New ORP System
This is a new system and works very differently to before, please read. This effects ALL maps on MTS.
New ORP System is automatic and currently protects ALL structures, however - tomorrow it will be turned to Range Based just like our previous ORP system, where only certain areas you choose are protected.. The reason it is currently set to protect all is so people can prepare their ORP "zones" for tomorrow to ensure they are ready.
ORP Activation Timer when last tribe member logs offline: 30minutes
Active ORP Structure Resistance: 3x Resistance
Active ORP Turret Damage: 4x Turret Damage
ORP Placements allowed: 3
This new system does not display increased health when spyglassing a structure, so it is now difficult to metagame and determine if someone is offline. Even though Metal Wall will still display 15,000 HP. It still requires 9+ C4 to destroy. So the offline increase is working.
What you must do next, use the chat commands below to create your ORP zones, these will only "pre-place" your ORP zones however, ORP will not turn to Range Based until tomorrow! So, currently until that change, your ORP will protect all structures. But you must do the above to be ready for tomorrow!
New chat commands:
/setorp <name> - sets orp to current player location /setorp <id> <name> - replaces ORP <id> with current location
/listorp - Gives list of current ORPs
/orp - will give message saying if you are inside your own ORP or not. And it will tell you if your target has active ORP or not.
ORP Range should be around the same as before, needs confirming! Please report any bugs.
Please use #questions in discord if you are unsure over anything!
