Winner Picks room

Post by dustin » Mon Dec 05, 2016 7:35 pm

Sillysoft is hosting a public automated Winner Picks room. This thread serves as a description of how it works...

When the game has ended the winning player has 2 minutes of time to choose the next map. The winner does this using the /map chat command.

When there's a limited list of maps allowed, they get printed out into the chat at the end of the game. Use number IDs with the map command to select your desired one. i.e. entering the command "/map 3" will select the 3rd map in the list to be next.

The current list of allowed maps is:

1. BattlePlanets - Hegemony of Sirax
2. Chinese Checkers Light
3. Cube Wars
4. EPOCH
5. GES PERIODOS 520BC
6. Hexwood Showdown
7. Hundred Years War HD
8. LOS CARTELES
9. MARATHON
10. Mayan Calendar 2012
11. Mother Russia
12. RISE OF SPARTA
13. Roman Empire II
14. Spacestation Lux
15. Spanish Civil War HD
16. U.S.A. War Zone Redux
17. WWII Tanks - Afrika Korp
18. WWII Tanks - Hurtgen Forest

If there's no map list limitation in effect, the winner can specify any installed map to be next. i.e. "/map roman empire ii" will select Roman Empire II map to be next. (Note that you can type the first few letters of a map name, and then press the TAB key to auto-complete more of it!)

When the winner picks the next map, the normal auto-play count-down kicks off to bring about the next game.

Thanks Dustin for winner-picks rooms and the Infos!

Side-Node: You can see the Winnerpicks room in the Extension "-WP" in the sillysoft host names (e.g. EUROPE-WP is a winner-picks room!).

I hope to see you all there. Winner-picks was a long time request of many luxers. Now we have a permanent rooms and just need to use it :-)

Having 0% cont bonus and 4, 6 , 8, 10, 15 cards would be nice on most of the maps.

A 32s turn timer would be fair too.
