Good is so subjective about AA. Play on a few server that seems popular, once you figured out what "good" means for you, you know the setting they use because the game display all the ones it need to change when you log to that server.

Now about making a clone of a server, some people could think it rude if you just went and copied their settings to make another server. If its to learn more about the game, they will probably not mind at all and think its a compliment.

As too making a clone of a good server, there is already a lot of servers out there, so ask yourself "What would I add by making a clone". Try to find your own niche. Maybe it is to offer a "clone" on another continent, so the players from that continent can have a good play experience too. Maybe its something else.

Good luck with your experimentations!

And if you have technical questions, please ask the specifics. We don't know whether the first question you want answered is "What is a computer?" or "How do I tunnel network packets through my router?" :)

All I have to say is if you do make an actual new server, please do something different. Seems that just about all that's left are clones or minor variations on that one—you know that one. Popular does not necessarily equal good (er, argumentum ad populum).

For the game physics settings, all you have to do is watch the "XXX changed from A to B on server order" messages when you connect; it's convenient to make a screenshot. That's what determines the feeling of a server the most. You'll have to deduce the game rule settings (score limit, round limit, teams/no teams) by observation, the server keeps them secret. Secret is slightly wrong word, the client simply does not need to be informed of them.

I just finished the first draft of the server administration guide on the wiki. :)

It doesn't tell you exactly what you're asking, but it's a start.

Lol, one of those big servers that go insanely fast, so fast that it needs like 100000 rubber or something tweaky like that..
Damn, it sure has been a while!

I don’t consider these as good servers at all, try creating a server where rubber and speed is low, you will attract skilled players.

There are a few server settings that where posted in the forum. Some proper search migth turn out much more than this.

Armagoshdarns server settings: http://forums.armagetronad.net/viewtopic.php?p=23#23
The Inner District http://forums.armagetronad.net/viewtopi ... 0075#10075

I'm quite sure if you ask Lucifer, who has administerd or partially administerd Breakfast of *, The Crack Pipe and possibly a few others, he will be happy to share some of them.

Otherwise, contacting the admin of the servers you like could give you some results.
