    many people don't download the custom maps because they dont browse the forums, but if theire was on inf homepage a link to a community EAS map pack each 2 month/ month , many more would.

    i just bring the question.is inf team agree with that already?

    realmaps did this with the monthly mappack, if something like this gets done again getting the news and links up at the inf homepage shouln't be the problem. but the map sites are lacking reviewers etc atm, until this has changed i don't consider such a mappack something we will see soon.

    Realmaps seems to be dead, but the Combatmaps guys are pretty fast when it comes to providing downloads for the latest maps. I like the idea behind a bi-monthly mappack, but I fear that might also mean that new maps get only added to servers every two months, even when the maps have already been released for weeks.

    thats a drawback but its either every two month or either you have 75% of the inf players that dont have the custom maps..

    Alternative now is that everytime a custom map, even if only fixed DS or DS at all, you lose 50-80% of the players on the server. Happens all the time on our server. People do not even have DS-Mappack and many gaming site did not provide that DL at all...

    If you guys could coordinate this w/ a review site like Combatmaps it's a simple matter to just put the news in the community section of the INF main page. Once that's back up of course. ;)

    I like this idea, but I can not do it, I am still with 1GB a month (this time 1,41 GB, expensive, expensive ... arg :( ).
    But I think Cleeus has it better and also Jogi can transfere more (and I still have a good [lame] exuse *evilgrin* :D ).
    Yes fist is right, we're searching people who are willing to help and there aren't many actually.
    I hope this idea comes true, because I think it will make it easier for all.

    Btw. I wish you all a good new year! :)

    on an sidenote: i realy wanted to apply to your request but as a maper i am to biased for reviews (it was the community feedback that brought me semi back to inf mapping after all) and as the person i am im just unable to du a useable tutorial - and belive me, i realy tried to get a nice tutorial done for combatmaps. considering my experiences with tbuildt i can only suggest to anybody who is unshure but willing to join the combatmaps team to do exactly this, i for one enjoyed working within a real team.

    however i have got unlimited upload volume as well as the possibility to use access a broadband connection, and i am more then willing to help...



    desweiteren wünsche ich einen guten rutsch ins neue jahr für all euch, die ihr eure zeit der weiteren verbesserung dieses unseres lieblingsmods, seiner wahrnehmung seitens der spieler alswie außenstehender widmet und somit die gemeinschaft bereichert. auf das die gegenwärtig offensichtliche kreativität auch weiterhin gewährleistet bleibt und das morgenliche erwachen eurerseits weniger unerfreulich zu ewarten ist wie das meinereiner.

    (imo the only way for me to say this was in my native language, and as everybody here knows what i said i don't have to care to translate it. consider this my special appreciation to the inf mod community)

    If you need people to upload files to the server contact me, I'm happy to do it. and 1GB/Month?! Omg, I usually transfer 4 times that a day ...

    And about that bi-monthly map pack: I guess it would be nice atleast for new players who join the community to get the latest maps easy. But I dont think it will slow down the rate the maps are added to game servers. Atleast I tend to download each map separately and test it, if its good enough it gets to the list.
