Rabbit Chase... a different way

Post by CUPCAKE »

I was just thinking, would it be possible to make a rabbit chase map where whatever flag the rabbit has, everyone else automatically gets that flag? And also, only the rabbit can pick up a flag? I think that it would make an interesting map...

Shield flag?

Post by QuantumTim »

What happens if the rabbit gets shield? Surely this would mean the rabbit can't kill anyone, since they can't drop the shield flag!!

Also, this would defeat the point of the hunters finding good flags to take on the rabbit - such as trying to find SE if the rabbit has ST, or getting ST if the rabbit has GM etc.

Yeah, but still... it would be interesting. If the rabit got ST, then everyone would dissapear off the radar!
And what do you mean, can't drop the sheild flag?

If everyone got the same flag the rabbit had, wouldn't that mean they'd have it until the rabbit dropped it?

I'm not a big fan of the idea that only the rabbit could get a flag.

Example: Rabbit with wg

How on earth would you kill a skilled wg fighter without anything? He'd have to make a mistake, and if he was good, he wouldn't.

Yeah, the rabbit would have to drop it. Or... it could be made so that a hunter can drop a flag, but they can't pick up one...

...
Everybody else will have WG too... What part of that can't you comprehend?
It makes the game MORE even, MORE fair.

i think that on rabbit servers the rabbits can often have to much power! or they can hide. i think this makes it boring.

just so you know, you can probably do what your talking abut with a plug in and the "give flag" API command.

I was referring to that. Obviously, it would be easier if the hunters had flags...

Well, at least someone supports my idea.

But honestly, can anyone try and make a plugin for this?

What if the rabbit gets OO? It would be nice if the rabbit grabs tigger happy ( :twisted: ).

Does this imply that having a rabbit drop the flag it was holding would make all the other players drop their flag? It wouldn't be very fair if a rabbit got the OO flag, and then dropped it while a hunter was inside a building. The hunter would be stuck.

And another thing this topic fails to consider: When rabbits are destroyed, the hunter that destroyed them becomes the rabbit. But if the hunter's flag is determined by the previous rabbits flag, wouldn't that mean that a flag could be recycled over and over again? This would destroy the gameplay to a certain extent as people could keep re-using the genocide, and other super flags. And if you say a player could just drop the flag... Is there a player you know that would drop superflags willingly under normal circumstances?

I'm pretty sure the OO flag would have to be taken off the map, because that would indeed lead to some problems.

Distraction, you have very good points. Yet I still think thye plugin is worth a shot.

What I mean is, if I as rabbit picked up shield, so would you as hunter. But when I shoot you, and you drop the shield flag, you instantly pick it up again because I (the rabbit) still have it.

Umm... I'm pretty sure that if a hunter could drop a flag and not pick it up, then he would be able to lose shield.
