Palette configure game rules
Placing a Game Rules Chip in your Custom Room lets you define different game modes (in particular PvP modes) which can be rotated through on a Scoreboard (just like how Paintball lets you toggle between team battle and capture-the-flag) and gives you the ability to configure a ton of settings about how those game modes (in particular PvP modes) work.

To define a new game mode, just spawn a new Game Rules chip with the Palette. (The Game Rules chip is in the Gadgets tab under Game Chips.) Then you can configure the chip with the Configure mode of the Maker Pen. (Most PvP games will also require Respawn Points and a Scoreboard Projector.)

Notes on equipment spawning:
  1. Weapons are spawned with default tags: ex #questsword
  2. Weapons have a 15s respawn set, but don't actually respawn at the spawn point. Instead after 15s they despawn if you aren't near them.
  3. If a player is respawned they drop their equipment leaving it in place and get new equipment at the spawn point. If someone doesn't pick up their old items they despawn as mentioned above.
  4. Weapons spawned in this way don't count against your room's ink!
