Possible 2nd server.
« on: May 05, 2008, 04:27:30 PM »
I will most likely soon be hosting a 2nd server either for zm or another game.
I'm not exactly sure how much players I can hold as I'm somehow getting more speed then I'm paying for...
Any way I should be able to hold 24 at least so I was thinking to host two 13 player slot ZM servers with one reserved slot. Right now I'm not sure if I should either host 2 zm servers or find another game to host a server for. I was thinking about ZM or DIPRIP myself or perhaps PVK 2 as those game work great or even better without a high slot server.

Also if a 2nd ZM server is this case what would you like it to be ? Same as the current one or perhaps with the new FX hack with faster zombies and stuff or perhaps something else you have in mind, let me know.

Your idea's are most welcome here  :headhug

i suggest maybe a smaller zm server for a while, and then change that to a left4dead server

Well. If I were you, I wouldn't make another ZM server, the PvK II sounds good, eh..
When L4D comes out, would be nice to have an Ice Cave server, to continue the zombo'h tradition. But that'd maybe be a slot waste. Tell me your opinions.. (all of you :P )

Not sure about L4D. The game will probably be fun just wondering if a dedicated server will have any use on that game as most will probably only play with friends ?
Also I'll be doing a stress test soon to find out how much slots I can maximum handle, would be easier to make a decision to know how much I can exactly handle. I believe pvk should work with 12 but preferably 18 ?

Or IOSS (International Online Soccer: Source) :P - would be best with 10 slots or less

i think wait until L4D comes out, then see if it would really benefit from a dedicated server, or if that would be silly

just be sure to make non vac xD

Tbh you should either make another server but for something a bit less zombeyey or maybe even sourceforts or something.

Or save your money.

Althought the Fx hack would be awsome xD

Is there a way to add new zombies yet, ya know script them get models for them etc.

Empires would be sweet but the downside is that it needs a large player server to work I believe ?
Haven't played hiddens yet myself though.

ZPS sucks. Empires needs a lot of slots and it would be a huge problem to make people play HERE. And Hidden is boring :P
