A step in the right direction
Hey All...
Just installed Silent 6.0...
What is the cvar to set the distance a land mind can be seen..
Maybe I'm just missing it but can't find it on the server cvar information section....With the default setting that is set right now you have to be on top of them to spot them or mark them with your binoculars...about 10 feet need the setting to be 50 to 75 feet...
Thanks...

I assume you are referring to spotting mines as non covert, am I right?
It has been restricted in 0.5.2: http://mygamingtalk....lose-landmines/
It's not possible to change.

The main reason of the change was to promote team play, next time ask for covert ops support instead of getting killed 25 times ;)
Cheers.

Aw, the life of an engineer. :D You could always spawn as covie, spot them then respawn back as engie and do your work.

Well I guess that is one way... Can someone tell me where I can find the script that controls the landmind setting or restriction in the silent 6.0 pk3. or maybe I should say what do I have to do to in the silent 6.0 pk3 to change the distance setting...I have some pre 5.2 pk3's that I can use to see what was changed on the 5.2 to restrict the distance... But if I know what to look for it would save me a bunch of time..Thanks....

You cannot change it, it's hardcoded.

Well I guess I can go pre 5.2 silent for now and maybe on the silent 6.1 will have a cvar that gives the server admin some distance option settings on the land line detection... Thanks for the info Guys...

I'd say a flag to change it to the old behavior would be more appropriate, although I doubt I would ever use it. I love the current behavior!

If we did it, I think admins would use it, therefore nothing would change really and what would be the point of introducing it? We want to delicately force team play in this regard - it stays. But we can talk about it of course :) but only reasonable arguments please.

Helping to force team play makes sense to me! ET is meant to be a team game and I like the direction you guys are going so far.

I'm cool with not having the option to disable the current behavior.
