There's a only a few maps, yes, I added the list of the maps we had and you can always go to GE:S Forums and see the new ones, so just say here which ones you would like to see. Custom maps only appears on the list if they are nominated first.

I'd say remove every map that's way too big for normal play (Runway, Aztec, Siberia, etc.) from the rotation BUT keep them on the server in case we have a brain aneurysm and decide to host a fun night in one of those. Scuttling La Fayette is the best course of action because the doors on that map make me sick and if they don't make you sick, you better get yourself checked out.

Remove all game modes that aren't DM/TDM/Dr. No, LTK, Casino Royale (the simplest game mode around, after DM), MWGG and Arsenal from the server rotation but keep them on the server, in case we get another brain aneurysm and decide to have a fun night and use those.

If Villa from PD isn't broken enough to be called a work-in-progress, add it to the public rotation. Because it's a nice-looking map and the blue ocean takes me away from the carnage happening in the background. same with Funhouse, if it's not big enough to be included in the same list as Runway and Aztec.

For now, it's all I can think of. Take my post for the terrible prose that it is. It's filled with hyperboles as well so don't think I'm the least bit serious about the doors making me physically sick, though they do annoy me from time to time. Basically, any map that doesn't have open doors at all times rustles my jimmies a bit. I'm looking at you, Facility

I agree with adding Villa, but I would say all PD:S maps, they are great. Siberia is only added to the map vote if someone nominates it, same with any other custom map, that can be changed so we will talk about that later when we decide which maps add for now. I would like to add ge_pipes, cy_funhouse and nf_power too, they are good maps and I think that they deserve to be on the public server. As for the game modes and remove those maps from rotation, I think that at least the modes should stay since we don't have a plugin to nominate them, and the maps should stay since they are official and people will like to play on them, Runway is better now and that they are on the vote rotation doesn't means that they have to be voted.

No, just because they are official doesn't mean they should stay. I had this discussion regarding the radar. Not everything the devs do is made of pure gold. Their word is not law. If it doesn't work, why keep it there? It's a fact some modes play like shite and even when there are enough players, they still don't work because people are stupid. Better stick to the basics than risk having the server be emptied every time CTK comes up. These modes can and should stay in case we want to do something different during a fun night, as I mentioned, but I don't think it's even a good idea to have them during RTV.

YOLT is a nice mode but not for regular rotation since it's a brand of DM with 2 lives; it can stay in case there's a RTV but not on regular, non-voted rotation.

The same applies to maps. Just because it's official, doesn't mean it's good. You see, some maps were only designed for single-player. They weren't included in the original game's MP because they would not only tax the hardware during an MP game but also because they didn't work very well, I think.

I'd leave Power and Pipes for RTV only; Funhouse can stay in the normal rotation.

Yes, really.
Glad to see the servers back to their fully functional state (for future reference, UKGame and Multiplay are both terrible hosts).

I think maybe a deathmatch-only server and an all-mode server might be worth considering again.

So do you think that they should be available only for admin access or add a plugin to vote for them to have it in the next round? (I'm not saying it will be done for sure, I will make a thread about that later with votes)

Keep them for admin access only. No need to have yet another plugin to compensate for lousy maps and bad taste from the players. "Hey guys, let's play on Runway!"

So not even having Runway, Aztec... In nominate menu? I think if we remove them from the rtv and map rotation we should at least keep them with the nominate command. With the game modes I will make a thread about that later when we decide all the changes, but I think MWGG should still be there with the "default" ones, it's just like DM but with the Golden Gun, I never seen people leave because it, but yes with CTK or LALD.

No, not even in the nominate command. Many a times I've seen people pick one of those maps since they showed up on the voting menu and then the server became a desert. No matter how you cut it, even Runway, with its fancy system of expanding the playable area if there are enough players, still doesn't work near as well as the devs intended or the players actually wished for. Mind you this is only my opinion.

I don't see a need for another thread if that can be discussed here - and that has already started. Restricting them to the ones that actually work 90% of the time (that is, provide an enjoyable gameplay experience regardless of the number of players in the server) is the way to go so gimmicks and superfluous gameplays aren't necessary because keeping them in a way that works those same 90% requires plugins and requiring plugins adds unnecessary complexity to the server, increases the load (slightly), etc. If there's a simple solution, in this case, removing them, we are better off removing them than trying to find workarounds. KISS principle.

Also, I haven't actually tried it but Dr. No Health (if available to the public) may be an interesting addition for gameplay nomination since it is an interesting twist on DM, but not interesting enough to warrant a full stay on the rotation.

If I make another thread is just to add the poll, I'll see what's better.
Dr. No Health is a good game mode, but if it's not in the rotation, only admins can activate it since we don't have a game mode nomination plugin.

The servers are now updated to 4.2.4! The maps will be added soon, on this or next week. Not enough people discussed about other tweaks so we will wait.

ge_stack_xmas added to public (and private) servers! (Just for holidays) If you want any other map just say it here, do you want to add ge_pipes, nf_power and cy_funhouse? What about game modes? I want to be sure which ones you don't want to see or the ones you want to.

This is the gameplay cycle right now:

gameplaycycle.txt
CaptureTheKey
DeathMatch
Uplink
LTK
YOLT
Arsenal
DeathMatch
LTK
Uplink
MWGG
LiveAndLetDie
DeathMatch
CasinoRoyale


We can remove some game modes or just make them appear less adding more modes like DeathMatch, MWGG or LTK between them. You can post here the one you would like to see, and it can be accepted or modified.
I would like to add PD:S maps too, but I need to test them first in a clean GE:S install to see if they work fine, I think they had some texture problems. nf_power is a remake of a map from Nightfire, PC version I think.
