  Automatic Map Downloads Test    
Posted By Pvt_John -  
We have a new feature on the Annex server. It is setup to automatically download the custom maps in the mapcycle to anyone who does not already have them.

There are plans afoot to try this out on Shotgun Madness as well. Some of the SM Enforcers have volunteered to do the work necessary to get this running, and we are hoping to have this ready in the next couple days.

{GL} Showtime and [I&S] Ira Hayes had suggested this previously and I had discounted it as we didn't have the bandwidth to implement it. Now we do, and I think their idea is worth trying out.

I have made up a special mapcycle for the Annex that alternates between standard and custom maps. I am trying to make the Annex a good place for one or two of our regulars to go when the DoD servers are empty. The standard map should draw in a few SunLit newbies, given of course that someone is there to "seed" the server. When the map changes, the new players should stick around because they'll have the map.

Note that it is only setup for the custom maps in the current mapcycle. If you vote in some custom map that's not in the mapcycle, you'll likely lose any new players on the server at the time.

My hope is this will draw some new players to our community. Maybe they'll see some cool maps they've never played before, see the great group of people and come back again.

So, if you're looking for a game and no one is around, try heading to the Annex and vote in a standard map if one is not already playing. Read on to see the actual maps on the list.
Here is the mapcycle I've put up there, in case anyone is curious:
