Didn't see you around on the server the last couple of days xD
At least not when I was on, during the evening.

Map testing

Post by XpoH »

I came in several times, ran a few maps alone, liked some. However, now that the map "ONS-{Fs}-BridgeHead" is hanging on the server, I can't do it, because after loading the map, it immediately restarts, and in a circle. It is treated only by restarting the game. Maybe someone will figure out what the problem is?

Thanks Pohy and sorry for the late reply. I restarted the server and the map loaded for me.

Looks like either ONS-Agamendon or ONS-Dock13 caused the loop. I've removed both of them from the server as a precaution.

Can you put the map repeat rate to 0 please.
As well as the bot difficulty to Adept? Not cool the sharpshooting bots when looking at maps.

Made some comments about some maps in chat.

Sorry for the late reply, had some PC troubles after a hardware upgrade.

The map repeat rate is already 0, but I have also changed the "Mid-Game Vote Percentage" to the lowest possible value - hopefully that means you can switch maps more easily once you have seen enough of one.

Lowered bot difficulty to "Adept".

Let me know if you need anything else changed.

Update: First Test Maps are on the main server!

Dave, Lou and I tested maps for 5 hrs yesterday and aren't even done yet, but we already came up with a list of map candidates that we want to test with all of our players. We will upload these in batches of 5 maps to the CEONSS main server over the next weeks (each batch online for a week or two), all called ONS-TESTME-Mapname.

In the past we have often spent a lot of time on editing maps only for some of them to not be popular and now collect dust in a corner. This time we want to approach it differently and involve our community from the beginning:

The test maps are unedited and will all need some basic improvements (like full weapon lockers, more vehicles, bad lighting, some maps will need more nodes or a different node layout, etc.). Please focus on whether or not you think this map has potential and if you think it should go on the main roster after some editing. If you already have some ideas for the edit, please feel free to post them as well.

We will focus our time and effort on the maps that YOU think would be great and should go on the server.

On the server right now:

- ONS-TESTME-DeathCanyon
- ONS-TESTME-Desolate
- ONS-TESTME-DG-Meadowland-32b
- ONS-TESTME-DG-SandStone
- ONS-TESTME-DissonexEXT

Please check them out and leave your thoughts here, on our discord channel or in the in-game chat while playing the maps! :thumbup:

(I will be on vacation for a week, please speak to Dave if you have any questions or want to discuss anything about the maps or the testing.)
