Hi there. I posted this over on the S2Games forums and was directed here...
I'm currently setting up a new server on my dedi, located in Manchester UK. I've ran a couple of LAN Savage servers before and plenty of 'proper' internet servers for other games (Q3-based, UT2004-based, Soldat, FEAR, etc) but I'm not even going to pretend to know enough about Savage to be able to get a server running with settings that the community expects.
As such, I was wondering if anyone here would be able to give a few pointers/tips. I'm also looking for a few people to give ref/admin access to the server as I won't be around enough to admin it myself.
For server settings the chief things that come to mind are:
* XP rate
- it always seems much higher on the online servers than I used to have on my LAN servers (default setting)
* Extra settings/balance
- anything I should be aware of?
* Mods, other than SFE.
I'm running SFE but is there anything else I should put on there or? If so, please link/advise
to put in the rotation/install on the server. A list of maps to put on rotation would be great. If they're not ones that come with the server package, a link would be good (unless I can just get them from the mapservers linked to in the .cfg files?)
I'd ideally want you to be quite well respected on here and have proven admin/ref experience. Communication skills are also important :p
...I hope that doesn't come across as being too demanding but I'd really like to get a Savage server up and running and in a decent state. We always have Savage games at our 50-man LANs and I'd love for some of our players to have a more permanent home.
