Autopilot/observer/waiting to spawn

Post by Matt? » Thu Jun 08, 2006 4:51 pm

i think that while in autopilot you should be able to follow a player. this would be a great enhancement for admins. if you have a suspect cheater, you dont have to loose your score rejoining and folowing him, you can just go into folowing that person or maybe when you are waiting to spawn you can do that. idk

that would be great mabey you could make a plugin that saves youre score to a variable and then puts you to observer and then when youre done type some thing like /push normal as a command and then you go back to normal playing with youre old score

o i guess my reasoning was the server has to be the one to know what team you are on. so i guess it wouldnt be a plugin

A plugin can change a person's score (although you won't see your own, everyone else will see yours), but it can't change a person's team in-game or make you drive with someone.

the 2.1 api can change teams of players.
it can force people to observer and put them back.

That's a good idea, but only allow it to the admins or something so if someone doesn't like their score they just spawn every minute or so and just watch everyone else while they're waiting for the really good players to leave.

I'm sure they'll make it a permission or plugin only.

it is plugin only. you would write the plugin to only do it for the person you wanted and when you wanted.

it also does NOT respawn you, or change your score. Those are controlled independetnly.

it's basicly how rabbits are set, but expaned to any team.
