FavThisServer mutator

Post by Buggie » Thu Sep 08, 2022 6:39 am

Tiny and easy mutator.
Periodically (once per minute) check client Favorites and if this server not in favorites, notify player:

If player write in chat !fav, then this server will be added into player favorites.

Install:
Add to mutator list FavThisServer.FavThisServer (or to ServerActors - preferred way)
Add to ServerPackages FavThisServer.
FavThisServer.zip

nice idea..

what happens if clients don't want to add to favs?
- will server keep spamming them to add to favs?

Yes. Will keep spamming. Server owner can set interval in config.

I think one message per minute is fine. Also it goes to death messages area.
When actual gameplay going there appear too many messages per minute and nobody bother this fact.

I think spamming each minute is a bit too much. I would like it to notify the player only once per map

Currently you can not do that. First message appear only after delay time. But you can set it to 0 or big number. In this case it will not notify at all.
And use any other mutator which produce hints, for notify user as you want.

depending on the timer set for the game... lets say TimeLimit=10mins .. then set the timer in the Favs mod to 5minutes
and it will display only once (mid game) each game.

Yea. In sugar world. Where all players read all messages in game.
From my experience, players not read even CriticalEvent messages, which appear as big blue text at center of screen and much more intrusive.
MH prove that. You write same text in chat and they "Oooooohhh, what is hellllll IDK that!".

So your message in mid-game simple left unnoticed. And if you ask about it, most player will be wondered if that exists at all.

For example you can enter to my VCTF server and play here. After that can go and tell me, which message be on 10th minute of 20th minutes limit.
I am sure, if you play, you can not do that.

Well I was going to include it in competitive pugs, spamming the message each 10 minutes or so is too invasive if my time limit is 30-40 min per map. I wish some of your great mutators had more customizability.

PUG server not need this stuff at all. PUG server mean you gather players in discord, so add server to favorites useless and more even dangerous, It is not "free for enter server". If there happen PUG you not want come additional players. If there nothing you wanna it be empty for next possible PUG.

This thing good only for public open servers for make players return to it, if they like it.

I modified RebootOnNextMap and want to modify GiftFromDecorationMutator. But better discuss via PM in order not to derail this thread.
