As much as I myself would love to talk to teammates when dead, I think it wouldn't be fair especially when you get killed by a spy or whateveretc.    Unless you are talking about something else....just my opinion though.

Love the new maps I honestly think they breathe new life into the server sometimes.  I notice they frequently release updates to them in other servers so yes I agree a monthly update would be neat.


Thanks for the additions though!

yeah agreed. it's a subject that needs to be discussed at least. This is the only server that I know of that has it disabled.

We removed Borax from the custom map list for now.
Out of the 4 added custom maps, Borax was definitely the most unpopular. I've rarely it seen played to the end, and most times the map scared everybody away even before the first round was over.

Looking at the current map votes, it would seem beerbowl is the next one with the most votes. Thoughts?

I propose we add 4 new maps to the rotation by the end of July. Perhaps 2 custom maps +2 standard maps to choose from the votation menu.

These are my recommendations:

Definitely a good time to add one or two new maps (since we removed one).

I don't know if this is workable but I would like to see the new maps be made RTV exempt for a period of time until people get used to them. Newer players will play a new map for 10 seconds and want to RTV. To go play Goldwater or Badrush for the tenth time that night. It would give people a chance to learn the choke points and sentry positions from more experienced players. The map Metroplis b5 is a map people will bitch like hell when the round starts and then it starts to get REALLY quiet because it's a really great in your face battle map.

Greetings, folks.

I haven't played cp_gravelpit in a while.  Would like to see that with Hyperion's players...   :P

Also, is there a list of the current rotations for the servers posted somewhere?

Regards,
Falc

Hey Falconeer,

Right now, our two servers are focused on payload maps only. If there was a high demand for another mode, like capture points, we could try to do something different, a new server or changes to Votation. I'm open to suggestions, but the goal is to at least get enough traffic so that the server isn't empty and useless.

The current map list on Payload is: all official pl and plr maps and a few customs: pl_swiftwater_frc2, pl_borax_rc2 (removed, not popular), pl_deadwood, pl_halfacre.
The current map list on Votation is: all official pl maps

Hey Vic-Dog,

It's a good idea. We'll think about it, and see if we can implement something like that. I'll let you guys know.

Ah, was not aware of that.  I enjoy CP maps but the 'clientele' on the servers is more important.

Well, I'm not against having a Capture Point server. I'm just not sure there's enough demand for one. It's something we're often thinking about... "should we open a 3rd TF2 server?" I'd hate to start one and see it be empty all the time.

My recommendation is to add 2 maps (beerbowl & cashworks), plus 1 map called Borneo (the map maker is a regular on the server and wants us to try it). Borneo was made in 2011. I was thinking maybe we can try it for a week and see if players like it.

the updated MOTD banners for the new maps are all set. Perhaps we can come back in August and look at what maps are causing problems for the server.

They're not live yet. Need to do a bit more testing. Soon :)

Totally agree.  My observations have been Payload is full most of the time, with votation getting the overflow.  Instead of getting a new server, perhaps turn votation into an experimental server?  See what gets played a lot on votation and use that to select maps for payload (the Hyperion 'flagship' server).   :P
