Map Voting
« on: January 05, 2018, 11:16:36 pm »
With more maps on the way i'm sure people will want to play them more often than the current maps, and not everyone has the time to play through the whole server rotation.

Can we get a map voting system, preferably one that can be disabled by admins for custom servers?

+1, maybe if we are given 3 options in the chat when the current game is about to finish and the map with the most votes will be next up.

For example:
Type 1 if you want Grassy Plains
Type 2 if you want Tahir Desert
Type 3 if you want Snowy Plains

That would be one way to do it, but a screen with choices would look more polished

Oh yeah definitely, that would be preferred - but for now in the early stages, a chat command would work fine...!

Only thing must be considered - generaly people tend to vote same favorite map (or couple of maps) again and again, so some "unpopular" maps can be almost dropped off from rotation (not good thing too).

Kind of system to prevent this must be made (like no more repeats then X in Y time), at least for official public ones.

The victory screen could be a canvas with some buttons on it. Just let players click on the next map they want.

Regarding public servers, it would have to require a large percentage of the current server population to change (60% off the top of my head but this is entirely up for debate) and would also need some kind of system to prevent the same few maps been voted for over and over again. Like Mousecatcher says people will otherwise just vote for the same popular maps over and over leaving other maps in the dustbin of neglection.

Agreed,  Similar to how it looks on GTA V when voting on a map or game mode to play.

It would help the conveyor belt map cycle that we have at the moment.

exactly, maybe have it like that:
normal rotation, but once every 2-3 maps have a vote for the next one, play it then continue normal rotation

No, because only preferred maps will get played then. if majority of players rate a map 10/10, and a map 8/10, which one is likely to get more votes for most of the time. Now imagine there are 150 people all voting the same way. i promise you, if this is introduced, there will be some maps you may as well remove from the game.
