OCR TF2 Server - Anyone interested in trying out TF2 should join us!


Recommended Posts

I shall be on this Friday - I've been busy for the past month or so (went to Las Vegas for almost a week, then to Houston for Zilac & Miss Velociraptor's wedding, then this past week to DC for MAGFest).

Hopefully we can get it going more regularly again!

Edit: correction - I can't hop on this Friday, boss wants to take a remote worker in town to the movies :( .

Server Update for 3/18

The server has been updated to the newest version of TF2. In addition, several config changes have been made.

- mapCycle list has been added. The server will now pick from a more select list when choosing maps to vote on (this means that when nobody nominates, we won't see tc_hydro as a random pick anymore!). The nomination list is unchanged and all maps on the server can still be nominated for voting.

- Map ctf_thundermountain has been added to nominations list

- "Recent Maps nomination" set has been reduced from last 7 maps to last 2 maps.

I actually had it intentional that all default maps were possibilities in the unnominated voting list - did people not like that?

The server appeared to pick the most unplayed maps as the choices for the map list. So if no one nominated anything, we would end up with the 5 pretty horrible maps.

Since we've got the forums all upgraded, I want to push for people to start using the forum's built-in calendar functions for organizing community events like game nights and stuff.




You should be able to submit an event for TF2 nights. All you need is a moderator approval on the event, which I can do on a regular basis. Please decide on one person to submit the event. Wes should also be able to do it without the need for moderator approval.

Big update incoming tonight. Lots of crazy tenative changes.


New feature : Weapon exchange and pick up. Weapons dropped by killed players can no longer be picked up for ammo. Killed players will now also drop a medium ammo box.

Vaccinator Uber deploys give the patient a 2.5 second bubble of 75% damage resistance of the current resist type and full crit resistance to that type.

From my personal website: VictoryPit Community Night for November 6, 2015


Hello all! I hope you are all ready for community night tomorrow! We have some much needed changes in store, and a few fun extras!
First thing's first, the server's configuration has seen a second overhaul. We have removed some dated plugins and reworked our configuration files. Map voting was confusing before, and I have condensed it down into two files. By default, admins and users alike can now access all maps on the server. However, the map voting options is limited to a subset of popular stock and custom maps. This way, we won't get a bunch of strange or odd votes when nobody nominates anything.
Secondly, admin menus and permissions have been cleaned up. If we can't trust our administrators, why should you? All administrators have been given equal access across the board.
Next up, the removal of reserved slots. While some enjoyed the bonus of first priority, reserved slots have shown to be novelty at best and only seem to serve to drive away new potential community members who feel unwelcome when kicked. As such, they will be retired indefinitely.
All configuration changes can be seen over at the GitHub Repository for the OCReMix Server!
Lastly, what's a community without community? A longtime mapmaker who has showcased on OCR is back again with a new map! After five years in the making, we are proud to host pl_corrode! Let's see what all it has to offer tomorrow night during OCR TF2 night!
Check it out at the Steam Workshop!
