A recent post asking for server donations got me thinking about getting a game server to add to the “family” of this site’s “products”. I am not very familiar with the multiplayer end of Quake and I could use some help with this endeavor.
1) What mod should I use for my server?
2) Where do you recommend my server be hosted?
3) Where do I get info on how to set up my server?
4) Is anyone willing to do most of this work for me and if so:
____a) what will it cost me?
____b) what services do you provide for that cost?
I would prefer not to simply run some mod in a vanilla state. I can program in QC and I am not shy to take some existing mod with a solid code base and build on it to create something a little more unique. That being said: What features would you like to see in a multiplayer mod?
I’m in no rush. I’d rather take the time to review my options and input, and create something solid in an environment with quality specs than just dump some A, B, C stuff together to make something happen for the sake of saying it exists. Also, I fully realize that multiplayer Quake is mostly dead. That’s not really important to me. Just because it is mostly dead it doesn’t mean my server will be. I have an entire forum to promote and schedule games on. I could host tournaments and any other imaginable thing regarding this. I could start map jams with the specific point of it being a competition to have your map placed in the server rotation. There are a million ideas. Surely a combination of at least some of them will produce results.
