    My clan was hard core Halo for 3+ years. Within 2 weeks of the debut of TF2, 75% of us had already made the switch - that's how impressed we were with it.

    At the start, my only criticism was the lack of maps beyond the original. Little did I know that an entire community of map makers was busy behind the scenes to create some very astounding works, rivaling the quality of the originals.

    My compliments to the map makers - you have our thanks.

    I've yet to release anything but i know that your support is wonderful, oddly enough i get a ton of "why are you wasting your time" *shrug*

    Do you guys have a clan server? custom rotation?

    Yes, we do. Here's our info: [​IMG]

    Adding custom maps has been the biggest headache you can possibly imagine for someone without experience. I think the map makers would see far more downloads if some quality info was available that covers all the nooks and crannies of how to download, change the zip format, upload, add the name to the rotation .txt file, the map .txt file, etc., etc.

    We use Gameservers for our hosting and TF2 is so new that tech support from Gameservers is somewhat of a joke. So we've had to do a lot of leg work, forum searching, Googling and the like to find out the hows and whys.

    I'm trying to document the process as I go but it's rather tedious. BUT, the custom maps are appreciated, nonetheless.

    I shout at maps too because some of them get place on server while other maps that are amazing dont get played. Sorry but why should dm_hans get 24/7 server etc...?

    I wish a world where only good custom maps get played and new mappers understand that their "hey i created my first room"-map is not the best map ever :D

    Hey there. Not only am I a map maker, a competitive clan leader, 22 year old father, and self employed web designer, but I am also starting up a strictly source based server hosting company.

    I rented my clans first server for TF2 in October from MyIS and had nothing but horrible service, no help on setting things up, would wait 1-2 days after every TF2 update for them to update the server, etc.

    I am starting a hosting company dedicated to mainly TF2 based servers and offering all of my knowledge and help free of charge. I will gladly install admin mods (mainly sourcemod as it is the best made in terms of coding and what not), setup server variables, and anything else you can dream of. If you guys are interested please shoot me a message.

    I was just so sick of these game server providers that would charge me for a 100 tick server when the TF2 game caps at 66 tick, or make me wait days with no help whatsoever. I will have my site up in a few days, as I am still getting my own servers and some of the newly hosted ones running with mods and what not.
