This is a large topic for discussion of the Bunker 4 server. Settings, Maps, Ideas, Feedback or just about anything you can think of for B4 to help out or would like to say or tell us. It is very important for the players to discuss what they like or don't like on a server and how they think it could be better and any ideas that have in general.
I will update and post on this topic regularly and as needed and help out to have everyone heard and known and try to inform everyone of many things on Bunker 4.
Some basic Information:
Server IP Address: 22.214.171.124:27960
DNS: DNS automatically resolves the ip address from a url, and can be placed where you would normally put an IP and it will be resolved to the IP.
The Server is run on a i386 Linux Machine from the Netherlands.
The server runs No Quarter 1.2.9
The server maintains 8 bots by default which are removed as players join the game.
Punkbuster is no longer supported, but you must have punkbuster enabled for your etkey to work correctly.
An etkey is a unique software ID that is used to save information about you including your XP and adminlevels. If you do not have an etkey, please refer to this topic: http://bunker.aaxxss...rate-a-new-one/ to obtain one. It is possible to play without an etkey on B4, but it is not recommended and you will be asked to get one.
Bunker 4 allows map voting at the end of each map to decide the next map. If no map is chosen, it will continue on a default rotation.
|>B<|o-0._.0-o (AKA "Owen") Is the server host and operator.
There are often some extra "fun maps" or other maps that are not in the rotation on the server. Some of these are occasionally played for a little different bit of game-play to have some extra fun. Some of the maps may be ones from old cycles that are not run now or are potential maps for future or current cycles.
All maps and files need for the server can be found here at the Bunker 4 Download Directory;
Bunker 4 Directory
Also in the directory page is a link to donate. anyone who wants to or is willing will be able to do so through paypal.
There is also a bunker 4 forum that all bunker 4 player are free to register on and use. There is a link to the forum in the Bunker 4 Directory.
Please feel free to post what maps you like and don't like and what maps you think would be good to play on the server. Please be sure you have played the map online a few times with players before you decide to post something about it, and please post reasons why the specific map is good or bad for we can understand you and maybe learn it for future reference.
Also you can discuss server settings like weapon or class limits but please, think carefully about both sides of the option and the good and bad on each side before posting, and try to explain in good detail why you think something of an option.
We can not guarantee that the settings or maps will be changed because you don't like them but then we will understand what you think and will try to make experiences better for you if we can. I will try to post as much information and insight on each thing that I can and answer as many questions as I can.
If the admins of the server decide that they like some of your ideas they might talk about it and change it, As much as they want you to have fun there are some things that are best not to change and that can be difficult to work with.
Please also feel free to ask any questions relating to Bunker 4 here and I will attempt to answer or find an answer for you as soon as possible.
Please post you ideas and thoughts on these things, and hopefully they can be used to make the server a better place for all.
Update: All players who would like to have some monthly fun awards please post that you would like them and any award ideas you have!
