Callvote Putspec

Post by Elite » Mon May 29, 2006 9:32 am

I have a suggestion. Perhaps a Putspec vote for players who are afk. Similar to the !putteam command, but this would be used so that guests can call a vote to put a player in spec rather than kicking when they are afk. I run a Jaymod server, and would love to see that in there.

I'm developing a no-vote-enabled server so it wouldn't affect me, but I got no prob with it.

Well, for the people it does affect. There are players who do join a team and end up afk. I hate when people call a vote to kick them, and would rather still have them on the server as a spectator so they are not in the way of the action.

This seems reasonable.

I suggested this some time ago, but got hammered with people saying that this mod wasnt to take the place of proper admining.....

I think its an ok idea, personally.

edit...

***I was going to post a link. :( OK maybe this was a topic discussed on a forum somewhere else. When looking through my previous post Im not seeing it here***

Stickied posts are ones that Jaybird has agreed to, but has not yet had the time to work on.

We have the inactivity settings for players and specs...
Maybe it would be easier to implement a flag for g_inactivity which moves players into spec automatically (which would work for protected admins too for example), or -if the admin wants it- kicks the players as it does now.

So that means they would be AFK *and* occupying a slot for a potential newcomer? or we could decide how long they would spec for? I thought there was a command for that already, maybe it's in ETPRO...

Maybe madifying the cvar behavior?

Jay have atm this two cvar:

g_spectatorInactivity
g_inactivity

Both kick the players. I suggest the g_inactivity cvar dont kick the players only put them spectators from the tean
