new donation perks:

1. immunity to autobalance
2. immunity to autoscramble
3. end of round immunity
4. AFK immunity (normally you would be kicked after 8 minutes of afk - 4 to spectator, 4 after that = boot)

and reserved slots I THINK i have been fixed where a server can fill up all the way with non-reserved players, and a reserved slot can join via console and it will kick a non-reserve slot player. time will tell though.

if it doesn't work i will just remove it.

engineers can now also build teleporter entrances, dispensers and sentry guns inside the spawn.

ashington is the first person to donate $10 to the server! he gets a gold tf2 award for it. i will give a silver and bronze one to the 2nd and 3rd people.

1st (gold)
2nd (silver)
3rd (bronze)
normal -

the server bill is due in the middle of every month and costs $17/mo to upkeep. i appreciate any support towards it and i will always be improving it and trying to help it grow. don't hesitate to invite your friends to the group and server as well.

i am adding bots to the server to help encourage people to stay/fill the server.

how they will work is like this - if someone joins the server, 7 bots will join as well to make the total player count 8. bots will leave as humans join until 8 human players are there, and then the bots will be gone. so they basically just keep the server pop at 8 until they don't have to anymore.

bots do not work on all maps at the moment, but they will (to some extent) over the next few days as i generate nav files for them to use. nav files will need to be downloaded, but i will mirror them on tba so they will download much faster than they would if you were getting them off the tf2 server. they're also very small - usually around 1 to 4MB.

the bots are on "hard" difficulty , which if you ask me is not very hard at all. but on the bright side, it is good practice for trying out new loadouts or just experimenting and having fun without being completely alone.

alright, bots should now work on every map, except for payload race maps because valve apparently never made the bot engine capable of playing on them.

i've also set them to their highest difficulty level. they're still pretty dumb though. but so far i think they've helped fill up the server.

you should have a download link for any non-standard maps because god knows it takes long enough downloading them through tf2

no need for that, i have sv_download_url set which means all custom maps and other non-standard files are mirrored as bz2 archives on tba that will download from this site in-game at the highest speed possible
