Bonus system:

Original idea from Army Ranks Ultimate plugin. Unlike Army Ranks Ultimate, you can specify your own bonus items, not just enable/disable hardcoded items Bonus configuration file - addons/amxmodx/configs/aes/bonus.ini.

Configuration bonus system similar to the plugin HLPresents.

There is 2 segments:

  • [spawn] - sets bonus items on spawn.
  • [bonus_menu] - bonus items in /anew menu.

Every new item must be started with  <give>  or <call> construction .

  • <give> - gives item specified in  item field.
  • <call> - call function from other plugin.

Configuration fields:

  • item - item classname for construction <give>.
  • name - item name in menu, you can use LANG_ prefix for use dictionary aes.txt
  • levels - sets how many items should player get for each level. Items give count for <give>. Passing as 2nd parameter in <call>. Use -1 for dont call function on this level.
  • plugin - plugin file name for <call> .
  • function - function name in plugin for <call> . 1st parameter - players id, 2nd parameter - value from levels field.
  • points - bonus points for use this item in /anew menu.

Counter-Strike bonuses requires aes_bonus_cstrike plugin to run.

Bonus items in menu:

  • M4A1 +ammo.
  • AK47 +ammo.
  • AWP +ammo.
