We needed moderators and we’ve got moderators!
We’ve grown enough in size now that we have removal request’s due to the restricted RemoverTool on a daily basis. As we did have Maláketh and zajdong as moderators on discord already, it was time to provide them with some tools in-game. Just before developing the plugin however we found two very nice players (TardisChef and EpicChaos) who agreed to join us on this endevaour as moderators.
With 4 moderators on board we’ve created and tested the ModeratorHelp plugin. The plugin enables players to create so-called ModeratorRequest’s instead of the usuall AdminRequests. By using /moderatorhelp, a request get’s created and moderators get notified on Discord. They can then issue commands to initiate contact and/or teleport to the player. This action backups their inventory and backpack, gives them the green scientist suit, a toolgun and permissions to use the RemoverTool in admin mode. The moderator is invincible and not targetable by any turret, trap or NPC during this time and will therefore not drain any turrets in the vicinity. After removing the requested objects for the caller, the moderator closes the request and will be teleported back to his starting location. This strips him from any items he might have picked up, removes the given items and permissions while restoring their inventory and backpack. Should the caller feel unconfortable at any point, he may cancel his request using ‘/moderatorhelp cancel’ and initate the above procedure from his side.
Moderators cannot create ModeratorRequest’s themselves.
Welcome to the team TardisChef and EpicChaos and thank you for your support! Happy moderating!
