Game type is a simplified category describing what a mission is about. It helps player to navigate through potentially large number of available missions and pick the one they would like to play.

Number of available types is limited to a range of well recognized and easily understandable entries like Deathmatch or Sector Control.

Mission Configuration

Game type can be defined Eden Editor scenario attributes or in Description.ext file.

class Header
	gameType =  CTF;	// Game type
	minPlayers =  1;	// minimum number of players the mission supports
	maxPlayers = 10;	// maximum number of players the mission supports

When type is not defined or misconfigured (e.g., using non-existent type), default "Unknown" is used instead.
