    L4D2 - Psychotic Witch

    General

    This plugin requires Sourcemod 1.7 or higher
    This plugin requires the attached Gamedata file


    Description

    I'm working on new ideas for my Vicious Infected plugin. Rather than edit the entire plugin I've started to make smaller projects to assess just that particular set of abilities. I figured I'd release the small portions as I come up with them. Maybe even incorporate just the abilities for that particular class to ease the overall plugin.

    Psychotic Witch is a plugin designed to reintroduce the most fearsome of the infected as a being of pure malevolence. It was important to crown or avoid the Witch at all costs, now that has become even more important. With nine special abilities, the Witch can take reduced damage to the head or body, become invisible, send Survivors in the path to her target flying, send survivors stumbling when she incaps her prey, insta-kill or B&W her incapped target, heal herself by feeding off a Survivor's life, drop a defib and medkit on death, and randomly changer her HP and Speed. Be ready to take fear to a new level...

    • Assimilation: When a Survivor is killed by the Witch, she raises them in her image, creating another Witch.
    • Death Helmet: The Witch places a hollowed out propane tank on her head to reduce damage to her brain.
    • Leeching Claw: When the Witch incaps a Survivor, she heals herself with some of their stolen life force.
    • Mood Swing: With her mood changes, the Witch also has a varied health and speed factor.
    • Nightmare Claw: When incapped by an enraged Witch the Survivor is either set to B&W or killed.
    • Psychotic Charge: The Witch will knock back any Survivors in her path while pursuing her victim.
    • Shameful Cloak: Distraught by what she has become, the Witch will try to hide her form from the world.
    • Sorrowful Remorse: When a Witch is killed, she leaves behind a Medkit and Defib as repetance for her actions.
    • Support Group: When the Witch is angered, her hateful shriek calls down a panic event.
    • Unrelenting Spirit: The Witch's spirit allows her to keep attacking despite damage.


    Cvars

    <*>To change these values edit the plugin.L4D2.PsychoticWitch.cfg in the CFG/Sourcemod folder.

    Nice.

    I've been waiting for someone to take control of another witch plugin.

    Hopefully there are no conflicts with the witch control plugin, although it would be nice if you incorporated that functionality in this plugin. Although I would understand if this is intended for the AI witch only.

    The only suggestion I'd make is possibly finding another way to make her randomly attack and down all survivors without using the gimmick used by other such plugins, such as replacing the witch with a new witch or biling the witch causing the witch to have a horde with her while re targeting.

    The Witch Control plugin works with this one, that's actually how I was able to verify this plugin worked. Adapting it however I wouldn't likely seek to do, that plugin is VERY buggy.

    I'm not sure there's a better way to get the Witch to attack another target, but I'll search around for a few things and see what I can find.

    Mortiegama,

    Glad to see you have released a witch plugin! Will be testing it today.

    Is there any way you can add the "Witch's support group" functionality found in your Vicious Infected plugin? Having the option to summon a hoard when this psychotic witch is angered would be icing on the cake.

    Regards,

    PG

    I wasn't checking if the harasser was a valid client. Added in an extra check and should be working.

    Thank you for adding the Witch's support group functionality! Really appreciate it.

    While running Psychotic Witch on my 8-player coop server I found it conflicts with the Boomer B**** Slap plugin due to both plugins using "l4d2addresses.txt" for their respective gamedata files. Players would suddenly get knocked down repeatedly for no apparent reason, which seems like the Boomer slap was firing erroneously.

    For a workaround, I will edit the Boomer Slap source and change its gamedata file name, then test again.

    Thanks again for all of you work on these great plugins.

    You can use my game data file for both. I used Atomics and updated a few signatures.
