    Dallas worse after update?

    [quote="whosurdaddy972":27hsct2x]We had 2 dallas pubs before but the community voted for NY so we had to closed dallas #2 and open NY. Closing won't happen for a while because I still want to keep my East coast players a chance to get it populated[/quote:27hsct2x] Fair enough, as an East coast player I love the idea of a NY server. It just hasn't been getting many players until pretty recently.

    Dallas worse after update?

    [quote="Moo":11l5rrmd]It has nothing to do with the location. It's how much the CPU can handle CSGO. the update from 3 months ago change the way models work in CSGO, and it resulted in more resources being utilized by CSGO. Operating server with 128 tick + high population became pretty much impossible. It causes constant choke, meaning you will experience teleporting, shots not being registered, etc since server cannot handle all the data that is being sent in and out.[/quote:11l5rrmd] That makes more sense, thanks for the explanation. Is it not possible to close a server like Canada or NYC that get almost no players and setup a server with 20 slots @128tick in Chicago or a secondary server in Dallas? The biggest problem with these servers is anyone who lives on the opposite coast from the server will likely not join due to having 90+ ping. I live in MA so playing on Cali would give me nearly 100 ping, which is only around 10-15 less than I ping to Europe. So playing on a Cali server is much more difficult and vise versa for anyone on the West Coast trying to play on Canada or NYC. I believe this is the reason these servers get less players than Dallas. Having more central servers would mean people from both sides of the US can play with reasonable ping, and a Chicago host would mean players from Canada would get good ping as well. It just seems like with the overflowing population on Dallas, another central server could easily pick up the extra players, and 20 slots would be plenty. EDIT: [quote="whosurdaddy972":11l5rrmd]Canada is at 32 slots and 128 tick but I havent touch that server in months. Server prob not even working but that server is shutting down after our box expires[/quote:11l5rrmd] Well I joined it just to test the tickrate and it loaded up the map alright, didn't really stick around to test it out more. I imagine it wouldn't handle many players though.

    Dallas worse after update?

    [quote="whosurdaddy972":sebe12t3]going to 128 tick means we have to lower the slot down to 20 like NY and Cali. Valve release a patch about 3 months ago that really affect the server tick rate. We could open another Dallas server for 20 slots 128 tick, but I would need a lot of help getting it started. Right now Cali and NY are fairly empty and its pointless to open another server and waste money. I will open it once cali or NY starts to populate better[/quote:sebe12t3] Canada says it has 32 slots at 128 tick, is it just a display error on the slots? Is it not possible to relocate or close this server and set up something like a 20ish slot Chicago server? I just think central servers will be more popular, since Canada gets almost no play at all, even less than NY. Dallas is so popular that it's actually hard to get in during peak hours if you don't have a reserved slot, so I imagine another central server could easily fill up with the players unable to get into Dallas.

    Dallas worse after update?

    The start money back to $800 is the best thing ever, but there seems to be other issues with the server now. So Dallas says 100 tick now (actually 102.4). First off, isn't this a surfing tickrate? Does anyone actually play on 66 or 102.4 tickrates? My rates are stuck at 66/s and won't change even if I go spec and change them to 102.4. Have had several other players with the same issue. Also seems like the interp got much worse, but not sure if that's only me. Is there a reason we can't just have 128 tick? Canada and NYC are both 128 tick and neither of them get played. In fact I don't think Canada has had more than 10 players for 6+ months. What's the reasoning behind having the 2 least popular servers have a higher tickrate than the server that's full nearly 24/7? Can we just get two central 128 tick servers and close down CA or NYC? Two Dallas or one Dallas and one Chicago seem like the best options.

    Dallas pistol rounds

    Also agree, $1000 start money is one of the worst aspects of the server. Pistol round is usually my favorite round.

    Updated Knife Shop

    I'm not sure I understand what you mean, all of the knives in that shop work just fine. I use the plugin on my server. Unless it's a problem with the credits system, because I don't use that function.

    Updated Knife Shop

    So are Huntsman and Butterfly's just disabled then? For what reason? Maybe I was confused, when I was on the Dallas server someone was talking about "getting a new knife shop mod that had butterfly's". I was under the impression the current mod didn't have the missing knives, so I was just trying to help out.

    Updated Knife Shop

    https://forums.alliedmods.net/showthread.php?t=231790 Seems to be similar to the mod used now except it includes the missing knives (Butterfly, Hunstman, and Golden). We use this mod on the server that I help admin and it works good, we don't use a credits system so I'm not sure how well that part works. Would be nice to have all the knives available in the shop!

    Server Skins

    Dallas has so many players having a second Dallas server might not be a bad idea.

    Server Skins

    It would be nice to have at least one of the servers I play on have skins disabled. I play on Canada mostly so that would be perfect.

    Server Skins

    I agree some of the skins really give an advantage to the player using them. For people like myself who live on the East coast, Cali servers are just not a valid option. As far as I'm aware, both Dallas and Canada have these custom skins.
