This example creates a team, and sets the player's team to it's partial name:
-- Creates a red team createTeam("Red", 255, 0, 0) function joinRedTeam (source) local redteam = getTeamFromName("Red") if (redteam) then -- If the team was successfully created -- Sets the player's team by getting the partial name of the red team. setPlayerTeam(client, readteam) outputChatBox("You are now in the 'Red' team", source) else outputChatBox("Sorry, we can't set your team. An error occurred!", source) end end --Add console command to join the team when 'joinTeam' is typed. addCommandHandler("jointeam", joinRedTeam)
