SomebodyElse - Stairsteps CTF Map

Post by SomebodyElse »

Sorry, I've been on a bit of a map-making craze lately. Here's another. If anyone could help me with finding a way to host these, it would be greatly appreciated. Thanks. Here is a picture of this map. I tried to fit as much of the map as possible into the picture so it is zoomed out kind of far.

Nice and creative... I wonder what gameplay might be like with lots of players. Looks like there might be quite a fight over control over the center. Might want to make it all smaller, though, so it's not quite so massive and difficult to navigate. I would also remove or really knock down the size of all the walls at ground level.

There's no point in publicly hosting a map unless people will play on it, and statistically speaking, with the current playing trends it is impossible for there to be even one player on all the publicly-listed servers at once. According to this graph the number of servers wavers around 350, and there are generally not more than 250 players at a given time. There are generally only around 20 servers with players on them at a given time.

All that to say, don't think that just having your map hosted publicly will make it popular. Be ready to put in a lot of hours of playing time at your map until others have gotten to know it well before it becomes popular.

You raise a very good point in your comment. It probably will be difficult to attract people to my maps when/if they get posted. I just want them out there for the possibility of someone playing on them. I want to make something different from the norm that people can enjoy.
