"SERVER LIST & SPECTATORS"

now take a look at this picture:
Image

now if this mod had that kind of server list, it would be extremely user-friendly, and it does ease things up,

now you dont have to filter things, you just choose the options,
theres a official and custom button,if you choose official, you get all the official servers, if you choose custom, you get all the custom servers,

but to do this, the custom server should only run 3rd party maps,
and the official server should only run the official servers,

because it would be senseless if you make 2 type of server list,
when both server list are the same,

so you really need to distinguish the servers,

----------------------------------------------------------

now you see those objective, bodycount, CTF, VIP button...
(there could be more game mode's but its just an example)

now if you click objective, you'll get all the objective servers,
if you click on bodycount, you'll get all the bodycount servers,
and so on...

------------------------------------------------------------------

you can save the servers, and evrytime you click on the [SAVED SERVER]
button, "on the left corner below the screen"

all the servers that you saved will appear in the list, and you should be able to delete

them again afcourse...

and "on the left corner below the screen" you also see [MAIN MENU],
now if you click that you go back to the main menu, duhhhhhhhh

------------------------------------------------------------------------------

down under the screen you should be able to see all the players thats on the server you've clickt on the server list.

---------------------------------------------------------------------------

and down on the right corner of the screen you should see a image of the map, purhaps a loop video, that spectating the map, like rotating and stuff, well you know what i mean,

-------------------------------------------------------------------

any other suggestions or comments?

EDIT: EMPTY SERVERS SHOULDNT APPEAR IN THE LIST,
THEY SHOULD ONLY APPEAR WHEN THERE IS 1 PLAYER ACTIVE ON THAT SERVER,

---------------------------------------------------------------------------

EDIT: and theres is no need to make, BC, CTF, ect. ect. a minimod, it could be added in the

game, way more easier,


----------------------------

theres is no need to have a panel that shows all the pk.files,

like i said on the main forum, the problems are, that this mod supports 3rd party files, if

you dont want those annoying pk files that change your menu, you have to block the 3rd

party files,

or, the devs have to program a new system, that distinguish, map.files, menu.files,

interface.files, ect. ect.

the menu and interface files should be blockt, it cant be change,

this is the only method to block unwanted pk files.

problem with filter is, that its not user friendly for people that never have played this

game,

allot of people dont even know how to install this mod, they probably dont even know how to

filter the servers with the unwanted pk.files.

besides, filtering the server will kinda devide the community,

evryone should feel free to open a server, custom or official,

and evryone should be able to join any server, without having problems with the unwanted pk

files.


just distinguish the map.files, interface.files. menu.files ect. ect.
and lock the interface.files and the menu.files,

problem solved.

and when you join a server, you start with being a spectator right?

now the spectator interface should look something like this:

Maybe do something like AA also where you can easily filter servers by their map. Also a common issue with ET, since some servers use multiple maps, a way to be able to tell which maps are needed for a server would be great.

to make such serverlist like i suggested above with all the panels/features, you will need a programmer than can make programs like Qtracker,

maybe the programmer of Qtracker like to help, devs could ask him for some help, hes kinda active in the Qtracker forum though,

yes, lack of information, and the serverlist i suggested gives players evry detailed information about the server, you can even choose what kinda server list you want, bc, obj, ctf ect. ect.

the serverlist that i suggested is really advanced and userfriendly...

i just want the official maps and the custom maps to be distinguished,
wich makes evrything more easier, sure i can manually hide the custom files, but its all about the default settings, i dont want to hide some servers evrytime i use tc:e, its just unpractical.

impractical*


and the sv_official filter is in. if you turn it on, and exit the game, it will be on until you turn it off.

now thats impractical, next time dont use words that you dont understand,
and check out the features i suggested, use your brains, and think about it, its definetely more practical that that sv_official filter system,

and stop trolling my threads with pointless stuff, before you post something, think 10 times before you post it, cause your starting to annoy me,

I will admit I didn't 100% read your previous posts.

I think a map rotation list/ pk3 list would be a good idea, it would help sort out the 3rd party things that you dislike/like.

but for the player lists and such, it appears to be similar to yahoo's all-seeing eye.

ASE also finds servers a lot more efficiently, quicker, and just a higher ammount in general.




While I don't like your idea Dragon, I also do not dislike it.

It wouldn't bother me if it was implimented, or if it wasn't, purely because something like this would probably require a lot of coding and time, which could be spent on making thet actual game itself better to play. Also, if you just use a 3rd party server browser then you already get a lot more functuality than the standard server browser.

Yes, I know there are people who use the built in browser, and that is up to them. However, if they come posting on the forums and complaining about it, what is it people say? "Try a 3rd party server browser" And then they are happy.





On a side note, you kept saying that people were 'trolling' your threads on the main website, and look where that got you.

If you cannot take people posting their oppinions of your ideas, then just don't post, becuase on a public forum they have every right to post it.

Let me clear that up by saying this: You do not have to take clear bashing/flaming/trolling though, but there is nothing insulting nor derogative you can say if the person is criticising your idea in a constructive manner. (read: not just saying "Its stupid!" with no reasons why they think that.)

0.49's server system doesnt make sense, the mini mods arent even functional, you get the same servers for each game mode, not that i wanna make my suggestion sound impressive or something, but what i've suggested is just way more practical than the current 0.49 server system.
