Well the idea sounded wild to me, being able to put such a system in. So if it becomes workable great! But if not we shouldn't be too upset, that does sound difficult.

dedwinia suggestions--multiple fish bowls

Postby tiro » Sat May 23, 2009 5:20 am

Hi,

I think it would be great to have one dedicated CTS fishbowl, one dedicated DOM fishbowl, and one dedicated KOTH fishbowl. All the 'serious' modes. Perhaps these can be ranked (and with basic crates and not extra many crates). This would help the problem of not having enough players around. If we can't fill a 4 player map, often we can get 3.

3/4 player CTS are really popular on the servers but sometimes there isn't a server available. Or there's a stupid map like Maze of Despair.

Also, it would be nice to enable the team mode option if all players agree. It seems like some servers allow it, some don't.

Honestly, there are already a lot of dedicated servers on the list. People have, in the past, complained that such a large number of empty servers looks bad. I don't think that adding more servers into the mix is going to make that any better.

dedwinia suggestions--multiple fish bowls

Postby tiro » Sat May 23, 2009 5:55 pm

To clarify, my suggestion is to replace some of the current servers with these flex servers (that switch maps based on the number of users).

It certainly wouldn't hurt if NeoThermic's mode specific servers would switch over to the flexible map system, or if some of them disappeared. There's really too many servers. It's vastly unsupported, however. Clients just don't like on the fly map changes.

Also, note that the defining property of Fish Bowl is not that, it's the extra many full crates :) That had me confused when you were asking for more of those without that.

About coop mode: it's turned on randomly. Player votes have been discussed before and are a difficult topic.

The topic of server reducing has been brought up several times and I don't think NeoThermic is willing limit the number of his servers.

I really like Tiro's suggestion. Though it's true that on the fly map changes can be a little confusing at first, it makes it significantly easier to find the maximum number of available players for a desired mode. Too many times I have joined a 4p CTS queue and sat with 2 other players, only to have them leave because they don't want to wait any longer and no one wants to play the CPU - being able to start a 3p CTS game on the spot would have been a far preferable option. (the same goes for 2 players waiting for a 3rd player)

I don't want to rehash the whole too many servers debate, but personally as soon as the number of dedicated servers starts declining I'm going to have very little inclination to play. The harder it is for me to find a ranked game in a mode and map that I enjoy, the less likely I am to play. :cry:

also: self-bump on the /rematch feature. passwords would be icing but totally unnecessary, just let us /rematch after a good game on a fun map, pleeease :D

What language is that? I seem to recognize a few words, but most of the vocabulary is unfamiliar to me. Ditto the syntax. Maybe it is some kind of German?

I'd say his cat walked over his keyboard, but there's too many spaces.

teen: this is, by the sound of it, a darwinia modding related question. Ask it in the darwinia forum, not here. And ask it properly, giving all the info you have, and using PROPER WORDS. 'does not work' is not enough info.

I have been sent to this thread to request information on dedicated servers by Tom.K

I'm interested in a dedicated client to set up on one of my servers (as head of my Uni's gaming society with 600+ members) I am interested in getting one set up at our uni and getting more people interested in the game and thus buying it?

The plan was to publicly release this once the next big patch hit, which never happened. Guess it doesn't hurt to extend the testers group a bit, I'll send you the access data via PM.

I would really like to have a copy of the dedicated server, so that I can set one up. currently there are no servers at all in the game, and since users have to setup port forwarding, and then wait for go knows how long for anyone to join their server nobody every plays. anyways I have searched and searched and all that I found was the server for deathcon and not one for multiwinia.. can someone please send me the dedicated server for multiwinia? I just got the game, as I suspect a lot of people will be doing since they are bundling it with prison architect, and it is sad that you cant even really play it as it was meant to be played since there are no dedicated servers. please?

thanks.
