If we can vote to end, can we also vote to kick players?

Could this become a built-in feature or mod?

It is/was a built-in feature. I’m not sure if it survived the Flash to Unity rewrite. Most of the time the vote to boot and direct boot are always the same.

It is possible for a mod to do it.

I've been working on a mod that does this for VTE (2 years ago, maybe I should finish it one day...).

I considered doing it for Vote To Kick as well, but I moved away from that since I figure it would probably be abused too much.

Are we really talking about adding a feature that many players can just arbitrarily unite to kick someone out of a game? Like for example the would-be winner of an FFA? And what % would have to vote for this to work? Obviously not 100% b/c that would include the player being kicked. 100% of N-1?

And how would this work in a 1v1? First one to vote the other off the island wins the game? lol

Make it a toggle feature like everything else. Use with only trusted players.

For this to work. it would obviously have to be a (team) FFA.
The mod can self destruct if its not a FFA.

Okay... I realize that previous statement is ironic. Having trusted players in your game means ya probably don't need a kick button. Hrm.

Eh well, I host 200 player games so that's why I thought about it, although mods don't work in them anyway.

@Alpha
Ignoring that it's not possible, what criteria would you want to kick a player anyhow? How would you prevent abuse of the feature? As in, prevent people from just kicking the player most likely to win?

well you could instead make it a Host Tools mod, that just gives the hosts superpowers to do whatever

that would be very useful in diplos

but seeing how often people are already complaining about hosts in diplo's, thats probably going to be abused a lot as well

Well if I pay $20 to host a 200 player (or 300 player) diplo, shit, I should be able to be as much of an asshole as I want. (Impossible in my games anyway though, we have a good system...)

I see this being more useful in diplos than FFA's.

Diplo players rage a lot.

I don't think this is needed outside of diplos.

LOL, Alpha, also realize that people could vote to kick YOU out of your own own $20 hosted game (;

Not saying they would, just saying they _could_

hence why it should be limited to host only ;)

But there have been bad hosts as well ... rigging games for themselves, so can imagine some hosts kicking other players to snag the win. Or even "accidentally" kicking the wrong player, etc.

"I swear I didn't mean to kick JK"

So you can only kick hosts? Sounds good!
