Assist vctf flag carrier thread.
« on: September 06, 2018, 13:06 »
It monitors the player with the flag and the driver and awards points and adrenaline based on the time the carrier was on the driven vehicle up to a maximum.

I can make changes. This is just a start to see if we have something to build on.

The flag carrier holds the flag. Every second they do so is counted.  Every second he's sitting on  vehicle, the Vehicle driver gets an assist second. The driver gets points and adrenaline for the proportion of the time they were being the taxi.  At least that is what the coder was trying to achieve. We can change the logic to be whatever we decide works for us

I can see it now. Raptor, and flag carrier, hiding under cliff, counting the seconds. :)
It'll be a new hiding place to find flag carrier.

I'd like to see flag carrier being able to link manta or raptor, and zoom away!!

Did you get any message when they capped?
No

Today, with the raptor I received the assistance points! (I didn't notice the adrenaline), but when I did with the manta didn't work

With the raptor it took a little longer until he scored, with the manta he scored as soon as I left him
but maybe I could have fooled myself

I'm wondering if the logic should be something along these lines:

Some fraction of a point per second carrying the flag carrier, up to a maximum of 15 or so
Some fraction of an adrenaline percentage per second carrying the flag carrier, up to a maximum of 25 or so

In some ways the driver is really doing far more than the carrier in capping!

That's why I asked the transporter to earn points too, my cinematic escapes need to be rewarded!

Good work, work, work, work, work superpig!

:) Any other realistic suggestions will be considered.

Any actual usable code that will run on a demo-friendly server and improve the game would be appreciated...

well niigel once spoke about a face classic with 4 towers, then 4 flags,four teams and then the rock is set like a cross...
would be awesome but it may not be demo version friendly

Yeah - 4 teams is fun a few times (only) and not demo-server friendly.

I helped out with some code for Freon 4 teams. We got it working, but it wasn't as fun.
