New command for staff/ep

Recommended Posts

What your suggestion is: Make is easier to swap people

Scriptfodder/workshop link: N/A

Any additional information: My idea is basically you could make a command called !swap @ infected for example, so that you dont have to go into tab menu on every individual player and when it is infected it takes even longer cause the job is far down. It would make it easier to do last stands and make it so that people who die in last stands dont have to wait as long to be swapped.

If we have someone who is comfortable coding new ULX commands.

Another possible solution would be a very simple SWEP that you just point at someone and it changes job when you press mouse1. I have never coded anything in Gmod so I can't really provide much help or have enough knowledge to input. But that doesn't sound like too complicated a job, comparitively.

To my knowledge there is a console command which you can use which is 10x quicker than using !eventm 

it is something like [name] rp_jobcommand or rp_jobcommand [name] and it will change the job of anyone with that name.

to any staff reading this. You might be able to bypass whitelist and job limits so enjoy 🙂

Tbh, Using the tab menu is very easy to use and quite efficient so I don't think there is a point.

I know its easy, but it still takes longer, especially sometimes if there is no SOD to help EP, it can take long to change 10 people whilst also having to manage the event. It would be easier to just spam a binded key and have everybody swapped in 5 sec. Like when giving building tools you have 2 binds you just spam 2 binds and have the claim done in 2 sec.

Problem with swep is just everytime they die and respawn they need to be given it again and also tped out everytime. It needs to be a job

Not a SWEP for the player, for the admin to shoot at the player and it will swap them to a job.

 

But yeah to be totally honest using tab menu is no bother to me either, B1 is very easy and don't even need scroll, and infected has become like muscle memory now.

Although I can see this with being useful, I think if an EP is struggling with changing people, they could just ask in admin chat for some help with Job Changing claims. However, if this can be implimented fairly easily then I see no reason not to.

Quite sure there is already a command like !forcechange or /forcechange but people aren't using it

I've tested a few commands and ask a few other staff members and None of us can find a command that does the function

I am pretty sure there is, but with the Addon I mentioned in my previous reply, quite a few DarkRP commands get replaced with proper ULX commands ("!" instead of "/"). This would make them usable through !menu and would make it easier to do things related to the server as a whole, for example !addmoney for store purchases, !tellall for (event) announcements or !jobban / !jobunban for blacklists.

It sounds like a great idea, however it may be difficult to find someone who is either:

1) Able to fix the Dark RP commands.

2) Create a new command for the server.

It would make staff's lives a lot easier during events.

I found a useful addition of commands called ULX DarkRP Commands which includes an array of commands, aswell as a !setjob command. It basically replaces DarkRP Commands (which can be cancer sometimes) with proper ULX commands.

I think Nathan has quite abit of experience using LUA, so if he's wanting to and he can. it would be more  efficient then installing a full set of DarkRP commands

As nathan said you can use rp_(jobcommand) (Name) in your console. So for example: rp_ace defrexx

Extra commands are not necessary tbh
