BNWCS Combat Zone Owner's Kit
The "BNWCS Combat Zone Owner's Kit" is for people who want to set up a combat zone that is enhanced for use with the Brave New World Combat System.
If you are not one of those people, the contents of the kit will not be very useful to you.If you are, however, please also consider joining the "Brave New World Combat" SL group - it is through this group that I will send out notices about CRITICAL updates to combat zone components, and you as a combat zone owner can send out group notices to potential combatants.
The Brave New World Combat System can work anywhere in SL, though certain features require setup on the combat zone owner's part, and won't be available in just any sim. The kit contains the objects needed to make those extra features available. The following section will tell you which of the objects in this box do what.
- BNWCS Combat Zone Custom Settings Server
Combat zone owners can tweak many of the settings of the BNWCS, to customize the combat experience in their area. A detailed owner's manual for this object is included.
For a list of all the settings that can currently be adjusted, see the "notes" page.
- BNWCS Combat Zone Landmarker
In order for your combat zone to show up on http://BNWCS.org/?zones , all you have to do is rez the "BNWCS Combat Zone Landmarker" object. Further instructions are included in its Owner's Manual.
- BNWCS Damage Tester
The "BNWCS Damage Tester" object will display data about BNWCS damage, including splash and melee. Rez it and let other people attack it to get an idea of how much damage their weapons will do.
- BNWCS Gametype Box (Box)
The BNWCS comes with built-in support for several "capture-the-flag" gametypes, with the ability for more to be added down the road. This box contains everything you will need to set up "capture the flag" games - flags, homepoints, flag rezzers, and a switch to change between types and/or turn the flags off. Instructions for setup, use, and playing BNWCS "capture the flag" are included inside the box.
- BNWCS Group Joiner
The BNWCS Group Joiner is a poster that you can rez and place near your combat zone. Clicking it will direct an avatar to the "Brave New World Combat" SL group.
- BNWCS Health Pack
BNWCS Vehicle Health Pack
The BNWCS Health Packs will allow avatars or vehicles to recover lost health in the BNWCS by running into it. A simple, no-frills, 1-prim health pack is provided, though you can place the script into any other object to make any kind of health pickup you desire. To prevent abuse, these will not heal their owner, nor will they function unless they belong to the land's owner - this may be a single avatar, or they may need to be deeded to a group. More information on setup, use, and configuration is provided in their Owner's Manual, included in the kit.
- BNWCS Leaderboard
The BNWCS Leaderboard will show the top 5 players in your sim. By default, it uses whichever ranking statistic the main BNWCS site uses for grid-wide rankings. You may, however, change it to display the top 5 of any of the statistics that the BNWCS tracks. Instructions for setup and use are included in its Owner's Manual notecard.
- BNWCS Respawn Point
When an avatar dies while wearing the BNWCS, they will remain dead for a while, then come back to life where they stand unless you set up "respawn points." Teams can have their own respawn points, that only team members will return to. Instructions for setup and use are included in its Owner's Manual.
- BNWCS Sim Stats Reset
This object will allow you to delete ranking and statistic information from your sim - you may choose to delete everything, or to only delete information from avatars who have not been active recently. Instructions for setup and use are included in its Owner's Manual.
- BNWCS Team Leaderboard
The BNWCS Team Leaderboard will keep track of team scores. You may set it on a timer, or have it keep track indefinitely. If BNWCS flags are active, it will keep track of flag round victories. If not, it will keep track of kills. It will announce the beginning and end of games to active combatants, and has an optional access list to allow multiple avatars to control it. Instructions for setup and use are included in its Owner's Manual.
- BNWCS Vendistributor
The BNWCS Vendistributor is an affiliate vendor. It will allow avatars to purchase a BNWCS health meter, and split the proceeds between the creator and yourself. If you wish, you may offer discounted health meters. Instructions for setup and use are included in its Owner's Manual.
