Addon suggestion: MapPatcher

#1

Hi !

Here’s a suggestion for an addon I really appreciated on my TTT server that Muffin told me to suggest : MapPatcher.
It used to be sold on GMS then the owner decided to open-source it, and it’s available here.

Here’s the deal : this addon provides a simple tool to delimit areas and volumes of any shape. With this tool, you are provided with multiple brush types : player clips, prop clips, normal clips, bullet clips, forcefields, hurt / kill clips, remover, you get the point. So, here are some use cases :

  • Block access to some map exploits / areas that should not be reached
  • Prevent camping in T rooms / other areas where that shouldn’t happen (by gradually hurting the player over time till he leaves / dies)
  • Prevent players from carrying props in elevators / spots where collisions can cause server lag / crashes

And so on. You can easily create custom brushes so the possibilities are limitless, for example I created a “warn” brush that would put a huge warning in front of the screen when a player entered the nuclear launch button zone on ttt_nukehouse_b6 (to warn that they could RDM the whole server if they were Innocent :smiley:).

That’s it. I saw players use these “exploits” quite a few times so I though it would be interesting to suggest.

If you could add waterworld and use this to stop the lag the server would be even better then it already is :slight_smile:

You don’t want the warning to tell people that they could RDM the whole server, as that will guarantee the RDM of the whole server

It would definitely be fun for some time!

If it works the way you’re saying it does, then it would be a really great idea tbh.
