Archimedes
« on: August 20, 2012, 01:26:31 am »



This is just a small eye candy plugin. When a player is killed, Archimedes is spawned to fly off into the sunset. Or the top of the map. Whichever you find more emotionally pleasing.

You'll need the Archimedes sprite and resource folder which comes with the plugin to make this work.

Future ideas I am considering for this plugin are only having him come out of scouts or intel carriers, making Archimedes pathfind, adding dead body sprites of Archimedes poking his way out of the corpse before flying away, and allowing players to shoot Archimedes down.

Something I found is that Archemedes always flys out of every person.

Yeah, he does.

I didn't want to add conditionals to seeing the bird while programming him, since finding a scenario along the lines of "If you die as an uber ready scout, spawn a bird" is just arbitrarily difficult, and once I finished, I didn't add any extra conditionals as well. Since the plugin is also meant to garner support for a possible vanilla implementation, people generally want to see whats changed quickly, and the way to do that is (pretty much) to spawn more Archimedes.

20 august 2012 you say? Perfect thread to necro
Anyway before the mods kill me, here's an updated version of this plugin:
-Usable in 60fps and with deltatime
-Cleaned code following the coding style guide
-Learned something, thanks wareya
-Added it to the directory

Should this be in the game with a low chance? :heheangel: :heheangel: :heheangel:
