$health, $weapon, etc for /say_team

Postby lavacano201014 » Tue Jun 23, 2015 5:15 pm UTC

An idea stolen from Urban Terror. Mostly handy for binds. For instance:

Code: Select all

/say_team ^3I could use some ^AHELP ^3here... ^2(HP: $health, carrying $weapon)

[H] Lavacano Ozols (ur mom's house xDxD): I could use some HELP here... (HP: 27, carrying Las Gun)

In Quake-based games I tend to keep a basic set of status and basic communication binds. This prevents me from stopping in-place to press Y and type "HELP" into chat. Having these "variables" for binds would be handy to communicate exactly how much help I need :V

Good idea, we'll look into implementing it.

We already have this. Just slightly different. You can do $p_*$ I think, where p_* are cvars that list various things about you (weapon, class, hp, location).

Yes, for example I have in my autoexec.cfg:
bind f10 modcase !shift,!alt "/say \"\$p_hp\$ HP\"" "/say \"HP?\""

When I press F10, my HP are displayed in the general chat. This way, at the end of a good fight the enemy I have just killed knows I only have 2 HP left. Shift + F10 asks "HP?" in the chat for when I am the one who's dead and it survived.
