Suggestion Title:
A better rtv system.

How would it benefit the Surf server:
I think the rtv can be improved in several ways:
- Increasing the % of players who have to rtv before switching map.
- People below level X can't rtv (Maybe level 10?)
- Currently, the timer is about 10mins before being able to rtv, maybe increase it to 20-25 or even 30mins ?
OR
-Setting this timer for each players when they log in (so people who just have joined the server cannot directly type rtv)

It will force new players to improve their surfing on these maps before giving up and instantly typing rtv. It will also stop ruining the experience of mid-skilled / skilled players who are just trying to complete a long map / improve their pb time.
To be honest I'm a bit mad with the current system, you just can't play some maps (as surf_classics 1/2, surf_kitsune 2 etc...). This is a terrible frustration for mid-skilled people who are struggling a bit with these maps to reach the last stages, but they just can't because of some people who are just giving up on the first stage after 10 minutes and type rtv.

Potential Issues/Exploits:
None.

This suggestion has already been made and is under work to be made as I write this. The system will be a lot nicer than the current one and no so in your face.

Hope this ain't dead. I don't know if anything below had been suggested before.

Surf Quality of Life improvements
Multiple suggestions ahead:
1. Stage reset. A similar one to !r but that only resets your current stage on staged maps and does not stop your timer. Would be really helpful in situations where you get stuck in the spawn portal and etc. Good command: !s.
2. Stage records for staged maps.
3. Replay bot if possible. A replay to bonuses (if there are any), stages (if suggestion 2 is implemented) and normal map record. Would be extra nice if there was a free-lance (4th) bot players can choose a record to play on and it'd change based of player/s requests. Also maybe record each player individually so they can request their record on the 4th bot, even if it's not a map record.
4. A way of travel between stages that resets your timer. Example: !stage 4.

How / why would it benefit the Surf server:
It would greatly improve the quality of life on the surf server. Suggestion 3 (replay bot) can also help moderation-wise.

Potential Issues/Exploits:
None.

Hey, thanks for your suggestions. I do like quite a few of them. The problem is that afaik we don't have an active surf developer. If we have someone that works on surf I'll make sure to suggest these!

[SURF] Suggestions 3 years 6 months ago #1290572

Suggestion Title: Exclude AFK Players from RTV

How / why would it benefit the Surf server: It would not force active users to be stuck on a map because other players are AFK causing the RTV percentage to be higher...

People might actually stick around if there's more change in the maps!

Potential Issues/Exploits:

People who intentionally stand still toward the end of the stage to farm diamonds may be affected, not a major issue really...

Additional notes:

It's so frustrating to be stuck on a map and not be able to RTV because the majority of the server are AFK and you cannot change the map.

Think this is quite unnecessary, especially with the fact you can just farm map completions by setting slow times and beating them by a second each time.

I think he means it will show how many individual maps you completed and how much times you completed it doesn't matter since as you said could be farmed

It already shows that on the in-game scoreboard so I don't think that's what he was suggesting but I'm not sure.

[SURF] Suggestions 3 years 1 week ago #1337842

Suggestions:

Add a style with sv_airaccelerate 150

How / why would it benefit the Surf server:

I think it would give more experienced players the possibility to enjoy easier maps again.
Giving everyone an overall nicer experience, since 'better' players wont need to only play hard maps.
Which will give newer players the possibility to play easy maps.

Potential Issues/Exploits:

-

Additional notes:

I think a mode like this, would benefit everyone playing on the server, since we already have modes like HSW, SW, A-Only which are more niche surf styles, it would only make sense to add an 'hard' style.

[SURF] Suggestions 3 years 1 week ago #1338299

Suggestion Title (What are you Suggesting):
Option to display your velocity in the center of the screen

How / why would it benefit the Surf server:
It would allow players to see their current velocity without looking at the bottom of the screen. Newer players might find this useless, but its really useful since you'd know if you have enough speed for a skip for examaple.

Potential Issues/Exploits:
none

Additional notes:
After a bit of testing, this seems to be the optimal pos to draw it with this font:
ScrW() / 2 - 32, ScrH() / 2 - 168
surface.CreateFont( "hud_speed", { size = 30, font = "Coolvetica" } )

How / why would it benefit the Surf server: Those are few maps that i remember from years when i was surfing in csgo, they were fun to compete with others.

surf_lament or surf_minuet_v1p- Both Linear, casual easy maps
surf_waterworks - Linear, a bit harder than lament/minuet but still easy and fun
