    DESCRIPTION :

    While you play in VS you can't take a break aka "go_away_from_keyboard", so this plugin enable you to do so.

    COMMANDS :

    Basic Commands (chat) :
    • !away: You go away and bot take your place(if you are survivor)
    Cvars :
    The following cvars are stored in:
    /left4dead/cfg/sourcemod/sm_away.cfg
    • sm_away_announce (0|1, def 1) - announce !away command to clients
    p.s. bad english and bad code style ;D

    Really cool idea, I hope this works well. I will try it out tonight.

    This plugin sets `director_no_human_zombies` which controls whether players can be special infected. What happens if no human zombies happens to be enabled when it's time for an infected to spawn? Could a survivor grief the infected team by spamming this? You may want to have some sort of per map limit on this.

    Also you may want to change this message to be more meaningful, I don't know if players will understand what being 'away' means and they probably won't want to go there.
    Code:
     
    PrintToChat(client, "\x04[SM]\x03 Type !away to go away");

    when director_no_human_zombies is set to 1, human zombies can't swap, but my plugin set this cvar to 1 for only 0.05 sec so yes, this can be a problem, but only for 0.05 sec
    btw my english is bad, so if you give me more meaningful message i will change it

    What's the feature called in campaign? Isn't it something like "Take a break"? I'd base it on whatever the option is in campaign.

    Quote:
    Say !away to take a break.
    or

    Quote:
    Say !away if you need to go AFK.
    And then maybe change the player's name to IDLE <player name> just like in campaign.

    You also may want to call TimerAnnounce more often, maybe after every map load. Players tend to have short memories... probably due to zombies eating their brains.

    I think you could improve your plugin , by moving an afk player automatically into inactive mode , like coop

    Good idea! But can do better than editing a timer as you wish? If for example I would like if the player does not touch the keyboard for 10 seconds, then it comes to bot ... A time should be regulated in .cfg

    It'd be really easy to add the "go_away_from_keyboard" command to an AFK plugin with a check to see if the mod is L4D and the team is survivor. Probably a lot easier than adding all the AFK logic to this script.
