Most of gamemodes of capturing some objects has it. It's very useful to players to know where flag located is. Yes it will use I/O a bit more but I'm sure it should to be added here. Just small markers with minimal size updated each 100ms on the current position of flag.

Also makers of bases shold be smaller.

-1 players with flag will be exposed and everyone will be awared where the flag is and players shoot before flagger cross near them. It is useless.

What do you mean? Vito's suggestion has nothing to do with this. He simply suggested to add flag markers, like red marker for RED team's flag and BLUE for blue team's flag. He did not mean to show the marker of player who has flag. ( correct me if i'm wrong @Vito )

I did. But anyway there is alot of options: show only dropped flag, show flag holded by player of your team only and so on. It's up to this discussion and player's option in the result.

Well if thats the thing then i do agree with @zeeshan, it won't be competitive as it is now but marker for flag which has been dropped somewhere else would be nice.

Besides, i suggest to apply my idea for ctf5 since it does not show you the opponent's team flag like it does in ctf4 when round is about to start.
Replacing those big base markers by small flag markers, like red colored one for team red and so for blue would be nice and helpful for newbies to get to the flag.

barely newk will agree to stream (playercount quantity) makers to show flags on hands but at least dropped flags (to show for all) will be useful

Yes, marking player (of your team only) who holding flag as a gui element on the screen is even better than radar mark and its not limited in terms of scriptig. Great idea Panzer.

Hmm, I like the idea of showing the marker of the flag when dropped. Players will be drawned to that location which will bring alot of fighting action which is a good thing.

On CTF5 when a player reconnects and has the flag, the flag will respawn back at the team base, on CTF4 I dont recall but I believe it's the same. It's either that or it just drops on the location the player was when he disconnected.

I think we can easily show players with the flags on their backs or on their hands when they capture it though. We would just have to create a few custom player skins that look exactly the same as the ones we use now with a slight diference of having a "flag model" attached to the player skin, then we can change the player skin with .setSkin() when they captured the flag.
