Example

Example 1: This example creates a new team for a player, then adds him to it.

function gimmeATeam ( source, commandName, teamName )
  local newTeam = createTeam ( teamName ) -- create a new team with the specified name
  if newTeam then -- if it was successfully created
    setPlayerTeam ( source, newTeam ) -- add the player to the new team
  end
end
addCommandHandler("giveteam", gimmeATeam)

Example 2: This example creates two teams, one for Admin and one for Freeroamers, when the resource this script is in is started.

function createTeamsOnStart ()
	teamAdmmin = createTeam ( "Admin", 0, 255, 0 ) --change the 3 numbers(0,255,0), the first number is ColourR, the second is ColourG, and the last one is ColourB
	teamFreeroamers = createTeam ( "Freeroamer", 200, 0, 100 )
end
addEventHandler("onResourceStart", resourceRoot, createTeamsOnStart) --we attach the function to this resource's root element

Example 3: This example creates a team for Admin and when an admin logs in, he will be set in the Admin team.

function createAdminTeamOnStart ()
	AdminTeam = createTeam ( "Admin", 0, 255, 0 )-- create a new team and name it 'Admin'
end
addEventHandler("onResourceStart", resourceRoot, createAdminTeamOnStart) -- add an event handler

function setAdminTeam()
if isObjectInACLGroup("user."..getAccountName(getPlayerAccount(source)), aclGetGroup("Admin")) then -- if he is admin
   setPlayerTeam(source, AdminTeam) -- set him to admin team
   end
end
addEventHandler("onPlayerLogin",getRootElement(),setAdminTeam) -- add an event handler
