Possible plugins

Post by The Vaxorcist » Sat Dec 17, 2005 1:37 am

Some Ideas:
I could write a plugin that kicks a randomly chosen person off of the team with more people, and then tells him to join the other team. (would be really good on stuff like pillbox)

I could also write a plugin that provides a graphical interface (I think) to the server, or maybe a graphical server starter that lets you select what you want and then has a big START SERVER button.

Or, a plugin that creates / commands for doing polls - like the existing /poll command, except with more features, like the ability for users to run arbitrary commands. ('A poll has been started to set _tankSpeed to 1000...' :P )

If anyone thinks that they would use any of these, I could probably write them.

I like the set idea, and the team idea.
But if I start a server, I won't trust a gui, personnaly.
But that's just me.

I never make stupid mistakes. Only very, very clever ones.
It is not the fall that kills you. It's the sudden stop at the end.
Always remember you are unique. Just like everybody else.

Same here. But I was thinking of doing it for newbies, so they wouldn't have so many 'how do i set up a server' questions. Of course, if you make it possible for idiots to administer his own server, pretty soon, idiots will be running servers.

Still, I'm willing to do it.

I like the team idea. Would be really useful when its 2 vs 7 and the other team says "We don't switch to the winning team". :D

Nice thinking.

The people will have questions, just the GUI.

Could you write a plug-in so that people could poll questions, kinda like this:

/poll question "Is Ice Wewe stupid?"
To vote type /vote yes or /vote no

I've been wanting /poll with questions for a loooooooooonnnnnnnggggggg time now. That'd be sweet if you wrote that.

about the random kick.....i think it would be anoying to people like the higest person....or if it puts all the poeple on one team........or if there is a team thing going on and one or two people leave for a while so that the game is paused idk...it is early so just tell me to be quiet if you want :P
