Hi,

I've mainly been playing on hslan.de, but noticed that there are about 3-4 consistently occupied FH servers, while a lot of potentially good ones are mostly empty. Maybe some of the admins of empty servers with decent performance/good net would consider turning these into theme map servers?

For example, I miss Pacific maps--they seem to be fairly unpopular with a lot of the mainstream FH crowd, so people drop out whenever one comes along in a map rotation, but I see enough people (myself included) whining about wanting more Pacific maps to maybe make this worthwhile.

There are loads of servers with a full map cycle, or with mainly European theater maps. It would be very cool, though, to have a fast, well-administered server catering to those players with more, uh, exotic tastes.

For that matter, an all-desert maps cycle, all-Western front, all-Eastern front, etc. might be pretty popular as well. Note that I'm not trying to talk WOLF or hslan or other admins of full servers into changing their concepts, just throwing up an idea for those of you with less popular servers.

problem is most of the servers with many players are running the same maps over and over for example you nearly never see makin or saipan

Or perhaps if on eof the big server operators rotated their map lists every couple of days, for example eastern front on monday and tuesday, western front wednesday and thursday etc etc.

Ok, well I'm a server admin of Forgotten Maps - the idea of a themed server sounds good and it is annoying how all the popular servers always run the same maps. What theme would people like?

If you want Pacific themed servers, wait till 0.7. It's got some neat new or at least remade pacific maps. Saipan and Midway are examples. Saian seems too get extremely fun. Especially with those tunnels!

Ok, just a quick note to say the ForgottenMaps server is now running a Pacific maps only rotation. Head on over to 81.169.130.208:14567 folks!
