[NEWS] Patch #012, V0.94 GINGER is NOW live!

Official announcements from REAKKTOR Studios

  • I noticed if you're not subscribed to a custom map it'll just show as 'MAP' on the server list: http://i.imgur.com/g79XW4V.jpg People won't know which map to subscribe to off the workshop if they want to join the server.

    If you connect it'll try to download it (very slow) off the server if there's no server redirect configured: http://i.imgur.com/G444pRy.jpg

    But if you're subscribed to the map it shows up on the server as it should: http://i.imgur.com/6D7yoEr.jpg

    Good catch. I recall something like that from earlier on when we ran some custom maps but yeah.

    I asked about a thing related to this a while back on IRC. And I think the conclusion at least I came to was that it would be good if you got some kind of notice when a server switches to a map that it needs to download. Since the one that it downloads straight from the server is a cached version of it which has its own issues, and as I understand it, having it download the non-cached one requires the game to restart for it to find the new files.

    So as an example, you join a server, play a round of Foundation or whatever. It switches to a map you don't have, you'll get some kind of a message telling you which map you need to grab from the workshop, be it with just the name or even a link that will bring you to the page would be helpful. Rather than having people sit there and wait for an endless loading screen as the game tries to download it in the background.

    I have no idea if such a thing is possible or even a good idea. I don't know! I'm just throwing it out there!
