Ohio Bronies TF2 Server!

We now have a our very own server! Again! (grumble grumble)

b_560_95_1.png

IP Address: 68.232.168.7:27015
Add this to your favorites! Right click on the Steam icon in your system tray, and click on Servers. Right click in the window and select 'Add Server by IP Address' and copy it into the box.

Reserved slots will be given freely to any community members who want one, as well as server regulars. Invite your friends!

ADDONS AND MODS:
Rock the Vote - Type "rtv" or "!rtv" in chat to vote to change the current map. If the map you're on sucks, just rtv and get out of there.
Nominate - Want to play a specific map? Nominate it! Type "!nominate" in chat to select a specific map to appear on next mapvote.
Saysounds - type !soundlist in chat for a list of sounds you can play to the server. You can also type just the soundname in chat, and it will play. Example - "!scootaloo"

SERVER RULES:
Standard fare here. Don't be a dick, no griefing, no racism, no pornographic sprays. Admins have full discretion on rules, in addition to things not specifically covered here.

CURRENT ADMINS:

SuperDSombrero
Twitchy (YellowNukaCola)
Mkanke (PeanutBucker.mk)

If there's a spammer or a group of rowdies on the server, feel free to contact any of the above to take care of it. Sombrero is probably most likely to be online.

DONATIONS:
Since I'm paying for this out of pocket at the moment, any and all donations are thoroughly encouraged. Gameservers has a handy system where you can contribute (via PayPal) directly to the server's account. It's a 23 slot server, which runs me approximately $22 a month. Convenient donation link! There is a minimum amount of $5, and all payments go directly to the server account.

Planned Events:
Weekly Fridays and Saturdays, about 8p or so.

Re: Ohio Bronies TF2 Server!

Thanks a million, Kanke! That helped us get a fast download server available, so now I can do custom sounds and maps!

Okay guys, it's mostly set up and properly configured. The only thing missing is the custom items plugin which will hopefully be fixed soon, otherwise I have to reneg on my donation promise.

Feel free to suggest any plugins that I don't have installed, I sometimes forget obvious stuff. I should, however, say that I'm forgoing on a few things intentionally because I think they're just no good. TF2 stats, while kinda fun, is ultimately useless and encourages a 'play to win' mentality, which isn't necessarily fun for everyone. I'm also going to withhold on plugins that play music. If you wanted to listen to music, you would already have winamp or foobar or whatever running in the background (micspam is okay for the most part, though).

I am also NOT going to include pony player models. Those fuckers are terrifying.

Everyone should be able to votekick, regardless of admin or reserved slot status.

EDIT: I got the items plugin working! Donors will now be able to set up unusual effects on their gear. Contact me and let me know what you want.

Re: Ohio Bronies TF2 Server!

Just curious, is this (or will it become) an official TF2 server, like one that can receive holiday gifts and item drops, or is it independent?

Re: Ohio Bronies TF2 Server!

Item drops and Holiday gifts will drop, there's no registration process. There IS a 10 player minimum for holiday gifts to appear, but item drops are regulated by total playtime, no matter what server.

One of these days when I'm not dead tired I need to just hop on and invite everyone to come play, we haven't really broken in the server yet. Without breaking it, anyway.

I was sure I heard this Halloween there was some registration process, and that if you were caught abusing something (like auto-killing Merasmus for easy achievements) you would not get item drops anymore, but maybe I misunderstood. In any event, do you plan on getting the server to show up in the regular server list? I can't imagine most players typing the IP address into the console.

Re: Ohio Bronies TF2 Server!

It should already appear on the master server list. I have it listed as 'Ohio Bronies TF2 Server' (such creativity!).

If you're thinking about the process that puts players in a server when they click 'Play Now!', the game will automatically pick a server from those available to you through a weighted system which factors things like current players, open slots, ping, and what tags the server has on it. Since we're pretty vanilla right now, it'll be pretty high up on the list unless it's completely empty. Which it is, most of the time. Generally, if you can get three or four people to start playing on it, randomly assigned players will begin to fill the empty slots.

If you personally don't want to type in the IP address in the console, you can add it to your favorites list. Right click on your steam try icon and select 'Servers'. This list is also accessible in-game when you click on 'Servers' in the main menu of TF2. In the empty window that pops up, click 'Add Server by IP Address' and then you can just copy paste the IP into there and join through the favorites list.

Alternately, you can click on 'Servers' in the main menu and search for the one that has 'Ohio Bronies TF2 Server' in the name. You can also add it to your favorites from this menu as well.

Re: Ohio Bronies TF2 Server!

Interesting. I checked just now on a global server list, and I see neither our server or the OCR TF2 server (both of which I have in my favorites, and I know are online). I suspect it has to do with the UI stopping it's refresh after a while.

You can connect manually though, right? Or through steam friends?

EDIT: I just checked, seems the server was out of date. It should appear on the server list now.

Turns out you have to register the server for quickplay, which brings you users and enables gifts. If you don't do this, your server will neither appear in the official server list nor receive holiday gifts.

Re: Ohio Bronies TF2 Server!

So what's the status on this? I would love to play me some TF2, and if needed, I can even do some mod-work on the server.  I actually moderated the server and edited it for my gaming clan.

Do you guys have your own server up still? If so, what game mode is it?

I should be able to, put down a maybe just in case.


Why is it anyone lives in Ponyville? its seems to be a disaster magnet, its a half an hours from a forest of nasties, 2 hours from a place called ghastly gorge which has such a lovely name, and less than a days run from the very gates of hell.  Property values must suuuuuck.

Re: Ohio Bronies TF2 Server!

I may or may not be, but if I do, I'll be the one moving like an r-tard as I just started playing tf2 last week and some angry diety shortcircuited all my game controllers so im still working on getting aquainted with the keyboard setup. Also, I can't seem to find this server sad

Re: Ohio Bronies TF2 Server!

So, I forgot to post anything in the forums here, but I actually took the server down about two months ago. Turns out nobody really played on it (didn't help that I didn't, either), so cancelled the subscription.

EDIT: I put up a new server, so this post is now defunct. See the first post.

Aww, That's too bad.

But, maybe next time I can try to get a TF2 server up and running. I only got a few servers of my own that a friend helped me with. So if you guys really want to I might be able to get one set for you.

I could certainly do a server as well.  I've done it before and I should be able to run it REASONABLY well.  I'll probably try to get one up and running later tonight.

If I can get a server up and running, sure!  I would have no issues hosting a server for a couple hours.
