SPRAY INSPECTION SYSTEM
All Forum Members
In game, you can now walk up to a spray, look at it, and inspect it to see who sprayed it. This is only available to UKCS Forum members who have entered their STEAM_X:X:XXXXXX in to their forum profile. The user must also have accepted the forum Confirmation Email.
To use this feature bind a key of your choice to the "ukcs_spray" command. Eg:
bind "p" "ukcs_spray"
Now, when you rejoin the server you can inspect sprays by walking up to them, look towards the middle of the spray, and press 'p' (or what ever key you bound). You must be no further away than a valid spraying distance.
You will see a 'looking beam' that locks on to the center of the spray you are looking at, and a display box will appear telling you about that spray. You can then 'Complement' the owner of the spray by pressing the menu option. There is also a menu option for logging sprays that are unsuitable for use on UKCS, like extreme porn sprays. (DO NOT MISUSE THAT).
Other people will be able to see your 'looking beam' and which spray you are looking at.
You can also use the UKCS Spray Inspection system when you are dead or a spectator. You can fly around looking at sprays and see who posted them in the same way. When you are dead, you can examine sprays from further away than alive and nobody else sees the 'looking beam'.
As other people will see you using this feature, they will ask "How did you do that?". Please tell them it uses the 'ukcs_spray' command and they need to register on the forums and they can use it too. This helps bring in new members. If somebody tries to use the ukcs_spray command and they are not a forum member they get a message box telling them they need to join to use it.
When you examine somebody's spray, you will also get options to warn the player directly, kick or even ban them for 10 minutes if they are spraying nasty images.
You have already had this feature for a couple of weeks and you have the most options available to you on a spray inspection. You can examine sprays from a long distance when dead or alive, but people will only see you looking if you are alive and close to it. If a user choose 'Report offensive spray', then all Admins and Vote Kickers are given details of who is reporting it and who they are reporting.
