This week's map selection comes from the list on STA-TF2
. Some of these are already on the server, but theres a bunch I haven't seen, on server browsers, or FPS Banana.
- Dustbowl style AD map
- sort of like starship, but with only 4 cap points, the two middle ones are open at all times, and you need all 4 to win.
- smells fishy, but Im willing to take a gamble on it ;)
In other news, ScottyG changed all the files on the download URL from bsps, to bz2s. This greatly improves the compression ratio on all maps, since source knows how to unzip these files. This makes a map like studio go from almost 60 megs to 20, a much better download. So you can feel free to rtv to lesser known customs or larger customs with less fear of people dropping due to large files. I think this makes the largest overall download 35 megs, which would be steel, 20 for the map and 15 for the video.
