MicroFort

Post by sinewav »

Here is a server no one asked for but I think fits a need: A condensed Fortress map with Base Respawns playable with just 2-3 members per team.

Why this is good:
  • Respawns kick ass, especially for new players.
  • Tweety's Sumobar is now referred to as the #pickup waiting room. It's pretty disturbing for sumo players to get swamped when a #pickup ends only to have everyone abruptly leave after a couple rounds.
  • You can actually 2v2 in Microfort and it's not horrible.
  • It could be a nice place to train new players or just hang out in-between pickups.
  • Did I mention respawns?
Today this server is in the browser as AoT MicroFort. I'll leave it up a few weeks, but I don't have any hope people will play there because that's never been a thing that happens Armagetron.

Just basic settings, nothing well thought out and tested. It's v1 after all!

Is there a part of the config missing? I just popped in there and there were no zones, no teams, etc. I opened a second client and forced multiplayer mode to be sure, same thing.

I might be wrong but didn't you or someone else make a server like this a few years ago? :) I think I remember playing this, but it might've been a ctwf map.

There are nano and mini CTWF map's that were just scaled down normal fort maps, I always enjoyed the nano ones... if i ever have time I might put up a CTWNF server with those rotated :)

Yes, I remember Nano mode in CTWF but that was not what I was referring to! Maybe the other one though.^^

Yeah, my bad. I had a bad line in the CFG and when I restarted the server it failed to load. Fixed now.
