    Almost every few minutes of every map on the ZE server, I and the other admins are pestered by the players to "nominate mako plz," or "nominate predator plox"
    Of course, these maps are nearly always recently played. Just take a look at this infographic of server time.

    A whopping 21% of time the server was running, it was on Mako/Predator.

    If we were to make ZE#2 into 24/7 Mako/Pred, we would be able to easily increase the population of the second zombie escape server while providing a place for all these players who want to play mako/predator all the time. We would be able to appease a great number of players and finally make use of the nearly dead ZE2.

    Not a bad idea. Maybe add paranoid to that 24/7, but of course keep those on the original server.

    haha penguin, i just said that to ICH in steam :razz: but yes i agree, pred/mako/para on ze2 would be a great idea.

    I've been wanting to look into manual redirection when ZE1 is full, asks players if they want to be redirected to ZE2 and they have to hit a key to accept. Haven't gotten around to this and no one seems to know if it's even possible.

    It has been done, but the only problem with that is it was on the hl1 engine. Never seen it on source though.

    I have.
    I'm 100% sure it's possible, like 100%.

    It just requires people to press a button (F4 I think) to reconnect.
    I'm not sure how to do it though.

    Care to explain why?

    It was on source before OB AFAIK (automatic redirect that is).

    Can still do this.

    Personally I don't think this is a good Idea.

    Well I guess since Kyle said he can do it we should. That would work out great for ZE2

    The creator of Predator, Luffaren, explicitly asked us not to overplay his map. By doing this request, we would be doing that to the most extreme extent.

    I would love to see this but in the grand scheme it is bad as it would drive half of our base into another server. That is bad because certain maps requite more zombies to make it enjoyable.

    I do not think we should make any "this map only" server...as above, Luff did not want his map over played.

    Aside from that. Part of what makes it so popular is that its NOT overplayed.

    I've always been for general servers, not "this map only" server

    I'd say leave it to the majority. Predator seems heavily overplayed already :/

    Pred and mako are the most over played maps on our ze server. They get extend god knows how long. Honestly you would get less people on a 24/7 mako/pred/para server than our ze server. Sure people will enjoy for the few first hours then get bored of it after a while. I like the redirect idea though for when ze1 is full.
