Hey everybody, hope you're enjoying life. I have exciting news regarding Project Zombie's custom plugins! I want to make this post specific to the code I'm currently working on in hopes to receive feedback from you guys. There are two plugins as of right now, Care Package Drops and Crackshot Guns Enhanced.
Care Package Drops:
You may have an idea about this plugin from previous posts. Its functionality is to create scenarios that drop packages full of rare loot. Everybody's compass will be able to point to the drop and cause a firefight amongst players to get that loot. I still need to work on the spawning algorithm for where the drops are placed, to avoid a care package spawn to be right next to a player.
What I ask of you guys for this plugin is where should the drops be? What should be the lore of the drop?
The idea I had (and actually used to test the plugin) was a helicopter lands on top of Minetech. The plugin is able to copy the helicopter from a location outside the map, paste it on Minetech's roof, and display a one line message to the server.
Crackshot Guns Enhanced:
I decided to group the Breakable Windows and Gun Scope plugin into this mega-plugin that will contain anything related to CrackShot guns. My idea right now is to add durability to weapons and display this information in a cool way. For example, a brand new AK-47 will have durability 'Factory New' and have a high accuracy (91.38) whereas a 'Rusty' AK-47 will have a low accuracy (77.56) and will most likely break after a few magazines have been shot from it.
My question is what would be a good tier list for gun durability? I definitely want to include 'Rusty' as a low durability; 'Factory New' is actually from CS:GO, so lets try to be original!
My second question is what other stats should each gun display? I have to include the ammo type. I could remove the accuracy percentage but I realized with this plugin I can randomize the accuracy so all guns are slightly different. Would be cool to see these specs in my opinion. And obviously the tier of the gun will be displayed.
So that's all I have for this week. If you read over this entire article, think about those questions I asked and post your ideas down below or shoot me a message! I check this website everyday so if you ever need me keep shooting me messages and I'll reply pretty quickly.
TL;DR: I'm working on custom plugins. Want fan ideas for implementation. Read the article if you're interested!
