    BU hosted mapper Hointar has released ONS-PolarIceField. The map weight just over 3MB, and requires the ECE Bonus Pack.

    I can't download it :\ Edome and Gameservers are giving nice cannot find server errors, Jetstream is a 403, and filefront (which is ugh enough as it is) is giving SQL errors...

    Can confirm the same issues - though FileFront is up and running again, it can't find the file and just displays the home page.

    If someone wants to e-mail me the file, I'll stick it up on a couple of my personal mirrors in the meantime.

    [edit]

    Well, FileFront is up again, but there are no public servers listed to download from :/

    Same problem here, and I tried all mirrors numerous times now.
    It will probably just take some time for the file to get fully uploaded everywhere.

    Then again... it says there have been 169 downloads already... how is that possible?
    Which mirror(s) anyway... or it is probably just counting how often the hub page has been opened.
    I'll just wait a bit. :)

    I think the number of downloads is the number of clicks that have been made on the download buttons - regardless of whether we have a successful download.

    I can confirm the above download issues too - really, really wanna try this map. I hope someone didn't get April Fools confused with US Labour Day!

    Works for me, and I'm guessing it ought to work for everyone now. Well only the first 2 links for now. Game Servers and Jetstream don't update until sometime late AM.

    The file just hadn't been mirrored yet by the servers. Mirroring times for eDome and Filefront are sometime around 6:00 PMish EST.

    The file just hadn't been mirrored by the servers yet earlier.

    eDome and Filefront should be working now, but GameServers and JetStream don't mirror until sometime late AM.

    Additional Mirrors

    FileFront is working, but eDome and GameServers still are not.

    In any case, I've added the file to Mapraider and added two additional mirrors if you still aren't able to get the file:

    eDome seems to be working at 5:52am EST. Downloaded it in under 30 seconds too.

    I just used the eDome server and got it, and it's indeed a nice map, subtle, attractive and a decent layout, though the central node has an excessive amount of powerups (redeemer, target painter, keg o health, sheild...)

    Yeah, I got it and gave it a couple rounds against some bots. Not bad, but I agree about the middle being a bit overpowered. Even so, it's still pretty fast paced, and the bots were able to push my team back a little more than once. Overall it's a keeper.

    Oh, and it lacks a minimap, which is kind of annoying... :|
