Flag positioning

How should I place the flag?

  1. Be different, hang it from the ceiling!

  2. That would look stupid, go the common way.

    I'm working on a CTF map, and I was thinking of instead of placing the flagpole standing on the ground, but having it hang from the cieling. Of course it will be in easy reach, and not have to jump for it. I think it would be good, and different, but my brother thinks it would be dumb.

    What do you guys think?

    I've hung the flag from the ceiling once, but that's just a question of how you looked at it, because it was actually just standing in the floor. (Yeah I'm talkin' 'bout CTF-Sfear][ :D)

    It depends on how 'unreal' your map is. If the rest of the map doesn't make any sense, just hang it from the ceiling! However if your map has some nice theme it would look stupid.

    i once saw an option somewhere where you can adjust the reachspec location of an item. i don't know where i saw it, but i think it exists, it would eliminate those bots problems.

    I thought the bots wouldn't grab upside-down flags no matter how big the reachspec or collission or whatever was... put it in lava.

    Yup, it looked kinda dumb, so I'm going to place it the usual way. How would placing it in lava work? Put an asbestous suit nearby?

    Thanks for the input.
