TOPIC: Climate vote command for random climate servers

Climate vote command for random climate servers 2 weeks 2 days ago #6845

Hi !

Could it be possible to create extra command for random climate servers, for voting next map climate?
Instead of current way, when you have climate randoming each time server starts/restarts. Players would have extra option to vote via ingame command, what next map climate could be.
Command for that could be !votenextclimate, after which players could give their vote as follows:
!votenextclimate followed by climate number (#1 temperate, #2 arctic, #3 desert, #4 toyland).
- Vote example: !votenextclimate #1.
Voting lasts maximum of 2 minutes, or until all clients have given their vote.
If all clients should quit during voting time, voting process is canceled.
If new !votenextclimate command is executed, new climate voting starts, previous result is erased.
If !votenextclimate commands is executed during voting process, it gives error to person who tried executing it, that voting is still in progress and new vote command canĀ“t be executed.
Time between each time !votenextclimate can be executed, should be set to "some seconds/minute", in order to avoid multiple continous command executions.

Now after voting process ends, game is not automatically restarted yet ! -> this gives good option to start voting process, before current game is still in progress.
Vote result climate, is set after automatic server restart (if previous game finished with goal reached) or by player executing command !voterestartgame or !voterestart .

hi!
Currently it's not possible, because !vote commands communicate with server controller ( xShunter ) but not directly with the game. Not sure if even possible the controller (or any plugin) change that .cfg setting ( landscape ).
Currently it's more like a "hack" on game code with a ON/OFF option (stored on .cfg file too) to randomize climate and saves it on the mentioned setting in the .cfg file. Only after the map is generated.

Anyway, the suggestion is very good, thank you :)
