Friendly Fire

We have introduced a feature to override players vote influence towards Friendly Fire. This is configured on a permapconfiguration and introduced to restrict friendly fire regardless of the vote influence. We have done this because some maps clearly do not work well when friendly fire is on and will be adding a list of maps to the pool over time and tweaking this. This also partly resolves the team attacking and team killing during maps where people do it for the sake of it.

Note: Admins with the appropriate permissions can override this command however, please do not ask us to turn it on where it is clearly a bad idea. Feedback is welcome on maps we have it activated and maps to add for this feature.

AFKBombDrop

We have worked in a new feature where if a player is AFK, the bomb will drop allowing players to collect it and carry on with the match. This is currently deployed on the server and will be introducing new features soon. How does this plugin work?

1a. Plugin checks if player with the bomb is AFK. This includes movement via mouse cursor, button pressing or character movement.
1b. If plugin detects none of the above has occurred, player drops the bomb.
2a. We then have a variable to check spawn time to midgame time to check for the second bomber AFK timer.
2b. If player is camping and does not move via mouse cursor, button pressing or character movement, bomb is dropped after x time.

With the above setup (which is still being tested for optimal timings), the bomb will drop and announce to the player that they have dropped the bomb and also send a message to the Terrorist chat that the bomb has dropped.

Planned AFK Bomb Changes

1. Edit plugin to include freezetime check.
2. Edit plugin to include a slap feature which will check against players camping for large periods of time when not going for the objective as the sole remaining player or one of a few remaining players on the team. This will not include damage and is only going to be used to make sure players are not sitting to waste time.

The second option will be configured for a trial basis, we understand you do not wish to be bombarded with such things, but there is a lot of complaints regarding this and we are trying to find a middle ground.
