    Question Custom Combat Maps?

    I was wondering if anyone would like to try adding a few custom combat maps to the cycle (removing oh say...ns_bast and co_kestral? :-D). I've found a few that I've really liked that are much more creative than the current ones. I'd like to try out one or two of them on the server just because they seem to give more of a point to combat games than right now.

    Re: Custom Combat Maps?

    Traditionally, custom maps are available only on member servers, not public servers. As a show of support and thanks to Yellow-Asterisk, I've made an exception with co_asterisk, which is much enjoyed when its on the server.

    I'm not ruling out the possibility of other custom maps on the server in the future, but I plan to never exceed one custom CO map available on the server at any given time.

    Additional custom maps are one of multiple enhancements that would be available to us on a private server but will not be made available on our public server.

    I would enjoy custom CO maps without needing to play CO more to justify it, I think. It's something I look forward to playing with if we ever have enough members to support the regular use of a private server, where we could have several custom maps.

    Unhappy Re: Custom Combat Maps?



    Oh well...

    I have some really good ones too...could we put one slot on the server for a custom co_"namehere" map? I'm just trying to give a little more attention to co maps because they are so ignored. I know the purpose of the server is ns maps but I find the combat maps we play inbetween to be...dull and repetative. I want to include a random custom map because it gives us a chance to experience something new. I mean we could apply this for ns maps also but its very very rare you find one balanced enough.
    With the votemap command on the server you could just skip over it...

    Dont you want to at least occasionally, if your up for it, experience something new?

    Feel free to recommend custom maps for the future, be it on the public server or on the private server, should we one day stand one up.

    Re: Custom Combat Maps?

    I wouldn't mind having custom CO maps as long as it isnt a ton of them. Say, 2 or 3? It would add some more variety, at the least. CO is very boring after a while.

    Re: Custom Combat Maps?

    Lately I've been messing around on custom map servers and have run into some pretty........interesting......maps. Marine vs. marine can get pretty aggrivating.

    Get resupply first - that'll keep you alive a bit longer in the beginning (more so than anything else). Then Weap 1 -> shotty -> hmg -> weap2 -> weap3 -> catapacks -> whatever else you want. No other build will get you as many kills as this.

    HMG is the pwn in MvM - bar none. I usually go for HA after that.
