Post by: Jonne on May 16, 2020, 02:09:12 am
Hi guys,

Tonight (Saturday 16 May), we will be launching a new map on Plan B: Turquoise Islands. First of all, I'd like to thank Cobra, for being the driving force behind this and creating the map, and Carg, for setting up the vehicles, spawns and making sure it's ready for PTP. More information about the map is available
here (https://planbserver.com/forum/index.php?topic=6123.0). So, make sure you don't miss the launch tonight: Saturday 16 May at 20:00 CEST (UTC +2): https://www.timeanddate.com/worldclock/fixedtime.html?msg=Turquoise+Islands+Launch&iso=20200516T20&p1=48 (https://www.timeanddate.com/worldclock/fixedtime.html?msg=Turquoise+Islands+Launch&iso=20200516T20&p1=48)

  • Anti team surfing
    • This is an issue that came up with some recent reports. Initially, we just wanted to clear the rule up, but that seemed to bring a lot more questions than it solved. For some perspective, this was our initial thought on clearing the rule up: team members wouldn't be allowed to surf on enemies vehicles (so terros with cops or vice versa). For civilians, it would depend. Were they not engaged in any fights with the team, it would be allowed. If you were engaged in a fight (with the same team of the person you're surfing on), it wouldn't be allowed. Now, I think this is already pretty in-depth, but then there would still be "gray zones", such as, when do you consider they're in a fight, should they be shooting back for it to be called a fight, when would you consider it ended, or what if he accidentally damaged someone on the team. And then we didn't even get to the part on how we would punish for it.

      So, instead of making such a rule, we went with a simpler solution, and just making it impossible to surf on a vehicle of the opposing team. Terros can't ride with cops and vice versa, civilians won't be able to ride with terros or cops (it's the same system as with getting in as a passenger). Everyone can still surf if a civilian is the driver. I know that it's not the best solution and will probably cause some frustration, but out of this and making a rule, I think this is the better one. This way, we just make it impossible to do, and admins don't have to interfere. But if you do have a better suggestion on how we can solve this, please let us know!
About this new update today I was playing as terrorist and I jumped over the car of the president to try to kill him but the Anti Surf system moved me down of the car instantly, I don't know If you can test it.

Didnít like the map, Iím not hindering your efforts but itís just too lame to be Plan B worthy. Itís not competitive, it doesnít live up to the hype, itís just not death match material imo

A sincerely appreciate the hard work done to create the map.

However, for me personally, I don't enjoy much as other maps. And more often than not, due to a bug I get stuck somewhere and find it very hard to solve it.

Especially when there are few players, sometimes it isn't even competitive as navigation is difficult at times.

Though I share these views, I have to say this map being so different to others, it sometimes makes it more challenging at times, sometimes a little change is good. It's like a bit more adventurous. When there are too many players, with all the chaos, it becomes really fun at times.

I like the map,it's amusing,we need more.
The only con would be the bugs that occur,but that can be solved.
Good,finally something grand and new.
