What do you think about the idea that Garry himself adds maps made by the community in Garry’s Mod updates ? It would solve the : " Oh nooo, again a huge map to download, I prefer quit the server! ".
I would like to put awesome maps ( like gm_atomic ) on my server, but new players ( or people who don’t know the map ) will be bored by the download time.
I don’t want to put a sv_downloadurl, because you have to update your LUA cache each time it changes. The problem is that my server is auto-SVN-updated, so what, I need to update the cache daily? I’m sorry but I can’t.
I don’t think it’s difficult to add 10-15 great maps ( decided by vote? ) each update.
Like TF2, to discover new maps, share your creation to everyone who has Garry’s Mod, and reduce this download time, because maps are the biggest files to download, because no one wants to wait to play on an awesome map.
Please, add community maps to updates.
Edit : I have just seen that we don’t have the right to ask about maps requests etc… But mine isn’t really a map request, it’s a " more in the game " request, I think.
