No respawn on 'purple' stuff?

Post by wijszman » 19 Oct 2013, 14:46

I've had my SM server running for a few months now, without problems. However we've noticed a strange thing where certain maps that contain the blue/purple stuff that you cannot touch or else you respawn does not act that way.

i.e. you can just walk over it and not respawn. This is of course not something you want on an obstacle server,

Is this a server setting or something? It does not happen on ALL maps, that's what baffles me most.

which blue/purple stuff do you mean?
usually you only die/respawn in offzone which is kind of flickering silvery imo ^^

    Well the color is probably not important, but obstacle players should know what I'm referring too.

    As steeffeen says, we need to know what kind of block you are talking about. Can you please post a screenshot of one of those blocks?

    Here's a screendump, in this case it's on a bar, but the effect is the same, you cannot touch it, but somehow on my server you are not affected by it at all.

    Yes, this purple thing is called "offzone".
    In this case, the mapper put the offzone on the block so you're unable to touch it.

    It's the mapper choice to add or not offzone at some places. In this case, it seems to be intended by the mapper to add offzone, because without it, the obstacle map would be too easy :P

    in some block+offzone combinations it's possible to walk on them even if the offzone shines through

      guys, maybe I was unclear. The problem is that I've played this map, and others too, where touching the offzone stuff makes you respawn. I've downloaded these maps and on my own server you do NOT respawn when touching it, thus making it too easy ;)

      Is this a setting of some sort?

      No, there's not any setting for this :(
      Btw, that's strange, because on the picture that you showed, you're not supposed to be able to walk on the blocks, but you said that you were able to :?:
