Things such as gaining insanity when an action is done can only be added by the devs themselves.Furthermore I don't think that's even doable when it comes to how plugins work.

indeed: much as the client has no idea about many things going on on the server, the server has no idea about what kind of wizardry is running within your client. Consider it a delicate balance.
I have neither the crayons nor the time to explain it to you.

From the balance perspective, Marp and JC wanted it, Marp even made the icon for it, so that's that.
Also, it is so simple to make, that I suspect many already have such a tool, it is more a question of having an even playing field.

And population is so sparse anyways, it may help turn some near miss into a more entertaining encounter. :D

This is how this is gonna play out:
People forget to turn alarm on but since they are too dependent on it they will lose all their awareness of map and the area around them thus making it easier for other players to sneak up on them. At least that's what's gonna happen for people in the same bracket as heffernan when it comes to common sense.

I Think the reason the devs likes it is because it's probably gonna be used at least as much as an offensive addon.

I present to you, a player alert plugin!

Someone came to me and asked for a plugin like this, and I sent him to Marp to get it approved, as I did not think this would be OK.
Much to my surprise, Marp said that he AND JC think it's ok!
And to cast away the last of my doubts, Marp even made the icon for this one!
And no, it's not a phallic symbol, at least if you don't turn it upside down...

Shamelessly salvaging code from Kandarims Frog/Critter Plugin, and some code from the clients timers that were originally made by Ender,
I basically had not much to do myself to make it work, or in other words, it really is so simple.

Note: You can use a custom wave file as alert sound, simply name it alertsound.wav and place it in your salem folder, usually found under "Users/YourUser/Salem".
Note2: You can also use a custom wave file for the timers of the custom clients, by placing a file there named timer.wav in the same place.


Usage:

Simply turn it on by clicking the icon, or using the hotkey "j".

It will use the timers alarm sound as default.

And it will go off if anything with a player model (except yourself) is nearby, this may include: other players, NPCs, friends, mannequins, the recently deceased, ....

After a successful alarm, you need to manually re-activate it for another use.



Here's the most important java part of the code:

   }

}


And some links...

... one for the bold and reckless, to an already compiled jar

... and one to a .zip of the project



been a while since i nauseated myself by checking this thread, i am certain the game needed this as badly as a nuclear emp pulse in the sky over the server.
