Yes, a completely 3D Free Flight Spectator Mode with an option to activate Tags for all Players. Give it to us! ;-)

Would be excellent for video making for sure! Is it possible to fly fast like Superman and then walk and of course always be invisible as well as invincible so as not to affect battle outcomes. Great for server administrating and video promos!

Solution of my dreams for Admins/Referees is a full freeflight spectator-mode that allows high movemant speeds being able to see both teams player tags in the according team-colors of course (red/blue).

Technically this should be made available via the already existing AAS-Internal Admin-Console no matter on which slot you´re on in order to avoid the need to edit 168 missions.sqms for adding additional Admin/Civilian-Slots.

As soon as the admin enters his top-secret encrypted password and the according "spectator" command he gets invisible for other players as well as invulnerable and is able to fly around while the collision-system is deactivated as well.

Isn´t is possible - just as a simple example - to execute the already known "camera.sqs" for such a system? "Just" needs to be associated with the already existing invulnerabiliy features for admins and the new command, console and encryptet passwords are already there as well. Faster moving speed and the ability to see all players tags should be added as well. No collision, extra speed and differend Tag-Colors are already "extra benefits".

The following python scripts:


were designed to automatically add additional players to each team on each map. I used them when I upgraded from 25v25 to 50v50. It may be possible for someone with scripting language skills (not suggesting you learn yet another language, toaster!) to modify the script to automatically add a couple of civilians.

Not been doing any gaming the last 3 months but starting to get a little itchy trigger finger... :)

Cool Box.
