I liked dm12, games were long, but fun.
Also q3dm20 and 21 would be nice.

q3dm12 is too big and labyrinthine, the duration of the games over there ended up boring everyone...

q3dm15 remains a good option according to the comments of the participants in the discussion...

pity that q3tourney5 is not validated because of its fog because it is a nice map played...

I also really like Blood Run ztn3tourney1 and ztn3tourney2 which would surely be appreciated by many players...

Japanese Castles by g1zm0 is also a good map...

and just for this summer, to be a change of scenery, for those who are not going on vacation, I propose "Bones and Pieces of Eight by Blurr" ;) 8-)

ok, rotation adjusted now, let me know how you see that then. to be safe, I turned glacius to permanent 24/7 mode so far as contingency in case somebody just register here to request overkill (i.e. one number answer 27963) and I left UnFreeZe2 unchanged as fail-safe until the changes don't "consolidate".

@Adminless thank you very much for the changes and the possibility to vote for or against these changes... :clap: :thumbup:

Could you specify what are these changes (maps, rotation, etc...) and on which servers fps.classico

thank you in advance ;)

I just added q3dm1, q3dm10, q3dm16 and q3dm15 to the UnFreeZe1 rotation as discussed/requested here (depending on the server load obviously, that's it q3dm1 isn't gonna load with any significant amount of people nor q3dm15 is gonna run on a empty server for example). UnFreeZe2 remained unchanged to be safe and UnFreeZe3 was set in glacius mode 24/7 as contingency to immediately answer with one single number (27963) any potential recurrent waves of custom maps requests that may arise from this. additionally the rotation loads/ratios of the main server rotation changed obviously to accommodate the new maps so overall it may vary as well. anyways, as said, initially I think that unless a major issue this should run at least for a couple of weeks and then be evaluated again by then depending on the feedback/voting and so.

yes as said the randomization is probably not as good (polished) as before. thanks for the input.

I have to add about the bug on q3dm15, namely above the pendulum room, and you can get killed by the ceiling anyway. Besides, I have not seen q3dm10 and q3dm16 maps even once today. probably need to consider q3dm15

I don't really know what you mean but the pendulum killing you on dm15 isn't really a "bug" is the way that map is supposed to be I guess. as said, the maps load depending on number of people, q3dm10/16 are both medium size maps hence they will only load at the 14/16 players max range (similar to dm13 btw, thing is that obviously if 10 people connect just 283 frames after it showed then sure in a few rounds it will get on twenties but under no circumstance because the server load it for that amount of people, let's make that very clear again just in case). so q3dm10 loaded once this morning for example and I'd expect them both (dm10/16) to load more times at the night. at "prime time" with the server doing if not 22, 21 almost all the time is obvious outside of the top maps your chances of playing those maps are minimal as it couldn't be otherwise. for the rest as far as I saw there was only two instances of repeated maps so far q3dm15 and dm6 once each, that's normal at this stage of the modification as said. for the rest I'm not aware of any other issues, I thing the changes worked as expected. btw just as a reminder as usual remember that you can change your vote at the poll at any time if somebody change their mind later on as long as the poll is still open obviously.

ok thanks for the quick reply! so I meant death from those pendulums in the basement without having to be in this room, but it seems easy to avoid.

q3dm15 map works fine, people don't come out while playing. it is not played often on the server which was the intended purpose. q3dm8 also seems to be randomized by the server more often which is also a plus. even probably the people's favorite pro-q3dm6 is a bit more common and probably everyone is happy about it! . but probably q3dm14 occurs far too often in a half full server. the chance to play the map spacius, with 10 - 12 people on the server and the possibility of drawing a map for a smaller number of people (3/4 server maps) is very low. could the priority of the draw in the case of the q3dm14 map be reduced so that it could be played with more people than in the case of q3dm7 and pro-q3dm6?
