TDM uses team spawn entities

Question TDM uses team spawn entities
I think that TDM should go back to using info_player_team1 and info_player_team_2 as spawn points (Nexuiz 2.5.2 uses info_player_deathmatch, so a red guy can spawn in a blue base, although apparently this didn't used to be the case). I am very annoyed that they removed this feature from Nexuiz.

However, I acknowledge that this may affect (read: "break") some older maps, so I would also be open to the possibility of it being a cvar (perhaps "g_tdm_use_team_spawns" or similar) that can be set in the .mapinfo file for each map.

Therefore, I would like to see what everyone else thinks about this before I push for it. (I have a feeling that I am not alone in wanting TDM team spawns, but just in case I am...)

RE: TDM uses team spawn entities
this would only make sense in CA! tdm always used the normal dm entities.

if this system would be changed all maps need changes. That leads to much work

Boring to you, but great for others!

Leave the entities as they are please, it's always been that way in every TDM game I played in any FPS that I know, also for nexuiz it doesn't make sense to do it that way in TDM.

That is my point. I don't like the mode - but some people do, and for THESE it probably is better to keep it the "usual" way.

On another note: the OP obviously doesn't know about the g_tdm_team_spawns cvar.

I just looked for it: it doesn't exist in my game (2.5.2, default build) but sounds slightly relevant Tongue Care to elaborate?
