Server Idea's

Hi, Spoke to Solifer, and he feels this is a good idea as well. This is my suggestion:

So, here goes. We all know that a certain amount of people donate. This is down to rescources, jobs etc, so I know some have to watch their outgoings, which is perfectly fine. So, this is the reason why paying for a server for 6 months etc is a bit deflating for the odd few that pay regulary.

So, my idea is this.

We still donate etc as normal, but there is a list of who has dontated etc. Then, once a month we go for a server choice of one of those donors.

So, for example, say Bjorne is one of the donators (along with 5 or so others). For that month, Bjorne picks the game for the server. So, he may pick a Chivalery server.

We get it via Fragnet etc, mabe use Procon to set it up (if that is the tool to use etc), and that is the server we have for that month. If no-one plays it etc, no big deal. We have that on BF4 already. Then, at the end of the month, it expires, simple as that.

Then, after a week or so, we look at the list of donors again, and pick the next name. This time it could be Wookie, and he wanted a Sniper Elite server (if they do them), and we set it up etc.

I feel that this may be a good thing, as many of us use Steam etc, and play many other games than just BF4. I still play BF3, as well as many others.

Having a BF4 server only dies a death thru the week, and then on a Friday, if IF we get the players, it starts up.

Posting a basic list of games etc below

The server dies in the week because of the maps and game modes on it....look at the servers that are busy and use the same map list...Im sure one of the servers that BIA
run changes from DOM/TDM to CNQ when the amount of players goes they are not trying to start a large conquest with 4 players...

But I think we tried an entire Domination list once, and people got bored and left to play conquest.

I'll get it set just tdm/dom and see how it goes for Friday.

It expires on 4th November, so we'll set it up and leave it on those modes till then.

After that, we may as well try a different route, as no-one plays on it thru the week, and sometimes on a Friday if its just 4 or 5 people in there, people get fedup and leave to populated servers.

Just thought I may say, if its a huge sucess, we'll get an extension, but need a few more inputs.

I know we have voting on, but it will only be tdm/dom, so no vehicals.

We have the sniper limit as well, so will see how it goes :yes: :yes:

Put TDM/Dom on, and it only really filled up at 11pm. At that point, all I could hear was people saying they were bored of the small maps, bring on the conquest.

I know you say BIA uses small maps and it works, but look at BOB. They have large maps, and it works as well. I think its all a matter of what server is well known out there.

So, I was thinking of this: Just Naval maps (all modes) for a week. Then just Second Assualt (all modes) etc.

Rename server:

Aliens Naval Strike - 24/7

So that people know what it is. Worth a bash, I'll set it up today

If you read my post again, it says that they have a system in place that alters the game mode dependant on the amount of players on the must be a plugin
of some sort? All map types get boring after too many rounds....

We use Rconnet, as Procon kept crashing. I'll have a look and see if they have anything.

Didn't realise you meant that Witty, sorry about that :cry:
