Delay or waiting list - saving map for joining MP

Post by GrumpyJoe » Thu Jan 17, 2019 5:00 am

Playing on the Redmew server recently, i got very annoyed with the constant saving of the map for new guests
at peak times, it was saving for newcomers multiple times a minute, sometimes with just a few seconds to play in between, only a few times where it said "saving map for player X AND player Y
with the occasional normal map saving interval in between

would it be possible to add an option for server hosts, that says something like this:
only let people load the map from normal map saving intervals, with a checkbox

and display it to the people waiting as something like:
"waiting for the server to save the map"

In a time sink game like this, people that cant wait for a server for 3-5 minutes are probably not worth waiting for. And it would be the hosts choice anyway

Interesting option for busy servers. Need to provide players waiting to join with a timer as well, but I can see the uses.
