TF2 servers suggestions


Recommended Posts

  • Developer

So some of you know that we have a TF2 server, and it's actually been running for over a year now. It's hardly ever used for anything and I'd like to change that.

 

I'm looking to get some suggestions or other feedback for our servers.

I soon want to run more than 1 server so it's not just "stock valve maps" like the current one is.

 

Some examples:

  • Game modes to run on other servers
  • People to moderate and promote the servers via raffles or other places
  • Any plugins or other technical things
  • Events that we can run and give away items during
  • Anything else really

 

Possible things already suggested:

  • EU vanilla server
  • Class Wars game mode
  • Freak fortress game mode

 

Server 2 will become a custom/workshop maps server, if you have any that you like suggest them here:

Game Mode: I don't know if it's coded or exists, but one where it makes everyone's class the same.

It would give a lot of fun matches, such as everyone being Scout or Medic. Kinda like Muselk's zombies.

Give me my Heavy rally.

 

And sometimes we could have a free-for-all match, where last person standing wins a prize.

Because of the casual controversy i think vanilla would be fine. Maybe have a join button for the server on the website?

 

edit: workshop maps would be nice. Maybe have a system so mappers can playtest there maps on the server.

edit 2: lol didn't see the server button... that's nice. :)

It exists and is called Class Wars.

Minigame plugins that might get some attraction:

 

  • Freak Fortress
  • Randomizer
  • TF2Ware
  • Zombies

 

Other things that may gain attraction:

 

  • Just having a server run only custom maps

 

Ideas that could work in a "Giveaway" type of thing

 

  • Sharks n Minnows ~

The versions i have seen are just either;

A sniper/s who tries to shoot the scouts, last one alive wins.

A demo/s who charge and try to kill the scouts with the last one winning.

 

  • Hide n Seek ~

 

Well, as the name implies.

You have 1 team/person who seeks and 1 team who hides. Last one alive would win.

Whether it be plugin based; to where you could "Disguise" as objects.

Or just use the classes normally to just hide on a map.

 

 

 

 

Hope these ideas help out.

Someone mentioned custom gamemodes, and I think that would be great! It would be a very nice rally to scrap.tf, as it basically advertises the website to the players. Muselk's Zombie gamemode, as Ezekiel mentioned earlier, is a fun one, but unfortunately, only M Garden (Muselk) servers run that, and they're pretty much always full. I'd love something other than TF2Ware and x10 randomizer. Something new and interesting.

Is it possible for servers to cycle custom gamemodes? We could have a server that switches occasionally.

 

Only with some game modes, like ones that run on specific maps.

I would think running multiple game modes that run on any map would be hard to do.

I think that it'd be fun if every once in a while there was some kind of rewarding system to players who topscore at the end of rounds.

 

I also have always wanted to see if a "Battleships" mode would work in tf2.

There is such a mode. I've played it before. Very fun, It's only a map though, and not a gamemode.

Yeah, what if we had a hide and seek (or sharks and minnows, or something similar) where you could put an item in the pot to be "it" and then the last person standing received the item? In between rounds it could just be a DM.

You should run a "Spies and Pyros" server.
For those who don't know what Spies and Pyros is, it is a gamemode where spies go and hide and pyros have to find them and kill them.

Spies win if they are not found in a certain amount of time.

Pyros win if they kill all the spies.
