Gimmick names

Postby InsaneHyena » Sat Jun 11, 2016 12:32 pm #185855



Spessmen - at least ''''RP'''' '''heavy'''' ones, like cluwne, mime or chaplain, need to be able to change their names at roundstart. Thus, if you spawn as a chaplain and decide that you want to do islam gimmick this round, you will be able to change your name to Muhammed ibn Saddam.

They need to pick their names before the round starts, not during it, though.

Yeah the any special names, like Silicon, Clown, Mime and Chaplain religon and stuff can be pre named in the Setup Character menu. So its all automatically filled in before the round even starts.

Special names like clown or chaplain need to be changed in the Setup Character menu before the roundstart. Otherwise changing your name after the round has started causes issues, because a traitor that has you as their target will see your old name in their objective instead of the new name.

If you want to do a certain gimmick, you have to decide it before the round starts.
