overview: As most of you know we are restricted to 1 popular server based on bandwidth. if we have more than 1 popular server then we go over the bandwidth limit for the month. so here is a possible solution to this problem. If we incorporate settings on the Fly like on eds server, then we could flip between several different servers maybe rotate them each day.
More specifics: We could have a CTF server maybe splitting those days into 1 flag and team(2 flag). We could also have the Wild fortress. We could also have zombie shooting too. maybe even a rubber server. Also a race to win server would be possible.

if all that is possible with setting's on the fly script then maybe we could make more great servers.
this is just a possible solution to our server bandwidth problems.

anyway i would like to hear your opinions on this.

Maybe have it the same way as we're switching maps each round, switch game types each match? So play one map wild fortress, then CTF, then mayhem, and so on…

not each map
each day switch the whole server's map's can't you take day mod 5 =0 through 4 and make that day play as a certain server

Sorry, that was supposed to say “each match”. Or maybe even every few map. But I fear that if the server would change its mode every day, players would just come on certain days, and it would probably be hated very much...

i think it would be more hated each match though. because then they have to sit through rounds that they hate. At least with each day they would know that that day is designated for a certain type of challenge. I think CTF(1 and 2 flag), Shooting and Fortress could draw good crowds anything else is debatable. maybe a poll or people just give opinions on this.

I think Wild Fortress should remain a fortress for now.
CTWCTF was fairly popular, but never as busy as CT Wild, and it was quite different, on the hole a different crowd went there. True, a lot of people went to both, but some only liked only one or the other.
I think we should concentrate on fortress for now, and if in the future we are able to host more servers, we can think about CTF, etc.

And give wrtl a chance, he's only been admin for a day and has already made some great behind the scenes changes.

Idea: why don't you keep CT Wild Fortress, but limit it to only 12 people maybe or even 10. Get rid of CT dogfight and catfight because those are pointless (they are fun and don't take up much bandwidth, but they do lag the wild server somehow...). Now create a server called: Crazy Tronners Super Crazy Wild Stuff (or something). Have it alternate every match. Maybe only allow 10 people or so. Alternate from Wild Fort, to Regular Fort, to 3/4 team fort, to CTF. Then the next day have it alternate free for all types such as: Low Rubber, High Rubber, Sumo, Race to winzone. This offers a lot of different flavor, while still keeping the normal Wild Fort. This will keep a popular server and potentially add a new one.

well how about we see who else can host a server? voodoo did... all u need i suppose is a small hard drive and connect it to ur screen using a multiport and to ur internet etc... just set up the server and switch back to ur normal computer...


oh and durka, we are not really a rubber kind of clan..


I was thinking though if we did make another server, nano is a very popular level on wild, we could make a nano free-for-all (basically a low rubber with nano settings)

You can do that, but with most home internet connections you won't get a good server. Usually the bandwidth is too limited and allows only for a certain number of players, and lag is usually higher, too Sad

I began to set up a server a few days ago. it's a clone of ed's CTF because that's what we need right now most. I almost finished. just have some problems with the database (rights...). as soon as it works I'll announce it so we all can test (performance, lag, etc...). located in Switzerland.

im waitng for some wild maps for a long, if i went for a smoke i would miss the best map and have to waiti to the end of cycle (good i like playing other map too). i think 10 or even 8 userlimit is good (it will not lag my GPU any more, yes i know i need sth beter than GF2MX440 - 5 years old) and you caould set another server for few users (another cats/dogs? for me ok but i know you dont like it at all). do what you want, you know my opininon now Smile
