Ace of Spades Classic / babel rotation
« on: March 08, 2017, 04:49:38 PM HST »
i've noticed a lot of people complaining about maps lately. some, like crossfire3, seem to kill the server every time they're played. i'm going to look at changing up the rotation a little bit and i'd like to start with removing the maps people seem to hate. i'll be asking about this ingame as well and seeing what the most common and strongest opinions are and going from there

once people are generally happy with all the maps in the rotation i think it'll be good to try adding some new maps (http://aloha.pk/index.php?topic=9358.0 is a good place to make suggestions for that, for now. i'll be following while i do this)

Spoiler for maps currently in rotation:
vippers_nes
ruins_onigiri
flower
moon
tradeoff
greenravine
swag2
holes
tunnel-top
ellipsis
stadium
blam
utopia2
moskvababel
islandbabel
pinpoint2
swag1
1river2forts
dedust2x2
icecraft
pinline
frog1.1
abridgetoofar
minihills
toast
turv
crossfire2
bridgeyard
catseyebabel
halongbabel
babelpocalypse
plateau
spitfire
chestren
TowerDive
battlefarm
swag3
babelstairs
driftice
yukon
arenatoofar
waterfrontv2babel
trenches
crossfire3
newfort
turtlesoup
pincushion
nomansland
octopus
binladencompoundv7

please try not to argue with one another, it won't help get anything done quickly. just looking for opinions on which maps should be removed from as many different people as possible and if the thread turns into arguments it'll be needlessly hard to sift through
my own suggestions are turv, pinline, de_dust2x2, babelstairs, crossfire3. i feel less strongly about plateau and ruins_onigiri but still don't enjoy playing them very much.



which maps do you enjoy playing least?

extra! extra! read all about it! / Reflex
« on: September 22, 2014, 02:46:07 PM HST »
hello everybody today i am here to tell you about reflex :-)

it's an arena deathmatch first-person shooter game, currently in a pre-alpha stage of development. the developers have a ton of industry experience and are themselves avid gamers. here's their kickstarter trailer!


seem a lot like quake to you?
it is a lot like quake. one of the developers used to also develop cpma - a hardcore mod for quake 3 which made the game even more fun than vanilla q3.
the reflex developers took cpma's gameplay as a base from which to work and built an entirely new engine for it in their spare time - all three also work fulltime jobs, and they have been spending what time they weren't using to sleep or make money working on this for the last 18 months.

so why play this when you could play quake or any of its innumerable mods?

  • the fast-paced arena fps genre has been slowly dying for several years now. there's a small playerbase spread over far too many mods of quake, and this game has the potential to unite the majority of these players
  • ease of use! a major problem with quake and its various mods has been that it's just too difficult to get into. the developers recognize this and plan on spending a lot of time on making the game accessible and creating high quality built-in tutorials
  • in-game multiplayer map editing. you can make and simultaneously (by yourself or with friends) playtest maps. i don't think i need to explain why this is awesome :)
  • in-game replay editing. fragmovies are easy \:D/
  • dedicated servers and lan support
  • high performance and responsive input (targeting 120fps with 1000hz input sampling)
  • awesome spectator features. multiview, casting overlays, on-screen live statistics, spectator vs spectator interaction
  • steamworks integration - friends, achievements, VoIP, player invites + more
  • bots. one of the developers has decades of experience with ai and has the very ambitious goal of creating the best ai ever seen in an fps game. bots will use the tricks, stats, strategy and spam binds of real players

need more? check out their greenlight! http://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=317361451

apologies for the slightly unreadable text, but here's some info on the developers



i'd just like to say that i have no affiliation with any of the developers but i'm really, really excited for this game and hope you guys are too. help it get greenlit and spread the word! if you're feeling generous you could even help back it on kickstarter

Ace of Spades Classic / [POLL] Remove Crossfire2 from babel's rotation?
« on: February 19, 2014, 06:05:00 PM HST »
Hi! I'm topo and this is a poll! :O

Are you sick of crossfire2? It's this map, if the name isn't immediately familiar:


Personally, I absolutely loathe it. It's the antimap. If you can get into a good position or rush the enemy spawn as a group, the water makes it ridiculously easy to spawnkill an entire team. Towers are near impossible to keep up for any significant span of time, and once they go down people generally stop even attempting to build until the server's numbers drop. It's not a good babel map.

If it turns out most/all of the babel players here share my opinion, it would be my honor to do the deed and nuke the map (or at least any reference to it in the server config) into oblivion.
