***WPPC 3.0 Server 100% Done***
« Thread started on: Apr 28th, 2010, 12:58am »
Made a NEW thread because old thread was just me complaining and being lost.
Finished it all and found some mistakes and typos. (There is no SnowJobCTF) All map types are in.
The only thing that ISN'T in (which no one played anyway) are the DARK maps. Which can be adjusted by me (if I'm there) anytime. (if enough people ask for certain maps at night, I'll add them in) I got the hard part over with now. Now all that is left is years of small customizations put in while playing. And those are best left to put in as things like "Free Pants" actually happen in the server. This new server seems more stable than the last one and before I didn't even have all the skins set to CAMO (your welcome, NH) in most maps. Nothing worse than playing in broad daylight in the snow and standing tall on a mountain top wearing shiny BLUE/RED paint. All that is fixed now for EVERY map.
The 4 dodgeball maps are Coliseum/Factory/Frostbite/GatorBait. (Again, I'll add more as more people request them) As an added bonus. When the DBALL map pops up, direct peoples attention to the RULES tab on the upper right. It will now give the rules of Dodgeball.
Things I know people will gripe at: -list maps. It will display a HUGE FREAKING LIST. But, if you use common sense, you will never have to even USE "-list maps" All map NAMES you should know, and if you can just remember to add these simple suffixes and what they mean - -vote map OR if your an admin -mission mapnameA = Attrition (all maps) mapnameTA = Team Attrition (just about all maps) mapnameSTB = Steal the Beacon (few maps) mapnameCTF = Capture the freaking Flag (few maps) mapnameKOTH = King of the Hill mapnameTKOTH = Team King of the Hill mapnameDBALL = Dodgeball (4 maps) snowjobESCORT = Escort (only 1 map)
Got it? Learn it, live it, love it.
Post in this thread about bugs and glitches you may find.
Although I am done with the server, that doesn't mean it doesn't have a glitch or bug. Be vocal. Let me know and tell me what happened so I can fix it. This isn't just my server, it belongs to you guys too.
In the next few days I plan to have a "-CTF MAPS" Command to replace the "-list maps" But none of this is even needed if you guys just learn the map names and how to get what you want. I made it as easy as I could....I think..

Pretty much a success tonight. Thanks everyone!
Got off to a rocky start... The server wouldn't let anyone in! (same problem as before.. it is the router) Was fixed with a strange step though... Apparently the server no longer needs DX PORT to run! I had it up and no one could get in turned it off... Boom.. worked fine. Too bad it took me 35 minutes to figure that out... Once the games started all seemed to work great! DBALL loaded fine and everyone enjoyed the new server.. with the exception of JC Skeletor but we think that problem is not related. Sorry bro.. Kills me to see ya suffer..
All was well until our internet (not the server) DIED for 5 minutes at the launch of a CTF map. I was pumped for that game too! GRRRR Rematch... Sunday.. srsly.
