    i've an XMP map that needs some final feature checks (custom code, optimization, etc.) before releasing for general play, but can't set up a publically-accessible dedicated server myself (ISP limitations-- bah!). i can test the majority of stuff via my LAN server setup, but some things need a full load of players to test completely.

    i'm loathe to put a not-fully tested map onto a server where it might end up proliferating, leading to version confusion. so...are there any servers out there dedicated solely to testing maps-in-progress? Xaero, is this something AlienPod can help with?

    Need screenshots of your map. ;)

    There is a server called "[_X_] Clan: New maps" or something like that. I've been on there a bunch of times and that server owns. They do a lot of the newer maps. The admins' emails are listed as soon as you join the server in spectator mode.

    They appear to test the maps out and make minor changes to make the maps playable. For example, my map SkyIslands had radar added by them.

    Talked with Xixax, and hes more than willing to help. Stop by our forums at www.alienpod.com, or better yet, our IRC channel on Gamesurge is #alienpod ...you should be able to find a live person there.

    thanks for inquiring, Xaero, i'll nip on over to AlienPod for more info, and also drop a line to [_X_]ecutioners.

    Dragon_Myr, i put some screenies from my map on my site:

    http://home.metrocast.net/~chipartist/pizza50/

    follow the obvious links. the map is called XMP-Styx (no connection with mapper of similar handle -- just a coincidence)

    hey nice map- like the waterfall, steamy river, smoking generators (i prefer bladerunner rather than star trek as images of the future, so smoke and pollution seem right..) good use of forcewalls, great 3d work on the base and -stalactites? i wonder how.
    see yous in the test server. if i can only remember where the fire button is....

    that reminds me i still don't know if a vehicle will fall through a lift on a laggy server yet.
