New Medals above player's heads - now with objective medals

Postby TC on Sun Dec 10, 2006 9:37 pm

Gandy and myself have been working on this for a while and its been released tonight:

If you are a current holder of most kills by a weapon, you get a medal above your head at the start of the round. You also get a medal for top current T or CT. If you have several medals then they stack on top of each other.

If you type /rank, that has been extended with weapon score info. It shows you for your top weapons how far behind you are behind the medal holder (or top if you are top and you'll have the medal).

I think this looks pretty cool in game and may encourage a few more people to try for weapon awards which are within anyone's reach with time.

There are also in game objective medals which are a blue colour. These cover:

- Hossie rescues (at least 1 rescued)
- Bombs planted
- Bombs defuse

Each time an objective is achieved on a map a medal is awarded. These last the duration of that map.

The highest scoring CT and T medals have been moved in to the map objective category (ie, they are now blue).

And there begins the vicious cycle...

Most deaths...

Get a medal...

Medal is above your head, everyone aims for you...

You die a lot...

Most deaths...

Get a medal...

Bishy watch out! :lol:

Good idea though, would like to see it in action sometime (still not got a new PC).

Instead of displaying 'Top' when you are first in an award, how about displaying how much lead you have on the person behind you? :)

wen u type rank u can see how many u are behind the leader.

How about a sign saying 1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8,9,10 ? see the top 10 people or top 5?

and is it possible to turn this off, in settings? *incase someone asks and doesnt want them*

I do like spawning and looking up and seeing a T above myhead telling me i got most kills :D

The medals appear when you spawn, after you move the medals stay above the spot you spawned in and dissapear a short time after, nothing to worry about mate :)
