About Capture The Flag Recreation

Capture The Flag (CTF) was originally created for ThinkTanks by -z- / Garage Games and was a massively popular gametype for many players, 2 CTF league seasons were also completed. Unfortunately CTF has been missing from our server list for around 2 years as the game script and maps were never released to the community by the creators and as such could not be hosted by any of our own popular community dedicated servers.

Over time there have been many threads created about the lack of CTF and the fact that there are many players who very much miss this game. The original CTF players mostly agree that CTF is the game of all games for ThinkTanks as it takes both battlemode and scrum skills to win.

In September 2008 Mr Phobik came up with the idea of trying to recreate the original CTF maps, this was a fantastic concept but needed a team of people with various skills to get the project off the ground and actually deliver a finished product. Dazzle acted as project leader and creator of the maps but needed the knowledge of LONEWOLF (and his amazing memory) to set out the maps as near as possible to the originals. Art Crazy was also enlisted as chief scripter to write the new CTF gametype code. Various other members of the ThinkTanks community also assisted with information on the special aspects of CTF including the weapons, speed tanks, and scoring systems.

So after 6 months and many hours of combined work CTF Recreation has been produced, a project that has come a long way from the start and a gametype that we are all extremely proud of making and finally bringing back to our server list.

So on behalf of Dazzle, Art Crazy, LONEWOLF and Mr Phobik we hope all the players in TT land will have many enjoyable hours playing CTF Recreation.
