|2: How do you get experience?|
|You kill enemies or do certain tasks to get points. Normally 1 point on the Sven Co-op scoreboard is equal to 5 experience points.
Some enemies and tasks provide more points than others.
|4: How do I choose upgrades?|
|When you gain a level the upgrades menu should come up automatically.
If it doesn't, say selectskills in game.
|6: I'd like to change what skills I have. Can I do this?|
|Yes. Say resetskills in game to reset your upgrades. You can then reallocate your points.
This does not alter the points and levels you have gained.
|7: How can I see what level everyone else is?|
|If you're in game say playerskills.
You can't see everyone else's skills in game, only their level and medals. You will not see their rank either.
On this website you can see many details about players on their profiles.
|8: How do I get medals and what do they do?|
|Medals are handed out by administrators to players who are nice, helpful and regularly play on our servers. We can also take them away from abusive players!
Medals do the same as the awareness skill, providing a general improvement to all other skills. However, they are less effective than the awareness skill.
They are there more for show than ability gain.
|9: What are the ranks for, and how long until I reach them?|
|The ranks do nothing special. It's just a title in relation to your level.
You do not need to do anything to claim the rank. You will be given it automatically when you reach the required level.
Your rank does not show to other players in game, only to you. Other people can see it in your profile though.
|10: Does my experience ever expire?|
|No. Once you get experience, it's saved on our database. It has no expire date, although we can remove experience if we notice players whoring it or abusing the plugin.|
|11: I've lost all my XP and I have minus 1 medals! What the hell?|
|You may find yourself losing all of your XP and medals when returning to one of our servers. We are not 100% certain of the cause.
If his happens you need to contact a manager with your steam ID via email or a private message on the message board.
You will need proof off an administrator to verify the level you were last at and how many medals you had. If you take a screenshot of yourself playing on one of our servers, providing your steam ID is shown, it is proof.
If you are unable to get this proof, we will have to set your level and medals to what was on our last backup. Daily backups of the XP table are generated every midnight (GMT) for 14 days. This means you have 14 days to query your XP loss or it's gone for good.
It is important that you query your loss as soon as possible!
We apologise for the inconvenience caused.
Do not request XP resets via any instant chat mediums such as IRC, Steam friends, and admin callouts from in game. These may not be noticed/recorded, and forgotten about. Use email or a private message via our forums only.
|12: Why doesn't my name show on my profile?|
|For some reason your name hasn't been tracked.
Connect to one of our game servers again and see if it appears then. If not, try changing your name.
|13: Why don't I get assault rifle grenades or minigun ammo anymore?|
|We took these features off by popular demand. Consistently being given assault rifle grenades or minigun ammo with the ammo reincarnation skill vastly ruined game play and promoted XP whoring.
You can still get them but only via completely random ammo. Not just by holding the assault rifle or minigun.
|14: What is XP hoarding? Who are classed as XP hoarders?|
|An XP hoarder is a player joins and plays purely to get more XP.
They will not contribute towards map objectives, help team-mates (including providing medication), and often rush to the explosives and minigun very quickly.
They will also vote for maps designed to get more XP such as splatter or spend a whole map sitting under an osprey with a minigun.
|15: Can I use Multiplay's XP database on my server?|
|No. I'm not going to bother explaining the security risks on that one.
We will not provide SQL dumps of our XP table either so don't ask.
|16: Why do some maps give less XP per point than others?|
|We felt that some maps were exploited too much, voted only to spam experience. Because of this we decided to adjust the XP rate on certain maps.|
|17: Don't you think this XP mod ruins Sven Co-op?|
|Partly, however we modify it to the majority request of our regulars.|
