Hello,

I wanted some time ago to make a server dedicated to testing maps.

So pls give me all the custom maps you want to be tested and I put them on the server with this syntax :

MapName ([url=]link[/url])
or
MapName ([url=]download[/url])

I will make all callvotable for testing and debugging Happy

xpfreeze0beta2
xpctf0a
xpctf1-v0
xpmffa0
xpmffa1

Server is up now and running here : Excessive+ Map Testing Server
its ip is : 95.130.10.38:28000

I have put an ftp account for map testers so they can :

  • upload a map by themselves
  • then go on server,
  • callvote rotate
  • callvote the map they have uploaded.

ftp server details :

If a command is missing pls say it.

regards,

great idea.

extwist forum link recommended gametype = freeze tag

exturn same as above, recommended gametype = 1 flag ctf

not the prettiest of maps, but worth a try. if anyone wants to 'fix' any problems with the maps, take your time with it, the forum link also has the needed files.

As its written in readme.txt i tryed to bring 1 of the best tf2 maps to quake, but unfortunally no tf2map to q3map converter exist, so i did all manually with text editor because this way u can see coordinates of brushes and translate them to q3map format. In this map is 5456 brushes and 1242 entities, so u can imagine how long it took time. Textures were compressed from 3MB native size to ~65Kb each. Models converted from .mdl to .md3 . Unfortunally gtkradiant couldnt handle so many models and i left only most important there.

You can see the differnce watching this movie on youtube: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_vwq6igyO4g
