    Hey guys, this is the sentry immunity plugin: https://forums.alliedmods.net/showthread.php?p=1422495

    This plugin allows admins to make themselves immune to sentry's automatic targeting systems. This could be useful in trade servers especially because admins are currently constantly being shot at by enemy sentries in spawn. Thought I'd post about this because I know it's a good plugin as I've used it on my server.

    Thanks for reading my suggestion.

    Hey Krazy!

    Personally, I don't quite see how this would be useful. Admins (excluding minis) have acces to god mode, allowing them to be unaffected by sentry bullets and rockets for when they quickly want to take out a spawncamping sentry. However, we can also use the /destroy command which destroys all buildings made by a targeted player. Unless this plugin were to be for mini admins where they can use it to destroy spawncamping sentries, there wouldn't be much use for this.

    If this could be used in a different/better scenario though, I'd be pleased to hear. Only other thing I could think of is engineers who get annoyed when an admin walks by and wastes the sentry's ammunition, but that shouldn't be much of an issue regardless.

    I agree with Pie - admins could also easily go into spectate and use /destroy @aim to destroy the offending sentry; this is just more clutter.

    Hi

    I think another possible scenario might be this one:

    PlayerBlue plays engi, he places a sentry at place xy
    AdminRed plays in godmode and maybe passes by the sentry with or without awareness of sentries placement
    >AdminRed would bait the sentry which would result for the engi to lose kills, ammo etc.

    but then some admins would use the plugin, some wouldn't.


    edit: just saw pie already mentioned that, nvm that, good morning.
