Calisto|NA West|Highlander|Items(for now)|
« on: August 05, 2014, 08:16:08 pm »

Calisto|NA West|

Alright so here's the deal. This server is running Highlander. However, I'm open to the idea of running almost anything. Would people prefer something with an item server? Highlander with an item server? Just a regular server? It's your call. This also goes for the map rotation.

And about my connection...well, it's complete ass, honestly. Your mileage may vary if you're on the east coast. Likely unplayable in Europe or Asia. Sorry about that, it's beyond my pay check. I'm too embarrassed to post a speed test. Jump on and judge it for yourself if you can tolerate it. There might be lag spikes every now and again, but there isn't anything I can do about that.

This isn't 24/7 either, obviously, but I'll do my best to keep it up.

I'm not picky about what goes on in the server, but don't be an asshole and start harassing others. Be respectful and don't be racist, use slurs, and just have common sense. Playful trash talking is completely fine by me, though. Spamming the chat is also frowned upon too. I'll probably warn you first, then kick you if you keep it up, and then ban you if you don't stop. I'm pretty lenient, though.

Anywho, on to more relevant information...

Location: NA West Coast
Player Limit: 14
Cap Limit: 4

Split and moved this to servers for the sake of convenience.

First of all, welcome to the forums! Ultimately, it's up to the server host to decide what kind of server they want. However, a few good guidelines that you might want to follow (this is based on competitive server settings, and I feel that those are the best server settings)

Player limit: Depending on whether or not your computer can handle it, 12-14 players is a good place to start.
Respawn time: 7 seconds
Cap limit: 4
Time limit: I'd say 12 minutes is good enough, unless you want to have quick rounds like Hanako. Feel free to experiment with them and see what people prefer.
Maps: These maps are pretty damn good. Feel free to pick and choose from them. You might want to avoid a/d cp maps (they take too long), most dkoth maps (once again, they take too long), and gen (most people don't seem to like this specific game mode)
Plugins: chat_v2 (best chat IMO), dkoth antistall. For a list of serversent plugins, check them out here.
Classlimits: Highlander is best IMO. If you don't want highlander, 2 of each class should suffice.

You should also host with DSM. It has a bunch of useful capabilities that are helpful to hosts.

Have fun!

Also, do you want me to add you to the server directory?

Thanks for the split and the welcome, I appreciate it! My apologies for being a bit daft and posting that in the other thread, though.

And thank you for those settings suggestions! I'll definitely be going with that at the moment. Still not really a fan of dkoth so I'll likely keep that out for now, unless people really want it. I'll stick with highlander unless something more requested pops up, but I'm a fan of it personally.

Also, do you want me to add you to the server directory?
Sure thing! I'd really appreciate that!

I hopped on this server yesterday when it was empty :drool:

Speed felt acceptable and comparable to other US servers I've been on (I connect from AUS)

And as Okto said, chat_v2 is probably the best choice of chat plugin for now.

Welcome to the forums!

I'll note that while a lot of people love "highlander", there's a good number of people that set everything but what they believe to be overpowered to 2, and it just works. There's no problem with having two pyros, but someone might hate allowing two constructors or two soldiers.

My stuff... It's being used :wuv:

Anyway, not all dkoth is bad. You should try using dkoth_kots, it generally plays out a lot better and a lot more fun than other dkoth maps.

Glad to hear it! Yeah, I'll stick with chat_v2. Good stuff.

Thanks! This is completely true. Perhaps after a few days if people are open to that idea, I'll try it out.

Thank you for your hard work on the map pack and DSM! (I have yet to try your new Garrison Builder, I'm sure it's much better than the older one.) Alright, I put dkoth_kots on the server, I guess we'll see how it goes! Thanks for the suggestion!

Hm! I think it has a tendency to lag every once in a while to the extreme (another thread someone had 80k+ ping) and it'll calm down after a few minutes. This is mostly my ISP's fault.

Sure! I'll take highlander off tonight and see how that goes!

Yay never listen to prime  :heheangel:

No seriously, highlander is actually cool, the only problem is when the medic spot is taken by a....person who doesn't even know you can heal as healer/afk :drool:

Would a solution to this be opening the medic limit to 2, where as other classes are 1? I think a votekick function (rtv/votemap would also come in handy) would probably be best, but I have no idea how to implement that right now. (Unless I haven't seen something regarding it, which is entirely possible.)
