View Full Version : Custom Map Game with Valve Map Regulars???



-LMA-
Jan 06, 2009, 12:58 PM
Was thinking that it would be interesting to get some regulars from the valve maps server to partake in a couple of games on the custom maps server to change it up for everyone and try something new and fun for just one day/night. Just a neat idea I thought would be fun.

So if you're down, reply here and if enough people are interested we can all plan on a future date and time :D

As there's only a few that really post here, I'd say it would just be a good idea to bring this idea up while playing when a bunch of regulars are online, in-game.

I got tired of custom maps long ago (except warpath, don't know why that's not official) but it would be a fun change of pace and I'd be up for it.

Not too fond of custom maps

Versed
Jan 06, 2009, 06:23 PM
When I played CSS I got bored of the official maps after a while and wanted custom maps. I feel that way about TF2 now and would love to play the custom maps, but there's never anyone on the server. So I'd be willing to participate if anyone else wanted to.

Yea, it's mainly that when you go to a custom map server, what happens 9 outta 10 of the time? It's n00bs that run it and mess up the experience and the admins either change shit in game and half the people aren't really playing to win. This way, we are all playing like as if we were playing on the valve maps just with a change, with different maps to make things more interesting.


P.S. More people reply!

cp_orange_x3... It is the most popular non-valve map in TF2 and is only a 3 mb download. In fact, I seem to remember my server playing only that and globally outranking all of your servers.

Yea but I was kinda thinking it would be better to get enough people involved and then set a date so we can all get ready and get on at the same time and get this thing going with at least 12-15 people at least instead of just 6-8 or whoever is on our friends list at the time.

P.S. I agree with cp_orange_x3 as well as the Mario Kart map :D

Warpath and Lazytown are the best. Toy Fort is alright.

I think orange maps are terrible unless you're a sniper.
I remember a cp map with a bunch of cows that was really good, but don't remember the name of it.

cp_freight and cp_broma only because I don't want to play them in cevo

Biggs
Jan 08, 2009, 12:22 AM
Broma is a pretty big download, but it's a well designed map.


ctf_royal_b3 (http://www.fpsbanana.com/maps/48291) can be pretty fun.
pl_hoodoo (http://www.fpsbanana.com/maps/62351) is another good one.

Are we looking for high quality custom maps (as in looks) or proven fun custom maps with no regard to aesthetics?

good customs:

ctf_mach4 (small map, good firefights, can lead to engi turtling though)
cp_broma
cp_frieght
ctf_convoy
cyberpunk (deathmatch style map but it has alot of attention to detail in the map itself)
arena_lighthouse_b2 (played this on 2f2f, was actually a well put together arena map)

There are plenty of good custom maps.

That's 9 people. I say we get at least get a couple of more people to reply to this thread and then when it's time we PM people on our friends list to join as well. Should give us about 14-15 or so people, then when some random people start searching up servers and see that many people on one of them, it should get more people coming into the server (this event would probably also help that server get more traffic in the long run as well)

I would suggest this should all go down on a Saturday night, when most people don't have work or school.

save cyberpunk...i would definatly be down if it were just these, but the reason people don't play custom maps seriously is because you can't play mario kart seriously, plus its an extremely lame map regardless. i would vote

ctf_mach4
ctf_convoy (not that great, but if played seriously, is a lot of fun)
cp_broma
cp_station (if you add station i am 100% down for playing)
cp_freight
and of course
pl_hoodoo

This afternoon?

4pm?

I think 5pm sounds good. First few to post yes or no get to decide for everyone else.

I'll make an announcement/event about it in the Steam group.

The CM server has been revamped. It's now got a bomb rotation (cp_broma, cp_oilfield, cp_freight, cp_egypt, cp_busytown, cp_junction, ctf_mach4, ctf_convoy, pl_hoodoo, pl_halfacre [not in that order]) and all of the mods and custom content have been removed. All hail the SourceOP.com [Custom Maps] [NO MODS] server.

Yeah, we're using the latest version of all the maps, so we actually do have convoy_v2. I just didn't include the extra stuff when I was typing out the list :roll:

Edit- Has anyone ever played pl_waste_b1? I tested it out by myself and it looked like the map had potential.
http://forums.tf2maps.net/downloads.php?do=file&id=959

It's more like a 5 point CP map as the cart goes back and forth between the teams. In which case, I assume the losing team gets the longer respawn so it's not impossible to win. I think it's worth adding and testing it one night.

I definitely don't think it's a bad idea to start taking map requests. Then we can have "event" nights and keep the best of the requested maps. I'll make a list and then talk to DF about the details.

To Drunken F00l: Good Idea?

Map requests are always good even if it doesn't make it in the rotation. At least that way it will be available for voting.
