I have not worked on this in a while, thought I would post it. It still needs some work before public use. I Hope this is helpful to someone else. This can be useful if your server has custom stock maps. You can apply the zone fixes Iran added to stock maps long ago.
Also if you want to use the pure stock maps you can still apply the zones fixes or replace the existing zones. You can disable/enable each zone individually. Specify the Zone, Add your own script to the zone and send parameters. Create a custom zone.
As well as adding my attempt to fix the missing nod refinery aggregate.

Can't you just get the MCT position based on Refinery position and rotation/facing?

I'll see about adding support for b2b prevention.

Yea but its not exact. Has an offset for some reason. If you check it out disable MCT_ReadINI and you will see what I mean.

Ah. Apparently LevelEdit places stuff higher by 2.0f Z height

If you want to find the exact position/facing of, say, the Nod Refinery MCT (that is, the physics object that counts as the MCT and will take the extra MCT damage when hit), do this:

#include "buildingaggregateclass.h"
#include "buildinggameobj.h"
#include "matrix3d.h"

//somewhere in your code
BuildingGameObj *obj = Find_Refinery(0);
BuildingAggregateClass *ba = obj->Find_MCT();
Matrix3D tm = ba->Get_Transform();
Vector3 position = tm.Get_Translation();
float rotation = RAD2DEG(tm.Get_Z_Rotation());


Change the first line of code as appropriate to find the MCT for different buildings.
The position/rotation values you just obtained can be passed to Commands->Set_Position and Commands->Set_Facing as appropriate.

The values you get here should match exactly to what you would see if you opened up the .lvl file in LevelEdit and double clicked on the MCT object.

The Position I get from Find_MCT on canyon.
I cant get the facing it is always 0.

Position -74.823540 -128.861725 1.024454 Rotation 0.000000 Facing 0.000000

Do you know if this is something that could be fixed by editing the mctfix w3dfiles. The mct is centered 0.0.0 in the gmax file.

The correct position for canyon

MCT_Position_X=-74.803001
MCT_Position_Y=-128.895004
MCT_Position_Z=1.486000
MCT_Facing=90.000000


Correcting the facing and position in game.
