Dm8 is warehouse right? I have always enjoyed that map too. It may be large but everyone knows their way around.
Which makes it not see so big.


Is there a way to call a mapvote on rail server?

Here is what I propose for the 2016 railz server map rotation (with photos of the maps):


http://imgur.com/a/aJKlN

2box4 - Railgun 101
beta2dm - Beta2dm
carena - C Arena
dduckrails14 - Temple Mess by Duck
gr2dm1 - gr2dm1 by Paranoia
gym - Gym Nastium by Panjoo
instakilla - Instakilla V2 by Panjoo
komit - Komit by Kaiser
marics_con3 - Somewhere Not Here! by Maric
marics_insta2 - Locus Insta by Maric
marics_ra7 - Nuthin' but Rails! by Maric
marics35 - Rustic Arena 2 by Maric
marics42 - Eye of the Storm by Maric
meadow3 - The Killing Fields
railwar1 - Rail Arena
rockrail - Rockets and Rails
rqmarena4 - Mezzaneine
shiro2 - Railblend2 by Shiro
slug - The Slug by Max EraZ R
spasmo6 - Spasmolytic 6 by Qarnifex
wdrail3 - Shinto Shrine
wdrail4 - Insta Arena
zackwos - WOS is Boss by Well of Souls

This would bring the rotation down to 23 maps (cutting the current list in half.)  The 21 eliminated maps are the bigger ones, the ones we don't play as often, and DM classics (like aerowalk and q2dm1) that are going to get "mymap"ped anyway:

aerowalk - Aerowalk by Preacher
bsol - Broken Solitude by Mr. Clean
demonrail1a - Railmap 1a by Dirt Demon
jabs - Albino Black Sheep by Jester
jex2dm2 - Colossal Carnage by JexJackl
in2obl In2 Oblivion by Pan
laddm1
levels - Levels by Vertigo5
marics43 - Terra Firma by Maric
marics_ra2 Ka'nighets Arena by Maric
monster5 - Pluto's Antechamber dm5 by Monster
q2dm1 - The Edge
q2dm1nc - The Edge...No Camp by Vader
q2dm8 - The Warehouse
q2rdm1 - The Flesh Refinery by Musashi
q2rdm2 - The Chastity Belt Duel by Jalisko
railasnail - Rail A Snail by Meth
square - The Terminator Square by Sabotuer
ven_dm4 - Crater Kitchen by Ven
wdrail02 - Doin's Altar
ztn2dm3 - The Rage

OK guys let me know what you think!

Thanks for putting this together.

The railz rotation has been set to your suggested list, in randomized order:

marics_insta2 grdm1 marics42 rockrail spasmo6 shiro2 zackwos slug marics_con3 railwar1 dducksrails14 wdrail03 wdrail04 marics35 instakilla beta2dm carena marics_ra7 rqmarena4 komit meadow3 2box4 gym

Everything else is still available via mymap.

Everyone feel free to propose additional tweaks/changes.

ISP appears to be Verizon Fiber-optic, Dallas, TX.

That'd do it.

leathaman possibly seen 179 days ago on acmerwz, otherwise 1392 days ago on railz.

llamaking last seen 255 days ago on railz and acmematch2.

(Both on different ISPs than Godspeed, who dates back to 2008, and has been on his current Verizon ISP since 2012.)

Used to, people'd be (haha, just dumbfounded myself with how retarded that contraction of "people would" looks in text, but that's actually how my hick ass says it) MIA for a year or so and always come back to Qrack pipe eventually. Now they just fuckin' leave, end of story. We should incentivize playing q2 like all the other games do now to artificially extend their lifespans. Rank numbers for every 1000 frags, Q-points for frags you can redeem for fancy gold weapon skins, hairstyles and clothes for your Grunt, etc.

No. Only "mymap"
"vote" is a feature used on opentdm servers.

Yeah, you also gotta figure with the history Tastyspleen has of being a fuckhead magnet, somehow, somewhere, someone will abuse map voting and cause problems. People already sometimes abuse the mymap feature to vote maps that they know will annoy the shit out of people and make them disconnect. It probably doesn't happen so much anymore, but only because less people play anyway, and most of those remaining players would rather actually PLAY the game than spend that time trying to being annoying pricks picking maps they know will empty out the server faster than yelling "COPS!" in a crowded crackhouse. At least with mymap, everyone gets an equally fair shot at picking any map of their choice rather than potentially having a group of others being assholes and constantly outvoting them.

If I could vote a map to change map with out having to wait for time limit or frag limit to see the next map I would be inclined to play at railz server more often and longer durations of time. I do not know very many map file names that are used in the railz mod. just q2dm1 and q2dm8. the rest are foreign to me. If I really wanted to learn them all i could gamemap each mapname on my machine locally and learn them myself. But it would be more fun in my opinion to vote them and learn them with 1 or a few other players and discuss with them on server what map they want to play and which are favorites. after learning more maps and building relationships with players on railz server I would feel more qualified and confident to use the mymap function.

In the railwarz community we are forced to vote a map to change map since rotation is broken.  Sometimes a bad map will get voted  or come up on the rare occasion that the rotation kind of works.. but then a better map is voted  and the game goes on. We get quite a few idlers on railwarz servers so we keep the voting percentage at 40 or 50% Majority always wins and we have very few issues with voting abuse. Railwarz CTF servers stay very busy very often in the evenings.

if the rotation worked in railwarz. and we had mymap feature but no mapvoting. i think we would have a lot of unhappy players and the player count would suffer.


railz server may not get as many idlers so maybe a higher percentage 60 or 70% would be needed to prevent someone or a couple someones from trying to abuse the vote and vote a bad map on purpose to try and clear the server.

voting to change a map instantly could possibly create some issues to bicker over. but nothing that couldn't be resolved and fixed by reporting and warning abusers followed by suspension or ban

so i hope it can be considered. imo it would make the railz server more enjoyable and less reason to disconnect.
