I'm designing a server around the idea that map authors need feedback! They need to know what the TF2 community thinks of their hard work. I've been coding sourcemod plugins to help provide active feedback and critique without planned events or limited player pools. The Server: Understand this is a test for me just as much as it is for the map authors. Initially the server will have: 18 Slots US Based Custom only map rotation Stats provided by HLStatsX CE End of the round map rating* Backend map statistics** In-game feedback system*** Web site for easy viewing End of the round map rating: At the end of every game round a menu is randomly chosen for all connected clients, the menu prompts the client to rate the maps, game flow, balance, detail, optimization, and style. The answers are stored into the server's database, and will be shown on the website that's dedicated for map critique. Pictured: In game menus Map Statistics: The server will also keep track of the times a map has been played, total playtime, and how many times the map has been RTV'd. All the statistics will be viewable on the website. In game feedback: To help provide accurate feedback to map authors, at anytime a client can simply type a chat message starting with '#' and the rest of the message will be sent to the database, and viewable on the website. Example: #This map is fantastic! The website: Currently in early development. ----- If you would like your map to run on the servers initial test, please post a link to it on the tf2map's Map Database with a summary of the map, and it's current development stage. I also recommend the map say who the author is at round start. If you would like to help or contribute to the project, please reach me via this thread or the tf2 maps forums, if you have any ideas, feel free to post! I plan to try and get a basic version up soon, and plan to add more features depending on how the community receives it. Here's looking towards better tf2 custom maps .
