Another game option for admins

Post by rumpole »

I was thinking about the /admin silence thing which is a good thing and then I though it would be fun to add

/admin player_ai player-name

which would allow the server to take control of a player using its ai routines which might be a little more fun than kicking out campers

and

/admin player_human player-name

which will return control back to the player

I know its a silly idea but it should be an easy mod and would be very funny when admins abuse it XD

It might be amusing once or twice, but not something I would like to see in the game at large. Warning the campers/explaining to them seems like a better option when combined with suspend than simply having computer ai, which has a tendency to camp under the usual settings, take over adding to the player's confusion. Similar to grinding in fort.

It should be easy, in the code there are already checks for things like IsHuman() etc so all you server would have to do when receiving the command is alter that flag but...

Paladin is probably right, funny for about 3 seconds so its probably not worth the effort.

I put up the poll to see how you feel about such a silly idea and I see that so far we have 100% no so we have an answer.

It should see light once it is done properly.

It should be easy to throw the player into a forced chatbot mode.
