Pinegrove 24/7?

If a Pinegrove 24/7 similar to the Island ones was provided, would you play there?

I'm looking to improve the popularity of the map, but it doesn't appear too often in server lists.

What do you think?

    I'd play any 24/7 booty map. I'm tired of Island so I prefer all the other booty maps which I think are better and more interesting anyways.

    Of course! such a beautiful map and very fun to play on, i wish it got played more! i think it's a great idea to have a 24/7 Pinegrove server but also the other official maps aswell since i hardly get to play them alot all of them are fun in their own way which makes them awesome!

    Everytime I visit Pinegrove everybody else fights the wrong team for the wrong reasons and only a few seem to acknowledge the existence of the chests, and even then only some of the time. So, basically exactly the same as Island. So, yes. I'd even be player 1 for a while if necessary.

    I will say though, I'd imagine the fact that there are neutral chests in all the non-Island maps makes them a tad more confusing than Island's simple "pillage the Knights".
    There's a couple solutions to this problem, with the easiest being, give the neutral chests HUD icons like the three capture zones. They would only be visible as long as the chests are in their neutral spawn points and are not being carried by anyone. This choice is rather invasive and would likely clutter up the HUD at the very beginning of the round.

    A better suggestion would be to give the player a "debriefing" while the map/server loads or as a closable spawn prompt that shows them useful information, like an aerial view of the map, an idea of where each base and capture zone is and what they look like, where any neutral chests are hiding, and *especially* that you need to pull the rope in bt_townsquare to access the chests in the cage.
    All that in addition to a brief explanation as to what Booty Mode even is.

    Just something to make new and unfamiliar maps a little less esoteric.

    I've been considering changing the map so that Pirates start with several/all chests (would need testing), it might make the intended gameplay come about more naturally

    Pinegrove is a great map, and just like the knights having all the chests in island, giving them to the pirates in pinegrove just may work. I agree with the testing tidbit, I can throw up a pinegrove 24/7 if you want to test/ have up along side island 24/7. No biggie on my end since i'm on a VDS now.

    Thank you for the lovely words :)
    If you could put up a PG 24/7 for me, that would just freaking fantastic! :o :icon_jacksp:

    I think the issue with Pinegrove vs Island is that Island has the bright colorfulness and a size that has action going on at any given time which is appealing to players. Pinegrove has its fair share of chaos though. I am not crazy about Pirates getting all the chests because their base would need to be superb for defending. While they can see the people coming up from both ends, it is quite easy to disappear out of sight the moment you have a chest unlike the other bases due to it being enclosed and smaller.

    Hey, is this server still up? And if not how did it do whilst it was up?

    Thank you for doing it either way :D

    Server is no longer up on my end due to life getting in the way as it does (less free time, working odd hours, bills and all that adult jazz) I had passed the torch to koko a little ways back. It's not up but I did keep some tabs on it while I did have it up. It semi-regularly had some players in it (though not many considering what is usually played and playerbase size) albeit not a lot but that was impart due to me since I didn't "spruce it up" like the other servers with plugins and sounds and whatnot. I wanted to do more with it but life has been getting in the way this past year. The last bit of data I had on it I had sent to you in a message last year haha.

    Ah thanks for the update and for hosting the server in the first place :)

    Just a follow up to this after chatting to Combine this morning. Any one up for hosting it again?

    Not looking for a freebie, show me proof of running costs, admin etc and if it's not crazy expensive I'm happy to pay!

    I could actually run a 24/7 Pinegrove server if you want. How do you want me to setup the server? Pure vanilla, or run it like most servers with plugins and such?

    Just let me know that and the player count you want. Don't worry about the cost, I already pay for a VDS to host my servers on, so adding an extra server will incur zero extra cost to me unless I need more RAM, which I think should be fine.

    Wow seriously?! Damn dude that would be amazing!!!

    I'll be honest, I have no idea on what plugins are available, whats popular etc.
    IF there's anything that pushes the actual booty gameplay would be the most ideal, is there one that like "ranks" players or something but the Ranks come from booty stuff? If not, Vanilla please :-D

    Player count wise would 21 players be OK? 7 vs 7 vs 7?
    Or maybe 15? 5 vs 5 vs 5?

    Let me know, and again. THANK YOU very very much!!!

    Alright, it's live. I don't know of any rank plugins that do any tracking for booty and such, but if anybody else does or has any suggestions about that let me know. Right now it's set to 21 players and is completely vanilla. Only rule on the server is no hacking\cheating. Funny enough, the instant I made the server live, somebody joined haha.
