AS-BP2-Outback[E]

Post by darkelf » Sun 11 Mar , 2018 8:14 pm

Change log 4/30/2014:-Replaced second to last obj with proximity obj actor instead of the trigger objective that worked for both teams and sometimes caused obj to freeze up and become unable to be completed.

Change log 3/11/2018:
-Added blocking volume just under the ion cannon volume. (Received reports that players are now utilizing the ion volume to help them enter and abuse an invulnerability state by allowing the ion cannon volume to destroy there cars which results in passenger or driver to remain with full use of weapons and unable to be killed.)

> Gil-galad: is it a FEATURE? then, you need to play the map better and stop complaining.
In the future, use common sense.. in no way would any admin or any sane minded person consider an instance where a player becomes godlike via a bug(and takes advantage of it) a lidget, acceptable practice or a "FEATURE".
Also If you find bugs in maps report them to forums.. I can't see or remember everything so put it on forums for all to see. In this case I'll hold off on banning, but based on the text above.. I really think a ban is warranted.

Maybe add a note to the glitching rule to include exploits and bug abuse. While 'I saw a lot of other people doing it' isn't a defense, some people don't know how to suicide when they get stuck like that so it would have to be a case by case thing.

Well, it's good, that you decided not to ban Gil, because, it was abused a lot in the past.

If there is any other maps that this happens a lot on report them away. But common sense really is the key point in this bug. The whole concept of I saw Joey, bob and Fred doing this and they didn’t get banned thought process is stupid and easily smacked down.

it happens on volcano race sometimes when you crash into the ion cannon targeting area but generally you're well below the level of being able to harm anyone

Does your blocking volume block anything else? Just wondering if it makes the SPMA useless

As far as I can tell that seems unaffected. However I didn't test for that. Let me know if it is effected.

Yah that can be fixed by just doing a kill volume instead. I'll let Earl decide what should be done there.

Oh that reminds me too, I was wondering how people felt about vehicle despawns. Currently it is possible drive back and use the SPMA for the lock objective, which definitely doesn't seem intended, and you can also go back and fetch the Paladin on the final objective which makes attacking it almost impossible because you're only on foot with spam weapons.

If changing this would annoy people then fair enough, just wondered on public opinion.

Pretty easy to fix. I think they should be disabled. They could seriously unbalance map. Ill wait a day or two to see if there is any good argument not nerf that.

There must be other ways to get the same result than messing with spawn times.

A volume that is created when last obj is available to block access to the paladin/SPMA?
