OCR TF2: New Server forthcoming - new server IPs and other stuff

Recommended Posts

the only good custom models I have ever seen are the ones for hats

oh and the one that turns the heavy into a bear but even that is kind of silly

So I changed the map rotation to this:

ctf_2fort

cp_granary

pl_badwater

cp_egypt_final

cp_fastlane

ctf_turbine

cp_steel

pl_goldrush

cp_gravelpit

ctf_well

cp_dustbowl

cp_badlands

ctf_1fort_a6

cp_junction_final

I wasn't a fan of the previous 1forts, but I'm curious to see what changes were made in a6 (plus by request by shpladoink).

Also, I need to restart the server for the whitelist change to take into effect, which will probably happen in the morning.

Whelp, from watching some youtube videos of TF2 I've figured out that my computer isn't showing certain things, like fire or the medic's healing ray thing. This makes playing as pyro or medic kind of a pain. Is there any way to fix this or am I just gonna have to deal with it?

Back from camp and my next trip to Honduras got cancelled (apparently there's a revolution going on? Haven't had internet for about a week).

How're things? I tried reading through the like 10 pages or so since I left, but couldn't do it. Too much stuff going on.

Yeah, the President of Honduras got deposed for trying to pursue increasing electoral limits on the presidency to be more than 1 term, and they appointed a new president in his stead. However, the rest of the world refuses to recognize the new one as the president.

Edit: In short, smaller admin list, refreshed mapcycle, and custom skins & models allowed.

You could try installing a custom fire or medibeam model, that may fix it.

The two I found that work best are these, from FPSBanana:

Hope that helps!

I've set my server back up, just add 'fireslash.net' to your favorites (or just connect to it); it's easier to remember than an IP :)

Right now it's fairly vanilla, but feel free to use it for whatever. PM me if you want a map added or admin rights; I'm offering it as more of a sandbox for the community right now.

No, you should make plr_well.

EDIT: Guys, there's a new HL2/SourceSDK mod out called NeoTokyo, which is kind of like a cyberpunky GitS style FPS. I want to try it out with a couple of OCR folks; Fireslash will be setting up a server for us to play around in tonight, so if anyone else wants to hop-in and try it out, feel free. Just don't be a douche or anything. xD

I missed out on the NeoTokyo action, but I was playing a lot of BlazBlue tonight.

I ended up banning three people today.

I think it may have been justified. Maybe not.

But for the love God. Please don't be a douche on the internet.

It's little fucksticks like you that are ruining this place for us.

That is all.

BlazBlue still sucks.

You know, I ended up serverside muting a couple of guys last night, specifically SpectreShot. I'm not really sure I understand the point of constantly screaming how awesome you are into the mic, or badmouthing your own team, but I'm getting kind of tired of it. Also, to the general server population, don't use the mic to just scream "FUCK!" (or variations of that) really loud when someone kills you or something doesn't go your way. Yes, you're an engineer and your sentry got destroyed. Yes, you're a sniper and yes you got backstabbed. Yes, you're a spy and you got set on fire. Yes, the FaN distrupts your momentum when you're trying to run. Deal with it. If you want to cuss and yell, fine, just do it without pressing your voicechat button.

And please, if you're going to set up music for playing over the mic, make sure it's not excessively loud. I generally don't mind too much if someone wants to play some music during setup rounds, but it's really annoying if it's crackling or if it's so loud that people aren't able to continue talking over it.

I will say, however, that I'm impressed with some of the players last night. We had a guy playing who sounded kind of young and he seemed new to the game and was asking a lot of questions. Rather than bagging on the kid for being a kid (like a lot of morons like to do), people were helping him out and explaining the game to him. That's the kind of thing I like to see on the server, so thank you to those guys who made playing a pleasant experience for a newbie.

Anyway, Wes, we didn't end up playing NeoTokyo last night. I'm personally waiting for the linux binaries so that FireSlash can install the server on his box, because I would rather play a new game that seemingly relies a lot on teamwork and communication with people that I'm comfortable playing with and on a server that we have a degree of control over (so that we're able to just explore the game and figure stuff out).

I quit XBOX live because of that, and will not be renewing my subscription when the time comes. I can't stand playing games with obnoxious people over the net.

Good to hear that SOME are being hospitable on the net.

I tried NeoTokyo last night and had a pretty terrible time. It seems pretty generic honestly, in terms of both gameplay and general look and feel. I dunno though, maybe it gets better when you learn the nuances of using squads and stuff.
