    OK guys.

    We have 4 servers; #1 is running all maps from the vanilla release; at the moment we're running 3 x 24/7 single map servers...so here's a list of the vanilla maps, now vote your favourites so we can configure the servers to what you guys want!

    Let us know which maps you'd like us to run by voting.

    I'd like to stress the fact to be honest in your answers because it will largely affect our decision-making process! Oh and please do report any bugs/crashes/problems/cheaters/domination hackers on any of the servers to us ASAP.

    I haven't played all maps yet- But so far I really like Zavod 311 and Hainan Resort. They're about the size and play style of the Aftermath maps (medium sized with focus on Infantry and ground vehicles, but 1 or 2 helicopters/jets). And I already have a map which I absolutely hate: Paracel Storm :D I hated it at Gamescom and I hate it in the final game.

    I'll vote tomorrow when I've played all maps :)

    So far I have only been playing on server #1. It seems to crash/restart quite often. Also, please implement the OM member slot system as soon as you get around to it, that's the most important reason (for me at least) for supporting your sacred cause. =)

    Well, all those issues are due to DICE who yet again released a game with broken rcon interface. Those options will be enabled once DICE fixes them. Premium days will start when the functions work. You won't be losing out in the end even if you have donated now. All the donators are on the server's reserved slots list. Aggressive Join is disabled because at the moment if it is active; it puts the server from "normal" to "custom" mode, which is really bad for player traffic. Everything is so buggy and broken at the moment, its incredible. Looks like they didn't learn a lesson from BF3 launch. Oh well, we will power through this!

    EDIT:

    Oh, and servers are very unstable at the moment and DICE are working on a fix. Server version R3 should hopefully be out by tomorrow, otherwise it will be a very long and painful weekend!

    No worries, I'll keep supporting anyways, I really appreciate the community you have created here.
    I noticed that the server sometimes changes map right after a restart, like as to keep going in the map cycle. However, I have yet to play the last 5 maps since the server isn't always doing this after a crash.

    We could change the mapcycle a little. However, if the server crashes then it starts from the start of the mapcycle again. There is no good way of dealing with it. The only Procon plugin that has been approved for BF4 currently is Metabans. Other than that and PBBans the servers are running bareback. PBScreens should be active soon once the support ticket has been dealt with (can't add them myself for some reason)..

    Operation locker crashes every 10min... sucks when the round lasts 11min. I think so far I have managed to play 1 or 2 full rounds on that server.

    Apparently it crashes when a commander deploys a vehicle... on operation locker.. gg dice gg. :p

    My game crashes everytime something explodes (vehicle, grenade, rocket) in close proximity to my location. At the moment the game is unplayable for me. Thank god I didn't pay the full price – but I'm mad as hell anyway.
  15. roge8014 Moderator

    That sucks QQ. Is that even after R3 fix?

    Lets hope the R4 fix actually does something useful :D

    The mapcycle on #1 has been changed so that the maps that haven't been played lately are at the start of the list.

    Votemap plugin has been enabled on #1.

    Randomness = 5 which means that the 4 least played maps are chosen for voting.

    Takes 6 votes for the mapvote to succeed. Premium members votes count 2x.

    These values probably need some fine-tuning so report back if there are any issues.

    After testing I'd say that my client doesn't crash after nearby explosions but rather when playing on 64-servers. I couldn't reproduce any crashes in Conquest and Rush on 16, 24, 32 or 48 player servers. But two to three minutes after I've played on a 64 player server my game crashes and I have to use the task manager to kill the executable. Pretty annoying especially because I can't play on your servers :D

    So I saw a server that got rid of the spectator slots that noone really uses, and got a 68 + 2 player server instead. Would that be an idea? =)
  20. roge8014 Moderator


    lol - I'm known as the resident oM voyeur, I do like to watch some games using the spectator mode. After checking now - 3 of the 4 slots were taken and generally at least one slot is usually used on most of our servers.

    Not saying what you suggested isn't a bad idea, though, I'd just let things settle down first.
