    Yes. My server community keeps voting "Extend Map" over and over. Great fun. Thank you Dr. Spud for adding a whole new dimension to our TF2 lives.

    Greatest joke map ever?

    [serious feedback]

    Some floodlights near the point would really help in distinguishing team colours.
    Not much of an issue though IMO, this map is so much fun as it is anyway.

    I have yet to play this map, but I already know it is the best map ever created, and possibly the best map that will ever exist for any FPS.

    Also, Valve, make it official.

    Also, put it in Left 4 Dead 2, and Left 4 Dead 1 for good measure!

    I've heard Spud's been working on a brand new competitive map for all you pros out there.

    Things like extra floodlights to help visibility are good ideas. I'm just not planning on making another version of lolcano. I think it's good enough as-is, and most server owners won't care to upload new versions just for a joke map.

    the unique lighting of the map adds to its character

    Dr. Spud, this map is fantastic. Just played it then and I actually did LOL when all the LOLs went airborne like dolphins in Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy :3 Absolutely brilliant! Just a shame it's a joke map because I can't see valve putting it in release :(

    While I know you made this as a joke map, when we did a map test, it was very well recieved. We ended up putting it on our rotation and it's been there for the past few weeks. Most people have commented on it being their favorite custom koth map even. The main two complaints we get are:
    1. Sometimes hard to see which team a player is on due to the red glow
    2. The sound clips get old after a little while

    I know you don't plan on making a new version, but just tossing this to you. Great job on the map!

    Maybe I'll just make a koth_volcano. I mean, I thought the layout to lolcano was okay. But people are playing it way more than I thought they would, so I guess it wouldn't hurt to make a de-trololo'd version.

    I think the trolo is half the fun, but whatever.

    Yeah, we rather dig the trolol.

    Although, I've been keeping track of wins via stats, and I think the lighting is definitely skewing things towards Red. (They've won 73% of the time, out of around 60 rounds.)

    If you did, you'd have to fix the lighting first and foremost — like move the light_environment to be pointing straight down into the volcano or something. It's tolerable now since it's not supposed to be a serious map.

    I'd like to see a serious business version of this map, it does actually play really well as well as being lulz worthy.

    Statistics don't lie, but I can't figure out how that would make sense. RED can tell the two colors apart, but BLU can't? :blink:

    Personally I would be a little disappointed at this reversal of sentiment:
    ... but who knows, a srs version might become even more popular.

    Since the engy update this map seems to crash the servers. I did a few runs on ukcs and each time it crashed (a few minutes in the round). The situation was 32 player instant respawn though so it might be related to that (dynamics limit).

    the map needs a check.
