    I'd like each person (that visit's this thread) - to tell me their top 2 choices for custom maps that they would like to see in rotation on The Roost (208.7.42.3).

    I already have (on server):

    Inoxx Map pack
    Bonus Pack 4

    Baranco
    Bollwerk105
    Conquest
    Glacier][
    Horus
    Kilgore
    LocustWind
    Lucius
    McSwartly][(ver2)
    Noce
    Nokeep
    OldSkool
    ProjectX
    Ranel
    SkaarjOutpost (is that part of a bonus pack?)
    Terra
    ThornsV2
    TNCTF40
    TwinValley2


    You can choose from these or any new ones. Serious suggestions only.

    Thanks,

    SkaarjOutpost is not part of any bonuspack.

    I like:
    CTF-ArcticOutpost (it's part of some WinterMappack)
    CTF-NalisAzure][

    There's a 2nd version of ArticOutpost out there.

    I'll consider that instead.

    I don't visit the Roost that often, but I'd go for ArcticOutpostv11 and EpicBoy (for now, the second may change at any given time :)).

    Even though I rarely play CTF online, I'd vote for Kilgore and umm TwinValley][. Although I think Stronghold][ is also worthy of mention, even though no-one in the world plays this map online :( this map really kicks!

    the new one by plutonic, ctf-revenge, is fast and easy on the framerate. Id say conquest but that map has a major bug where if the flag carrier uses the jump boots to jump above the castle, the ceiling kills him and the flag gets stuck above it (Doh!). Id then have to vote for ctf-terra.

    Whaddabout CTF-Cryptic (by EvilAtje)? I like it. But, as I almost never play on The Roost, my opinion might not count that much... Just an idea, give it a try.

    I just played one on Blat's server. I think it was called Breathe or Breath. It was a huge map, but those are the kinds I like the most. It was great fun.

    I think maps that are acceptable by p00ping Grounds or teamplay are all good bets.

    CTF-Gazpacho. It's a small download and it should have plenty of action with Roost's player limit, without being too crowded.

    I think maps in a server's rotation should be fun (of course) and have good variety. Most servers plays mostly indoor maps, which gets rather samey. Variety in maps rotation can do wonders, prime example is CTF-Thorns. Here's my map suggestion:

    1. CTF-BlackRiver2a : Its a medium size, 2-fort style, 100% outdoor map in broad daylight. The map is rather simple, but then popular & fun maps are the simple ones e.g. face and thorns. And there's no sniper rifle in this map. Here's a screenie of ctf-blackriver:

    [​IMG]

    2. CTF-Bedrooms : Its a "small people" map, small/medium size map set between 2 bedrooms. It should be fun and it sure adds variety.

    I would also like to play a CTF in an urban environment, but there are not many good ones out there. CTF-Urban is good, but the staircase leading to the flag is too narrow, defenders can just spam the area, but I suppose there is alternative, you could translocate to the flag area from nearby rooftops.

    Anyway, that's my 2 choices.

    And a killer on the FPS (FIN). I had it for a while. Ouch. (dragged me down to sub 30 from my normal high 50's)

    What about DDay?

    I don't play on the Roost often but here are some great maps....

    All my screenshots are really dark BTW...

    [​IMG]
    This map is called CTF-Zeitkind.....a huge urban map with great gameplay....the graphics are good too.......
    You don't need many players to have fun in this map...
    If you want to test this map just ask and I'll send it to you (It's hard to get this map)

    [​IMG]
    This CTF-Diamondsword2 AKA CTF-Diamondscythe ......this is quite a big map and too bad it has poor graphics.....The gameplay is good if you have lotsa players......

    [​IMG]
    It's too bad my screenshots are this dark.....this map is called CTF-ProjectX...it's a normal CTF map with a lot of routes to the enemy base......the map is dark (but not as dark as in my screenie) and perpect for people who like to sneak...

    [​IMG]
    CTF-Waterworld......a very nice map with great graphics and good gameplay.....It plays very much like Lavagiant but this one's bettert.......

    If you need to test one of these I'll send them...

    Remember people, the Roost has a 12 player limit. Instead of adding CTF-Bedrooms, BTW, why not add CTF-Bedrooms2?

    if you remove Thorns from rotation, i'll never let you admin The Web again ;)
    j/k
    seriously my votes go for
    CTF-ThornsV2
    CTF-Football

    Check out Football it's great for 5v5, by the maker of Gateways. Huge Thorns-ish open middle area. available here

    and one of these days I SWEAR I'll make it back to the Roost again... (been a while)
