Dear All,

I have recently been thinking about what would it be if we could have an automatic "map rotator" for only Foodwall and A-bomb set on the server. It is very sad to see the server being empty bc the map is too big for the players or they don't like it and they leave.

This was originally LuckyBicz's idea back in those days and it was filling the server ! And when is admin around can always change the map to something more "exciting", untill then players can join to the most "beloved" maps, and it could keep the server maybe more busy :) I think we could give it a try :)

What y'all think about it? :)

Haha, the votes are very different xD. Well, actually, there is 2 votes on what I said (considering Gyuri's vote) :D :D .

Anyway, whatever we do, I hope people still join the server and that we can all have fun together ;) .

Hi Guys ,

i think everyone is saying the same thing , which is we should have all the maps available plus we should have some of the maps in the map rotator

so that the players wouldn't find it difficult with big maps when no admins are around

our only confusion is here is which are the maps to be added in the map rotator and the type of game while the server is running in automatic map rotator mode


if you read the first post by Dius who started the thread she speaks of past experience where in map rotator was put with only two maps in BS mode.

which brought back some life to server in the past , i took that as an input and suggested putting only abomb and food ,

but then we can always experiment with rotator as it is something run while no admins are around and the number of players is less.

the who idea is to keep the server active by putting some maps which will attract some players and keep those who joined already.

as i mentioned in my previous post in this thread why dont we try and see which are the maps giving us more response ,

we make changes in every week and come to a conclusion and follow that

player statistics ( number of player connected to server at any time ) is available at markmods ,

so far we have the following suggestions for map rotator

1) Dius - abomb and foodwall in BS
2) toothless - abomb and foodwall in two game mode (aar and Bs)
3) Sussy - abomb , foodwal , fairfax in two game mode (aar and bs)
4) hellB and Gyuri - abomb , foodwall , fairfax , wollcot in BS

Regards.

Dear Helly,

We are not HOP but we have our own rules. If We always goes by player’s opinion, you won't have peace ✌️.
Those players won't care about what we put. They will join or they will just drop.
They just need a place to play.
And SA always not around.

Regards.

But we are not HOP, we are SH. Here we actually listen to the players's opinions ;) .

Still, my vote goes for keeping things as they are. The classic way, with the maps I wrote before.

And if you want to apply Map rotator: 4 in the rotator and the rest as options to be chosen by SAs.

Hi friends ,

We can actually try that i mean mixed game types in map rotator , never had it before i guess

but please dont put any big maps , it will fail the purpose of map rotator which is to keep players in :)

my list would be simple abomb and food with or without mixed game types.

map rotator is only for the benefit of players at the time when we admins are not around

so i feel as long as it dosent crash the server we dont need to worry about what is in map rotator

the moment an admin joins we can put any map in BS or any other mode as we wish

i think we need not worry about the maps in the map rotator as long as it attracts players and keeps our server live

We can actually experiment with different types of game and maps in the map rotator and see which gives us the best response

Regards,

But if we want to play a Special mode, and if people agrees, we can have a SA change to that mode (but not being changed automatically).
Of course, as long as this doesn't cause a risk of server crash, lol.


Could have crash the server if the game mode is set while playing or from webadmin?
That's why, I am suggesting two mixed game mode with map rotator

That list is a little confusing :D .
I think it has too many Foodwall and Abomb. Also, I'm sure players will be complaining about Special modes.


I don't think player will complain about special mode. You have to set things right.
We own the server and we make the rules about spawn camping, english only or etc ..
When you play in HOP, you can't use spray. Can you complain about it?
I played in HOP and I can't use spray. They will kick you out if you don't comply. :D :D

I don't think it is confusing because you don't need to bother about maps even you are playing in the game.
You don't need to set the map again if there is fewer player with big maps.
My suggestion was mixed game mode and in the favour of Foodwall, Abomb and Fairfax plus other big maps.
It is easier when no admin around there.

Here's my vote for the Maps list.

For Map rotation:
1. Foodwall.
2. Bomb.
3. Fairfax.
4. Wolcott.
For a SA to choose:
5. DNA.
6. Garage.
7. Hospital.
8. Casino.
9. Taronne.
10. Training.
11. Library.
12. Meat Barn.
13. Power Plant... I mean Powerblant :P .

But if we want to play a Special mode, and if people agrees, we can have a SA change to that mode (but not being changed automatically).
Of course, as long as this doesn't cause a risk of server crash, lol.


Yeah, just keep it simple. :)

Hi All,

I don't think it is a good idea about having only two maps. I suggest to have more rotation for Abomb, Foodwall and Fairfax.
And should add few other game mode too. But of course, should add few rotation only.
I am seeing that people are so selfish and they joined spec or view mode if they don't like the game mode or maps.
I think our own member should stay put in the game even doesn't like the game mode or maps.

Example : we should add like below arrangement.

1) Foodwall : BS
2) Abomb : BS
3) Fairfax : BS
4) Foodwall or Abomb : VIP (maybe)
5) Wolcott : BS
6) Foodwall: BS
7) Fairfax: BS
8) DNA: BS
9) Foodwall: BS
10) Abomb: AAR (maybe)
11) AutoGarage: BS

I hope these proposal won't have any problem.
I don't have much time to play the game even in this pandemic situation.
I hope you guys can stay longer even after this pandemic situation.

Sussy

I agree with having a Map rotator, but I also agree with DRD about adding at least 2 more maps in the rotation. These are my votes:

1. Foodwall.
2. Abomb.
3. Fairfax.
4. Wolcott

Btw, I tought Gyuri activated the Map rotator. What happened? It got deactivated?

Buuut let's not remove the other maps that we have in the Map list right now :D . Casino, Library, DNA, etc.

Hi DRD ,

the problem observed is when the number of players are less no one will join in a big map , thinning the player availability further and eventually server will have no players.

ppl are too lazy to walk / run around to find someone to kill/ arrest :D

currently we have foodwall , abomb , and wolcot in map rotator ,

all other most preferred maps are available , can be put by even by webadmin access ( correct me if i am wrong regarding webadmin )

Regards,

Hello lovely People

while this is a good idea that proven its efficiency before, but I personally find it boring if the players got stuck with 2 maps only and no admin joined for long time to switch things up, so I recommend adding at least another 2 loved maps that people like to play

please note that I was out of the loop for a long time, so maybe things aren't the way I remember them to be
eventually, the active fellas will know better than me

Is it done, really? I was just going to write about it: we should make it happen already.
It's really a good idea, and I think it will help everyone in these times of "not-so-active-as-before".
See you.

Is there any Manager out there in the universe who could consider giving a try to set map rotator finally, or what y'all bosses think about it anyway? :blink: :unsure: :)
