    First I’d like to welcome @Lillen to the map testing team! I’d also like to remind people that you can not have alpha or beta as part of the name of a map, I’ve updated this thread to reflect this note. Thank you! If there are any issues it is easiest to contact me on steam or discord. I'll be watching the major but still be able to fix any issues (hopefully).

    • Kz_dontstop – community poll decided we didn’t want to see this kind of exploit in global maps

    Updated mapcycle.txt

    The console command for hosting a workshop map is:

    host_workshop_map <file id>

    OR

    +host_workshop_map <file id> in the launch options of a server

    I've also started maintaining the global approved maps on mega, so if you are missing a map maybe check that out if you can't find on workshop.

    For a few reasons really. First is just a bunch of issues with it when it comes to maintaining a global maplist. If a mapper decides to update a map needlessly it will update for every server and go off of the globally approved map (happened a few times recently). If a mapper removes their map from workshop it messes up servers using the collection it is part of. It's quite simply more of a hassle than me maintaining a list of globally approved BSPs. For new servers IMO it would be easier to download a .zip folder than to subscribe to several collections due to some random limitations of workshop. For already established servers it is much easier to do the command I included to add a map than it is for me to make sure the collections are always up to date. Overall, I feel like it is a server owners responsibility to maintain their map list while I just provide the tools to give a good competitive map list that are approved.
    (Sorry this is kind of scatter brained, hope you understand it)

    Abstruse is really fun. Also watching Zoso completely skip the bhops in the surf/bhop part made me realize how much I suck at surf cause I have no idea how he did that.

    Considering not everyone wants to dl/ul 8.68 GB I'd say at least offering the usage of the workshop system would be ideal, if I could be bothered I'd do it myself but considering it takes like 5 seconds idk why you wouldn't.

    Also:
    In my experience no it doesn't, it just behaves as though that map isn't in the collection (although if you have any evidence of the contrary then lmk)

    I made a mistake when I released these maps, I have gone back and transferred the times for alice. This is reflected in main post now.

    The logic in this sentence is so flawed. No matter what mode you download maps from the total will still be 8.68GB of maps, it being on workshop vs mega doesn't effect the sizes of the .bsp's. Secondly, it only takes 5 seconds according to you but you can't be bothered? Anyone is free to maintain workshop collections but I disagree with many of its merits and thus won't be doing it.

    http://www.kz-climb.com/index.php?threads/setting-up-your-server-with-the-workshop-system.712/

    As you see there's been two instances of people with issues of the sort I described and as you know there are limits of how many maps can be in a collection that nobody really understands, it's just more of a headache for something I don't use or believe in.

    I understand I am involved in a lot of aspects of managing kz and one of the more prominent figures. I will be more scrutinized / criticized, but I find it unacceptable coming from a "Global Admin".

    I'd say this on discord (already mentioned similar things) to you in the global team section but evidently you can't be bothered to do that either.

    Just clarifying for you...

    Workshop:
    Download from workshop directly to server (using the server).

    or...
    Without workshop:
    Download from Mega to your PC (using your internet).
    Upload to server (using your internet).

    edit: furthermore, workshop is useful for auto-updating unreleased maps.

    You're never getting poor old me in Australia to do that.

    Also workshop may be faster than some fast dl servers
