We are currently at the mercy of VAC to control the hacking problem which does not sit well with most of the community.
We can do our part to support the community in self-governing:
Revamping Rcon commands to show more detail :
a. IE ‘status’ command gives a list of users, their in game id, their steam id, and the current count/max that is implemented. This will allow accurate bans by server administrators without dealing with special characters and “” names.
b. A type of gimp command to activate PvE for a certain character. So an admin can make a certain person harmless in a PvP server.
c. An item locator command to track quantities of items on characters. server.track “Explosive Charge” 10 would show you all characters with over 10 c4s on them.
d. A toggle for looting boxes / Half PVP. (you can only loot characters) This would also disable c4ing and raiding but still allow pvp. This would prevent mass loss of items by hackers.
Someone creating a fan-based site that kept track of verified hacker IDs and updated a ban.cfg file for download for the sever operators. (I would do this but I’m afraid I lack the time.)
These are relatively simple compared to most of the stuff I’ve been reading. I run my own server and am currently powerless to stop the terrorizing. I get VAC will never be perfect but implementing something for my staff and myself to wage our own war would be greatly appreciated.
Thank you for an amazing alpha and am totally looking forward to the future you have in store!
Good luck with uLink!
