  • VIP Mode now playing on the server

    Starting to seed for VIP mode on the server. I'm not sure all that this mode entails but it looks pretty cool. ;)

      Actually that mode didn't work well with our squadless kick script, so we're back to conquest mode.

        Its a nice to have an objective. And i loved the close quarters dirty fighting on that "street" map.

        Maybe we could try this on a monday night mayhen so we wouldnt need the squadkick script?

          How about trying it on password night?

          Then again, maybe there would be too many people on at the same time.

            Yeah when we implement the mode for a night in the future we'll give everyone some lead time and linkage to the PR wiki to read up on the mode so we won't have as much confusion as we did tongiht.

                I've had some good "Extraction" games on other servers. The problem most of the time is when people don't know what they are supposed to be doing. If more people just took the time to read the PR wiki/manual this mode can be a lot of fun. Take a look at the link in Ricks post... the more people that read it, the more fun there is to be had :icon_cool Although it would seem that with the release of 0.4 only AlBasrah supports the SUV Escort mode and only Gulf of Aqaba supports Insurgent hunt mode, which is a shame.

                Is that because it was trying to kick the VIP/Pilot/Insurgent?

                  How I wish they'd made the vip whoever is in the "vip" squad or something like that. Since it's Monday I can't join in tonight.

                  Funny though how I had a 6 man squad all set up, waiting in vain for that pilot to pop his head out. I've seen how the mode works on other servers, but I just can't be bothered trying to set up a good game on those. To make it fun, some restraint is necessary imo and that's hard to find elsewhere. You can't have all the defenders rushing out to find opfor because they didn't have a kill in over a minute, as you see the vip stroll by in his shabby car.

                  Question: is the autokick script easy to turn off or not? Would be a big burden on the admins though.

                    Exactly. I tried it myself a few times and couldn't do it. It is not easy to toggle that script (i.e. it requires access to the box itself I believe, which only a couple people can do and also requires a server restart).

                    So this will have to be a planned event, with a limited population cap on the server (most likely 32 players). If we can get everyone schooled up on the various game modes for each map (possibly by posting the map order in the announcement thread), with 32 educated players on the server, the modes have a lot of potential.

                      I see one problem with these modes though; the vip is not integrated into the voip command structure. Respect to the devs for even getting it working though.

                        Maybe the role can be integrated into the command position in future releases as the commander isn't absolutely necessary in extraction, that would certainly solve the voip problem, and would be more than help with TG's script...
                        Or maybe they could have a separate position for the VIP/Pilot/Insurgent that works similar to the command position (or even squad leader). But Instead of picking up kit, the player has to be at the SUV or at a certain point (flag) to apply for the position, similar to the way you have to be at a flag to request a kit.. and if the player leaves the SUV when he is playing as VIP, he looses the position.

                        Oh if only....

                        Hey Asch, I don't suppose you could run this by your buddies at PR, just to see if any of that crap can actually be done.

                          This looks pretty damn sweet. Can't wait to see a finished version on our server.
