  • new scoreboard player icon: sh_vr

    Two threads for context

    sh_vr initial availability announcement
    Guidance on how to correctly use sh_vr

    The following changes nothing about the sh_vr console command, its availability in console or chat, how it acts, or how /we/ should act when using it. It just makes life easier for those confirming that folks can hear voicecomm.

    A new icon now appears on the scoreboard near the names of players who have yet to sign the TGNS Primer and play at least 10 games on the server. It serves two purposes:

    ) easy execution of sh_vr against that player

    ) easy tracking of who in this group has been VETTED for responding to voicecomm

    After (repeat: AFTER) confirming that the player can respond to voicecomm, click that player's chevron (^) icon to tell the server to stop displaying the sh_vr icon for that player. The server does not remember across mapchanges who has been vetted (I may add this in the future, as dev fatigue is the primary reason it's omitted at the moment, but I see advantages to NOT persisting this, so... we'll see).

    Any regular may clear any teammate's sh_vr icon, but PLEASE don't clear that icon until you've verified the player can actually (read: "actually" -- see Guidance link above) hear voicecomm.

    My /design/ is that we'll come to TRUST that a player /without/ a "P" and /without/ an sh_vr icon has /already/ been vetted (by SOMEBODY this map) for voicecomm and may without further questioning be treated as anyone proven to be listening to voicecomm.

    Unchanged: BY ALL MEANS, feel free to verify /anyone's/ ability to hear voicecomm at any time. This new icon is meant to make verification more convenient, not more restrictive.

    Feedback welcome. Please report defects.

Nightly I am amazed at the personalities and gaming talent.

    I like the new icon and functionality, wondered if the approve chevron affected it and definitely makes sense that it does. Thank you for this addition!

      The server now remembers each voicecomm vetting for ~3 hours. That is, the checkmark will re-appear for a stranger's scoreboard row for approximately 3 hours after he's vetted for voicecomm.

          Ah, and I should have ended with what I always say sincerely:
