    Is there a server command to simply force a switch to the next map in rotation?

    As in lets say the rotation is:
    Map1.bsp
    Map2.bsp
    Map3.bsp

    Currently the server is playing Map2.bsp but people are getting bored, rather than type out whatever command, "Command Map3.bsp" is there a simple "command" that tells it to end the current map?

    I think he means automatically move to the next map in the set rotation.

    I don't use a static rotation so I couldn't tell you. Off the top of my head there aren't any automatic ways to poll the mapcycle for the next map and go to it.

    It's possible that Beetlesmod or one of the major admin packages can do it but I've used Sourcemod and Beetles extensively and don't know of a command like that myself. Personally I just let the players votemap their way around if they don't like the current map, and keep the list of maps they can vote to up to date as possible. (That's using Beetles)

    I was thinking about this more for the game days where we want to keep the rotation stable.

    I forget the command. I'll post a full command list when I get home, but I don't have it here at work.

    One way to look for it is login as admin and do 'find <query>' where query is what you are interested in.
