Server Suggestions

Post by [!!!]xX » Thu Feb 15, 2007 2:41 am

I know u guys like to do things ure way and i played the server the other nite for an hr or two and seen a couple of things i seen on other servers that could benefit ure server so thought i would suggest them. Remember these are only suggestions so no need to flame if u don't like em :P

1. Inactivity timer - We had one guy on allies who was afk for at least 2.5 maps. Unfortunately no admin was on the server at the time, and no one on my msn list either, we couldn't vote kick them so left the teams rather uneven indeed.
2. Vote kick-I know this has been discussed in the past, and yes u do get some stupid lamers who call votes all the time, but that is outweighed by getting the afkers off the server when needed. BTW as soon as Potty (i think it was potty at least) arrived on the server, the dude decided to play after all that time of inactivity *sigh*
I know u guys aint there all the time, but this would show some faith in ure regular players :wink:
3. Antispawn kill roofs, cuts the need for admins to need to spoil their games by checking for spawnkillers, doesn't stop panzer but stops airstrikes, artillery and mortar hitting spawn areas, therefore admin has no need to go to spec to check and they can enjoy their game (for a change) ;)

I agree :D

I think we have antispawn roofs on some of the maps.

I also like how FuN has the map at the loading screen that shows what is, and where is, considered spawn kill by highlighting the areas in red. So I'm hoping we get that added soon, as there was some discussion a night or 2 ago about mortar strikes on Goldrush.

Can see all these suggestions in force on Hirntot server. They work :wink: et.hirntot.org i believe, pop in and see them in action sometimes, the roofs and loading pages on that server too btw, and u will see that their aren't too many kick votes going on :wink:

Here are my suggestions :
-Warning for selfkills limit in text messages and not popup (many ppl dont see the message and get kicked for that), just like the way it is on hirntot.
-Message with the HP left of the guy who just killed you, in the text messages (same as on GW's server, with the hpleft cmd)
-killing sprees messages
-remove the adrenaline explosion. medics have no warning and don't get why they are killed. just disable adren if you don't want players to use it.

i agree for inactivity kick or at least putspec.
but for kick votes u can use pb_kick instead.

I don't know, never seen this before but that seems pretty amusing to me! Price you pay kinda, yanno?

As for the timeout kick, that sounds fair to me and I do like this suggestion. It's not fair for people to go afk for long periods of times when there are others waiting at the door to get in. This could make things a lot easier on our Refs and when they are not around, our patrons will not be aggrivated by 'the one left in spawn' every time they respawn.

prob with the timeout kick and the reason why it was removed is that when we are speccing people , if we were to be in spec to long we would also get booted
i have been in spec over an hour dealing with people ,. a 10 - 15 min idle kick would not work

Why not have the inactivity kick only affect unregistered nicks? That way the admins/regulars can soec the botters without worrying about being booted for inactivity..

Shoutcasters don't get kicked for inactivity afaik, but its not always nice to go shoutcaster when ure trying to spec a haxx0r, however as long as ure moving around now n again it won't kick u :wink:

I am Mazza <---- evil side
I am xX <--- nice girl side

Just hope my personality don't split any more or we're all in big trouble :twisted:
