I run a few rtcw and 1 Enemy Territory server I have recently added a wild west server and have a few requests that I feel will enhance the gameplay and maybe make the mod a bit more popular.Most of the suggestions are just for admin controls right now there are just the pb commands and standard rtcw options.Almost nobody plays standard rtcw anymore its all shrub,bani,or osp mods.The main reason these mods are so popular is because of the controls they give the admin to set up server settings and enforce their set of rules.I think ww could do well by using some of these command and I will list what I feel is needed to be able to run a wild west server better.

1) admin should have a cancel vote command (It sucks to have vote wars or not be able to stop votes on people you know have done no wrong)

2) a shuffle teams vote would be nice to break up stacked teams

3)a private message system

4) weapon limitations (be able to limit soldier weapons like musket and gatling gun)

These are the main ones that could really help running a server.I run limited life servers and more admin controls are really needed for them.there are many other things such as setting at late join limit and class limitations that i also think would be useful and not require too much code writing (eerrr I think) but if you could add any of these thing I and many other players would be thankful.

Hi, yes I do intend to add some admin features, in-fact all that you have mentioned above (except private messaging) are on our wish list :) My first priority with the development of the WildWest was to get a fully working / balanced & bug free mod released. It would be nice if we could convince Shub to port his mod over to WildWest, as I hate re-inventing the wheel :) Hewster

Wow thanks for the quick reply! I am happy that you are working on these issues do you have any time frame in mind.I also wish shrub would just port hi mod to wild west but he is probably busy with enemy territory. 1 other suggestion if I may....please make the mounted mg overheat like the one the soldier carries.This weapon is way too accurate to allow it to just be fired non stop in my opinion.With the time it takes for the sniper to shoulder then steady the rifle it would be nice if there was a break in the mg fire wether from overheating or to reload. I hope Im not sounding like a ingrate with my suggestions I like ww and you have done a brilliant job .I am just voicing what would help me run my server and add to gameplay enjoyment :)

That is a good suggestion. I'm not sure you're the first to make it, but I like the idea :). Post it in the RtWW thread, which is ideas for the next version.

yup snot, I've also been hinting for some of these features too. But we needed to get the basics done first. I have a thread titled RtWW wish list and feel free to add any and everything you think would make the Ideal Wild West game there. I'm hoping to have more suggestions than we can deal with, and also give us folks on design team an idea what the public is looking for.
