New Game Mode: Ultimate Survival
« on: August 14, 2007, 04:38:56 pm »
Ultimate Survival
[/size]

The goal: to survive

This game mode is broken up into levels.  The more levels you survive the more points you gain.  When you have been eliminated, you're out for the level, but you'll be placed back in when the next level starts.
The best part is that it's extremely easy for someone to make a new level and even easier for server-hosts to add these levels to their current ones.
Use /reload to reload the levels.txt file - no need to bring down the whole server!  Use /remove to take eliminate yourself.

Please read the ReadMe.txt if you want to host a server to learn what settings to use.  The only map to be used is the survive.pms map - levels are designed to be compatible with only this map.

To create your own levels, open the zyx.pas and read how I have my levels setup.  Make sure not to use existing procedure names.
Use timer := x; to set the time (in seconds) to run your level.  Set X to -1 to turn off the timer function - you must set timer := 0; when you want the script to go to the next level.
Always run a check to make sure the script is still in your level:
Code: [Select]
while (timer > 2) and (LevelList[curlevel - 1] = 'zyx3') doThis is the main loop in the level 'zyx3'.

When you use CreateBullet, set the player ID to 1 (spectating bot) - all weapons do 0 damage but if the ID is set to 1 then a hit player will be automatically removed.  You may manually remove a player using the RP(ID) function in Survival.pas and you may manually bring back a player using the BBP(ID) function in Survival.pas.  You should put all your levels into one .pas file.  A level currently lasts about 35 seconds on average.  People don't want to have to wait too long when they're out.  Also note that when a player somehow happened to catch a weapon, the weapon is immediately removed!

PLEASE test levels for ANY bugs before publishing them.  To publish your levels, use the following format:

Author:  zyxstand
Number of Levels:  5
Level Names:  zyx1, zyx2, zyx3, zyx4, zyx5
Description:  Simple knives flying around.

As you can see from the zyx.pas file, a level can be as short as a total of 12 lines (my highest has a total of only 18)!  Do not limit yourself to making it be knives killing people.  You can be as creative as you want.  However, I believe you might get errors if you try to run a threaded function within your threaded function (all levels are loaded threaded).
PM me your level so I can verify it and add it up here!

The attached image has some useful info on the map.

Hey miketh, I had a ReadMe in the scripts\Ultimate Survival\ folder which I guess you didn't read because it wasn't there so obvious.  Download the newest version and read the ReadMe Survival.txt file and change your settings to those indicated.  These settings are there for good reasons!

omg... it works perfectly for me:
when you first join you get put into a little room.
as soon as the next level starts you get moved outside the room into the arena
You may have to WAIT 35 seconds for it to start.  If you die you get taken out.  It's really fun and it works.
Just PLEASE read the ReadMe text file it comes with - there are some important server settings to be set!
