Forging 101: Taking Advantage of Symmetry Options Most people don't know what the symmetry option does, however it's very useful when your trying to set up a map to be played on any mode. You may notice that as soon as you set your map up for One Flag CTF, it becomes a terrible Multi Flag map. Using the symmetry option, you can fix these problems. If the option is set to asymmetric for an extra turret or crate you placed in a base, then that object will only spawn when your playing a game that is considered symmetric? One Flag CTF is an example of an asymmetric game, because it is not balanced. A map designed for One Flag CTF will generally have extra defenses in the defending teams base, if these defenses are asymmetric? they wont exist in your Multi Flag game. By default all objects will spawn in all games because they are set to both. To find out for sure which maps are symmetric and which are asymmetric you just have to experiment to see which fits your mode. However, it is known that Team Slayer and Multi Flag are considered symmetrical and One Flag is considered asymmetric.
