VIP Access

Description:
Ever wanted to make money off your server, but couldnt find a decent way to advertise that you were willing admin slots?
This plugin allows you to advertise VIP extras on your server!


Cvars:
vip_adminfriendsname - Sets who the players should contact if they want to buy VIP (Default - "FriendsName")
vip_adminemailaddress - Sets the email address players should contact if they want to buy VIP (Default - "AdminEmailAddress")
vip_cost - Sets the cost of VIP (Default - "$10 (U.S. dollars)")
vip_tag - Sets the VIP tag (Default - "[VIP]")
vip_advertise - Turns the advertising on player spawn <on|off> (Default - "1")
vip_website_on - Turns the website advert <on|off> (Default - "0")
vip_website - Sets the website people should go to for more info (Default - "http://www.example.com/go_here")
vip_irc_on - Turns the IRC advert <on|off> (Default - "0")
vip_irc - Sets the irc channel people should go to for more info (Default - "#vip @ gamesurge")


Client commands:
/vip - Shows if you are a VIP or not
/vips - Shows a list of VIPs currently on the server
/viphelp - Opens an MOTD showing information about VIP
/vipinfo - Advertises information about VIP to the player in chat


Coming Up:

vip_advertise cvar
Advertise your website
Allow people to contact you on AIM, IRC etc (Cvars will be added for these)
vips.ini file (To keep vips separate from users.ini)
vip flags (Define what accesses each VIP has separately)
Add "amx_addvip" and "amx_removevip" admin console commands
Add more accesses
A php script for your website so VIPs can sign up without being in game!


Adding a VIP:
Open the file "VIP.ini" (Located in cstrike/addons/amxmodx/configs/VIP.ini)
Find the users steamID and decide what flags to give them
Each line must be layed out like this:
Quote:
"STEAM_ID" "flags" ;Name that this record holds
Remember to use quotes
The vip.ini file has a list of what each flag gives the user
It might be a good idea to put a comment at the end of the line stating what date they bought VIP


The MOTD:
The MOTD (downloadable below) is VERY basic
If players type "/viphelp" this will open in game
The default MOTD will simply say "Buy VIP!"
Please note that a small amount of knowledge of HTML is helpful when editing the MOTD


Notes:
You need to use a STEAM server for this plugin to work
You need to download the cstrike.zip with all the other plugins, otherwise your accesses wont work at all
If you want to include the bhop abilities, you need to download from connorr's thread, located below
Put VIP.amxx at the top of your plugins.ini
See servers using this plugin here.

Hmm ... you should make the flag unique instead of "b" , somthing like "n" thats ADMIN_LEVEL_B . And what can a vip do?

As default, VIPs get VIP on the scoreboard and reserved slots
If admins want to give more access, they have to give more flags in users.ini
E.g. if admin wants to give the VIP access to build with blockmaker, edit the users.ini and give them "bm"
Obviously VIP access will change with different plugins
