Player Voting system Edit

What it does Edit

The scripts that make up the Player Voting system are mainly intended for use on beta testing servers, though they can be adapted for use as the builder sees fit. What they do is allow the players in a game to vote on an issue (they were built primarily to allow players to vote on whether a module restart was necessary in case something goes wrong in a game and there is no DM online at the time). It is not difficult to expand what they can vote on.

This version allows PC's to vote on a module restart. It requires one placeable object to be built and placed somewhere in the module, preferably somewhere players can reach easily. There are two scripts for the placeable. It also requires one creature to be built, which is spawned during the voting process to collect player votes. There are two scripts for the creature.

Further notes on the creature. It should have its own faction that is neutral to every other faction to prevent problems if a vote is called while a pc is in combat. Good idea there Tethyr

The scripts, Part 1 Edit

Put On The placeable

OnUsed Edit

   scripts).

   called, and spawning the vote gatherer at their location.

The Scripts, Part 2 Edit
