DoD#1 - Will be closing if you don't want it

DoD#1 is now running a fixed cycle using the following 5 great maps:

dod_avalanche
dod_churchyard_b5
dod_flash
dod_salerno
dod_anzio

The duration of each map is 30 minutes before changing automatically.

The swapme command is also now fully working for everyone, without players having to fiddle with cl_restrict_server_commands settings. Therefore its easy for players to switch between DoD#1 and DoD#2.

Lets give this a try and see if we can get DoD#1 being better used.

well, the HC boys tried many times to get #1 started, but all the people who actually wanted customs didnt come over from donner.
anyway, hopefully some people will play this also now..

Aaw, wish argentan was there. :<

Is the cl_restrict_server_commands "0" still required for interserver chat? When I've been on #1 and tried to fish some players from #2, I don't even get a response. One or two regulars show up, we have a 30 minute brawl and that's it. :=

Interserver chat has never needed cl_restrict_server_commands 0.

If you didn't get a response from the other server its because they either didn't know how to respond, or just being plain rude.

I do appreciate the players that are helping to get a 2nd DoD server running. It seems insane that one server gets totally full and the other is left empty.

I _really_ liked the customs that were on #1, too bad the average dod player doesn't like customs at all. Lets hope this + smaller sized donner helps for the low numbers.

And would it be possible to introduce a new map to rotation every once in a while? as it seems ppl like the custom maps once they've played them for a couple of times (take churchyard for example). But of course only if the server gets players.

I like the idea they have for 1.6, a set amount of maps (best valve maps for DoD:s) and a number of custom maps that get changed.

After 1 gets a regular player base it a simlar idea might be a good idea.

Yeah, we'll adjust some of the maps on cycle each month to keep it fresh.

Must agree with White Dove. It was good to play on some of the reg. maps again :) Also good to see it had a mix of UKCS and some new faces playing yesterday :)

Nice idea about changing the map cycle regularly TC, to "keep it fresh" :)

i played cherbourg with peds the other day, and i found the map WAY too big, even for a 32 man server. i didnt like it either, so my personal opinion comes in the way for a more objective view :?
