This is a lua script that enhances the CTF gametype so it doesn't suck. I wrote the original CTF script, and Irons added some cool features along the way. The readme included explains everything in detail.
This is the same version that has been out forever. Just adding the file to Simplici7y.
Certianly Has Merit

CTF has always been held in a special place for me and I always found it adrenalin pumping and a lot of fun. The complaints that Tim has suggested are faults that effect all team matches and are usually a product of bad hosting and unintelligent team balancing. Somehow, Ctf.lua itself has always been plagued with the brunt the fault. But everything about this game type requires thinking. Get 4 competent people together, and your in for one heck of a firefight and quick thinking. Do I defend or attack? How do I get get from point A to point B the fastest? Will there be a lot of resistance? What is the best direction to attack from? What are the directions my opponent is most likely to come from, and where can I place myself to get the first shot in? Not to say the new Rugby doesn't have it's own strategy as well, some of these even. But whereas rugby is more direct and in your face, which is to it's credit, I will always be a sucker for this slightly slower paced mind game.
CTF is not Rugby

...but this script is nice.
I like how it shows you the name and health % of the team mate you put in your cross hairs, as well as distances from each flag.
I also have noticed unexplainable lag from time to time but this is rare for me.

I really appreciate the work that went into redeeming CTF (even if it ends up being overshadowed by its pluckier younger brother Rugby).
The perennial problems with CTF that tim mentioned can't be helped (since we can't use Lua to make newbies play better or drop out less).
However, the infamous lag of CTF 4 concerns me. Is it native to CTF mode, or does it have to do with the 909 lines of Lua in this script? My reservations lead me to deduct one star.

Awful game type. CTF is just never fun. It's impossible to get balanced teams, players would always drop out leaving the sides unbalanced, and it almost always ends in a stalemate or one team completely dominating the other.
