Zoning maps over and over has become tiresome, especially when it has to be repeated over and over with possible inconsistencies that can affect times on competitive timers. KSF does a thing with their timer where mappers can put map zones directly into their maps, and they will be read by the timer. The basic idea is that mappers place trigger_multiples in the map with names signifying what type of zone it is.

Mev has come up with a similar idea and standardized it. If you want to incorporate these zones into your own maps read the following: https://github.com/3331/fly/blob/mas...ing-guidelines

If you are a developer and you want to incorporate this into your own timer, take a look at this: https://github.com/3331/fly/blob/mas...gin-guidelines

There is also an example SourceMod plugin that shows how zones can be obtained from the map that can be found here: https://github.com/3331/fly/blob/mas...d/fly-zones.sp

Keep in mind that Mevs ideas are for his own project for a fly server and that a lot of this is up to the developers that decide to incorporate this for other gamemodes (e.g. Surf, Bhop). I'm hoping that both mappers and timer developers would incorporate this (hopefully following same standard) to save everyone a lot of time and effort from zoning every map.

Great idea, it's indeed a horrible job to have to set up the zones.

Still only applies to new maps though unfortunately.

I also maintain a Surf server, no timers as KSF, but there are jails. Players shouldn't be able to kill people inside jail, when they are not inside jail. There are also areas players shouldn't be able to enter, so there should be a kill trigger there.

Came across Dev Zones:

Should work, and has a few nice third party addons (such as a solution to my jail problem).
