Hey Pulp Community,

I wanted to ask you guys if you could possibly upload an old map I made to the Pulp 24/7 Orange Server. It's already on fpsbanana and it's called cp_orange_evolution_x3. Many minor changes have been made to the original which I'm hoping will attract many more players to the server. Try it, test it, and tell me what you guys think.

Here is the link to my map on fpsbanana: http://www.fpsbanana.com/maps/142737

Hello Syn, at the moment we only run orange_x3 on the orange server because every time we switch to a better/other map the whole server goes empty. However there were plans for a second Orange Rotation Week/Weekend so we'll keep it in mind for that.

Map related question, why are there resupply cabinets outside spawn? Couldn't you just fix the spawn entry like I did here: http://forum.pulpfortress.com/video-games-f35/cp_orange_epps-current-state-released-t1506.htm

Like I said about 200 pixels above your post, we only run orange_x3 on the orange server because every time we switch to a better/other map the whole server goes empty. I guess people just hate improved versions that are not a donator snipefest. However I am still game for a second orange rotation week.

Let the server empty. We'll still repopulate it. It will populate again in time and we'll all have more fun.

Lets first we are able to populate the rotation server before we have two servers we have to populate.

Thanks for the map suggestion Syn, im sure we will do a orange rotation on the public server soon. We should tryout epps map, tendo's and this one?

Hello guys,

Okay so these are the questions and concerns that you guys have written out and I just wanted to address each one.

Epps said: Map related question, why are there resupply cabinets outside spawn?

A: There are resupply cabinets outside spawn because I wanted the team who owns it to be able to get full health again. So only a blu team member can resupply at his/ her cabinet and not on the red, vice versa. The main vantage here is to make it feel like you're not helpless especially if there is no medic on your team and you really need some health. I don't know if that completely answers your question but reply if I didn't.

Eraserhead said: Lets first we are able to populate the rotation server before we have two servers we have to populate.

A: I'd be happy to help populate any time I can. IP address would be nice for the rotation server.

Young Greezy - Let the server empty. We'll still repopulate it. It will populate again in time and we'll all have more fun.

A: Everytime I play the 24/7 orange server I see regular comers and I don't think it'll be a huge problem if we switched maps but judging from what Epps said about it emptying everytime, I'm mostly likely wrong. However, what we could do is do a vote or poll to find out if the people want the new maps, Epps, Tendo's, and mine. And if they don't we could do the rotation server idea on weekdays/weekends etc.

I tried to answer everything that I could but probably not all the concerns you guys had. Reply back so I know what you guys are thinking.

Hey Syn, I was mostly referring to the maps we ran during the orange rotation week. There were just less people joining when we didn't had orange_x3 on. As for the resupply cabinets, I would rather see them remaining inside spawn with a decent spawn door (and no open holes as in orange_x3) but that's just a personal matter I guess.

Syn, if you want to add something to your post you can just edit it so you don't have to double post Smile .

Hey guys,
After long and hard thinking I've kinda-sorta figured something out: two things.

1. Pulp members generally like cp_orange_x3, except when it comes to sniping. However, I was just on the other topic on the new CP2 camper mod topic, which I believed would've virtually fixed this, but I'm still thinking that some pulp members are still unsure even with this mod so that's why there are pulp-created variates of orange_x3. In other words, because of the ability to kill easily with CP2 camper, orange variations started popping up. (If I am mistaken tell me.)

2. But I think the most important thing to understand are the players. I've looked at the pics of Epps's map and magnificent as it was, not to mention creative (secret area ftw!), it might not appeal to the frequent players who play all the time. The average player is more used to something they recognize and I know the variations that the pulp members created aren't that different, but little changes go a long way.

Conclusion: I think it's come down to the small things. The ability to go into enemy spawn, the jumping into the windows, and the vastness and easy sniping of orange. There are all flaws which, in my opinion, made orange so great. Where else, in any map could you do this? Not that much. I think that's what attracted many players to orange. So when new orange variations pop up many people don't like them because the people aren't used to them and favor the traditional orange. And although I see these problems, I believe pulp is prepared for them. You guys have voteheadshot, and votescramble and all these votes it balances the game and the map, more often than not anyways.
