I was just checking out the server, and have a couple of plugin suggestions.  One is public:
[CS:S] Bot2Player which allows players to take over BOTs after they died.  That's one of my babies.

I've got another baby which isn't published, but it is modified version of a published plugin.  Mine is called Cheers! and let's players make sounds after certain winning events.  Great way for players that don't have mic to express themselves audibly.   It's attached (don't forget to whitelist the custom sounds).

BBT, please take a look at these when you get a chance.

Thanks Very Happy

I could have sworn I replied to this...Ah, I see now that was a PM.  Yes, those 2 plugins are working great.  In the meantime, I've noticed a couple of other things that are fairly crucial:

AFK management.  I thought we had some plugins for this before, but there don't seem to be any now.  There are different alternatives out there, I suggest the 2 I've been using for years, along with their settings.  I use 2 different plugins, one for general AFK and one specifically for when the bomb carrier is AFK.  

This is the AFK manager:https://forums.alliedmods.net/showthread.php?p=708265.
Unfortunately for some reason I don't have the source for the one I use, but looking at the page, it seems like I'm using an older version - mine doesn't have auto-updater, colors, etc.  I've attached the .cfg file that I use.  The stock .cfg file created by the plugin has some whacky settings.

You'll need the DHooks extension to make that work:  https://forums.alliedmods.net/showthread.php?t=180114.

AFKBomb:  https://forums.alliedmods.net/showthread.php?p=1429371?p=1429371.
It's a good plugin, except it doesn't have it's own .cfg file.  I just put the settings in server.cfg:

Code: [ Select all ]


// afkbomb.smx
// afkbombversion command gives version
afkbomb 3 // How long, in seconds, before the delayed "state" check. 0 = plugin disabled. 1+ = enabled. Default 2.
afkbomb_freezetime 1 // If "mp_freezetime" value is added to the timer that will run the delayed "state" first check. Default 0 (disabled).
afkbomb_action 1 // What to do when someone is considered afk. 1=Drop. 0=Give to random player (not recommended since it could be exploited).
afkbomb_msg 1 // Enable/Disable notification of afkbomb_action being trigger. T's are notified if dropper, all notified if random player gets bomb.
afkbomb_latecheck 3 // Number of latechecks to do before dropping the bomb. 0 = disable latechecks. Default 2.
afkbomb_latecheckdelay 3 // Time between 2 latechecks to drop the bomb, in seconds. Min. 1.0, Default 5.0.


The most important one is the admin-allspec.  As it stands now, admins can't spectate players on the other team.  You used to be able to, but they changed that a few years back.  It does leave a chance for admin abuse, but the only alternative for admins is to either spectate (not play) or join the other team, and those suck in my opinion.  I used an admin-only message in my advertisements to discourage admins from using the plugin to gain a tactical advantage.

There is no rush.  I'm going away in a week.  Not sure how long I'll be gone actually.  It will probably be months.

I have arrived in beautiful San Diego, been here over a month actually.  It'll be awhile before I get back behind a gaming keyboard.  The last surviving machine is in a storage space, and I'll be lucky if I can get it out and back online later on this year, 2014 (God, I hope so).
