    Why is this server up if nobody is in it? Could we like turn it into anoter ze or something?
    Maybe zm2 again?
    Or a gun game or hide and seek server.
    :question:

      Nuuuuuu~ At least wait till summer. If it doesn't pick up by then I agree, but I really enjoy ZMP when it is full, and I'm hoping it will pick up again after school is finished. It use to be full 24/7.

      I think ZE 2 would just end up the same way (ghost town most of the time), also applies to any 2nd server we're going to have.
      idk how the management are running the servers (contracts, leasing, or are they owned, terms and conditions etc etc)
      Personally if it's possible, imo transforming it into another game's server would be great but not sure if there would be enough people to keep the server in a reasonably filled state

      I actually liked when pF had the gun game server and the hide and seek server was good till it died out.
      the gun game server was fun but it was mostly admins...

        There's no reason to take down ZMP, we can put up more servers if the need arises.

          Although something like surf/bhop mix would be pretty badass in place of it. Even back in the summer, I don't remember ZMP hitting above 20, but it didn't require a lot of resources, right?

          Whenever somebody says ZE 2 server, Brian loses 10 hairs on his head, and grows 1 gray one.

            Questions for management:

            1. Why did we ever stop with zm_impossibru? I thought we had a great thing going and over 8 current maps.

            2. Did we scrap the idea for a bhop/surf/etc. server? I thought we had somethin' cookin' in the kitchen in terms of a new, low-resource server.

            Impossibru was a good idea, but even the impossibru maps that are on the ZM server aren't exactly popular. I mean, i enjoy most of them, but other players don't tend to like them. To get an impossibru server going, we would need many more mappers to make some more impossibru maps.

            Also, although ZMP is empty, we've had to test some maps on there before putting them on the regular ZM server incase it were to crash the server. So, having a spare ZM like server isn't bad for that, but it's still pretty much useless.

            I like the idea of a bhop/surf/etc. server. The MG server currently lacks a lot of surf maps, but a lot of the mini games ones have bhop. Unfortunately on the MG server half the people on there don't know how to bhop. But if there was a bhop/surf server, it would probably kill off MG. If there is going to be another server, it would probably have to be something unrelated to Zombie Mod or Mini Games type things. There are thousands of mods our there, I'm sure we could come up with something a little bit different.

            With that said, Surf, bhop, another ZM or ZE, and Zombie Riot have all been suggested time and time again, but i don't think it's ever worked out for long. So, if anything, try looking into something that is fun and could attract more players, but also doesn't relate to anything PF already has.

            I asked for a ze2 server this summer but roots said NO!!! Also, ZMP was a good server. I don't think it will ever get full like the old days again. All DS have their own server now.

            Maybe I didn't explain it properly. If we wanted more/new servers we could do that, we have the space with or without ZMP so there is no reason to remove it.

            Ze is doing fine atm. but like a gun game or crack house server would be fun i think...

              It's not hurting anything, I like it for occasionally testing illegal spots since we lost ZM2, but there's really just not any point to take it down.

              A waste of what?
