Heya Infiltration server admins.. Is it possible to add a few more maps to the rotation? I have played a few that seemed pretty cool with bots (Trenched, 1940?, etc). Also, is it possible to play "assault" maps on a "team deathmatch" server? Either way, keep up the good work!

Our staff is currently discussing the next map packs with those most execellent map gurus over at Real Maps (http://www.planetunreal.com/realmaps). We all agree that we need to get some more maps into the rotation, including both Assault and DM. We have a tentative plan to release a pack soon with several new DM maps and at least one Assault map ( Bastard'O made it. Hint...hint /infopop/emoticons\icon_wink.gif )

The problem that we run into is that it is very difficult to find maps that work in the pack. Real Maps (http://www.planetunreal.com/realmaps) has set pretty stringent requirements for putting maps into the map packs. This is designed to make sure that you only see the best of the best on the servers. It is sometimes tough to find maps of the right size, with enough realism, and good playability (and CoffeeCan would add 'enough cover') to make them suitable for a map pack. Don't fret, however, they are coming. In the end, I would like to see approximately 20-30 maps in the rotation. We at SG Servers have made the committment, however, to stick with the Official Map pack maps and Official Infiltration Maps only and we are holding to that. In the end, we beleive that is the best for the Infiltration Community.

Be patient. More packs will come. /infopop/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

We are working on getting a new map pack out next week, with several more DM maps as well as Bastard'O's AS-Terrain map.

The larger issue is that there are very few maps that can handle up to teams of 8 or more, are well done AND have a decent poly count. Believe me we are always looking, and the ones that we have now reflect what is out there. Understand that we also have to be inclusive to the entire community, which means selecting maps that run at a reasonable rate on slower machines. I agree that we have stringent requirements for what we select, but anything else would be both a diservice to INF and the larger community in general; but trust me, we are committed to the community and want to make the online playing as fun as possible.
Thanks for your thoughts

I agree with ya wholeheartedly, CC. The requirements you guys have set have led to the terrific map packs we have out so far. Without you and your map packs no telling how screwed up all our servers would be. /infopop/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

I have mentioned it before to Real Maps,..there is one large map by Bastard'O that I like very much, that has not been reviewed...AS-Bridge Too Far...
It could easily handle teams of 8 or more and is great fun to play..if one of the reviewers would play it enough to learn its "ins & outs", they would probably want it in a map pack...

It can be found at http://www.planetunreal.com/realworld/wip.html

Now I'll shut up about it!

Why not add the preview version of Hillbase to a server???? Its an awsome map that would rock with 24-32 players please consider it!!! /infopop/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif /infopop/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif /infopop/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif /infopop/emoticons/icon_smile.gif /infopop/emoticons/icon_smile.gif /infopop/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

I can only speak for SG Servers, but we will not run any preview or BETA maps on our servers. We will run only 'Official' maps directly from the Infiltration team or the Inf map packs.

When Hillbase is released, I am sure RealMaps will take a look at it.

Send me your opinions on the maps that you'd like to see out there. I'm gonna keep track and let Shan, Real Maps and the Infil team know the tallys. For the best performance on both server and client ends it's imperitive that we make good use of the Map Packs! They save us all a lot of headaches in lower ping time when used.
I'll try hard to reply to all the opinions I get and let you know where things are going. - as much as I can /infopop/emoticons/icon_smile.gif
