[MAP] Arica Harbor Pretty much unknown to Aloha, I just started working on a map for babel a few days ago. I couldn't believe it but it actually was easier to make than I thought. The map is Arica Harbor based from Arica Harbor from BFBC2, which is a bit of a throwback to when aloha had Battlefield servers. I also posted this in the Ace of Spades topic about babel maps. Here are some screenshots of how the map is looking (as of 12/03/2017): http://imgur.com/a/Z4gUf

It came out pretty nice! Anyways, tonight I talked to a few sysadmins, and low and behold this happened:

CapRex allowed me to test out Arica Harbor on the aloha.pk babel server. The test went great! I recorded a video of how the game plays out:

Well, not bad for my first map. I wish some people that weren't there could have gotten to play it, but chances are that when it's updated again tomorrow, it will be played again. The general consensus was that it's a really good map! I only need to make a few minor edits here and there but it's fairly balanced and everyone seemed to enjoy it! Based off of the suggestions I had, and what I want to do, there will be a few updates.

Planned updates
A few more buildings
Props such as tanks and other vehicles
Trees, shrubs and other vegetation
Finishing the rail bridge properly

There's a link to the current map in the description. It's being worked on and is expected to be finalized within the next few days.

Re: Moofin spotted We've all ended up either commenting on a video or ended up IN a video in the background.

Me? I ended up in the background on NeebsGaming, Westie, PhlyDaily and ChaBoyyhd. I might even have appeared as an entry in a Fails Of The Weak episode too, I did appear in the background of a few. My sister is the one who really is tight with famous YouTuber's, Twitch streamers and MC developers. She's tight with a lot of the former Mindcrack people, including OMGChad. She also talks to Dinnerbone and they snapchat each other a lot. Yes. Dinnerbone, the Minecraft developer.

Re: Expanding into new frontiers (Games) I put too much effort into it already, but there is slow expansion to other games happening. The problem? A lot of people here don't have good computers. I've said it before, I have a very nice graphics card and I still play AoS on the rare occasion. However, some people in this community don't really have anything but AoS to play because their computers aren't good enough to play anything but AoS. This is also an international community and there are some people who may not even be able to get the parts to upgrade or build a better PC because of price gouging. I really think that the real reason that Aloha don't want to expand is because there are enough people playing AoS with a decent computer, and the first chance they get at a better game hosted by Aloha, they might just up and forget about it. That's a non-existent problem, plenty of people still play AoS and this is one of the AoS high points right now that we are rolling into.

Let's talk about the Minecraft server, when it was well, functioning correctly. I'd like to say everyone who played it with frequency played AoS a lot less, like almost 70% less of the time. Including the MC server head admin. There are some users who ONLY used the Minecraft server too, and when asked if they wanted to play AoS they basically said  "Fuck no". During that time a lot of newer people showed up in the community and got some time to shine since some of the players on the MC server were very good AoS players, such as: Monduu, asianguy, Torch, Punchdance, FerrariFlunker, TwoDayUDie, israellee, Chappy, Techno and Lone_Wolf. I really thought that it brought more variety to the community. Expansion was a good thing, and it sucks that the MC server got really slow and miserable. What really killed it was a charged creeper farm that someone built. We had almost 10 fully functioning mob farms, I personally had one myself, but when the charged creeper farm was erected by one of the players, almost like, 1k creepers hung around never de-spawning. The server is still there but it is ridiculously laggy.

Re: Server Interest?New Map? Froelich has expressed he does not want to be running a server again. He'd rather enjoy himself. Scipio has been gone for ages, and never did much on the MC server anyways, so that takes care of that option too. It would need to be under new management, and the number of capable people who actually have the time to do that is small. Israellee and Shy can only do so much by themselves, and shy is the one who has the bare basic programming experience needed for MC. The reason the staff doesn't expand past AoS here has been mentioned enough times: there aren't enough people interested in moderating and monitoring something that isn't AoS, because AoS is the #1 focus of this forum.
