Summary0003838: In Create Game, "Flags" tab does not have a disabled state; the tab either exists, or it doesn't – inconsistency
DescriptionCreate Game has at least two tabs of importance to this issue: "Rules" and "Server". These always exist for any game engine, but depending on engine support (and online play features) these tabs may have an enabled or disabled state in the UI. This is as intended, clean/consistent UI.
Then, there are plugins (Odamex, Sonic Robo Blast 2, Zandronum) that create new tabs. Odamex and Sonic Robo Blast 2 create a tab called "Flags"; Zandronum names this new tab as "Zandronum". Functionally they are more or less the same, ideologically: To set game options (flags) specific to that engine.
In comparison, engines which do not support customization of "flags" don't get this "Flags" tab with a disabled UI state. The tab either exists in "enabled" state, or the tab doesn't exist. This sucks.
Steps To ReproduceFiddle with Create Game with all typical engines enabled. I'm sure you'll understand enough from the description and attached screenshots.

Suggesting the Create Game UI redesign in 0003480 as part of a fix.

This inconsistency is more aggravating, because under "Rules" tab every feature is engine-specific (using shared widgets). But at least the "Rules" tab has an enabled/disabled state, and that makes it well-behaving.
I can't say "Flags" / "Zandronum" to be well-behaving in this regard, though they use unique widgets.
