I hope the auto downloader works for you all, if not check out our map pack at http://downloads.mwbu.net or you can download our the maps individually at http://downloads.mwbu.net/maps.

That looks good Globel. Though we may need some more custom maps, I know I have been Mirage'd to death recently, others have been Sandblasted to oblivion. Still if we can get some good games going, it doesn't really matter what map we're playing.  8)

Oh! Frost has a new ver of his TC Ring o' Fire map which we were play testing a bit tonight. I think he has to do a little more work so there will most likely be an even newer ver of this map available tomorrow sometime.

Edit: damn! I like the theme for this sub-forum. I'd love it for the whole forum site (for myself) - any way to do that? Didn't notice a way to customize forum theme in the settings (of course I've probably gone blind)...

Indeed. And more TC maps please! We don't need yet another TSA heavy server ;)

I agree with both of the above posts.  I would suggest TC_Sandblasted instead of TSA and maybe TC Thunder Rift instead of Mirage.

Profile -> Account Settings -> Look and Layout -> Current Theme (Change) -> 3rd theme option (MWLL)

Please note there is a small bug in the CSS that leaves the Quick-Reply box stretched very far. Not an issue if you do not use the Quick-Reply feature.

That's actually an issue in the HTML code. The CSS code is what makes it right again.

I see. Either way, it sure would be nice if someone fixed it.

Thanks for the clarification. =)

For now I'd suggest yanking Ring of Fire off. Last weekend our large scale play test showed some significant flaws (and some good stuff too). I'll be working through the next version which has been significantly updated. Maybe this coming weekend we can do another big play test on custom maps with the new version and decide if it's ready to go mainstream or not.

>>>I don't want to hijack your thread and make it about Ring of Fire so please respond to this thread in the actual RoF custom maps thread.


W.r.t. 'MWBU Public Server', I think you should only migrate player maps from the custom maps server to public once they are ready for prime-time. You dont want to risk the potential player base when the entire server migrates away because of a bad map.

TSA_Sandblasted and TSA_Mirage get more than enough play time. Too much really.

Maybe TC_UrbanJungle, TC_Sandblasted, and TSA_Frostbite instead?

with the winds of RL and other obligations we have been erratic about making sure a consistent method for map selection and what is on the public vs test server. we are announcing a dedicated server manager/community liaison guy shortly..

TC_DeathValley
TSA_Mirage

Can you give some instructions on how to have the maps uploaded to the MWBU FTP?

As of right now maps have to be submitted in person. We need to be able to review the maps before there in league play just in-case. You can submit them to Toasterpastries, Emylightsaber, Or myself. We might make map updating a monthly/weekly thing it is a pain to update 1 map over 6+ servers and the download site. Maybe make a new map open merch night every week on the day I update all the servers.

Cool. Thanks Globel. Can you (or someone else with permissions) put the new version of Ring of Fire in the rotation. Please set it for TC with 1k tickets per team.

This is the result of a full week of rebuilding the map from the ground up to be more 'mech' friendly with lots of open areas for long range fights (and still some areas which will favor brawlers).

Thanks!
