void sampleDocPlugin::Event(bz_EventData* eventData)
   switch (eventData->eventType)
       case bz_eCaptureEvent: // A tank captures the flag
           // Get the data about what just happened and store it in the 'capData' variable
           bz_CTFCaptureEventData_V1* capData = (bz_CTFCaptureEventData_V1*)eventData;

           // Create a player record in order to access the player's callsign
           bz_BasePlayerRecord* myPlayerRecord = bz_getPlayerByIndex(capData->playerCapping);

           bz_sendTextMessagef(BZ_SERVER, BZ_ALLUSERS, "%s captured the flag!", myPlayerRecord->callsign.c_str()); // Announce who captured the flag

       default: break;
