Example

This example spawns all the players in the middle of the game map.

-- Get a table of all the players
players = getElementsByType ( "player" )
-- Go through every player
for playerKey, playerValue in ipairs(players) do
	-- Spawn them at the desired coordinates
	spawnPlayer ( playerValue, 0.0, 0.0, 5.0, 90.0, 0 )
end

This example spawns a player when he logs in.

spawnTeam = createTeam ("Teamname", 255, 0, 0) -- Create team to spawn.
function spawnOnLogin (prevA, curA )
	outputChatBox ("Welcome to ...", source, 255, 0, 0, false)
	spawnPlayer (source, 0, 0, 5, 0, math.random (0,288), 0, 0, spawnTeam) -- spawns player with random skin
	fadeCamera (source, true)
	setCameraTarget (source, source)
end
addEventHandler("onPlayerLogin", getRootElement(), spawnOnLogin)
