    Just got a sever and I'm wanting to run custom maps. I currently have a few but was wondering what other maps i can add so i can have a good custom server. My server is at 68.232.163.46:27015.

    I'm open to any suggestions and willing to upload any good map! :D

    TY

    If you're a new server, it may be a good idea to stick to ones with a small filesize. Maps with large filesize will kill a server without any regulars to support it.

    These are just guidelines, but our server considers a small map to be under 40MB, uncompressed. These maps have no problem download-wise.

    We consider maps over 60MB uncompressed to be very risky, as they often lead to many disconnects by players.

    If you need a place to start, you can use my map ratings as a good indication of what maps are good/bad.

    File Size was never a problem for me and we don't get many disconnects, but I had a user base before I started my server and now have a community of regulars.
