    im just thinking about a new maps, dark carnival, the motel area.. or dark carnival, 4th chapter before entering the 'concert hall' thingy.. or maybe an update for some map, like sugarmill, 2nd staircase to the mill or maybe some other stuff

    Good ideas. I suppose Sugar Mill could use refreshing. I think its been unchanged for an entire year or more. The 4th map of Dark Carnival sounds like it could be a good map.

    I always thought the Dead Air parking garage would be a lot of fun, less cars, more zombie apocalypse debris and obstacles, no major opportunity for a sniper's advantage (because they know the map well) unless the glass overpass thing is part of it, or even the outside of the garage.

    That could also be an interesting place to work the barricade/commons system, and might even be a good place for newer infected players to get the hang of the sometimes needed hot-swapping between hunter and human.

    Edit: It would also be a lot harder to eliminate the detective than on conventional maps :)

    Just an idea

    Just speaking from logic, I don't think this would work.

    There are so many things that cause server crashes in the finale map of Cold Stream in particular, I think it would be pretty unstable to work with.

    Some of the other maps have some super fun areas though that would be hot stuff for the HI mod.

    Hmm, I do know people have requested Dead Air stuff in the past.

    I prefer closed building areas. we only have interior atm. it's a lot of fun and different to other maps, people like it and vote for this map really soon.
    so what about (with same rules (no C4)):
    - hotel at start of dead center. (mapstart until elevator) including some pathing to change floor outside of the building.
    - erik's idea: car parking in dead air
    - no mercy map 2, end of subway/panic event until windows. no street area.
    - Death Toll, second map... somewhere...?

    i prefer hotel!

    Hotel is a really good idea.

    At first, I thought hotel would be meh... but after thinking about it for a while, there... might actually be some creative stuff that can be done for it.

    have u guys thought of some kind of ummm, "pinning" some maps in the vote menu ?? ... i mean, if everyone loves interior, why should they wait 5-7 rounds or maybe more to get to play that map ...

    For obvious reasons, all maps should be played not only a few specific ones. What you will get then is that the majority of regulars on the server will only vote for maps like interior and new or casual players won't get a chance to play their favorite map. At least people have to play my favorite map now, Park ;)

    So I think the mapvote system is perfect as it is right now.

    I agree. The map vote is fine as is.

    Start with the interior part of the airport. I think the end part is most fun there. From conveyer belts to the end-safehouse. In that broken area with fire there are a few small rooms you can enter. I like that part. Please start there Choo. We need more interior maps, especially since the current interior is loved by all.
