To Admin of tS AQ2 FFA
« on: April 01, 2013, 01:13:15 PM »
 Can we have some classics maps in the rotation? Maps like Urban, Teamjungle, Mesto, Cliff2, etc?

 The older maps are very different from the modern maps -- they have less corners, wider spaces open spaces, and generally a simpler layout with less buildings and clutter -- Not saying one map is better than the others, since a lot of the older maps give advantages to snipers, but I think they could add an interesting element to the Tastyspleen FFA Server and bring back some older players

Here are a few maps that I'd love to see in the rotation :D

Urban
Urban 2
Cliff2
Mesto
Cracked
Teamjungle
Thicket

To add to this discussion, the following maps on the AQ2 server don't seem to have weapons placed on them and should probably be removed:

santa
dhouse
lavatube
mirror
summerplace
sunken3
country2
wfall2

Thanks for the welcome :D

Any word on getting the new maps put into the rotation?

Greetings.

This new system that gives no weapons (except pistol and knife) to start with is awful. Now you just have to run around finding weapons and the ones with good knowledge of the map knows where to find them all. Previous one with all the weapons at once was not so good either.

I suggest that you get to pick your weapon and item of choice before spawning and collect the rest on the way. Solid ten minute round time and no fraglimit would be improvement also.

Map suggestions:
act2r (Better than actcity2)
Actcity3
Actdam
Border
Cliff2
Cloud 1-3
Junkke2
Other
TJT
Lihapullavuoret2
Mesto
Pier
Time
Urban1-3
Wfall
Wizs

And FYI. As many seem to be still unaware of this new Java based AQ2 and Q2 client. There is new updated client available that works if you have Java installed in your system (Oracle and Icedtea is known to work). It works on Linux, Mac and windows machines. It searches and lists all the servers in the world for AQ2 and on Q2.

http://aq2world.com/

Here is direct link to Tastyspleen AQ2 FFA server (Opens Java window and installs client if not installed already):
http://q2online.net/connect/action/74.86.171.200:27926

This one for CTF (Simnet or some other available CTF):
http://q2online.net/match/action/teamplay=1,matchmode=0,ctf=1

You can change between AQ2 and Q2 by disconnecting server and giving these commands to console:
game action
game action=0

Quake folder can then be found in Linux hidden under your home folder: /home/.q2online/
There you can add your maps and any other crap you need to enhance your gaming experience.

OK,

I've been given permission to make changes to the AQ2-FFA server, so here's what I've done:

  • Fraglimit has been raised to 50
  • Existing maps that contained no weapons were removed
  • All maps suggested in this topic have been added to the map rotation
  • Committing suicide no longer gives your attacker free kills (this was being abused)

In addition to this, I've uploaded the contents of the AQ2 client PAK I posted earlier to the server and created an action.filelist that will allow users with HTTP downloading enabled to automatically download the files they need while connecting, so there's no more requirement to separately download and install the mod ahead of time.

Here's the current map rotation:

mountainpass
radar
lihapullavuoret2
actcity3
beer
2040rb
urban2
cliff2
cracked
teamjungle
hidden3
ctown2
wfall
facility3
666mines
revolution
junkke2
templesg
quay
thicket
tjt
lumber
other
pier
assassin4
zoo
mesto
nine2
time
actdam
beach
wizs
cloud3
de_dust
urban3
border
cloud
teacher
spring
urban
seastation
bwcity
cloud2
bloodspa
act2r
sgmist
country
bwcity2

We'll go ahead and try this out on the server for now, and make adjustments as necessary.

You da man!  :evilalien:

Look forward to playing some of these great maps again  :lol:

that's the best aq2 map.

Just tried it out, looks pretty cool, but unfortunately it wasn't made with FFA in mind as it contains no weapon spawns.  :-\

You can fix that with an override if you want. It's a really good map, so it'd be worth the effort.  :-*

Nice work Elysium,  I will give aq2 another shot.  I haven't tried it since tasty first got an aq2 server.
Wasn't thrilled with it personally at the time,  but maybe my taste have changed.  New maps and more players, can't hurt to try it again.

Thanks for the hard work. I had fun playing here over the weekend.

Getting my gun kicked out of my hand was awesome and some quirks/bugs with the knock back physics made for some funny moments.

Nicely done  :bravo:  Now it's playable. There also could be weapon spawns on a map for extra ammo.

Invite does not work.

Would it be possible to create Action quake it's very own section to this forum? That way it could be noticed better. Many Quake players probably don't even know what AQ mod is.

There we could add all necessary information on how to play. These single threads goes unnoticed and vanishes very soon.

There is something wrong with some of the maps you added on list. Versions were different and server refused to connect until i erased my existing maps from my /map folder and let it download from the FFA server. This annoyance probably happens again when those maps are played in other servers where i have downloaded them earlier.

Has anyone else had these problems?
