Because all these servers are the same thing ¬____¬

Yes, and are the same because without bots, nobody will play with us, that is the reality. If I kick the bots, the servers will be empty.

Then, I need ideas, with a lot of instances, we can do some tests and see how it works.

The things we can change are:

-Gametype: CTF? Survivor? Or maybe...Free for all?
-Map rotation, timelimit, or capturelimit in CTF.
-Weapon capping.
-Maps: Then the bots will dissapear
-Jump server?
-Fun server? If someone knows how to apply particular cheats to the configs, and get things like, inmunity to falls.
-Mods: If someone knows how to get mods like the Zombie mod, or a mod with multiple weapons.
-More players? Yes, that 64 players servers, I have compiled a version and did some tests. If you find my 64 players server, go and enjoy the lag :D (Yes, is active, and I will not publish it...now :P)


Well, that are the possible changes that I can remember.


Now is your choice.

I hope this post will be answered...

well not that i am a expert or anything but your Algiers Seattle server seems fine to me ^.^ cant speck for the others

i like having 1 or 2 bots on a server myself, its nice sniper practice if i am alone, and if not it does at least give me a renewable source of ammunition :P

I love the algiers server, but it would be nice to have a survivor server. Definitely include austria and abbey. As for weapon caps, i wouldn't put any on, that would discourage some people from returning to your servers.

So: survivor: 20 min. timelimit w/ 3 min. rounds

just my opinion: if you decide to go for a CTF server, never include algiers in the rotation, it's horrible for ctf (the flags are too close and are really exposed.) Also, if the teams are even a tad bit unbalanced, it decides the whole game, and that's no fun. (idk if u can change the flag locations, if you could, it might work.)

anyways, I love your servers! Keep up the good work! (you swayed me from paladin servers :D but sometimes i go back just for survivor, so having one here would be awesome.)

PS: Your bots are pretty good, not as unfair as wtf bots or =|v|4= bots.

Thanks! And be welcome to the forum :D

Ahm, yes, I will put a Survivor :D Just let me think about that...

For CTF, well, you can't change the flag location, that implies modifications to the map.

And about the bots, just are the default bots, nothing modified. As far as I know, wtf has modified bots, I am looking on that too :P  (they have hats xD )

For profanity people get warned and kicked if they continue. If they comeback and keep doing it they get banned.

Most users normally get it right upon the first warning...

Most users kicked for profanity immediately reconnect and complain very rudely about being kicked for such a reason, so they end up being banned anyway for trashing an admin...

For tbagging, personally I don't do anything about it unless the tbaggee complains...then I warn the tbagger...

And by tbagging I refer to the action of the shooter crouching repeatedly over the head of the shot player.

Site Suggestions
« Reply #12 on: February 15, 2011, 01:31:07 pm »
Take these with a grain of salt... not meaning to bitch... just some things I noticed. 

1. Can you add a shoutbox to your site? I've found that if you promote your site and it has a shoutbox, it encourages a lot more community invovlement. It's also a great way to post information that doesn't require a thread. It's also a good way for people to get ahold of an admin (assuming the admins check the site regularly).

2. Domain names aren't super expensive... you might consider one if you're sticking around. looks like tlwsclan.com and tlwsclan.net are both available for cheap.

3. Having a list of available services on the main page of your site is nice. The moment a user gets to the site they can see what your teamspeak address is, what servers you run and the addresses for them. Or if that isn't feasible, having a dedicated page / thread with a link ON the main page maybe in the news section for it. It gives the information to the users and makes a good cheat sheet of who you are so you are. It looks like you're using SMF... which does allow you to use simple portal. Might be something you're interested in. Also wouldn't hurt to have the server rules in a sticky thread.

4. Speaking of news... the scrolling news things are not really the best way to distribute information.

Yep, I have in my brain some ideas, a kind of blog maybe, and the point 2, 3 and 4.

The problem, I don't have time to do it, and I don't have the money :D

I will do it, when I have some free time. Enhancing the site specifically.

as for the money, domains r dirt cheap. me n my friends got ours for like 10 bucks for 3 years. As durandal was saying, tlwsclan.com is available and goes for $11.99 a year on godaddy (a tad more expensive than others, but they feature pictures of hot women in their advertisements, so who wouldn't want to patronize their business?)

just a thought

PS: I love the snow on Algiers unlimited! keep it! :D:D:D:D

LOL snow, thanks, I think is funny :D there is rain too if you want instead :P

And the domain, yes, I know, is cheap, but I must pay all these hosting services too lol. As I said sometime ago, this "project" is just for others, I don't get anything for doing it =) no more than the satisfaction of the players having fun.

And about the pics, lol yeah, godaddy is funny. I have bought domains form 1and1.com and dreamhost only (and some local resellers in Mexico) :P

tlwsclan.net is only $1.99 ;)

You could actually point the domain to redirect here... it would just give you an easier name to use... and if you get a new site later, just point it there.

I swear I saw .net for 2 bucks yesterday lol. Either way... it's not pricey... even at 10. Although .info isn't bad either.

As you wish :P

Check the new server,208.115.237.36. I hope more people will connect. Anyway, is just a test, because that machine is a little bit unstable ¬¬

i'v had two main request from players in the server, the snow it is suggested takes about 30 fps out of a players total fps, and they have suggested it be stopped,

they also have asked the bots be turned down from what they think is a 4 (whatever that means) to a 3 or 2, i assume thats the lvl of cohesion they have, their ability to play and aim and such.

Really are so many FPS? I am looking for a command to disable it from the client side. But, if this is affecting some playability, then I will disable it :S
Some people accuse the FPS slowdowns to these factors, but if the server has 30 players, and everybody is shotting, and throwing smoke, that is the real reason. Also the network may cause some slowdowns

About the bots...hmmm, a level 4 is dumb IMO, a level 3 is so stupid... xD There are only 2 bots, I think they are fair. Look at their score u_u sometimes they have death sprees ¬¬

I will put these bots at Level 3, and you will see how they will be PWNED so bad xD

Keep the bots at level 4 at least.  Its good they have some teeth to their natural wallhacking skills.

Also, these people that are bitching about FPS drops with the snow is bogus.  I push 125 W/ Ikalizer running.

What their problem is they have their install all fancied up with things like: brass, bullet marks, blooding, etc.

Add some smoke and hk'in and that should explain their drops mostly.

My one suggestion for Algiers would be to break up the rounds into more than one per day.

It is cool to see how many kills/deaths you accumulate with the overall daily score.

Adding more rounds with a shuffle at the start would keep it from being so one sided for great amounts of time.

Well, I can't assume the people has a pretty decent machine. Many have integrated video cards, or slow cpu's. I removed the fancy snow anyway :(  Let's try


And about the rounds... I can limit that to... maybe 8 hours.

About the shuffle :| Well, AFAIK I can't call a shuffleteams automatically when the map starts. I am wondering if putting the command in the mapcycle list will work.

I don't remember ever seen rain on the Dressing Room 24/7...I've seen snow, but never rain...can you activate rain for that one?

I would like to see how it looks...and being such a tiny map which never runs nades or smoke (except for the times when I activate them) it shouldn't be an issue...
