How about a command "capture" and to check the room to see if the flags
are present. (and check which team your on)
Getting flag, check player if opposing team and flag of opposite team.
(to keep your own team from getting the flag and holding it)
For teams, the player can not participate until they are flagged part of
a team.
Choosing teams, command "Team 1" or Team 2" (something similar) then a
check to see in code if flagged team X.
Maybe a command to see who has flags, that way if a thief is playing
they can track em?
Maybe another check, If not part of a team, they can not be killed or
One other option, find a way that others can not get things from corpses
(except thier own) in the zone. To keep others from taking things that
dont belong to them. (or if in a room that people get killed alot, they
dont accidentally get all all.corpse and have to sort eq out)
