Countdown Mode

Inspired by the Countdown mode made by Mr. Bean 35000VR, this mode has players race against the clock to complete as many laps as possible before time runs out.

Current version: Kart V3.0.1


Commands:
  • CountWelcome - Gives a welcome command.
  • CountHelp - Gives a list of commands and (nearly all) netvars which can be changed.
  • CountSettings - Shows the current settings, and the time bonuses for each enabled setting.

Version Details:
Spoiler:

V3.0.1
  • Added in a way to enable or disable Countdown mode using "cd_enabled"

V3.0
  • After a year of no real updates, Countdown has been updated to be more connectable with other mods, while removing bits for mods which are deprecated
  • The bonuses are moved to their own functions, which could possibly be called by other mods
  • Sinks now deal 3x bonus time, and ignore the cap!
  • Lock-on feature for Acrobatics (cd_trickbonus) prepped ready for integration with it and other trick mods
  • Slight HUD improvement for when the time remaining is less than 10 seconds

Okay, the new 1.0.1-f update now includes Splitscreen compatibility, for 2, 3 or even 4 players!

(Just patched, fixing a mistake in 3 or 4 player Splitscreen games, while also adding in 2-player bonus time notifications)

While it seems there's still work to be done, I think this mod has done enough to justify being put into releases by now. Again, still haven't been able to test full netgames with it, but I think there's enough functionality here to prove it isn't... broken or something, at least. I'll let it into releases for further testing and feedback by the public. Welcome to releases!

I forgot to mention it, but I have made some additions to Countdown Mode, including boostpad bonus time as an option.

Default Time bug

Thank you for this wonderful game mode. My friend and I have been having a lot of fun with it.
Through our fanatical drifting, we discovered a bug. If you have just released a drift boost and you drive off the track, time is added to your remaining time as you die and respawn. The amount of time that is added seems to depend on the colour of the drift boost that was released just before driving off the track.

This happens online as well as offline, and it happens in Kart v1.0.1 as well as v1.0.2
I have attached a gif that demonstrates the bug.

I already know about that bug. But I see that as more of a secret feature - partly as depending on what drift you had, the bonus may just be enough to get you back to where you were before that bonus time had been used. Although I will admit, it might be wise for me to try and edit that bug so that you don't get so much bonus from it.

EDIT: 1.10.0 is out, which patches this glitch and finally moves to PK3

Thanks for the fast action!
I think that a bonus of just a few seconds might be alright, but as it was, you could get over a minute of extra time from driving off with a rainbow drift bonus, which got really excessive and exploitable. (We both ended up finishing all 42 laps op Ghost Valley thanks to it.)

After nearly a year of no updates, V3 is now out. Unlike V2.1, there's only a single version, but this one has the option to integrate with trick mods, thanks to cd_trickbonus()

I also changed the CVars to use the cd_ prefix - so you have cd_time instead of counttime.

Edit: I released a small patch which allows for Countdown to be turned off, mainly for servers with multiple game modes.
