Script Pack by SBS mac

Post  DirTyDeeDs on Mon Jul 20, 2009 5:34 pm

These templates should aid mapmaking. I have yet to explore them.

sbsmac wrote:I have decided to release my PVP script pack in the hope that it will encourage others to create more CTF/DM/TDM/FF maps. The most notable aspect of the script pack is that it allows users to create a PVP map by adding just a few markers to a map; NO knowledge of scripting/triggers or other advanced aspects of edititing are required. The pack comes with an 18 page manual that walks beginners through the process.

It is quite possible to create a basic CTF in less than 5 minutes using this pack.

Please use this thread to report bugs and request features. I'll also regularly post updates as I work on them.

Read the manual here.

The good folks over at dev-heaven have been kind enough to host a project space for me at http://dev-heaven.net/projects/show/sbsmac-pvpsp so feel free to pop in over there. I'd be interested in listing missions created with the pack there as well as hosting them on the SBS server.

===============================================
15/7/09 V1.4 now released
Fixed in this release:-
* Borders are now 'semi-planes', ie they divide the map into two regions along an infinitely long line. This makes them more convenient to use. The documentation has been updated to explain this.
* Fixed a bug where elliptical spawnzones and minefields would not work correctly if they were circular or if the b-axis was longer than the a-axis.
* The scoring string has been modified slightly to fit more neatly in the hint window.
* Scoring has been made more robust and now relies on the side of the flag rather than the side of the player which could change after a player TK'ed.

===============================================
11/7/09 V1.3 now released
Fixed in this release:-
* Music now plays at end of mission
* Reporting score by flags/flagtouches is changed to reporting score by side.
* Borders, spawnzones, and minefields are now solid areas and can be elliptiical or rectangular depending upon the shape of the marker used. Used markers called 'minefield', 'minefield_1' etc to create solid minefields.
* It is possible to have multiple spawn-protection zones so that more complicated safezones can be constructed
* Minefields and bordesrs now use the 'keep out' sign rather than gravecrosses.

===============================================

10/7/09 V1.2 release
* Weapon selection dialog now works correctly
* Building levelling now disabled by default
* Introductory text now states this is an Arma2 script pack


===============================================

Any other ideas and suggestions most welcome.
