Default What would you like to see in UT2007?

This is more of an open poll.

What as server admin would you like to see in UT2007 (new or changed).

So this isn't about gameplay, maps or whatever, but about server admin features.

Hmm, maybe somekind of a secured telnet interface(like ssh) to control the server, would be extremely useful ...

Default Admin Ideas

The abillity to run the server as a service on Windows2000/XP/Servers/etc

That would be nice im trying to make it work on ut99 but have not had much luck up to now

------------------------------------------------------------------------
The abbility to password spectator join but have no password for joining to play the game. Cool for admins gives them a spectator slot thats always available. (if you can do this on ut99 please let me know ta)

Maybe you could have one spectator slot password protected for the admins and another not password protected for anyone to use.

How about a nice gui interface for configuring the server on the fly,
instead of downing it and editing ini file.
Yes, I know you can use the web admin, but it has it's limitations.
It would be nice to add server packages and actors through the webadmin, and have them take effect on the next map change.
Or even the ability to have it auto reboot during the next map change.

You mean something like a complete control panel for the server? Would be quite usefull indeed. You don't need to give everyone FTP access that way.

Default additioins to 2007

1. admin tracking....like the levels idea of SWA but knowing what admin did what to who and when. And comments section for that admin to make a note why they did the action they did.

2. Being able to login into the server from the webadmin and not create lag.

3. Auto map installation tool and automatic compression and upload to a specified redirect server.

4. A "All-in-One" admin utility that would combine the functions of many of the programs we use now into one interface: like the irc reporter bot, substats, a choice of enhanced HUD's, goodness the list could go on and on.

I'm sure others will think of more, I'm off to bed.

It's already been mentioned, but it would help if admins could have some GUI or something that they could change settings (actors, serverpackages) on without having to shut it down.

I think database support (mysql for example) would be a nice addition all around, right now the first things I think of are:
- remote logging
- server profile: store profiles (remotely) not depending on a monolithic ini being edited or replaced with external tools.

This is essential. Ingame client side screenshots stored on the server. Not possible with uscript at the moment I believe?

Time epic got serious about anti cheat, rather than constanly expect the community to do their work for them.

I believe it is because I know someone that made one, and I know another that is currently in the process of making one

that sounds cool, like an updated console menu based style in game, I run 2 machines, 2 monitors now in order to play and admin at the same time and kvm between them when needed so admining on the fly is basically easier with whatever interface am using.


On another note anti cheat should be a major consideration, one that is automatically updated on its own via a constant feed like UTAN is now, also something that dosnt lag the server at all or slow game play even for a sec. I avoid using an anitcheat now on our servers for this reason but get a steady supply of botters that we ban weekly because of this.. The lag/game play slowness is worse than the botters on current anticheat...

dont know if 200x does these but at the risk of looking daft........

recovery of scores when players disconnect and reconnect.

Teambalancer that
-balances bots and humans evenly accross teams
-the option of when a player joins and would give one team the advantage of +1 player. Instead he could join as spectator untill another person joins, then they could be added one on each team. and the option of always add a bot to the other side to keep teams even.

or......instead being added as spectator the extra player could be added as a non-team player that can be killed/hunted by everyone for extra points or a special pickup.
maybe he could have special skills like stealth and can jump higher/farer/maybe fly/be tiny/transform into object/... so hes hard to get.

Great ideas everyone
I hope all these ideas will get sent to epic, maybe they will take notice.
