The remote plugin is the remote control plugin that allows an engineer's objects to be "remote controlled" and driven arounf the map. It also provides natives to build objects and to place limits on how many can be built (for when more than 1 can be built, either by modifying objects.txt or using the build natives).

The amplifier's can't generate their own metal and neiter can engineers increase their metal because the plugin keeps them disables so they don't heal anyone (which also disables metal generation).

The default can certainly be changed, I only made the default buff instead of crit because of the many comments about how crit is OverPowered.

AmplifierOn for 2048 entities, not players. It tracks amplifier data per amplifier (enitity), not per player since it allows each player to have more than 1 and each amplifier can be different (when you use the native interface to make them).

The Amplifiers wave are varied depending on how much metal the amplifier has, they start out faint and get brighter as the amplifier gains metal.

Actually, all of our servers run linux, so it definitely works on linux servers.

Oh yeah, ztf2grab plugin provides a "gravity gun" that can pick up engineers objects, carry them around and throw them.

The #tryinclude attempts to include the "header" file for that plugin and, if it's there, hooks the OnPickupObject() forward so that Krit, Uber and Buff amplifiers can't be picked up using that plugin.

If the "header" file for ztfgrab.inc isn't found, then it doesn't fail and compiles the code without that functionality, making it optional.

Any think, must I send AMP to contribute and polycount?

I don't really think it fits too much with the TF2 style, it does look good but the textures are kinda meh.

Very cool update, by the way. Seems to be working fine.

Since there seems to be cvars for just about everything else, any chance for one that changes the Amplifier's build time?

Also, any chance for a full list of effects that it can dispenses?

Amplifiers don't actually get built. A dispenser gets built and then, after it has finished building, it gets converted to a dispenser. However, I suppose you could modify the DispCheckStage1() and/or DispCheckStage2() to "change the build time". If you want it to be longer, change the 4.0 second delay where it creates the time for DispCheckStage1. I don't think making the build time shorter than the time to build the underlying dispenser would work very well, but you could try.

Thee are also TF2 convars that can be used to change the build time globally.

Any of the TF2 conditions:
PHP Code:
enum TFCond
{
    
TFCond_Slowed 0,
    
TFCond_Zoomed// 1
    
TFCond_Disguising// 2
    
TFCond_Disguised// 3
    
TFCond_Cloaked// 4
    
TFCond_Ubercharged// 5
    
TFCond_TeleportedGlow// 6
    
TFCond_Taunting// 7
    
TFCond_UberchargeFading// 8
    
TFCond_Unknown1// 9
    
TFCond_Teleporting// 10
    
TFCond_Kritzkrieged// 11
    
TFCond_Unknown2// 12
    
TFCond_DeadRingered// 13
    
TFCond_Bonked// 14
    
TFCond_Dazed// 15
    
TFCond_Buffed// 16
    
TFCond_Charging// 17
    
TFCond_DemoBuff// 18
    
TFCond_Healing// 19
    
TFCond_OnFire//20
    
TFCond_Overhealed// 21
    
TFCond_Jarated // 22
}; 
However, a lot of those are either not very useful or don't really do anything when the condition is added directly to the player.

The most useful ones are:
PHP Code:
enum TFCond
{
    
TFCond_Slowed 0,
    
TFCond_Disguised// 3
    
TFCond_Cloaked// 4
    
TFCond_Ubercharged// 5
    
TFCond_Taunting// 7
    
TFCond_Kritzkrieged// 11
    
TFCond_Bonked// 14
    
TFCond_Buffed// 16
    
TFCond_OnFire//20
    
TFCond_Jarated // 22
}; 
Also, there is additional code so that OnFire uses TF2_IgnitePlayer() and both Disguised and Cloaked turn the condition off, instead of on.

Taunt sends a taunt command to the client (which is actually probably too OP to be useful)

These conditions are sent to enemies instead of allies:
PHP Code:
 TFCond_SlowedTFCond_ZoomedTFCond_TeleportedGlow,
 
TFCond_TauntingTFCond_BonkedTFCond_DazedTFCond_OnFire,
 
TFCond_JaratedTFCond_DisguisedTFCond_Cloaked

I would say yes, definitely submit it to polycount/valve

Valve made some changes to those
jarate is now 23
onfire 21
overheal 22
healing 20
crit-a-cola 19
EDIT: and to those of you who want to 'balance' out the amp, use "amplifier_condition 19"

Making the Amplifier give the crit-a-cola effect would allow players to grief by building it in areas where players are defending, such as right around the intel or battlements, capture points. It's like throwing jarate on your teammates.
