Added a new cvar "gal_emptyserver_mapfile" which specifies a empty server map cycle list.
Added a new cvar "gal_unnominate_disconnected" to remove a disconnected player nominations.
Added a new cvar "gal_endonround_countdown" to show the countdown, drop weapons and buy grenades.
Added a new cvar "gal_endonround_msg" to indicates how to announce the last round.
Fixed the cvar "gal_endonround" that indicates when a map should end when time runs out.
Removed an unused cvar "gal_vote_mapfile" as we just use the current map cycle file.
Fixed concurrency problem between mp_maxrounds, mp_winlimit and mp_timelimit.
Added a basic unit test structure for developers/scripters.
Added weighted votes that allows admins to have their vote counted more.

2015-10-14 | v1.2-alpha2 ~ v1.2-alpha2.hotfix1
Improved some variables meaning.
Fixed broken re-opt (RunOff) vote.
Fixed automatic changelevel at normal vote map, after a successful 'Stay Here' option wins.
Improved code readability and added some new code documentation.
Removed weighted votes that allows admins to have their vote counted more.

2015-10-10 | v1.2-alpha1
Fixed server restart after change timelimit to 0.
Fixed server timelimit re-change after change it to 0.
Fixed bug where it change the map right after a normal vote map finished.
Removed map end control, to the original AMXX Dev Team plugin 'nextmap.amxx'
Removed the feature to change server map, when the server is empty.
Removed the 'amx_nextmap' change to [vote in progress].
Removed the feature to allow round finish.
Removed the messages 'say currentmap' and 'say nextmap' to the AMXX 'nextmap.amxx'

activities but then sometimes not reset it to the original time limit afterwards.
No longer tries to print menus in color if the game mod doesn't support colored menus.
Fixed possible RTV exploit by introducing a delay before a single player can RTV after a
map change. It's the lesser of either 2 minutes or the value of gal_rtv_wait.
Added additional information to comments for gal_nom_mapfile, gal_vote_mapfile, and
gal_emptyserver_mapfile in galileo.cfg.
Changed default for gal_nom_prefixes from 1 to 0. In other words, the prefix functionality
will be turned off by default.
Will no longer overwrite an existing menu. This means if a player has another menu open when
the map vote starts, they won't see the map vote until the other menu is closed. It also means
that, after a player voted and if the server is showing the vote progress, if another menu
overwrites Galileo's, the progress won't be shown again until the other menu has been closed.
This only affects people that show the in-progress vote status.
Now obeys a setting of "0" for gal_endofmapvote. Would previously erroneously present a vote
regardless of the setting.
New CVAR, gal_sounds_mute, to indicate if any of the sentences spoken during various events are
muted. See galileo.cfg for more information.
Added code to handle automated version info from SVN. This is of no consequence to anyone but
me really, but I wanted to include it in the change log since it actually involves a change
to the code.
Removed benign code that was prepped for feature utilizing standard maps of each mod.
There is no longer any plans to add any information regarding standard maps as I see no use for it.
Removed the following language keys: GAL_STANDARD_NOTFOUND, GAL_STANDARD_TOOMANY, GAL_STANDARD_UNKNOWNMOD
Fixed the "vote filler groups" feature that was previously working incorrectly.

******************************** Un-Supported?Go to Top *******************************
People just saying it is broken/lagging and do not help providing the requested information at the main's page Support section, will be ignored.
I am not asking to you write code, I asking to just copy and paste something from your server. Then if you
cannot neither do just such a simple thing, it will be broken for ever or until you fix by yourself, or until
someday I/or someone else notice your problem on my/their server and copy and paste what I am asking.
If you cannot help me figure out what is wrong with the plugin, it is definitely not my problem, but it is all
your problem as, you will need to use it bugged or not use at all. Which is not relevant, you should use whatever
work better for your server, if you can find such. At least on my server it is working fine and I do not see
anything wrong with it. But if you are finding and fixing bugs and not releasing/sharing it, this is not good
from you to the others at all. Would you like I never shared the source code? That depends, if you got something
which works much better for your server, then this plugin is pretty much irrelevant to you and you would not care
whether I shared my coding or not.
Basically, I am assuming anyone which posts problems here and do not provide the requested information as trollers. Because:
I do not run a server where I can test behavior related to a running voting within several people.
I am not a magician or psychic to guess your server environment or how the plugin is behaving if you do not provide it.
Until now I was able to fix everything reported by users which collaborate.
Maybe he's tired of supporting them. Maybe he doesn't use those anymore so it
doesn't make sense for him to support them. You can fork them if you like. You
could be the next maintainer as it is open source.
It takes time to support repos. Supporting repos is work. I know because I
support a bunch. It is often a thankless job. People always want something, but
often don't want to put in effort to contribute (even if it's just a simple
donation). People don't like to read the documentation and love to ask a
question you've documented and answered hundreds of times. People don't like to
follow instructions you give them to get your support.
With that said, there are people who do contribute. And there are those who
occasionally give thanks (sometimes verbally and sometimes with donations and
sometimes with pull requests). Those are the people that usually give repo
maintainers the motivation to keep supporting the project.
In short, sometimes it can just get tiring. And if you've moved on from your
project (you don't even use it yourself anymore), it might not make sense to
keep supporting it. Only tito can answer exactly why. But I imagine he either
doesn't use them anymore and/or is tired of supporting so many repos.
And because it is the development version, the debugging is enabled. Go to around the 'line 87' and find:
#define DEBUG_LEVEL SomeNumber(s)
and change it to:
#define DEBUG_LEVEL 0

Galileo is on the folder `plugins/addons/amxmodx/scripting/galileo.sma`.
You can run the script on `installers/galileo.bat`. It will create all galileo files on the folder `installers\clean_setup\Galileo-VERSION`
It is a good start to use it within this new version, but as just it do not cover all current
features, see this whole thread and the "galileo.cfg" file contents for full speficiation.
The original plugin Galileo is written by Brad. This Galileo works as the original Galileo.
Moreover this Galileo has also special features for the Multi-Mod Manager plugin and
it stills can be used all alone. See the Change Log and Credits for more details.
It is highly recommended you to review the well-commented "galileo.cfg" to see
all the cvars' options you have with this plugin. It's located in the Attached ZIP
available at the Downloads section, and here below at:
// Galileo Configuration File////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////// This is the minimal setting file you ever need to use Galileo. //// All the other options not listed here are set to their default //// values specified on the default file `galileo.cfg` which comes //// with the plugin on the zip file Galileo-XXX.zip //////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////// Specifies the file to use which either holds the names of the maps,// one per line, that the vote will be filled with.//// Use "*" for all maps in the server's maps folder.// Use "#" for your mapcycle, i.e., whatever file is on the cvar 'mapcyclefile'.
gal_vote_mapfile "mapcycle.txt"// vote options
gal_vote_mapchoices 5// the vote last 20 seconds
gal_vote_duration 20// display a vote countdown timer
gal_vote_expirationcountdown 1// Indicates whether or not to perform a automatic end map voting
gal_endofmapvote 1// Specifies the maximum number of minutes/rounds/frags a map can be played.// If 0, it will always allow map extension.// If 1, it will always block map extension.
gal_extendmap_max_frags 1////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////// Using this file you will only get exactly the settings specified. //// If you want to customize better the Galileo behavior, open the //// default `galileo.cfg` file which comes with the plugin, and pick //// the options you want to and add/append them to this file. //////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////
The Galileo can:
Configure to display colored text messages.
Configure to always show the option "Stay Here" at any voting.
Configure to always show the countdown remaining vote time.
Manage RunOff vote between a map and "Stay Here".
Change the time limit to zero.
Manage/start end map vote with mp_maxrounds, mp_winlimit, mp_timelimit or mp_fraglimit (if available).
Configure to use the current mapcycle to nominate maps.
Configure to keep the initial server next map when nobody vote for next map.
To be easier learned to code new features as it has some code documentation.
Configure a map change to a popular map when the server is empty too much time.
Configure to give weighted votes to admins counting more points.
Configure to use all maps on maps folder to nominate maps.
Nominate maps by a map list menu.
Configure to allow the last round to finish before change to the next map.
Configure to show the vote progress as percent and count.
Configure to show the recent maps are displayed as a menu.
Configure to always see the currently vote progress.
Configure to always shows the voting option "None".
How to upgrade your Galileo?
Download the "galileo.amxx" and `data/lang/galileo.txt`
Replace your currently installed version.
It is done.
What will be the diference by upgrading your Galileo?
You will get bug fixes.
You will have new features.
If you want use the new features, download the new configuration files and update yours
using the new the cvars. If not, you will probably see nothing new, because all new
features are by default disabled. To keep everything new disabled, just do not install the
new configurations file at the '.configs/galileo/galileo.cfg', with the new colored lang file
at './data/lang/galileo.txt' location.
********************** Translation RequestGo to top ***********

I want to use your this plugin . but i am confused which .sma i will use
This installation is usually for AMXX 182. You can use this:
It is the same which is on the `Galileo-X.X.X-XXX.zip` file. The difference is it is already compiled.
So you do not need to compile the `.sma`
But you still need to download the `Galileo-X.X.X-XXX.zip` file within the resource files.
The file `Galileo-X.X.X-XXX.zip` contain all the files you need, including the `.sma`,
the lang file and the default settings file.
The file `Minimal_Configuration_File_(Opcional_Little-Options).zip` is the
smallest setting file you need to configure. You can download it if you want to use easy
settings to configure. This file is opcional.
The file `Simple_Configuration_File_(Opcional_Less-Options).zip` is a
smaller settings file. You can download it if you want to use the original settings by
`Brad's` version. This file is opcional.
Replace 'Galileo-XXX' by 'Galileo-3.2.2' [or the current version], and download the right zip file.
Download the file "Galileo-XXX.zip" at Downloads section.
Then take the contents of "Galileo-XXX" folder from "Galileo-XXX.zip", to your AMX Mod X folder usually at "yourGameMod/addons/amxmodx/". GameMod Examples:
czero, cstrike, ...
Compile the file 'galileo.sma' from the folder
"yourGameMod/addons/amxmodx/scripting" and put the compiled 'galileo.amxx' file to your
plugins folder usually at "yourGameMod/addons/amxmodx/plugins".
Put the next line to your "plugins.ini" file at "yourGameMod/addons/amxmodx/configs"
folder and disable the original "mapchooser.amxx" or any other map manager plugin, like
To use another mapcycle files which does not contain the maps you do not want to use by early hours.
********************** Features' listGo to top ******
Ability to "rock the vote".
Perfectly working for small or big servers within more than 2000 maps.
Map nominations to be used in the next map vote.
Runoff voting when no map gets more than 50% of the total vote.
Auto Map Change On Empty Server.
Nominate Map List Menu.
Allow last round finish when the map the time runs out.
To ask the players before the voting begins, if they want to participate the map
voting to decide which next map will be played. See the cvar 'gal_endofmapvote_ask'.
After the user voted, transform the '0 - None' option to an 'one time cancel' vote
opportunity, configured by cvar (See the cvar 'gal_vote_show_none_type').
If you are using only 'mp_timelimit' the map extension will be in minutes.
If you are using 'mp_maxrounds/mp_winlimit' the map extension will be in rounds.
If you are using 'mp_fraglimit' the map extension will be by frags count (See the cvar 'gal_mp_fraglimit_support').
If you are using both 'mp_timelimit/mp_maxrounds/mp_winlimit/mp_fraglimit', it gives you the
first to get close to finish the map. For example, suppose that there are 3 minutes left
and 10 rounds remaining. It will give you by minutes, and not by rounds. And to avoid
re-voting when those 10 rounds end up, it will temporarily disables the rounds voting
when the remaining rounds end up.
Command 'gal_startvote -nochange or -restart or other args', to forces a map vote
to begin and the map will be changed immediately or at the end of the current round.
You can see the cvar `gal_general_options` to set the default behavior to change the
map immediately or the end of the current round.
If the "-nochange" argument is supplied, the map will not be changed by
Galileo, which is useful when you have a different plugin handling the actual
changing of the map.
If the "-restart" argument is supplied and the voting option "Stay Here" wins,
the current map is restarted. This command is for the "Multi-Mod Manager"
If the "-now" argument is supplied, the map will be changed immediately by Galileo,
after the voting to finish. This is the same as the cvar `gal_general_options` set to 0.
If the "-roundend" argument is supplied, the map will only be changed by
Galileo, after the round where the voting is going on finish. This is the same as
the cvar `gal_general_options` set to 2, but here it is for the current round where
the voting finished.
Command 'gal_votemap', to receive a list of maps and will to perform a map voting
as if it was an automatic end of map voting. It has the following optional arguments:
If the "-nointro" argument is supplied, the countdown "7", "6", "5", "4", "3", "2", "1"
will be skipped and the voting will start immediately as you send the command.
If the "-norunoff" argument is supplied, the runoff vote will be disabled
for this voting, if it is not already disabled by the cvar `gal_runoff_enabled`.
If the "-noextension" argument is supplied, the map extension will be disabled
for this voting, if it is not already disabled by the cvar `amx_extendmap_step`.
If the "-loadnominations" argument is supplied, the map nominations will be loaded
for this voting, if they are enabled by the cvar `gal_nom_playerallowance`.
Command 'gal_createmapfile filename', creates a file that contains a list of every
valid map in your maps folder. The filename argument indicates specifies the name
to be used for the new file. It will be created in the ./configs/galileo/ folder.
Command 'quit2' to be used instead of `quit`, when you want to the server
to restart on the same map it was before. It requires the cvar `gal_srv_start` to be set to 1.
Command 'gal_changelevel', to immediately change level to the current map at
the cvar nextmap. If the next map is set to `[not yet voted on]` the map will
be changed the next map on the map cycle. If the argument `now` is provided as in `gal_changelevel now`, the
5 seconds countdown just before change level will not be presented.
Command 'gal_look_for_crashes', to search crashing maps through all your server maps. This command will:
Set the mp_chattime to 3,
Change the map to the next map every 7 seconds,
Currently I did not implement to Galileo stop automatically when it look through all you server
maps. If you want to stop it, run the same command `gal_look_for_crashes` on your server
console. After stop, it will output the contents of the crashing maps at:
Command 'say galmenu [page_number]', (admin MAP level required) to choose from the loaded server
maps, the maps to create a map voting by a menu, as the one with the `gal_votemap` command. Consider here the
nomination file list as maps source to build up the menu. If specified the `page_number` argument, the menu
will be opened a the specified page. Example: `say galmenu 50` will open the menu right on the page 50.
If the argument `page_number` is omitted, the menu will open at the first page, or the last page
you opened it. It requires the cvar `gal_nom_playerallowance` to be set to a value higher than 0.
The Maintenance Mode:
If the owner of the server is fixing something or updating the server and doesn't wanna the map
to be changed, he will enable the maintenance command 'gal_maintenance_mode', so the map
can't be changed by any method like gal_startvote/rtv/timeleft or maxrounds ended... and will displayed
a print chat with something like that: You cannot change the map when the server is in mode maintenance.
New Recent Maps List:
Maps are commonly repeated on the vote and there is no chance for all of them. Hence on server
to get to play on, you need the use the 'gal_banrecent' to ban these 1000+ maps. Because of this,
players can't nominate maps for few days. The proposition is adding a file to the plugin, in which
will save map history and a bunch of recent maps won't be able to get automatically displayed on
the voting menu, but still be able to get nominated.
This is automatically done, it will not allow to repeat maps on the voting list until all them to be
showed at least once. The cvar 'gal_recent_nom_maps' control whether this feature is activated
or not. See it on the 'galileo.cfg' file.
When the banned maps list is bigger than all maps on the server, what happens?
It stops counting/using the recent banned list maps and randonly to start adding banned maps.
The Half-File cvar 'mp_fraglimit' Support:
Enable virtual support for the Half-File cvar 'mp_fraglimit' on game modes as 'Counter-Strike' which
do not support the cvar 'mp_fraglimit'. You need to configure the 'mp_fraglimit' as you configure the
'mp_timelimit' cvar on you 'server.cfg' file. See the cvar 'gal_mp_fraglimit_support' on the
'galileo.cfg' configuration file.
The Map Groups Feature:
It uses whatever file you have set in the cvar 'gal_vote_mapfile'. Normally, in that
file you would just have a listing of maps, one per line. But to use the groups feature,
your 'gal_vote_mapfile' cvar would point to a '.txt' file looking something like this
The text "[groups]" has to be the very first line in the file, on a line by itself. The
numbers, on separate lines, specifies how many maps from each file to add to the
If you had a file within what was posted above, then you would have to create the
files: '1.ini', '2.ini', '3.ini', and '4.ini' in the './configs/galileo/' folder. Each of
those INI files would contain a list of maps, one per line.
Galileo will first load any nominated maps into the vote. Then Galileo would pick 2
maps from '1.ini', 1 from '2.ini', 1 from '3.ini', and 3 from '4.ini' 'til the maximum
value of 8 to be reached.
If you want to always show the map 'de_dust2' on the map voting, just use:
This maps groups configuration means to load up to 1 map from the file '1.ini'
(1st line after [groups]) and up to 7 maps from '2.ini' (2nd line after [groups]).
Then you only need to create the files '1.ini' and '2.ini' in the './configs/galileo/'
folder. And in the file '1.ini' you put only the 'de_dust2' map, and in the file '2.ini'
you put your mapcycle or voting filler maps file list.
Hence the map 'de_dust2' will always be available on any voting. It only will not be
displayed, if and only if, the nominations are enabled and there are 1 + 7 map
nominations and none of them is 'de_dust2'. The map 'de_dust2' will not be loaded
on this case because the maximum maps available on any voting is 1 + 7 = 8.
And as the map nominations are loaded before filling the map voting list using the
map fillers from your map groups files '1.ini' (1st line after [groups]) and '2.ini'
(2nd line after [groups]), the map 'de_dust2' will not be added because there is not
The Whitelist Feature:
If uses whatever file you set on the cvar 'gal_vote_whitelist_mapfile' as the
Whitelist. It specifies the time where its listed maps are allowed to be added to
the voting list as fillers after the nominations being loaded.
The maps following '[10-22]' will be only allowed to be vote map fillers between
10:00:00 and 22:59:59 o'clock. This feature should be helpful because some servers have
about only 10 players between 05:00 and 10:00 o'clock, so they will be needing small
maps for playing. Basically, the Whitelist is a filter to your mapcycle/filler list.
It is a list to specifies the time where the maps are allowed.
It is not a list to specifies the time where the maps are blocked (directly).
So, instead of to think on which time you want to block them.
To think on which time you want to allow them.
Using [10-22], means:
1) You want to allow them between 10:00:00 hours (morning) until 22:59:59 (night).
2) Doing it, will cause to block them between 22:00:00 (today night), until 09:59:59 (tomorrow morning).
3) If the cvar 'gal_whitelist_block_out' = 1, it will always block all maps not following any rules as [10-21], [3-11], etc.
4) If the cvar 'gal_whitelist_block_out' = 0, it will always allow all maps not following any rules as [10-21], [3-11], etc.
If you try to play 'de_dust' / 'de_inferno' when it is 09 hours, you will be blocked.
If you try to play 'de_dust' / 'de_inferno' when it is 10 hours, you will be allowed.
If you try to play 'de_dust' / 'de_inferno' when it is 21 hours, you will be allowed.
If you try to play 'de_dust' / 'de_inferno' when it is 22 hours, you will be allowed.
If you try to play 'de_dust' / 'de_inferno' when it is 23 hours, you will be blocked.
and so on...
To block them between 10-22, change your config file to:
Now [10-10] stands for from 10:00:00 until 10:59:59.
Now [10-11] stands for from 10:00:00 until 11:59:59.
Now [5-3] stands for from 5:00:00 (yesterday/today) until 3:59:59 (today/tomorrow).
Now [1-23] stands for from 1:00:00 until 23:59:59.
Now [1-22] stands for from 1:00:00 until 22:59:59.
Now [0-23] stands for from 0:00:00 until 23:59:59.
And so on...

If someones do not want to ask the players whether to vote for the next map, just needs to disable this cvar on the 'galileo.cfg' config file:
// Indicates whether there should be asked to the players if they want to// participate the map vote to decide what the next map will be.// 0 - disabled this feature// 1 - enable this feature// When using that feature, the players will be asked if they want to vote.// They need to press 6 for yes and 0 for no. So they cannot press the wrong key.
If someones do not want to allow the players to undo their last vote, just needs to disable this cvar on the 'galileo.cfg' config file:
// How the 'None' option should behavior when it is active.// 0 - Hide after the user voted on some option.// 1 - Always keep showing// 2 - Convert it to 'Cancel Last Vote' option, to allow only// 'one time cancel' vote opportunity. Then, when you vote on the// wrong option, because you pressed the wrong key, you just need// to press 0 and your vote will be undone, hence you can vote again.
If someones do not want to see the 'Stay Here' vote option, just needs to disable this cvar on the 'galileo.cfg' config file:
// Control the 'Stay Here' vote option when performing early votes// or by the 'gal_startvote' server command.// 0 - do not show the vote option "Stay Here".// 1 - show the vote option "Stay Here".

Thank you! It means a lot to me.
******************************** SupportGo to top *******************************
You can receive support for this plugin within this thread. Non-Steam servers are not supported.
When submitting a feature or enhancement request:
1. Explain briefly what the enhancement is and why you think it would be useful.
2. Provide any other necessary or useful information regarding your issue, such as (code) examples or related links.
If you are posting because the plugin or a feature of the plugin isn't working for you, please do
all of the following, so we can more efficiently figure out what's going on::
Steps to reproduce
1. First step
2. Second step
3. Third step
If you have access to your game server's console, type the following commands in the server console:
If you don't have access the your game server's console, join your server and type the following
commands in your game's console:
rcon meta list
rcon amxx list
rcon amxx cvars
Paste here everything from the status command *except* the player list.
Paste here the entire result from the version, meta list and amxx list commands.
Paste here *only* the CVARs that contain "galileo.amxx" in the last column
from the amxx cvars command. They will be grouped together.
To enable the Galileo logging, editing the `galileo.sma` changing the `DEBUG_LEVEL` variable.
You need to set the DEBUG_LEVEL to 16, instead of the level 0 as default. See here where to do it.
After that, to compile, install the plugin, restart your server and let your server run until the problem
you are experiencing happens and after that send me by PM or post on the forum the log file '_galileo_log.txt'.
The log file '_galileo_log.txt' will be at the folder 'addons/amxmodx/logs'.
The file '_galileo_log.txt' will be very helpful to find out why it is not working.
You current plugin is not creating the file log file '_galileo_log.txt', only the one with the debugging
log enabled, as I explained above with the DEBUG_LEVEL 16 constant inside the plugin.
If you are having problems with the server cvars changing when they should not, you can also enable
the server cvars logging. To do that, enter on your server console and run the commands:
You should see something like this output bellow, on your server console after entering these commands just above:
Server logging data to file logs\L0618002.log
L 06/18/2017 - 12:00:30: Log file started (file "logs\L0618002.log") (game "czero") (version "48/188.8.131.52/6153")
Later let you server run, and when the bug happens, send me by PM or post on the forum the log file `qconsole.log`,
which will be on the `Half-File` folder or on your Game Mod's folder as `cstrike` or `czero`.
If your server is crashing on the start, you can look if there are any logs on the folders
`./addons/amxmodx/logs` and `./logs`. And also enable the `-condebug` option on server start.
When enabled the `-condebug`, the `qconsole.log` file will be created on the `Half-File or your Game Mod's folder.
If the file `qconsole.log` currently does not exist, you need to enable the condebug adding `-condebug` option
to the server command line options.

Reason: Released version v5.8.1-918
I'm not sure to like you stole an existing plugin, modifying to your own taste, adding minor features, removing others things because you don't have the knowledge to understand and edit code without even caring about people using original Galileo, and that you probably did not contact original author about this as well.
I think there are three possibilities:
- If Brad is no more active, it's possible to take over the plugin, then you should first try to contact the original author, and then you could post a new version, and asking an Approver to unapprove the original one. Doing that implies you know what you're doing, you keep the original title and that you need to keep in mind backward compatibility, so renaming things, breaking original behaviors or removing feature arbitrarily are obviously not something you should do.
- If you want just to make a totally new mapchooser, based on Galileo, to no reinvent the wheel, that it, it's okay as long you name it differently and that there are enough major changes to be considerate different of the original. Then you could do what you want with it
- If you just want to provide minor changes like you did here, but you don't want to take responsibility to take over the plugin, then you should post in the original thread.
I understand what you're trying to do, but considering you don't have much knowledge in pawn, and the way you're doing things, this is not helpful. Choose what you want to do, and do it properly please.
Working on : CS Weapon Mod (72%) , MonsterAI (PAUSED),
No offense, I've no idea what you're saying. I don't have time to argue for the sake of arguing really.
If you choose #2, then I will ask you to make major changes. When I said basing off the original, this means you appropriate Brad's code to make something new. I don't want to see plugin where 90% of the code is still the same as original. It's either you take over the original one and deal it with responsibility, or you create something _different_ based off the original one, in the meaning you got a base and you wrap around that your own ideas/features/way of doing things/etc. This should not be a pseudo-clone with minor changes (at least not in the released section it's fine in the original plugin thread though).
Working on : CS Weapon Mod (72%) , MonsterAI (PAUSED),
Sorry, looking more precisely and taking in account important lines, it's about 88.16% the same code! (used Beyond Compare).
Anyway that's not the point. It's still almost the same, and it doesn't sense having a pseudo-clone, at least, again, not in the release section. Please understand I want to avoid redundant plugin in Approved section.
So I will say it again: either you take over, or you do something different, or you share your work in original plugin thread.
Either way you will choose, you share your work and support it, at the end it's up to how you want to deal things.
If you want to release officially a plugin in this section and be reviewed, it's either you take over or you do something new. If you want just to share your work, then posting in original plugin thread is fine.
IMO, if you can, you should take over. Galileo is a good start as AIO map management plugin. Keeping current behaviors/features/etc is not hard and improving things are welcomed. If we could avoid having again another map chooser, that would be nice. Just my personal opinion.
