I've heard some people (including me) complaining about Moltovs in retakes. I feel like they should be changed so people can't sit in a fire and be rewarded by killing an under prepared enemy. I don't think they should do team damage, however they should indicate when someone's pushing a teammate's molly by making the burning sound. In the end it's not really a big deal, but a change could be nice.

I totally agree, I think being able to charge your own teammate's molotovs without consequence is a bit OP. Unfortunately, as there are 2 sides to just about everything, the possibility of griefing with team damage is a bit high being public servers as well. I think if we can find a good balance we can definitely do something with this! The idea of the sound is a good one, I like that as a good first baby step towards the right direction, I'll look into trying to implement this. :D

Just throwing out ideas, but would it be possible to make walking in friendly molotovs just slow you without taking damage?

How about they make the hit sound of the molotov but don't deal any damage, that way people hear you coming through them and you can't grief/get griefed by your teammates.

That's a great idea also, that could be a penalty

That's what aceraceae aceraceae was suggesting :)

I have implemented this change into Retakes #3 for testing purposes. Molotovs will not do damage to teammates, however will make the hit sound. Teammates will also produce hit sounds if shot by a teammate.

Let me know how you guys like it!

I tried to test this and I didnt hear either of the changes. I even threw a molly at a teammate just to double check and I didnt hear any noise as well as had people shoot me. It sounds the same as the other servers still.

Easy enough to remove, I'll do that tomorrow 👍

Edit: Just kidding, removed the messages now, it will be live after a map change.
