Give money to team members error


Recommended Posts

I'm need a mod which is give money to players in team. Like: if someone in police team, he get 20000$, but if player don't have team or in criminal team, he don't get money.

This is my script for this, but it isn't good:

function tekmoney () 
local money = 20000 
local playerTeam = getTeamName ( theTeam ) 
for id, player in ipairs(getElementsByType("player")) do 
if getTeamName ( theTeam ) == "TEK" then 
givePlayerMoney ( player, money ) 
outputChatBox ( "[TEAM] Money received.", getRootElement(), 255, 255, 255, true ) 
setTimer ( tekmoney, 5000, 0)

function giveTeamMembersMoney(theTeam, money) 
    for id, plr in ipairs(getElementsByType("player")) do 
        if getPlayerTeam(plr) == getTeamFromName(theTeam) then 
            givePlayerMoney ( plr, money ) 
            outputChatBox ( "[TEAM] Money received.", plr, 255, 255, 255, true ) 

You're trying to get a team name from a nil object on line 3, then you compare the same thing with a constant string named "TEK" which applies to all players, "player" is also a class name, it may work for now but in the future when lua get's more object orientated it won't work using class names as variables. The chat output was also seen to all online players unless it crashed before it got there, the above code does what you want, don't forget to pass the arguments. An example call would look like this:

giveTeamMembersMoney("Police", 20000)  -- give members of the police team $20´000 
giveTeamMembersMoney("Criminals", 4000)  -- give members of the criminals team $4´000
