    Setting Up & Admining the Black Ops Server - Feedback Requested

    Post by Antares on Sat Oct 30, 2010 10:43 pm

    So it looks like we'll be hosting a Black Ops server after all. Its set for 18 player slots, thats the most you can have.

    I'd like to get some feedback on how we're going to approach admining this server. In particular with rules, if we even have any. My recommendation is that we don't have any, other than the obvious ones of no hacking and no excessive whiners or game play disrupters.

    I'm not sure how this server will be admined as in the type of tool that is used. Chances are the ones we used for the World at War server will work once they're tweaked to support the game. I'll be setting up the Rcon and providing you all with the login info and general tips of how to use it. I'm going to have to start researching on game day to figure out how to run this thing and will be passing along information on what we can and cannot control. In particular with perks, HC settings, stuff like that. Hopefully we'll have a fair amount of access to the config files, I believe we should since my understanding is that the game will come with mod tools. We don't have to mod, but will be able to tweak some of the stock stuff.

    I'm assuming that we're going to make this Hardcore? Or do we want to try it stock first?

    My understanding so far and this isn't necessarily true, is that there is no standard FFA mode in Black Ops. Its only offered in the Wager Matches. Does anyone know differently? I have not been able to get the answer to this question.

    Here is a list of what CoD wiki list as game types, as you can see there is no FFA, the list would be wrong as in a Twitter update about 2 months back Trey said Tact. Insertion would be Disable in FFA and Hardcore FFA.

    Gametypes

    * Team Deathmatch will return; however, points for headshots and other bonuses will be added to
    the team's score.
    * Capture the Flag
    * Search and Destroy
    * Demolition
    * Hardcore Team Deathmatch
    * Hardcore Search and Destroy
    * Headquarters
    * Sabotage
    * Domination
    * Combat Training: Fight against enemy AI in a training mode.

    Wager Matches~

    A new mode with a separate ranking structure than the standard online modes, will allow players to gamble with their money. However, only the top three will receive the prize. They will be placed into one of four random modes:

    * One in the Chamber - each player is given a pistol with one bullet and a knife. For each kill achieved the player will receive one more bullet. However, each player will only have three lives.
    * Sharpshooter - each player is given the same random weapon. The weapon will be used for 45 seconds before being switched out for another one. Kills will award the player with perks and score multipliers.
    * Sticks and Stones - each player receives only a crossbow, ballistic knife, and a Tomahawk. The catch in this gamemode is that if the player was able to hit an enemy with a Tomahawk, the enemy player will go "bankrupted".
    * Gun Game - players start out with a pistol. For each kill they move up a level, granting them a better gun. First person to achieve kills with all 20 weapons wins. However, someone who is knifed will move down a level.
    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
    Might as well add more things while I'm at it....

    Killstreaks

    * 3 kill streaks: Spy Plane, RC-XD
    * 4 kill streaks: Counter-Spy Plane, SAM Turret
    * 5 kill streaks: Care Package, Napalm Strike
    * 6 kill streaks: Sentry Gun, Mortar Team
    * 7 kill streaks: Attack Helicopter, Valkyrie Rockets
    * 8 kill streaks: Blackbird, Rolling Thunder
    * 9 kill streaks: Chopper Gunner
    * 11 kill streaks: Attack Dogs, Gunship

    PC-only information

    * The PC version of Call of Duty: Black Ops will feature dedicated servers.[12]
    * Modding tools and the leaning feature will return, though it is likely that the modding tools will come out a bit after the game has been released.
    * The PC version will be using Steam as DRM and will be using VAC as an anti-cheating tool.
    * Players can choose a server via a server browser screen or use matchmaking to send a lobby to a server chosen by the game.
    * Dedicated servers must be rented.
    * Unranked servers are completely customizable while ranked ones let the renter choose levels and gametypes.

    I ran into Panzer on an LA server last night. Didn't say much, he acknowledged me. Haven't seen him since. He goes by, Panzer1997.

    We should all send Friend requests. You should be able to reach me at, Antares. My steam account name is, Antares01.
