Hey LDA people,

Me and many of the other TM players were wondering if you would change the LDA Server to a LDA Modded Map server.

I got a few maps that I would like to see which you can get at: http://tmmaps.tripod.com/tmmaps/dmindexl.htm

The Killer Boomstickville
TurdHeart's Invader
Sailor's Standoff Ridge
Matrix's Terra Creek
Kevla's Nuclear Winter
Sage's Ninja Starian

and thats about for my list. What els should we have:

not to be a kill joy... but IMHO, LDA should keep their server un-moded and available 24/7. if they could, then maybe start a second moded server, but they should have a very good, fast, regular, reliable server available at all times for new players.

(i know, i know, there aren't many new players lately, but there are others who can more easily host moded games on very good servers, like Hammer...

BTW, thank you, Hammer, and all others who make servers available for us - we really appreciate it!)

Again Sage I ask that you bring it before the forum before you go and ask LDA to change something with the server.Everybody goes there because its stock and its fast and its up all the time.Mods are ok for a while but they get old fast.It ould be nice though to have another permanant server that could handle mods,CTF or whatever.
Thanks man.I'm sure your mods are kick butt.

I checked out the maps and got most of them. But Matrix's Terra Cotta map kept giving me an error when I unzipped it. Can anyone check it out? If I can I'll try and put a game with these maps up for a while.

I agree with you Supe on the overly powerful modded weapons. But are you saying you also get tired of some of the better maps too? There are some real high quality maps that LDA could use if they choose to.

Hey it was Sailor's idea!!! Anyway, not modded weapons, just maps. And the server could have stock a modded maps.

Also, two LDA servers would be nice but I like having only one LDA server, modded or stock.

Yup - the CRC error
( http://www.geocities.com/SiliconValley/Pines/8659/crc.htm )

was caused in the download, me, sailor and kong have checked our files and they all check out 100% - try downloading again guys.

and you got that from the horses mouth

It would be nice to see some modded maps become stock and used on servers,but,I don't see that really happening unless LDA releases a patch that contains the new maps.
LDA is the server with the most traffic and so most everybody coming on will want to go to that server.And some will find that they have to go download several megs of maps to play on it once they get there.That would hurt if you had a 56k or less modem.And then newbies will come and not know to get the URL in the sever comments and I have been seeing a lot of new people coming on the laswt few months.Maybe Sage is asking the wrong question.Maybe we should be asking LDA to make some mod maps offical the include them on their server.I've always said that I wished LDA would make some maps stock.Some are very good.

one really neat idea is to ask LDA if they'd put all the user-made maps in the next release of TM!

you guys put SO MUCH creative work into them - they'd be a great addition to stock TM!!!

But only the maps, *shudders to think of what would happen if some newbie went out adn bought a copy of TM, brought it home, and tried to play, but kept getting killed by swarms of cookie dough while the ground shook from Anti-Flower Power Missles

LoL! good point, GA

but another idea is for LDA to put all the existing mods on the CD as well, with instructions on how to add them!

Hmmm

I'd like to see a TM Classic server from LDA featuring:
- Tank acceleration and friction changed to V1.0 values.
- Weapon guidence change to V1.0 values.
