I think it would be really cool if we can place filler "commands" inside of text zones, so that guards can say names of certain players based off of what the mapmaker wants. It's kinda hard to explain in words, but Imma give some examples.

Textzone says "Hey [Player1], You take the front while [Player2] covers you"
Guard says "Hey STM1993, You take the front while Qwertybeef covers you"

Textzone says "[SpeedIns1] ran through here earlier and gave us our info."
Guard says "Grwbs ran through here earlier and gave us our info."

Textzone says "General [CC2] has pumped enough resources into this place, lets make him proud"
Guard says "General GreenGamer has pumped enough resources into this place, lets make him proud"

Essentially I want to be able to let guards name people based off:

When they joined the server ([Player1], [Player2], etc.)
What position they are in on the leaderboard ([SpeedIns1], [SpeedPlay3], etc.)
And calling people off of the community leaderboards ([Lvl3],[Res1],[CC5], etc.)


I'm not sure how textzones are coded or if there's even a way to check for these sorta things, but I think it'll be a neat little thing to add. (At least the player count one, You can have knickers tell specific people what to do)

This would be pretty nifty actually. The tricky part is deciding what the keywords should be. Reading off the global CC leaderboard is a bit unfeasable I think for technical reasons (cause it requires contacting the main DB etc). But little things in-game like whoever is closest to the guard, who has the highest score at the time etc should be possible.

Btw again, I know it's a pain but could we copy/paste this convo over to the steam forums? It really helps give the impression of an active community/dev if new potential customers can actually see our development process and realise that they can get involved :)
