    Description
    This plugin creates a 'roar' skill for the tank. Players just click on the middle mouse button to use this ability. When used, survivors around a certain radius from the tank will be knockbacked. Depending on the server, the knockback can be towards the tank or away from the tank. This opens up some interesting strategies.


    Features
    • Adjustable area of effect (radius from tank).
    • Adjustable damage done to survivors.
    • Adjustable cooldown.
    • Adjustable force of knockback.
    • Adjustable direction of knockback. (towards or away from tank)
    • Many other adjustable aspects of the roar.

    Awesome!!!

    This is the same idea I wanted, expect that I wanted the tank to like stamp/stomp his feet around him which would knock Survivors back.

    Will test soon.

    Some questions please.

    1. Does this include a sound when the skill is used? If not, can you add one please?
    2. Also what is the power of the knockback, is it the same as being knocked back from a Boomer exploding?
    3. The tankroar_damage, how is damaged worked out? If I set 5, does that cause 5 points of HP damage?

    That is a good suggestion, I recommend the system that DJ WEST uses on his plugins which is like...

    Quote:
    0 - disable
    1 - chat
    2 - hint
    3 - instructor hint
    This would be good.

    1. Yes, it does include a sound.
    2. its not the same as boomer knockback. the roar will cause survivors to fly backwards.
    3. yea. if u set to 5 it'll do 5 dmg.

    Regarding the instructor hint i'll add to my to do list but for the other one, i dont have l4d1, testing it would be difficult.

    You should add a ton of checks before pushing Survivors around, such as being pounced/smokered/ridden

    and it would be interesting if they had different effects..
    a pounced survivor stays where he is, and can get up.. while the hunter goes flying
    a jockeyed survivor goes flying with the jockey and when they land, the jockey falls off.
    etc.
