AFK time kick
« on: February 14, 2016, 19:46 »
Now when we have wonderfull 23 people of 100 online mostly, wouldnt it be more handy to change AFK kick time to 10 or 15 mins? I dont understand that when someone is doing like fuel hauling and go toilet, speak phone or eat (which all usually take 5-10 mins), some admins kick them right away, what is the point? I understand if criminal is afk and wasting that slot if others guys want to rob houses, but truckers.. thats silly!

Its not an automatic thing when the server has less than 90ish players online. Admins are using /kickidle

Usually when someone gets reported for being afk in the road for a long while, being afk as thief or afk in a load zone, I'll use /kickidle to avoid spectating someone (with my internet, that's sometimes necessary) and sometimes 2 or 3 other people are kicked before that person. I never do it to get rid of inactive players, I don't think anyone else does either.


It wouldn't be CT if you don't complain about little issue you face with the things you get for free.

It's used when someone is afk blocking a load/unload point, a road, an entrace, using a thief slot or being cop and not doing his duties, and sometimes (if not always), there has to be someone whos afk and has a lower id, so he gets kicked at the same time. He can rejoin the server anyways.

How about if admin kick afk player when he see that truck is perfectly parked somewhere where its not blocking? I know admin can kick after 5 mins but that kind of kick is kind of abuse.
For Emily understandable: If player is perfectly parked so he is not blocking anyone and he is afk 7 mins, my opinion (MY) its command abuse (kind of) becouse kicking is not necessary.

To stay on ontopic and not taking this to offtopic like everything else here: Is it possible to change policy to let truckers afk like 10 mins?

It can't be changed, when the command is used, the server makes a loop through all players and kicks the player with lower id which been AFK for longer than 5 minutes, if that wasn't the player you wanted to kick, you will use the command again and then it will do the same and kick the second, and then do it until no more players are afk. Simply dont go afk or if you really need to go afk, do it in safe zones and you wont get kicked, also advice/promote your friends/other players to dont go afk on the roads, as its against rules and seems like none cares about it.

6) Don't block road. If you need to stop, pull over to the side of the road. Always make sure you are not in anybody's way.

But problem is mods kick everyone, even you are afk in base..

I'll up it to 25 mins for people that are flagged inactive for the actual /kickidle command. But for the auto kick it'll still be 10 mins.

There's nothing wrong with going AFK. I dont know why staff love doing kickidle. Just /kick em for being in the road. Or use /srig to put em at the side of the road more.

If you cared to read, you would see i said a couple of times, innocent players are kicked for having lower ids, its a problem with the loops that needs to be done to detect the afk players.

Thats because it doesn't take no shit basically. Doesnt distinguish

Basically whenever a mod does KickIdle(); it checks if they're inactive. Position is not taken into consideration. Your last activity is.
