    its not liek its a bad map its just horrible flawed and its plr properties needs to be reworked. earlier the cart got stuck. and right now 11:35 PST the timer ran out on a the 2nd round. now its the thrid round and theres no cart and no ADMIN. its not the admins fault tho but if there was one this could be sum what tolerable. the admin could change the map. liek earlier! the carts got stuck on a track intersection. admin had to restart the map. this map is NOT playable and should be taken off the rotation/contest. im not hating on this map (although its not my favorite it has good custom content but could have better design).

    ps admin come in and change map plz!

    Please work on your grammar. Nothing makes me more frustrated when you don't use the English language.

    I was their when this happened, in the first stage both carts got stuck in the middle of the round. We had to wait for the timer to count down so that we can move on. The second stage nobody finished moving the carts to the points because the timer had ran out. This caused red team to win because they had advanced their cart futher then blu.

    When it came to the last round boths carts from the second level never tranfered over to the last part of the map. Since there is no timer for the final round, there was nothing that could be done to finish or change maps. This turned the server into a DeathMatch Payload for about and hour (Yes I stayed that long) Finally someone decided to crash the server so that we can continue playing.

    About most of the plr maps have issues, hell Pipeline is one of them.

    Drop in chat next time this happens, you're very likely to find an admin there.

    instead of dumping some maps, i´d rather see them moved to the end of the rotation, so they don´t crash the server and later/working maps don´t get played because the server rebooted, that way they´d still get playtime, but wouldn´t pull down working entries

    There's usually an admin in the Steam chat - just a tip for future server/map errors. Just go to the steam group, enter the chat and tell an admin about the problem, and he'll probably come right over and fix it.

    I have, reluctantly, removed two of the crossover problematic maps from the cycle. They only goofed up occasionally, so they were fine in the past when it was our community playing and someone was always there to fix it. But now we got blog'd and our servers are full of random people all the time.

    We are having a contest rotation atm where all the contest maps are played. Animus is one off them. While Ive been hard at work along with Boojum trying to fix the problem where the cart gets stuck and it should be fixed in the next version.

    Once the voting is over, the server should probably get all the most recent versions of the maps and an rtv mod. I'm guessing they'll be popular for a little while now with the mention on the blog.

    I wanted to get in on the action last night, but yup . . . servers full up for hours. Pretty cool on the blog though. Congrats to all of the contest folks!

    I've reinstated Cornfield and Animus into the cycle. I was able to hotfix them server-side so they won't bug out. Highwind and Rollout however still remain out of cycle due to issues I can't fix.

    Awe...I like rollout. It was actually pretty fun, but flawed, so Im glad it got removed. What was the issue with Highwind? It was fun, but the scoring didnt work, but it didnt crash...

    Highwind had the bad habit of crashing the server when the time ran out. Server rebooted and the rotation started again with the first.

    thanks for not getting flaming me because i know how hard it is to map and good job with all ur custom content. i was browsing and saw u were a sponser i was praying there wouldnt be a flame fest. as for the bad grammar, i was in the map and didnt want to get kicked out and the server needed an admin asap to change the map. i really enjoy playing community maps and seeing different ideas and how to use that into my own map.

    @Fearlezz i hope you got those bugs fixed so we can fully play your map and enjoy it as much as we can! really like the custom content!

    Highwind has no map-end function, and when I try using the server setting to override and end the map, it causes a crash.

    Rollout just plain crashes because it has too many entities.

    Quite clearly he should have learned English, as nothing gets me more frustrated than when someone else has a different language. Or culture. Or dresses slightly different.

    I don't think that there's much wrong with animus, personally, it just that like all plr maps, the entities tend to bug out from time to time.[/On topic]

    I've had to remove Animus again due to another bug. I probably won't be able to hotfix this.

    Nothing seems wrong for me, its just gameplay goes really fast
