Redirect or move players mod?

Post by Pileyrei »

Our most popular server (Deck 16 only all weps) shuts down on the 21 May.

I've sourced a new server and asked players to use the new IP. I've also set server adds to spam the new server info every 10 seconds
and added the option to say !newserver which takes you straight to it.

SO far the take up has been good.

I was wondering if there was a mod you could install that would automatically redirect or move players to another server?
In other words, they join the old server, a message says taking you to new server or similar and the players end up on the new server.

Is this possible?

Or even making a cubed map with new address written on a wall and... some "teleporter" to new URL ?

Edit:
And this might do the same thing ?

That looks interesting!
There doesn't seem to be an ini or configuration instructions for it though?

Good idea with cube and portal. I could actually just edit the map and add a new area for that. But time is short so I will have to see about this option.....
I remember the Truff servers having a portal you could enter with all of the servers listed through portals and a clever sign showing how many players currently on them.

Also, I have used STW and advertised....players just have to say !newserver and it takes them there.

Thanks for the ideas though.
