Dermiss, take a screenshot and we can remove them, if they are a problem for snipers. :)

was on donner last night(server 2) and they looked pretty good! the server itself felt a bit wierd, my ping was higher than usual, bit of lag every now and then. Went onto colmar (server 1)(my ping was lower and no lag, how odd) and tbh i didnt really notice the posters, they were kindof just natural to see them! nice work guys, they do make the servers a bit more interesting, something to read when my team is getting owned!!!

There have been a lot of DoD/TF2 updates (and another early this morning) which may be causing the lag you experienced. The posters themselves will cause no more stress to your system than the in game sprays. :)

A suggestion: Maybe also have posters with help for noobs like me with info, how to change crosshairscale, rate, cl_cmdrate, etc or a simple link to a ukcs forum post with these steps. I think a lot of people stop play/ or even start cheat when they cant match pros like Lucky and Lockwyn :D And never even get close :(

Example: You never hit anyone? Well go UKCS.net and find out how!!

The UKCS forums is massive and not always easy to find information you would like for a first timer :D

While I think it's a clever idea, the way that it has been implemented currently looks a bit slapdash, and feels rather intrusive. Many of the posters are too large in my opinion. The advert for the christmas event was useful information for all players, so something like that was good. However, I don't want to be greeted with giant posters advertising UKCS's Twitter or Facebook or whatever whenever I turn a corner. I rather like being able to enjoy the map aesthetic in the way that the map designer intended - especially since a huge BLUE poster in Red territory looks REALLY out of place.

Other thing is that a lot of the posters have been placed in locations where a lot of people like to put sprays. Obviously, this is exactly WHY they've been located there; people like to place their spray where people will see it. I just think that the current quantity and sizing is such that they're too intrusive.

Reiterating, we are currently tweaking the system- we know that on some maps the density of posters is too high and we are working on fixing that. :)

Screenshots and map names will also help us to speed up the process. :)

Thank you, we will see what we can do. :)

The UKCS logo has been removed from the rotation temporarily, until we can find a more fitting variation of it. :)

If seen on some servers such as the Team fortress 2 division and the CS:S Division somtimes have themed posters for either anti-cheating or posters stating to be nice to other players, or even listing events, is there any themed posters for the DoD:S side of the community :P feel left out :)

Although the ordinary posters do look absoulutley fantastic Very big well done to the team and admins that worked on them...

We do have some DoD themed posters that I had neglected to put up- thank you for the reminder!

We would love to have more posters themed for specific games (CSS, DoD, TF2), so if you have any suggestions please post in this thread. This is so we can have a larger library of posters we can rotate through. :)

Koth_nucleus has too many imo, there were 2 very close to each other out of spawn and one or two in spawn. Didn't have a chance to go to the sides, though
funkymp: aww imperium sounds so cute for a cold-blooded killer
ev.ca††ish-Jesper: :( I hate you Imperium
Salva: IMP YOU GIT
Safire: Imp sounds so small and cute <3 bet he hates that
An Orange: Imperium is just too good

In response to TìMϦl4: Imperium is always funny. :3

found one I think needs moving. Dustbowl stage 2 near red spawn.

with HDR and full on all graphics its like looking at the sun. maybe move it to the path underneath that building or possible to the passage left or right so its not directly facing the "sun"

We think the issue is with the poster itself- it's slightly too light and is blooming as a result. (Note, the poster is designed wonderfully- it just doesn't get on with the HDR process). :)

I've exchanged it with a darker version, so we can see if that helps. :)
