  • In your Map GSC, add the following after maps\mp\_load::main();
game["strings"]["war_callsign_a"] = &"MP_MAPNAME_CALLSIGN_LOCATION_A";
game["strings"]["war_callsign_b"] = &"MP_MAPNAME_CALLSIGN_LOCATION_B";
game["strings"]["war_callsign_c"] = &"MP_MAPNAME_CALLSIGN_LOCATION_C";
game["strings"]["war_callsign_d"] = &"MP_MAPNAME_CALLSIGN_LOCATION_D";
game["strings"]["war_callsign_e"] = &"MP_MAPNAME_CALLSIGN_LOCATION_E";

game["strings_menu"]["war_callsign_a"] = "@MAPNAME_CALLSIGN_LOCATION_A";
game["strings_menu"]["war_callsign_b"] = "@MAPNAME_CALLSIGN_LOCATION_B";
game["strings_menu"]["war_callsign_c"] = "@MAPNAME_CALLSIGN_LOCATION_C";
game["strings_menu"]["war_callsign_d"] = "@MAPNAME_CALLSIGN_LOCATION_D";
game["strings_menu"]["war_callsign_e"] = "@MAPNAME_CALLSIGN_LOCATION_E";
