    Ghost Tank Lite

    About:
    By now you have probably already heard or tried my Ghost Tank plugin for L4D. Simple stuff that I believed the tank need as the AI is really shitty.

    But as time went on I began to play more and more with friends, and stopped pubbing all together. This is when I realized my Ghost Tank was a bit... well bloated with stuff I didn't need for my friends matches.

    So Ghost Tank Lite was born as a offspring of my Ghost Tank plugin. Itís pretty simple. The tank is frozen and ghosted until player takes control.
    Rock throw is disabled for the AI, incapacitated fix by DrThunder included, and of course features fire immunity for a short while.

    Neither fire speed nor multi tank support. This is intended for L4D2, should work on L4D, but I claim the right to NOT provide support, encase it doesn't.

    Description:
    Upon tank spawn, the tank will be frozen and ghosted until a player takes over.

    Cvars:
    A configuration file will be automatically created for you upon first run, in /cfg/sourcemod/ called GhostTankLite.cfg
    Code:
    // Sets whether the plugin is active or not.
    // -
    // Default: "1"
    l4d2_gtl_enable "1"
    
    // The amount of time the tank is fire immune (secs), after player takes control. 0 for disable fire immunity.
    // -
    // Default: "3.0"
    l4d2_gtl_fireimmune "3.0"
    
    // Normally tanks would incap survivors on the spot. This fixes it and makes the Survivors still take a punch and fall back with force, before incapping them. All credits for this fix, goes to DrThunder on AlliedModders.
    // -
    // Default: "1"
    l4d2_gtl_fixpunch "1"
    
    // Sets whether the plugin will make the selection cvar use the old time for selecting the tank (4 sec in L4D2, 3 sec in L4D).
    // -
    // Default: "1"
    l4d2_gtl_oldselecttime "1"
    Changelog:
    Code:
    Version 0.91a
    ~ Fixed entity validation
    
    Version 0.91
    + Better tank death detection, for some reason the tank_killed event doesn't get fired (especially in finales) replaced with player_death.

    - Removed ghost cvar. Tanks will now be ghosted by default.
    ~ Set the default fire immune time to 3 seconds.
    
    Version 0.90a
    ~ Accidentally removed a part of the code that prevented AI tanks throwing rocks, fixed.

    I might as well answer the most obvious question now.

    Have I stopped developing on the original Ghost Tank?

    No.
    I am still working on the multi tank support. Its a hard nut to crack but my head is cracking as fast as it can.
    I will update it soon as I can.

    Thanks alot, putting this on my server now. I would like to hear if you also could create a "lite" version for L4D(1)?

    It should work in L4D, as there is nothing in the code that makes the plugin ONLY L4D2. All events are the same so yeah, it should work.

    Since I put this plugin on my server, I've had numerous instances where the first person as Tank would pass it on it on to the second person, the second person would get skipped and then the Tank would be passed again to a third person.

    Happening in my server as well, likes to skip over the second Tank controller and go to a third or back to first if there are only 2 players on the team. After that person losses control the AI takeovers.
