Change to nominations?

    So recently the server has crashed a lot. Which is fine but the problem I see is that 1 person gets to keep re nominating the same map after it was just played 30 minutes ago. Without naming names, there are 2 people on zm that nominate probably 70 percent of the maps played when they are on and they are chosen because everyone just spams one. This is because they are the first to type nominate and have super fast computers.

    I would suggest that maybe each nomination has a random chance of being the first option so that 2 players don't run the server for the maps played.

    I would like to hear thoughts about this as well

      1) Open up console
      2) bind x "say @nominate ze/zm_map_vx_x"
      3) When it says "Sending Client Info" in the loading screen, start spamming your bound button.
      4) Change your nomination.

      Super fast computers has nothing to do with loading times here.

        As kloud stated you can bind the nomination to a key so you can nominate quicker. I don't think we need a randomizing nomination because the people who nominate first should get the first nomination.

        Also yeah, that whole reset server thing I mean it does pose a question but usually it hasn't bother to a whole big extend. But playing mako 3 time in a row that one time drove me crazy. There is also this thing called "Admin Common Standards" which is if, a level 3+ admin, should do a nomination, if she/he/it was present , for yet to be played maps. Trying to at least give a variety between server restarts.

        Cheep method that work when your actually ingame and fully loaded by SM :razz:
        75% of the time I load before source-mod/access does, so I get "you dont have access to this command" spammed in my console when I do this before I actually get the access. Defeats the point of an SSD lel

        Also, 1 key press only or nubz.


        And yea, nominations should get randomized regardless of nom position

          binding nominations would work fine if you get on the server fast enough.

          Also randomizing the nominations would provide for more variety.

          unless there people shouting on the mic spam 1 or any other number. What about an auto mute when vote comes up then everyone is unmute when vote over?

          well generally just people spam 1 even when nobody says anything but that would be a step in the right direction.

            I think @Detonator is still working on a voting randomization to keep things interesting. I tagged him because I am not sure if it is still a work in progress; I have only seen it in testing and it had promising results.

              i would be fine with the nomination the way they are…just if we can get rid of so many panic maps…and 4-way tunnel…then i wouldn't see any problems w/the nominations or rotations

                I like the panic maps and I also like 4-way. I would be deeply saddened if they were removed.

                i like panic maps too...but i think there are just too many of them...i literally went frm one panic map to another to another one time...bc everyone kept voting on them even when the map was the first choice

                The plugin is sort of finished. I'm still new to plugin writing and make mistakes so plugin still needs to be looked over by Kyle. Unfortunately he is quite busy with other larger projects; his time is limited. So until then, soldier on folks!

                  @Detonator thank you for the update I was able to pick 80 percent of the maps on today with just my nomination glad someone has already come up with something and just needs some final touches.
