During clan training our leader always tried to get some strange tactics into our minds, but while he explained one part, he always flew around trying to show things simultaneously. He ordered a plugin to support him while explaining the routes, so here it is.
You're able to add different named tactics per map, have multiple lines added at your position or where you shot at in different colors or just place colored glows around to mark special points.
Type /tactics in chat to open the menu. After selecting or creating a new tactic switch to the next menu page and select the color you want to edit.
You've got various options to manage the route in that color. Either extend it by shooting at the next position or use the menu, to set the next point at your feet. The last and the new point are connected with a line, so you have one long path following your set points.
If you need to start at a new position, which you don't want to connect with your previous route, just add a new part and start again independently from the other routes in the selected color (or just select a different color).
You're able to hide or show the whole tactic (all colors) at once or disable/enable certain colors.
All tactics are saved per map in sourcemod/configs/tactics/mapname.cfg
Next to the routes, you're able to highlight spots with a temporary glow. Those positions aren't saved and are gone the next mapchange.
It's right in the mainmenu after typing /tactics in chat "Manage positions". Select a color and shoot at the place you want to highlight. To remove a glow, select the correct color in the menu and press "e".
I know, it's a bit messy to combine keys and the menu, but it's fast to use ingame
Even better, you're able to teleport to the selected glow
by holding right-click and pressing "e"
There is only the versions convar sm_tactics_version
, since i can't imagine any convars to add ;)
Other useful plugins for clan trainings:
- sm_tactic - Opens the tactic menu
- sm_tactics - Alias for above
- Bot Mimic - Record your movements and have bots playing it back.
It's starting with 1.2, since we've been using it for a while now and decided to share.
