- 10pm EDT/7pm PDT
- Modded server running in Race mode, simple modifications to weapons made to reduce terrain damage
- - File pack (not required for play): http://home.woh.rr.com/kvorlon/LDA_racing.zip

I'm open to suggestions on start time to get more people to show.

Time change from 8 to 7??
Sounds good for me on THIS side of the country!!
Although, the Master Client still has the start time as 8---soooo--play it by ear??

KV...you need to have the weekly event times whenever it is best for everyone, which will be impossible. I only had them at 8 PM PST because it was the only time I could attend the weekly events. Earlier than that and I was busy with the kids.

Pabilto posted: If you're going to continue these weekly events, you may want to announce that they start 2 hours later (11:00PM eastern)... that was their time before and it seemed that people were more receptive to it.
Hey Pabilto, I was the one that suggested the time should be earlier thinking that more folks might show up.

And here is the hardest part of any scheduled event...someone has got to get folks to come. You have to email, ICQ, and be on the server to remind them to show up. I had to stop doing the server admin job because I could not spend the time necessary to get the folks to show up.

If we want this to succeed, we have to help each other out and get folks to show up. Just today, 5 folks were on LDA and it was a blast.

I will try to show up when possible. Whatever time you pick you must stick to it. Good luck all.

Also, last night there were loads of people playing on LDA normal server, but no one on race. I think having something on, say, tuesday or wednesday only and cycle them like the Sunday event would draw more people. Just my opinion :)

I don't think there are enough players to have daily events and take the effort to gather them...
I tried to help the first time around and that did not work well...but
I think the admin should just emphasize in the Sunday events... they're far more important than daily events. (and less work for admin)
There are 2 fun Sundays that can be used for events such as Racing or whatever else...
It doesn't hurt to have the daily servers on for people to practice/experience with those though.

Pablito, I think the issue is what Rick brought up in the TM Classic thread: running more than 2 servers on a system tends to make it unstable. That means that if we don't have some of these special servers that cycle, we wouldn't have the special servers at all.

That said, perhaps, to ease strain on LDA, we could make it so the 3 special servers cycle by week and are up the entire work week whenever the DDM server isn't up?

Just an idea.

P.S. - kv, don't be a tyrant. We are talking about the servers :)
