I was thinking, we've held zombies for quite some time now and some people have said to me that they miss h&s and want us to go back.
What if we make a transition next month to RPM Hide&Seek, and maybe let 1 or 2 maps stay in the mapcycle with the zombie mod? After all, we originated from h&s and therefore should consider going back, but then there wouldn't be any major zombie servers. We could still have it as a sidegame.
In New York, Concrete jungle where dreams are made of, Theres nothing you can’t do, Now you’re in New York, These streets will make you feel brand new, The lights will inspire you, Lets here it for New York
I would mainly concentrate on H&S. As the best zombie maps (from the standarts) are best for H&S as well.
So maybe do 1-2 zombie games with 1-2 minigames, and rest H&S.
Zombie maps I would suggest: hk4 mp_pra1
One more addition:
Before RPM makes his start back to H&S, I would take a bunch of players, like 10, and mod with them some maps with H&S. I had the best experience with live-player-modding as players are the most important!
4 maps of zombies, minigame, 4 maps oh H&S, minigame, zombies again... and so on.
Sounds good in theory but what looks bad is that if we're going to rename ourself to RPM Hide&Seek again, the mapcycle shouldn't be equally divided with h&s and zombies. Either as we have it now when zombies is the dominant gametype, or we go back to h&s but we keep the funniest maps for zombies by having some kind of vote.
50% h&s and 50% zombies = RPM Hide&Seek/Zombies.
And 1 other strong argument not to have it like that would obviously be our forum URL which is www.RPM-hideseek.com.
We played this map on zombies at the time the mod was created. Lots of people complained about it mainly because of the roof glitch. It's possible to block it but why remove half the map? That's stupid.
As it was a "private mod" which just we had, we could configure and do it like we wanted. As it's up to the public now, we do not have anything special any other server has. And as Zombie Gametype isn't that popular as h&s - and will probably never be cause of sanking player amounts - it would be generally better to stick to an old gametype on which our community used to be based.
I think many people liked the zombie mod as far as it had some various parts of H&S included. As these parts removed, many players left as well.
H&S will be the last standing gametype until yet - depends on 1fx and 2k3, maybe we get a new ownager new one !? - so lets stick to it.
like hitman said 4 zombies 1minigame 4 h&s and other minigame and than other 4 zombies maps and than other 4 h&s maps... i think its the best right now cuz the server is empty lately... so we need variation
