PlaceHolder

Post by Zehra » Fri Jul 06, 2018 1:55 am

Day 5 of the week of plug-ins:

Summary:
Bad flags are generally very annoying, but what if it just took the place of a flag?
This is just like useless, except it's bad.

License: LGPL 2.1

Link to plug-in: PlaceHolder

Notes: Flag was in the rejected flags list, but created as a plug-in instead.

So what is the effect of this? Is it a useless flag that you can't drop?

It has none, which is the point of it.
Yes.
It gives map makers the option of adding in bad flags, but not having them have bad effects.
If someone is skillful enough, they should remain alive long enough to wait for the flag drop time.
(Some servers have drop times of 5-10 seconds.)
If you don't have a drop time, it would also tend to reduce the amount of "flag shopping" players do as well.

So put a time limit on flag grabs, that has the same effect and doesn't clutter the map up with extra flags.

This sounds like it just exists for the owner to go "LOLZ, YOU GOT A BAD FLAG!!"

I'll probably be doing this for a plug-in in the near future.
