Do you want to say something about UT99.org?

AMC 2018 Map-Pack Server with map-cycle only? *No map-vote.

Postby R3plicant » Sun Dec 30, 2018 3:38 am

Since the AMC competition has finished for another year, (good work all involved!), will there be an AMC 2018 map-pack server with map-cycle only? By that I mean a server with no map-vote but one which caters to all the game types,.. That's doable,. right?

It'd be good to know what the next step/stage might be, if there is indeed any more to come. :) One thing that I feel is important to say here is that some maps have in-built mutators, (ok I know MY map does, (a fabulous spectator cam teleporter mutator by Higor), I'm not sure about the others, speak up if they do), so the server will need to be carefully configured to allow all the maps to run as they were designed to if a server is going to be set up at all.

I'd love to see a server specifically for the 2018 AMC maps, but,. while I say that, I can't imagine there are that many players who'd play often enough to make it a worthwhile investment,. or am I woefully mistaken? Would players add the server to their favourites and play on it regularly? Who'd finance it? I can't, I'm living on <£2k p.a.

That's about all I can think of at the moment. :) Ok, so, leave a comment if you have anything to add. :tu:

There was long ago a discussion about a UT99.org gaming server.
But as you can see, it didn't happen.

A UT99.org gameserver can succeed, only when it gets the right attention.
This might just be the thing to get publics going on again :)

I would love hosting one.
Just got new server hardware toys for at home :)

:) Nice! :)

If all my years of experience with UT99 gamers and servers has taught me anything, it's that new players who get their asses handed to them on a plate almost never return to the game; that's LOTS of gamers unnecessarily lost - monitored newbie servers are essential if new players are to feel happy in a place where they can freely learn how to play and thus get their enjoyment from it. With some guidance, support and help from more advanced players, they can become useful, passionate, long-standing and committed gamers in the UT99 game community.

I'd be happy to monitor such a server if it were set up, though I concede, I'm not a UT99 server admin specialist by any stretch of the imagination, but I could kick players (if needs be) if they're too good or just dominating etc or I could just suggest they join a server for semi-skilled or skilled/seasoned players.

iSenSe, if you're happy to host 1 or 2 servers (perhaps a newbie one and also a regular one) for the AMC 2018 maps and maybe set up a small PayPal.me link to help toward the maintenance of it, I'll be glad to monitor the newbie server for flair-play, offering skill advice etc etc. :)

Do we have any other volunteers to help with this? Server admins, server monitors, mentors perhaps, video content makers for weekly YouTube content, (no harm in pumping out content each week, right? Unreal editor content perhaps and help increase the player/map count somewhat, maybe), as well as perhaps YouTube or Twitch live streams of server games for a few hours every couple of days perhaps.

Let the world know more about new maps, short videos featuring great game-play footage of new players learning their craft with the odd small team tournament (for newbies) competition now and then too and of course to let others know about the still-played (and much-loved) UT99 game as a whole. :)

I agree with you, but don't you think 1 server is enough?
Too much servers already, and alot spreaded discord servers and such.

iam sure when a UT99.org gameserver is up, with the AMC map pack on it, the hardcore crowd from here will vote those maps :)
Centralisation is the key a bit here i assume.
Get as most players on 1 server is hard enough.

1 main UT99.org gameserver with most played mods/packs.
And maybe a test/dev server once enough devs are there ;)
