    That is dead or is very inactive? Do you want more people on your server? Are you willing it allow me to have creative control of your server?

    If so, post in this thread.

    I've been wanting to get myself a server for a long time, but I currently lack the funds. While I do have admin on one server I lack creative control over it.

    My Plan:

    A custom map server with a competitive spin on it:

    8v8
    no crits and damage spread
    class limits
    sandman disabled
    mapvote at end of round
    late beta (highly finished) custom maps that are balanced and lend to a appease to the competitive crowd. (ex. cp_Yukon, cp_follower, cp_waste, cp_ greenvalley, cp_furnace)
    Extended playtime events where the map will run for 1 hour and 15 minutes

    This will make the server individual and unique from all other servers and it's unquieness is what will make people come and play here.

    The point of this server will not be to provide early alpha makers maptesting, but showcase the best custom maps out there to the TF2 community. So this server will be run to the benefit of the player, not the mapper.

    What you'll be getting from me:

    My time ~ I plan to set the server up and admin it myself
    My steam groups ~ I have direct access to 450 people at the tip of my fingers. So when I make a steam event people will join.

    What you need to do:

    Allow me to have FTP and Rcon admin and I promise I will devote my full energies into populating your server and making it a place were people will come play and come back the next day and the next and the next so that they will have to use auto-connect to get in.

    So that's the plan. You have a server that you wish you had more people in. So you graciously provide admin status to me and I will make it a server that is populated and used.



    So if you want in, send me a PM, post in this thread, or hit me up on steam. Steam id: b_Mar_d

    heh, your timing is a bit off
    say 3 months back I knew of at least 3 people that might have very well took you up on this
    with the reduction of slots and loss of crits and damage spread being the only likely objection...

    but yeah...most of the people I know that had servers have got rid of them <_<

    Well 3 months ago... I did nothing

    About 3 weeks ago I got a server, but 0 creative control. I only got sourcemod admin. :( While it's a great server for maptest's I didn't get to throw up a rotation of my choice. So I'm just going to be using it for weekly extend playtime maptests once finals are over.

    I'm actually in the process of starting 3 e-frag's with my friend, they should be set up over the next few days. If all goes well, we should all be set up within a week.

    I'll give you direct access to the FTP and rcon (you could just change the rcon settings with the FTP anyways :|)

    So it won't be a dead server, it will be a new server :D Hope that's ok..

    Ok let me translate for you :)

    I was going to offer my empty server to you but you seem to already have an offer from Anon. So in a joking way that was not funny I was offering you another server to run if interested, but instead of 8v8 it could be 13v13 since I own a 26 player TF2 server...

    BTW, how do you guys get the embedded Steam tag to show up in the top right corner of your posts?

    Thank you :)

    I was actually interested to know if you coded that in or it's part of the forum package. SMF doesn't have anything like that that works...well.
