    Map compression

    Yo. Recently played race server. Was voted some map with 500mb size. U know, it's take time (feels same long as soon^tm in this context). So, what about add some compression? Like pure map (lighting to be correct) is 586mb, zipped 491mb, rarred 381. Here for sure some simple to use and free library that u can integrate to client. So, add to publishing process compression. Sounds nothing hard, but giving feeliable good feature.

    From my post in Kovaak's thread: "ZOMBIES": Round based. At the start of each round, 1 player is chosen to be the first "zombie". They have no weapons (except melee), full 200/200 stack, extra speed boost, and are "infected" (basically, they have a bright green "carnage" damage amplifier). As a zombie, you can melee the ground to do a jump but with no self-damage. When the zombie melees someone, the melee'd player doesn't die but also becomes a "zombie". Round ends when either all zombies are dead OR every player is a zombie. You get 1 point for every second you're not a zombie. # of rounds depends on the number of players in the game. "ODDBALL": 10 or 15mins, team or FFA. A "ball" is spawned somewhere on the map and a player can pick it up by walking over it. When they hold the ball, they accumulate points. The person who holds the ball cannot shoot any weapons but they have resist and carnage buffs. They can use the ball to melee. The ball also obeys physics so you can shoot a rocket at it and it'll bounce around. (Basically, this is a rip off of an old Halo 1 game mode.). "KING OF THE HILL": 10 or 15mins, team or FFA. Accumulate points by standing in a given area on a map. "FREEZETAG": You know this one... One more comment and idea. Consider that we have a mode to practice movement (race) and mutators/maps to practice aim (arena, warmup, instagib). But there's no modes/mutators really focused on strategy and timing items. Here's a couple random ideas: "STAY ALIVE" (Mode): Single player. You spawn with 100/100 stack and start taking continuous/steady damage, slowly at first. You accumulate a point for every second you're alive. Then slowly the damage you start taking increases and becomes faster and faster. Therefore, you'd need to be increasingly strategic about what items you pick up. Then have leaderboards per map (like Race) for the # of points accrued. "PAC MAN" (Mutator): Multiplayer. You get points for armors and health, not for frags. Points for armors are based on their damage-resistance (i.e., more points for RA).

    I started this new thread here in reference to Kovaaks "we need to talk..." discussion. This thread is all about the idea of finding and play-testing a new mode, utilising the tools that we already have available to us (just like how we botched in instagib before it was a mutator); therefore trying not to waste developers time with ideas that could be unsuccessful. Having said that, I don't think it would be unreasonable to put forward an argument to the devs towards implementing a perhaps hidden test feature / ruleset / mutator should it be paramount to get a working beta environment going for a new mode, so long as enough interest is gathered. Right! So in the other forum post, in my opinion I saw three viable ideas that could be playtested right now. Using 'capture-pits' as a means to force the map to be played in each specific way. I have quickly modified Promeus' map Skytemples to cater for the three variants: Capture - represents attackers having to get to the enemy (defenders) base and take that flag back to the attackers base, similar to regular CTF. http://s000.tinyupload.com/index.php?file_id=58718908736903488391 Push - This is where the attackers take a flag and push it into the enemy's base, like UT4's mode "FlagCap" http://s000.tinyupload.com/index.php?file_id=41061708048871532109 zRush - This represents Kovaaks suggested mode where any one member of the attacking team must simply get to the defending teams flag. http://s000.tinyupload.com/index.php?file_id=94094345603529066356 I have ALSO converted and uploaded to steam an old map of mine that I felt useless for current ctf, and so was binned long ago, a bit large perhaps especially for zergRush. I have placed extra placed flags that are blocked off with a glass brush, so anyone can simply and quickly convert it to a Push or zRush type mode. http://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=804370302 If anyone has some other ideas and modes that can be manifested in Reflexes current state, I would love to see your idea in .map form if it isn't too difficult to portray. p.s. For the maps I have converted and linked here to work in their most basic form with the least amount of effort from the devs, it would need perhaps a mutator that makes the match a game of two halves. Think about that if you want to suggest a different mode, 'how can the devs make your mode testable in it's most basic form'

    I uploaded these maps to my server and put them on a rotation. It's called "1Flag Prototype Testing Rotation -- Salad Days" It's US East/Central. I left it on instagib to even the playing field, but if there's a lot of interest I can switch it off or to warmup or whatever. Downloading the Skytemple variants from the server does work, but it's kinda slow so you might just want to snag them from the links above and throw them in your map folder. The workshop one is fine obviously.

    well, it wouldn't necessarily involve a full rewrite, but it would involve another layer of code on top of the existing stuff - you'd have to add the stuff so that the game can process the scripts etc. there would also be bugs etc. not to say its not doable etc, but it would take a while to complete and have it working bug free etc. not to mention the documentation needed to allow content creators to start working on modes etc. matchmaking is more about having a queuing system so that games can seamlessly organised and played etc. what would be great would be a sort of mix like you suggest - perhaps an 'official' teammode that is always included in matchmaking, and then a rotating slot for custom gametypes that changes every few weeks or something. that way it exposes new gametypes, allows them to be played and enjoyed etc, without cluttering the queuing system with too many options. ideally we'd get both, a great official teammode, and the ability to make our own with some kind of support from the dev team exposure wise etc. you never know, some genius idea might get cooked up and transform the FPS genre, like other mods have before!

    Map compression

    for now: here is a guide for mappers "how to upload a workshopitem without a lightmap" https://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=892726203 maps by itself are usually only around 1 - 4mb.

    For the Noobs: -More training levels especially for movement (like parkour station 1st floor style) -Better bots that are easy to set up on any map/game mode (co-op too) -Lock competitive mode until hard training levels are completed For the Casuals: -Drop in/out quick play servers -Rematch button and game mode votes available for MM -More than 3 player FFA etc. -New game modes especially slower paced ones like freezetag or 1 life per round stuff For the Pros: -Make "Approved" widgets only for competitive mode -Tier cosmetics/sprays for highest rank reached per season -Rotate maps per season The official release was definitely rushed, but this game is too good for us to let die when all we need to do is make more approachable and advertise it better

    i don't know how gametypes are represented/handled in the game's code but i can't imagine it would require a full rewrite to implement some lua hooks for gametype stuff. furthermore, giving gametype scripting abilities to players is not incompatible with matchmaking. for instance, the devs could have a matchmaking playlist that plays a set of hand-picked popular/good custom gametypes that are cycled out every month or something another thing to keep in mind is that not everyone wants to play matchmaking. i dont like how duel plays in this game and i dont give a shit about it

    We need to talk about the state of the game.

    @bej Single Flag CTF, could use existing symmetrical CTF maps, no need to make new ones specifically for this mode, but only one team's flag spawns per round. Teams would be assigned offense or defense, offense tries to enter the enemy base, take the flag and return it to their own. Basically CS's hostage rescue mode instead of UT's new flag run mode. Teams could switch roles after each round or have multiple rounds per half, doesn't really matter imo. 2 minute rounds? 1:30? Round time would need to be established. Would have a clear objective for new players, but still at least a little depth in deciding if you want to pool all of your defenders at base to protect the flag with numbers or send off an aggressive defender to flank/ambush elsewhere in the map. It would play like Clan Arena without the bullshit spawns and with an added focal point for the action. Don't sit in a corner and wait out the round timer, get to the flag idiot! Also instagib. Actually, because CS has such a fast time-to-kill, if you played this "flag rescue" with instagib, it'd basically be CS but with better movement and no weapon RNG. :thinking:

    while warsow style gametype scripting would ofcourse be really cool - it would probably be more work to implement a fully scriptable system than to make one new gametype. whats more, with the matchmaking/queuing system, you cant have all the gametypes that people make in it. also, warsow had this system doesnt have too many gametypes to show for it, though there are some really cool ones with loads of features and content. the one gametype that eventually was adopted by the dev team and made official; bomb, which is essentially CS with loadouts, was pretty popular, with one or two full public servers and lots of pickups on irc etc. teams formed and cups were run etc. warsow is pretty much dead now though. eitherway, the point is that a good (and bomb was only really decent, nothing too special) 'casual' objective style gametype, that is well supported can be really successful (relatively speaking, it wont suddenly make reflex the top game on steam ofcourse) and get people playing teammodes again... theres definitely an element of this - i think CS/CA style out for the rest of the round is too long though sometimes. 10s-15s of 'downtime' before you get back in the action properly would fit a fast paced game like reflex better. overwatch handles this decently by having a spawn cooldown and you having to walk back to the front - though OW is a bit slow movement wise so it can sometimes take too long sometimes.
