I asked around and what I heard is that it can be done with the b3 plugin weaponconrol  :) (the smiles look funny now)
Also maybe make the command !admins available to all registered users?

I don't think that's a good idea. Many times an admin comes on aliased just to see if a hacker is online. No reason to sound the trumpet when one is there.

Agreed.  !admins is only useful if you want to talk to an admin for some reason.  I think most of the people who would want to contact an admin already know the admins or know they can post a demo on these forums.
The reverend don't tell me his business, so I don't see any reason to tell him mine.

I guess i hadn't thought about that, sorry  :-\
And xlrstats would be nice, i don't care too much about my stats but there interesting, it tells you your worst enemies, preferred weapons and hitzones  etc.etc

Hehe xlrstats.

Yes, I want to install it since years ago xD

But is ugly (and complex) u_u My desire is to create a custom interface for it.
Anyway let me think about that =)

Maybe I'm just weird, but (Durandal - shhhhhh!  ;D) I like the stripped down/out version of things. What I mean is, instead of adding more bells and whistles, keep things simple and get rid of what I see players complain about the most - lag.
If there's a way to make that lag go away, that'd be my first choice even if it meant getting rid of some add ons..

Unfortunately the only way is probably getting a dedicated server, which costs a lot u_u

Or continue hoping to another hosting companies to see how it goes.

The other night you mentioned, iPWN, that the ban lists are creating lag... are they on the same server or a different one?

Hmmm, AFAIK there is no way to have the banlists out of the server.
The game just can read the banlist.txt file in the game directory (well... ~/.q3a/q3ut4/ in Linux). So, is local

The banlist is big, very big, and UrT sucks, I have no idea how it processes the list, but surely does it in a poor way. I don't know if that can be modified, because probably is a ioquake3 core problem.

I have some quick ideas, and I tried some time ago

1. If a subnet /24 (ip X.X.X.*) has more than... let's say 5 ip's in the banlist, ban the subnet.
2. If a subnet /16 (ip X.X.*.*) has more than... let's say 10-15 ip's in the banlist, ban the subnet.

And now I got a new idea
3. If an IP is "isolated", I mean, is the only IP at the /16 or /24 network, delete it only if doesn't appear in the bigbrotherbot bans in the past month (or two months, but the b3 database for SJC is still "young"). And other details, but I need to work on it.

If you have another idea on how to clean the banlist, is welcome.

Note: The banlists are just a list of IP's or subnets, one per row, and are sorted, so, the only way to know if an IP has been recently added is via the b3 databases (looking in all the databases, one for each server).

Is there a way to rotate the banned IP's out of the list after a certain time period? We can do temp bans, which automatically delete themselves after whatever time limit we set, what about making the pbans for 90(?) days? Or we could maybe do pbans the same way we do temp bans. Pick a time frame. How long can we go? 60, 90, 120? The server could clean out all the old, most likely changed, useless ones and shorten the list.

Well, yes, but maybe we got a little confusion here :P

The banlist is the only file that UrT can read.
The tempbans in b3 never are wrote to that banlist, that are just wrote to the b3 database. If you look carefully, when a tempbanned guy try to reconnect, it appears in the top of the screen, and then b3 kicks them, isn't based in the IP address only, but the GUID.
The permbans are in both, the database and the banlist.txt file :P and here the game kicks the people if the IP matches. And if the player pass this filter (IP filter or banlist), then b3 kicks them via the GUID.

And the rotate, yes, I can write something to rotate it (indeed is the idea of the point #3), but I need some time to think about that, and what rules can mantain that IP in the list instead of deleting it.

I understand about B3 using IP and GUID. I was actually asking if it's feasible to make a perm ban the same way we make a temp ban - just for a lot longer.

Yes, but that will be out of b3. I mean, an external script to prune the penalties table at the database n_n That step is pretty simple, but I most do it at the same time in all the databases, and then look at the banlist for that IP's, to remove them, and finally reupload the new banlists, lol

I suggest to change the bot load out from a UMP to an MP5 cause the UMP deals so much damage that if you encounter a bot at a range your as good as dead..

plus, those all of a sudden burst fire from a mile away hitting your head is too much.. its the burst fire....

or if the MP5k isnt good how about the SPAS?... Ive had some good vibes with bots using the spas..
Anyone willing to help me out on a simple Siggy project of mine?

I was OK when the bots had AK's, even Lr's. The UMP is deadly in their hands.
There are moments I wish they had only Beretta's and smoke `nades.

Its just that the bots kinda get in the way when Im flanking.. actually they get in the way in the most peculiar timing...
although its not really a problem where the bots decide to go take a leisure stroll, cause you can just take them out, problem is if they whip up that
deadly UMP well chances are youll only last about 3 seconds tops.

Maybe It'd be fair if you delayed the bots' reaction time by a second or something, that'd give players more time to react and you'd have less situations where players get one shotted out of the blue.

Hi man, thanks, sounds good but unfortunately the infamous bots will crash u_u

I've done some experiments in Germany, as some people can notice now, that server doesn't have bots. Now it's ranking is going down like an idiot

Subway supports bots.  I'd like to see it in rotation, but it isn't very popular.  Maybe for 10 minutes between Abbey and Algiers?  Or maybe not.

Along those lines, what's going on in Chicago?  I often see it empty.  Sometimes there are bots, sometimes there aren't.  Would you consider making it a CTF server (with bots)?  Or TDM with no bots and custom maps?  I don't think it will hurt its popularity.

The first thing that flashed in my mind was a bot getting a flag and still meandering off towards the opponents' spawn.

Yes, the first idea is CTF. Also I can run more servers in that box, just the lazy part is to set up the freaking b3 :P (it has lots of RAM, just I am not enough confident in the company yet).

Oh, and the bots dissappear because they get inactive u_u

I second this, but the success rate for that these days is...lowish. One idea is to make a second mapcycle for when the server gets full, spec the bots and exec that cycle. I dunno.

Tried that a lot. I am unable to mantain stable the server despite disabling the bots. The maps without bot support still crash.... must be a particular detail.


Oh, btw, afaik subway doesn't support bots o_O

Is it possible to do a map cycle that changes from TDM to CTF to Bomb (or some combination of that) with bot friendly maps? With a shorter time frame like maybe 15min/250 frags for TDM?
