Fusion Plug-in

Post by Enigma » Sun Jun 15, 2008 9:52 am

So I started writing another plug-in. It changes the shot type based on a string that is passed to it. For instance, if you passed "WG&GM-CL&L" to the plug-in, WG would have GM shots, and CL would have L shots.

Here are some screenshots.

Cloak with Laser
Wings with Guided Missile
The command that I used to load the plug-in

I will try to keep bzfs running with the plug-in loaded for today (June 15) if anyone wants to try it. There are no guarantees though. Right now WG has GM shots, CL has CS shots, ST has IB shots, A has F shots, V has F shots, OO has SW shots, LG has SB shots, ID has PZ shots, and BU has MG shots.

Is anyone interested in this plug-in? I know I didn't post the code yet, but I will eventually. I haven't posted the code because it is written for BZFlag 3.0, which, as probably everyone knows, is still under development.

So yay, nay? You like it; you don't like it? It is so uninteresting that you decided to continue studying statistics (computing the standard deviation by hand)?

To be honest, I don't think it's really worth using a plug-in to expose a function like this when it's so trivial to just code up the specific combos you need. That is just my personal opinion, though. After all, to some server ops, making a trivial plugin is... non-trivial. :p

Things are going to get wacky when 3.0 comes out.

I thought the "combo" flags were going to require a plug-in. I could be wrong. If they do, I think pretty much most server owners would be interested.

i think this is a nice plug-in, although some parts of it might be too strong (like WG-GM for example). Still, with correctly designed map it will be a good addition to the game.

It's great to see that you are looking to the future, Enigma!

Take a look at my Defender game mode concept.

Thinking is not an automatic process. A man can choose to think or to let his mind stagnate, or he can choose actively to turn against his intelligence, to evade his knowledge, to subvert his reason. If he refuses to think, he courts disaster: he cannot with impunity reject his means of perceiving reality.
