This is only my version you can change the given start items or amount of time or what ever!^^

    I don't think it is already the final version, but it's playable!(maybe?)

    Example map: Barbarians and Knights, Alien Attack
    Example Server: "Experimental Server" (They made some changes to the modefiles... these here will be updated after testing!)

    EDIT:
    Updated files! (27.11.2011)
    Changes:
    • again archers on blue
    After testing, for example on BlueLuigi's server, plz suggest here for changes!

    Do you need your own server to do this?

    No you can just join a server which is using this, but I don't think there are any servers using this, yet!

    But if you got a server you can use it!

    I think you can set these as zero (unnecessary coins.. lag fps ...etc) in gamemode.cfg

    coins_death_drop_percentage = 0
    coins_damage_enemy = 0
    coins_build_percentage = 0
    coins_bomb_cost = 20
    coins_arrows_cost = 1
    coins_heal_cost = 2
    coins_unit_cost = 0

    How do you edit the .cfg files? Whenever I try Windows tells me that the file doesn't have any programs capable of running it, however if I open the file from the archive directly, I can view it but no change it. How do I fix this?

    notepad++ is much better/easier than using pretty much any other text editor.

    Personal preference: TextPad.

    There are always those who will swear by such things as VIM too, bleh.

    Is it possible to have the time limit show for blue team as well? If so I think it would be a good addition.

    Spam Cleared. VDreamer, Unwoundpath, I suggest you talk chit chat to a private conversation or IRC.

    The last 90 seconds or so does show up at the top of the screen at least. I never noticed the time in the scoreboard likely because most servers dont use timelimits :P

    Sweet! I missed the INF mode from Soldat.
    Although:

    - Why no archers on blue?
    and
    - There should be a team switch like on Rapid DM, so that you get some variation and dont defend all the time.

    yeah I think so, too.
    I think I'll put archers back in but you can't teamswitch because you can't define the rules for every single map.
