Gravity Lotto
« on: March 22, 2007, 08:30:22 AM »
So, like, a few of us were chatting yesterday on Vanilla about my impeccable taste in choosing maps with interesting options and the subject of the old "gravity lotto" was brought up. For those who don't know about that its simply manipulating the Q2 gravity value to either float to some degree or being almost pinned to the floor. Anyway the guys I was talking to it really missed it. They could do more trick jumps and get to spots that are normally inaccessable. When console used to play around with it lotsa people didn't like it as well - seeing it as just another gimmick. Bunch of purists. So I was just wondering if we could add it to the list of mymap parameters (-fd, +ia, -ws etc) with maybe a timer on it like IA so it doesn't get abused. So it doesn't get too variable with numeric values and such, maybe just have 2 - one for the usual float (maybe sv_gravity 400) and one similar to Jupiter's gravity to confound the jumpers.

I await feedback.

i'd like to see it back in action.

i'd even like to see it in mutant.

It would be special if it were spread out to be not very often.  i prefer it being random then picked as in mymap settings.  But like once every 2.5 hours would be nice.

If it doesnt go back on vanilla, vanilla2 would be a nice place for it.

Was it actualy a lotto?  or just console messn around?

Here are excerpts from the old perl script that used to run the xquake map rotations:

Quote

  my $lotto_ok = (time - $last_gravlotto_time) > $MIN_GRAVLOTTO_INTERVAL;
  my $funky_grav = 0;

  if ($new_map_name eq 'space'  &&  $lotto_ok  &&  (rand() >= 0.95)) {
    $funky_grav = 1;
    respond("rcon sv_gravity 800");
  }

  if ($lotto_ok  &&  rand() >= 0.95) {
    $funky_grav = 1;
    respond("rcon sv_gravity 400");
  }

  sleep 18;

  if ($funky_grav) {
    $last_gravlotto_time = time;
    respond("!all play items/protect3;play items/protect3;play items/protect3;play items/protect3;play items/protect3;play items/protect3;play items/protect3;play items/protect3");
    respond("rcon say Gravity Lottery: sv_gravity=\$sv_gravity");
  }


:D
