Moved post to the correct forum, and updated the title to be related to what was in the message...

Anyway, I think one way to do this would be to have an object that looks like water (instead of using the built-in water level stuff) and then track when (and how long) the player is on that object based on their position using a plugin.

A similar trick was done to detect players on the
bases in the original AHOD map, using physics drivers.
