Post subject:  New Maps should be played more often

There are hundreds of maps that have been created by users and everybody still plays the 5 or 6 original maps on 99% of populated servers. THere is something dreadfully wrong here. Why don't the official servers have more custom maps, and why don't more private servers rotate custom maps.

I think there are lot of people like me who go in the server browser, see the same maps, and just go play something else because of the boring repetition that exists today in the AA4 gaming community.

The IRISH clan had a server for a while with custom maps. We might have to bring it back just to get things moving again....

Most of the UMM maps are crap, that's why.

I disagree, there are dozens of great user made maps. You are so wrong that it is laughable.
You just get wrecked on them, thats why you don't play them. Hahaha

Most UMMs are not really good, this is a fact. But there are some very fun ones as well. The main issue with UMMs, is that you always have problems with them. They take a long time to load for the first time and there is no progress bar. People simply think the game is frozen and quit. There are several potential issues and this is what making them less popular. There was a time, when I was unable to play my own map for no reason.

I'd like to see them played, but in this state it won't be easy....

who says you 'have' to play the crap ones? just play the good ones or the ones you think are worthy of your game time :lol:

and yes, there are crap maps.. but there are dozens of cracking UMMs, some i would say are even better than official maps, if you dont think so, your either not looking hard enough for them, giving them a chance or just plain old don't care for UMMs because of all the red tape and hoops one has to go through to eventually play them.

one things for sure, they need better support and with attitudes like these toward them.. its no wonder they are not played more often. its a wasted commodity and its a shame.

i played on maybe 11-12 UMM's till i got banned on the server that runs them.Half of them were remakes from AA2 ,Never thought once "WOW" "this is it" "my new favorit",it was more curiosity to play something different than the official rotation.Most of them had the unfinished feel lingering the rest were truely crap.

And currently the situation will never get better......

For example my UMM Industry.... It has 3,700 subs and came top 3 in the mapping competition but I don't think a single server runs it. I've updated the map 2 or 3 times since it was made for the competition yet I haven't had any feedback apart from the competition on whether it plays good or bad. So how can it get better?

Not many people run UMM servers but the few that do are very biased to either AA2/3 remakes, maps their own clan has made or massive maps that not everyone is into.
