Soldat Forums.com 16 slot WM Server
« on: November 17, 2006, 03:12:22 pm »
Finally we have a SoldatForums.com server up and running!

You can view the status and settings of the server at http://rentals.u13.net/cpgui/vitals.php?username=soldatforums&server=customwm&comingfrom=settings

Please recommend maps for us to use.¬  The server uses the WM from the Weapons Mod Discussion forum, so give feedback on weapon balance settings there.¬  The idea is to use this server for fun as well as to help test out weapons balance settings.

As you can see if you look at that page now, the server is running with very few default maps.¬  Upon recommendation, we'll look into adding custom maps that you recommend.


We also have one more server we can put up right now, so feel free to make suggestions about what the second server is used for.

The server is at:
IP: soldatforums.com¬  (67.106.77.193)
Port: 30029
Game Password: mash



Both servers are being donated by u13.net.¬ 
Feel free to donate to help cover the monthly costs of running them, though it isn't required.
Donations can be sent to rentals@u13.net with the title "SF.com server donation"

And for the second server: Pointmatch or Hold the flag. Ploxxx.

Dammmmn right my nizzle.

About friggin' time you done this too! nice one luv, you're a proper star. I demand applaud-spamming on our lovable forum host.

...I wouldn't mind a pointmatch too, if even just to see if it'd get used. I really love that mode.

Yeah, I was intentionally waiting to set up the soldatforums server until we had our rentals control panel completely set up and working.  We've put some finishing touches on the control panel in the past week or two, so I decided to do it now.

I don't think using that wm is a good idea, but let playing prove me wrong :)

I'll edit once I check it out.


Cool server, though I'd like to suggest a few things;

- The limits are pretty weird, too little caps and too much time. Maybe compromise it by a timelimit of 15 with a cap limit of 10, or both limits to ten?
- Four nades leave room for serious nadespam, though until that's a problem it could stay as it is.
- The map rotation is poor? I think not every default map is on the server, which is a nono. I want nuubia dammit!
- Maybe have a TS/Vent server, with it's address sent in the server message? Some serious fun that'd be!
- Some maps that'd be cool:
 Ruins|D/l
Oracle|D/l
Lazycolores|D/l
Division|D/l
Karpat|D/l
Conquest|D/l

Good initiative, hopefully we can get a server back, similar to the DNA-server.

( And I'd also go for a PM-server as the second one, just to see if it might become any popular ( speaking from experience, the odds will be rather low though ))

I say give the minimi a bit more power(Not too much but at least don't make it weaker then it was) Give the ruger some bink, slow down the law a good amount. Those are the only major changes needed.

Woo, played a bit today and it was fun. I hope there will be an euro server for Soldatforums one day. :)

Can't really comment on balance since I didn't play with many weapons and only played briefly.

Did you read my first post?  I said that I just threw some maps on there for now and plan to have the rotation eventually be mostly custom maps once people recommend them.

There is already a TS server at soldatforums.com  I'll add this to the welcome messages

Alright, everyone should be voicing their opinions on suggested maps so that I don't just randomly have to choose ones that I think are decent

slow the law down? why?
The ak and mp5 are even more lower damage? why?

No custom maps added please, just the normal ones.

To my knowlege this is the only server that uses bonuses

This is what the weapon balance discussion forums are now for.  This WM is pulled right from the one in the sticky for that forum.  Voice your opinions there and perhaps we'll see changes made

I say give the minimi a bit more power(Not too much but at least don't make it weaker then it was) Give the ruger some bink, slow down the law a good amount. Those are the only major changes needed.

Go to the WM forums for suggestions like this.
ya the aug is fine, but AK and minimi have reduced damage if i remember correctly

Yeah balance needs to be worked out....


I found the automatic weapons unused. The only weapons people used a lot were the Barret, SPAS, Ruger and M79.


Which isn't anything new.

I was playing last night and a fair amount of people were using autos.  I think the autos are in a good position in the balance in this server so far and I think that people should play 5 or 6 times in there with different people to really see what they notice about weapon usage, not just once.  People don't always play with certain weapons because they think they're powerful... a lot of people just have preferences for which weapons they like (like me)

--edit--
<FliesLikeABrick> that was awesomely fun
<Pienne> ?
<FliesLikeABrick> I haven't played soldat for more than 15 or 20 minutes in a very, very long time... a year or two
<FliesLikeABrick> I was just in the SF server for about 3 hours

I think this server just made me an active player again... I have a feeling it'll have the same effect on a bunch of oldies

-- edit again --
I added ruins but had to take ctf_taurus out because it causes everyone to have very low FPS (mine dropped from 50 to 30, just about everyone else saw a similar result)

Anyway, this server rules. Only people who come here (about 25% of the Soldat population?) will know how to get in, so it filters out all of the complete idiots.

even less, I'd say only 10% of the Soldat players around the world come to these forums.  Maybe 5-10% of the people registered here will play on that server, at first right away

I really, really wanted to play in that server, but since it uses original maps, I can't.
Because my soldat has a annoying bug, that whenever I enter in servers that use original maps, the game takes me out of the server and then I get the message: "wrong map version detected". I don't even change the maps with mapmakers.

Redownload the full package of the latest Soldat version, I bet it'd fix it.

Also a silly suggestion: Set the points for capture thingy to 0 to keep it fun and encourage teamwork a tidbit more.

My only beef with the server besides the WM is the lag difference between people in the states and people in Europe. Two people with 200+ pings can pretty much beat five people from the states with -80 pings no problem in normal mode.

Welcome to Soldat, it works both ways you know. Or do you think that higher ping means I get higher health and live happily ever after? Oh wait, wouldn't that mean that a lot of clan players would just start downloading stuff so they get higher pings and thus an advantage?

It doesn't work that way, at all. 200 ping means that it'll take 0.2 seconds for your shot to get to me, so you have to aim where I'll be 0.2 from now. And it works the other way around aswell - plus it's hell of annoying with grenades, as they don't kill on leghits as they usually do. Now that is a disadvantage, especially for a guy like me who used them as his main killing tool for years.

Now, stop whining and live with it. Have a nice day.

Anyone who thinks lag is advantageous should get their facts right. Not only because it's a really ridiculous argument but because you have no idea how lag works. Are you seriously childish enough to assume it only affects your side? Come on, logic ahoy. Do you think the person with high ping can kill you any better? In fact, it's even harder. Try to play on a server where you have ~200 ping and see for yourself. For the sake of your argument you can lie about it but about everyone who has played intercontinental matches know that it's easier to play when you aren't the one with high ping.

RULE OF INTARWEBS: less ping = better

Hey 1010011010, I don't know if you haven't noticed but there isn't an European Soldat Forums server. So how about you stop this and get better because if you get owned by people with 200 ping, they would rape you three times harder with normal pings.

Sorry for sounding a bit rude and all but I'm so fed up with some people blaming everything on lag.

The fact is that latency works both way.  It makes it harder to hit people just as much as it makes it harder for people to hit you (for their "shots to count/register")

This is the way it is.  If you don't like it, stick to console games offline.

Flies, nice one on setting up this server. Might have to get Soldat up and running again to have a few rounds in it. Hopefully this will help bring forumers closer. Everyone seemed way happier when we had the old DNA server up.

However, I think you should move this topic to a forum which requires membership to view. That way we can at least, to some extent, create a server used exclusively by forumers rather than unknown people.

Sounds good, I shall deliberate on where to put it.  Ideally we'd have a separate forum just for the forums, but most of us agree that yet another forum is not what we need.  We have discussed some other options and will hopefully arrive at a decision soon.

Thanks for the comment, I hope to see you there.  I'm stunned at how quickly this server got me playing soldat again.. a lot.

Put in ctf_Ruins, ctf_Oracle, and ctf_Division. Trust me, they are all excellent levels (you can always remove 'em anyways if you don't like them, there's no harm done).

New thread for custom-map disc.? This thread seems a bit too spammy to wade out the posts.

I think I'll swing by this server occasionally in the future :)

Ruins is already in the rotation, and I second the other two map suggestions. Love 'em both, especially Division.

Keep in mind that's not the official and working wep balance you're testing. So all gameplay there only counts if you refrain from using deagles, ak, steyr, spas, ruger, m79, barret, minimi, minigun, sock, chainsaw ...and no such are present at the server.

Oh, and stay away from nades too...

Am I giving the Minimi a bad image by getting lots of kills with it? Maybe I should purposely suck with it so that it looks underpowered¬  :P

The server is nice, but settings are a bit noobish (4 nades, lots of bonuses, I'm not against bonuses but not that many) and pings are a bit to high for european players but that's obvious if the server is in USA... And usually the server is empty. So it's not yet like the old DNAGames server, but maybe some day it will be...

If the day comes that I can afford to rent a server or rack space somewhere in the EU, there will be european servers.  All of the money from U13 rentals/webhosting/donations goes into paying for the servers I've bought for this stuff as well as paying my monthly fees

I tried !hacker but it asked me to give a name, and...Most retarded name I'd ever seen, would've taken me a year to type it.

I suggest adding !admin and getting rid of !hacker.
Regarding the balance, the minigun is overpowered. That is all.

The choice of maps in the rotation isn't good.¬  I don't like most of the maps, they have too much scenery and the gameplay isn't great.¬  I suggest the server have the same settings as U13, default settings and maps.
