The revival of !friendly
« on: April 22, 2017, 09:10:06 AM »
It's been a while since I've browse this website, but after some time, I wanted to offer a suggestion when it comes to the !friendly command.

We all know the command was as buggy as those Sonic games people hated, from being able to keep overheal without a medic to the point of being able to !rtd regardless of whether you were non-friendly or !friendly.

Now then, my suggestion as to returning the !friendly command comes from this plugin I found once when looking around the internet.

Since I know the server has it's own custom commands (not created by plugins, but by the programmer itself), this could become a useful !friendly. Allow me to explain:

The plugin seems to consist of you being able to become a ghost upon death, which appears to be a toggle mode command. If so, the server could be programmed so upon typing !friendly, it will toggle ghost mode on and kill the player as well, so they can become a ghost. Now if not mistaken, if you toggle the ghost option off, you don't die, but will need to respawn/change classes at spawn. This being said, perhaps making it so that typing !friendly again when disabling ghost mode resulted in force respawning would be my personal advisable suggestion, or perhaps an !unfriendly command to counterpart this.

Also, I believe the ghosts aren't transparent, so perhaps it could be done so the friendies's alpha is changed in order to have transparency.

This is just my personal opinion, but if this was do-able, it'd be interesting to see how people would react to this new mode of !friendly.
I don't bite, so feel free to message me if anything.

If we can have this so the friendlies still can't pick up weapon drops and be in godmode, I'm all for this.

That was one of the main problems through the weapon drops at first, so it's based on that.


I do like this idea, and support it. That's if we could potentially get it to function  :)

Upon death, you become the halloween ghost (not your model with a different alpha value), so I don't think you'll be able to pick any weapons.

I guess that adds a whole new meaning to ghosting.

This topic is a bit old now, but !friendly could be re-added. After all, Weapon drops can be disabled. In fact I think they're all disabled right now on our servers. I noticed that a few weeks back.

I've been going to this server that has the !friendly plugin but with a different twist:

-You respawn painted to be noticeable
-Exploitable weapons cannt be switched to, you instantly get changed to a non-exploitable one
-Picking a weapon off the ground will disable that slot (pick a primary, secondary and melee will make you civilian)

If this could be done with the TF2SS servers, I'd see it as a viable version.
If people whine about it, then they can just deal with it.

I actually agree with this idea. Anyone else?

This can still be left up for discussion.

Is this something we're going to be on board with?

I miss !friendly! That shit was the bee's knees dipped in cheese! If we make sure it can't be abused somehow to ruin the experiences of other players, ain't no reason to keep it locked away.

Bring back that which I held so dear!

Unfortunately the subject wasn't pushed or encouraged any further. I'm for it, but you may have to remake the subject to make another attempt at pushing it forward.
