Unfortunately I started a medieval mode dedicated server

    PenPen here after an almost half-year hiatus, and fortunately I won't be making hideous map ideas (yet) and force you all to play on gamedays. :p

    Anyway, I started a server which had medieval mode on 24/7. Currently aside from cp_degrootkeep, I also added a few other smaller Valve maps (mostly koth and cp_gorge, ctf_turbine). But the map cycle is pretty darn short, actually.

    So yes, it's a hideous server idea that I thought would be interesting. But I'm not going to talk about my lack of intelligence, I'd like any mapmakers to suggest putting their maps on my server.

    While pretty much any map type would be welcome, I'd very much prefer smaller maps or koth maps. I don't know how payload (race) maps would fare in medieval mode, so as long as each stage or the map isn't really big, I'd be more than willing to give it a try. I would also prefer that it's at beta stage or farther developed.

    Also you don't need to hard-code the medieval mode for the map. I already did it for the server, so no need to worry about that, unless you intended the map to be like cp_degrootkeep which does the mode changing thingy itself.

    Obviously I'd welcome y'all to join the server to get your meds on, but I don't think it's fair to put the link up (that'd be blatant advertising), I think it's better off if you check out my Steam profile and get the address from there.

    Regardless, a good day to you all, and hopefully we'll get to try something medievally...new? :O

    How does egyptain medieval sound?

    Courtyard, a medium sized, egypt themed, koth map...been kinda dead for a while but near enough finished. I would appreciate some playing/testing but I'm not really looking for feedback on it anymore. (Plus it's not really the best gamemode to get feedback for gameplay :p)

    Oh, and welcome back!

    Steam community doesn't load for me (some strange -101 error) any chance you could post/pm the ip?

    Been running medieval server since the mode came out. Oddly enough, it's been full every single day with just cp_degrootkeep and recently added another map cp_redford_b5, which needs balancing but it's still variation to the cycle. This game needs more actual medieval maps, not cvar that can turn on and off on every map.

    Yeah, here it is: 98.143.159.77:27015 (contradicting myself)
    Your map isn't up there though, yet. I am still waiting for the server redirect to set up, which is taking longer than I expected.

    And I'd love to see more medieval servers around as well, ics. And I will check out cp_redford as well!

    This looks nice! But I think I see pretty much every gametype there is in your zip file. I will at least give the koth version a whirl.

    Theme doesn't matter. I'm just getting maps for the gamemode.

    So I updated the server with the custom maps you guys suggested and provided, and a file redirect was set up. All should be good now, except nobody's there.

    Also J4CK8 the Courtyard link in the forums is a 404...I did get it off GameBanana though!

    Sorry, it's been a while, I must've deleted it from dropbox. I can reupload if you'd prefer, but I don't suppose it would make a difference.

    Well it's just a note, I got it off GameBanana yesterday. So don't worry about it.
