World Weapon Idea

Post by Bambino »

Here's an idea I thought of a while ago but recently remembered, what if you could set a death message to a world weapon? something like this:

weapon
name weapon_death
position 380 380 0
rotation 0
color 0
tilt 0
type SW
trigger oncap
eventteam 1
death Spawnkilling is a bad habit. Break it.
end

I thought it would appeal to map makers.

hmmmm... interesting. I think it could work on selct servers, but if you have it on the wrong server, people would hate your map.

you can make a plug-in that does that, just process the capture message inside the plug-in

Alright, do I have to make a plugin or mod the WWPlugin preinstalled in my bzflag folder?
