View Full Version : Firing Range Server

7th Mar 2001, 10:43 PM
A server thats sole purpose is to allow players to compete in the firing range and only shoot the paper targets, shooting a person will get you kicked the first time, second time gets banned, if there is such an option. It would exist so players can show off their target range skills and have mini shooting tournaments. What do you think?

i'm pretty sure the kick and ban part can be done(everyone on smae team w/ no freindly fire). not sure how you would score the shooting games though..

just shoot me already.

just get an "unbiased" player to stand out by the target and note where the bullets impact. this should take care of any problems with decals not staying and such.

i really like this idea, it will be pretty hard to implement and keep organized i think but sound like lots of fun none the less...

i pity the fool who don't eat my cereal!

I was planning to do something similar.
Something like a 'bootcamp' where 'veterans' could teach the 'newbies' how Infiltration is supposed to be played.

There are some problems however :
1) there is no reliable scoring system on those firing ranges. Nothing beats a highscore-table with your name in the top ten of 'best' shooters.

You could try to look at the targets yourself, but on my system the decals often disappear before I have a chance to look at them.

Getting someone else to take a look, means he has to risk getting shot (by accident of course) ...

2) the targetdummies won't stay down. A set/reset-button would make it easier to see how bad you are.

I'm thinking a mutator or a program that would be attached or something, to the targets, and records and logs your accuracy... kinda like ngworld stats, just on that one server where you can view scores as you enter by way of MOTD.

What would be cool is if you could run 2 maps at the same time on a server, and when you die you respawn in the firing range (this also solves the problem of dead guys using the phone or rogerwilco or something to give away enemy positions) Dunno if it's possible though.
