Reply With Quote #1

Galileo 1.1.290 released 2009-FEB-26

This is a feature rich map voting plugin. It's intended to be used in place of any other map choosing plugin such as Deagles' Map Manager and AMXX's very own mapchooser.

Here is an incomplete list of optional features this plugin can provide:
  • Ability to "rock the vote".
  • Map nominations to be used in the next map vote.
  • Runoff voting when no map gets more than 50% of the total vote.
  • Weighted map votes for players with customizable admin flags.
  • Unique map cycle when the server is empty.
I highly recommend you review the well-commented galileo.cfg to see all the options you have with this plugin. It's located in the attached ZIP and in the "Options (CVARS)" section of this thread.

You can receive support for this plugin within this thread. Non-Steam servers are not supported.

If you are posting in this thread because the plugin or a feature of the plugin isn't working for you, please do all of the following so that we can more efficiently figure out what's going on:

If you have access to your game server's console, type the following in the server console:
  • status
  • meta list
  • amxx plugins
  • amxx cvars
If you don't have access the your game server's console, join your server and type the following in your game console:
  • status
  • rcon_password your_rcon_password
  • rcon meta list
  • rcon amxx plugins
  • rcon amxx cvars
Paste everything from the status command *except* the player list.
Paste the entire result from the meta list and amxx plugins commands.
Paste *only* the CVARs that contain "galileo.amxx" in the last column from the amxx cvars command. They will be grouped together.

Server Commands:
  • gal_startvote [-nochange] Forces a map vote to begin and the map will be changed once the next map has been determined. 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.
  • 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.

Client Commands:
  • say nextmap Displays, to all players, the next map that will be played. This is a replacement for AMXX's command of the same name. When using end of map voting (CVAR "gal_endofmapvote" set to 1), this command will return "[not yet voted on]" if the map vote hasn't started yet and "[voting in progress]" once the vote has started. When the outcome of the vote is determined, this command will return the map name.
  • say currentmap Displays, to all players, the current map name.

Optional Client Commands (if features are enabled):
  • say recentmaps Displays a listing, to all players, of the most recently played maps. Requires CVAR "gal_banrecent" to be set to a value higher than 0.
  • say rockthevote | say rtv | say rocktheanythingvote Registers the players request for a map vote and change. The player will be informed how many more players need to rock the vote before a map vote will be forced. The anything argument can be any "word" up to 20 characters. Requires CVAR "gal_rtv_commands" to be set to an appropriate value.
  • say nominations | say noms Displays, to all players, a listing of maps that have been nominated. Requires CVAR "gal_nom_playerallowance" to be set to a value higher than 0.
  • say nominate partialMapName | say nom partialMapName Attempts to nominate the map specified by the partialMapName argument. If there are multiple matches for partialMapName, a menu of the matches will be displayed to the player allowing them to select the map they meant. Requires CVAR "gal_nom_playerallowance" to be set to a value higher than 0.
  • say cancel mapname Cancels the nomination of mapname, which would have had to be previously nominated by the player. Requires CVAR "gal_nom_playerallowance" to be set to a value higher than 0.
  • say mapname If mapname has been nominated by the player, will cancel the nomination. If mapname has not been nominated by the player, will attempt to nominate it. Requires CVAR "gal_nom_playerallowance" to be set to a value higher than 0.

// Allowing an extension of the current map's time limit will add an  //
// "extend the map" option to map votes which, if the option wins,    //
// will increase the time limit by a predetermined amount, letting    //
// players stay on the current map longer.                            //

// Specifies the maximum number of minutes a map can be played, if it 
// has been extended. A value less than mp_timelimit will not let the 
// map be extended.
amx_extendmap_max 90

// Specifies the number of minutes a map will be extended each time 
// the "Extend Map" option wins the map vote.
amx_extendmap_step 15

// There are two standard HL1 map related commands that you may not   //
// want to function normally, if at all, when using this plugin, so   //
// as to avoid conflicts of map voting procedures.                    //

// Indicates how the standard HL1 "votemap" command should function.
// 0 - disable
// 1 - behave normally
gal_cmd_votemap 0

// Indicates how the standard HL1 "listmaps" command should function.
// 0 - disable
// 1 - behave normally
// 2 - behave the same as the "gal_listmaps" command (galileo default)
gal_cmd_listmaps 2

// Banning recently played maps means that the last several maps that //
// have been played can not be nominated or otherwise placed in the   //
// map vote. This ensures that a map can not be played over and over  //
// again at the expense of playing a variety of other maps.           //

// Specifies how many of the most recent maps are disallowed from a 
// map vote. A value of 0 will disable this feature.
gal_banrecent 3

// Indicates the style in which the recent maps are displayed when a 
// player uses the "recentmaps" say command.
// 1 - all maps on one line
// 2 - each map on a separate line
gal_banrecentstyle 1

// Rocking the vote is a way players can indicate their desire to     //
// start an early map vote to change maps. Once enough players have   //
// rocked it, a vote will begin.                                      //

//     any one word (i.e. no spaces) that starts with "rockthe" and ends 
//     with "vote". Some examples might be: "rockthedamnvote", 
//     "rockthesillylittlevote", or "rockthefreakingvote". The total 
//     length of the word can not be longer than 31 characters. That 
//     leaves 20 characters for creativeness once you factor in the 
//     lengths of "rockthe" and "vote")
gal_rtv_commands 3

// Specifies the number of minutes after a map starts that players 
// have to wait before they can rock the vote. When a single player
// is on the server, that player can rock the vote at any time, 
// regardless of this setting.
gal_rtv_wait 10

// Specifies the ratio of players that need to rock the vote before a
// vote will be forced to occur. When a single player is on the server,

// A value of 0 will disable this feature.

// like included in the next map vote. Depending on how many maps     //
// have been nominated, it is possible that not all nominations will  //

// Specifies how many nominations each player can make.
// There is a hard cap defined, MAX_NOMINATION_CNT, that is set to 5

// A value of 0 will disable this feature.

// one per line, that players can nominate. Use * for all maps in the

// than a regular player's vote.                                      //

// Specifies how many votes a single admin vote should count as. 
// A value of 0 or 1 will disable this feature.

gal_vote_weightflags y

// Ending a map on a new round after time has expired, for round-     //

// standard HL1 way, which is to suddenly end the map the second time //

// Indicates which action to take when it is detected

// 4 - change to a randomly selected map from your nominatable map list

// of the map to decide what the next map will be.
gal_endofmapvote 1

// Paginating the map listings displayed from the gal_listmaps        //

// Primary voting is what most people generally think of when they    //

// 0 - keep the player's choice private
// 1 - announce the player's choice

// lot of players. When the server is empty, you may want the server  //

A lot of time and effort went into making this plugin, making features just right, making sure there were no bugs, making sure it was easy to use. If you are glad I made this plugin, and are able, I'd appreciate a token donation. $5, $10, or whatever works for you.

Thank you! It means a lot to me.
