Water Plugin?

Would it be possible to make a plugin that changed the water level by what ever number? There could be servers where the water rises and everybody has to climb a hard course so they don't die.

Currently the water level cannot be adjusted in-game in any way.

That idea for a map could be done by making a very large shock wave world weapon (though it might not look as nice).

I made a map like this a while ago. A shockwave originated in the middle of a circular map and increased slowly in size over about 2 mins. The only safe areas were the four bases at the edge of the map.

Unfortunately, players that joined after the shockwave was fired would not see the shockwave, and so could just drive through it (as it seems that the server tells the client a SW has fired, and leaves it at that). This led to many arguments among the players, as well as false accusations of cheating. Which was a shame, because other than that, it worked well.

I think you can make it with Drawinfo but it won´t kill the tanks.

I know! Create a plugin to change the _shockInRadius and _shockOutRadius variables after the shockwave has fired. Then the next one looks like a continuation of the first, and players joining after the first SW is fired will still see it.

or just have several shock waves one bigger than the other and have them fire one after the other quickly so it looks like one big shock wave getting bigger.

You can't have different sized shockwaves.

i think he means creating multiple WW each with an increasing _shockIn/OutRadius to give the effect of a single SW getting bigger and bigger.

Blast understood exactly what you said and his answer still stands. Shockwaves are ONE size for the entire map. World Weapon and/or flag it is ALL the same.

You could write a plugin to change the variables in-between shockwaves being fired.

I guess ratfink's idea was just to ensure that players joining later would have a better chance of seeing the SW by firing a increasingly larger shockwave (like, the first time, have the shock in radius be 20 and the shock out be 30, fire, then have the shock in be 30 and the shock out 40, and fire again) which I had misunderstood.

Synchronous WW with time delay, or asynchronous, whats easier/more likely?

edit: I mean should the multiple WW idea be done by letting multiple WW happen at once, and also adding a time delay so people can make them start at different times(sync), or make a job queue of WW(async).

I don't understand what you mean by synchronous and asynchronous with respect to world weapons...?

or, this is may take some time to make, have small shock waves arranged in spheres, each sphere bigger than the last, and have them fire one after another to make it look like 1 shock wave getting bigger.


or have shock waves arranged like platforms one higher than the last and make them fire so it looks like a platform moving up.
