It has been almost empty to empty now. I just came on with the Twin Tower may in play and there were 5 players. Too big a map for 5 players. I asked everyone if they want to switch back to our m,ap and it was unanimous. When I switched the server was filling up. Then the map changed again and half of the players left.



Might also be the "Bad map" problem, when players can't join because it says "Missing map". This isn't going to be helping of course :/ . Hydra is making a place where everyone can download the maps. Our members and regulars who check the website will be able to connect to the server again then :thumbup:

Most people aren't going to come to the site and download custom maps. If it comes up in error, take it off the server imo.

On another issue, we should update the MOTD to update incoming players that this is temporary so they don't take us off their favorites list. This was a neat little project ... but as I stated earlier, it needs to be limited, like rotation weekends, or rotation saturday, etc.

It's causing problems not only with maps, but attendance. I'd say the project failed, easy to see.

thank you! wasn't sure how to fix the problem as i wasn't having trouble downloading maps from other servers.

the new rotation is a double-edged sword, on one hand the change of pace is a good thing after playing one map far too much (though i guess you could take a break/switch servers), though it feels like the original tower is never on enough (or on long enough) or there isn't enough players to constitute such giant maps like foxhunt. i'm interested to see how this turns out as i have actually enjoyed some of the new maps when the server was active.

"OCD_Orange_Tower_V2" is another problem map for me btw

I think that the cause of the 0/24 slots and such is due to users unable to download the maps. It's not just a few of us but a lot of us. That accumulates and makes a big difference.

We were chatting in server about an orange map, and everyone loves it.
maybe we could put this one in rotation instead of the problematic one?

IMO the missing maps of course directly lead to empty slots, but nevertheless I noticed way less traffic on our server than before we started the rotation and stayed with our _op. Maybe its also the time settings, 30 mins are gone quickly and a rotation based on total wins on one side might be a good addition. Starting rotation after total 4 wins on axis/allies side or so. I also support now the idea of orange maps only, orange was and still is the reason why people join us. Good catch with the indoor map, I played a different version of that one pretty often and loved! =)

Did a quick search, this is the best I could find out ;;

You can obtain these maps simply by playing at our server. We have a fastdl server, so downloads should be quick. If you want to get the maps before playing here, feel free to download them by using google and searching for the map name. Though if you do that and don't know how to correctly unzip maps and their files, don't complain to us when they don't work!

Not sure if that helps, or is doable *shrug* ... rare map apparently

if you have the map you can put it onto a upload site and provide us with a download link.
just go to C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\SteamApps\common\Day of Defeat Source\dod\download\maps to find the map file.
You can use this site here if you don't have one you prefer. http://www.megafileupload.com/
