Something I thought yesterday that I wondered if it could be a nice thing for tremulous.
What if we had in-game actions from spectators that they could do?
Like have them be able to place relics after X time, (If the game takes too long.) (And maybe just a randomly selected person could, or two.) If the person is afk, we would give the temp. permission mode to another one automatically. (Detecting it could be as easy as if no commands used by this little system is sent in Y time, do Z.)
Could maybe be nice to have spectators be able to do something once in a while. Imagine that they had like a little puzzle game on their end that if they manage to finish in time or successfully. Depending on how well they did, an effect would be added in the current match.
Like, humans can temporarily only use their side-arm (Blaster). Aliens explodes on hit (1 death only.) dealing extra damage to the surrounding objects. An alien could get bigger and bigger (with a limit of course.)
Sure it’s not a super important feature, but it could be a maybe nice feature?
