I fully endorse this! Lets try it at once! As for maps... I only remember a few. A cloudsdale map, a Ponyville map, A Sweetapple Acres Map.... and I think there was a Canterlot map once! Uhhh... there is a function where any players can put of pony skins but I am not very tech savvy in that department... and yea... I will see if I can dig up more about what I remember. x.x :derpydd:

I'd like one. I already play on a server that runs a Cloudsdale, Appleloosa and I think its SSA map?

I think this is a good idea (Not my idea.) It'd be fun. Maybe a cap of 32 players?

A nice idea with many things left unsaid.
Who will host? Who will manage it? Will it be public and if so who would moderate it? Will it use plugins? What game modes and maps will it use? Will it be MVM or the usual 2 team games? Will it use annoying custom content?

@Apple Jack: The player cap would depend on the server limitations.

Also, in general, custom maps might look neat but often they're poorly designed in terms of gameplay. Not to mention people have to download them which can be a hassle.

We will host the server, we have plenty of bandwidth and CPU / memory left still.

I just need all the information like what maps, where to get those map, skin, mods, etc, in the rotation and such and all the relevant inform like settings.

Well we could just have it like a trade server where there is no objective. MVM sounds good too, but there can only be 6 players at a time from what I've seen. And map wise, I don't know where to get maps like Cloudsdale or Appleloosa.

I'm personally against MVM, and a trade server. I'm tired of seeing idler/trading/achievement servers. That's not what TF2 is about. At least, what it shouldn't be about.

@Iona & Dragonshy: I agree I: Too many junk servers that serve no purpose. I like MvM myself but the 6 player limitation makes it a bad option IF there's enough players wanting to play.

@Mayday: I can do all that.


I am going to need people to tell me what they want in the server though
We know we want custom pony maps because you are all silly like that. But there's other stuff we can have so if you know what you want post in the thread!

Well I like capture the flag personally. It gives you an objective and you can just mess around if you don't feel like capturing it. We can have game and map rotation though depending on how everypony feels.

Capture the intel is one of the base modes of TF2. We could also have vs Saxton Hale (there's a server I frequent which is modded and is vs Ponyville with each pony having a unique theme and ability to fight the other team with), Death Run, whatever you'd like.

Death run is fun! Not sure what a vs Saxton Hale is. Though, if we do end up doing capture the flag, we should have 2Fort.

Vs Saxton Hale is basically everypony against one (or sometimes two or three, in other mods). everypony has to fight one person who has lots of health, can super jump, and can easily kill somepony in one hit. It's very fun, though, once you get used to it.

I've seen the Vs Saxton Hale. It looks fun. But I've never seen that other one you mentioned, Iona.

Vs Ponyville is basically Vs Saxton Hale, but with characters from the show replacing Hale. Each character has their own unique musical theme (sometimes great, sometimes terrible) and abilities. It's quite a bit of fun.

Ahh. That sounds like fun. We should probably add Vs Ponyville if we can.

We'll definitely have a variety of maps (and therefor game-modes) and we can probably include a saxton hale map too.

The problem with the pony version of Saxton Hale is the server to client download. Sizable and time consuming.

Personally I think it'd be best to let people download their own pony mods for their clients rather than force everypony who joins to sit through a large download.

They're going to have to download stuff, one way or another. May as well have it be one big mod and then not have to download anything else.

I'd never play on the server if we had all those mods. I have incredibly slow internet. The less I have to download, the better. I think it will still be fun without all the pony mods.

I think the server should have voting for the next map. Like after x number of rounds the next map is voted on in game.

Oh wow, didnt expect this to blow up that fast. xD Ummm... lets see here... I know there is a way to incorporate skins into the server to where if you type !skins you can choose pony skins. Not sure how it is done however. x.x
