View Full Version : Default Map After Players Leave

I've read about the random map option but is there a default map option or could a gameconfig be created just so that it designates a default map when all players leave?

This is due to the sheer number of maps (on my server) to choose from when players leave and the fact that the map chosen by MapVote (at random) may not be a popular map. This causes players who don't have the map not to bother joining the server (thus downloading the map) and then choosing the map they want to play.

Ideally, I'd like to designate a map rotation (10 popular maps) which MapVote reverts to if [#1] All Players Leave or [#2] None of the Players vote on a map (vote time runs out while players are chitchatting). And still have the ability to vote for any of the maps designated under the gametype (ie CTF) in the maps directory (100 maps). Or another option would be if MapVote defaulted to the #1 popular map (based upon MapVote History).

No, there is not a default map options.

Good idea tho. I'll add it to the list.
