Stopping Both Teams From Repair Pad Camping

First you have read the tutorial on removing out of bounds areas from maps. Once you understand how to use BattleCraft to manipulate the MaterialMap.raw files, you can move on to other more creative ways of using it to sculp areas.

To stop people from camping the pad, carefully place a small section of "outside of map" material under the pad model itself. This will allow a player 7 seconds of repair time before the driver starts taking soldier damage as if off the map. This is just enough time to fully repair almost any vehicle, so the pad will still serve its intended purpose.

Vehicles spawned on the pad, along with those left on it, will remain undamaged and only the camper will take a health loss.

This is actually a pretty classy fix for anyone wanting to put a stop to the many types of extended camping BF1942 provides.
