Servers we should host
« on: 17.08.2016 14:01:50 »
Guys hosting some of the servers become useless (I know its been useless for some times now). What should I host instead tho ? If I were to take down Cinema and Murder servers i could host 2 Source game servers or maybe something completely else. Sadly i don't have much time to work and keep eye on servers lately. I can host nearly anything.

Things i would not want to host:
Counter-Strike 1.6 - Game is so outdated that setting up mods for it is more than just pain
Garry's Mod - Requires a lot of server managing, updates break stuff, is much less popular lately
Counter-Strike: Global Offensive - Servers run like crap on windows and setting em up is death of me
Minecraft - Last time i had actuall server it ended up having over 500 people banned cause of griefing and 1 active player
Rust - Was empty for the longest, even if our community plays there it eventually dies off, tried hosting 3 times.
Dayz - do not own the game

Preferably some more popular game so servers wont sit as empty as gmod servers right now

What other games are there nowadays, that have dedicated server support ???

Just a thought, but you could try hosting Terraria server with RPG mods and custom accounts. Could be fun to pop-in every now and then.

There is no server browser for Terraria, so it will more or less be only our community. I could host it but i don't see it getting many people.

You can add your socket to public Terraria server list's on the web.

You could try hosting private servers of some MMO's (require a lot of work to set up).

Also handy list: https://developer.valvesoftware.com/wiki/Dedicated_Servers_List

I was also thinking L4D2 - active player-base, source engine, doesn't require much effort to set up and manage (mods).

Lets actually make a poll vote as we don't know how many members visit catgc at all and then we can take actions.
