I put up a new server called *RAINBOW|maptest* where maps currently in development by our mappers will be placed.
The maps rotate in a standard rotation, but there are only a few maps on this server at the moment, but hopefully we get some more soon:
UPDATED! 2007-08-25Added sago's redishF and the unarmed#21 from hyp3erfocus
The maps are:
kit89's paradise_oa
sago007's redishF
sausage's ssgdm01
hyp3rfocus unarmed21
anyone's previewoa_dm3 and previewoa_dm5 (with unique names to prevent overwriting oa_dm3 and oa_dm5)

Callvoting is ENABLED on this server but it would be appreciated if only the development maps in the rotation are used, so that people can try these maps.
You can however, select a specific map by typing the following in your console:

/callvote map [name]
for example /callvote map previewoa_dm5

If you have another map that you want hosted, then come to irc.anynet.org #rainbow or contact any rainbow administrator for further help.

I thought it make map-testing and getting players feedback easier that way.

Not sure if this server will run 24/7 yet, it depends on how well populated it becomes.

NOTE: I've already had players asking me why they cannot connect to this server (not it is not a broken server), the answer is simple: you need to ENABLE AUTODOWNLOADS
Either through the meny as follows:

or type: /cl_allowDownload 1 in the console

Of course there are security risks with enabling this option, so do so on your own risk.

This server is not active at the moment since nobody seemed interested in playing on it. So having it on-line 24/7 is quite pointless. It will be running once in a while, and when some new maps are released, or when you simply ask for it.

UPDATED 2007-09-02As a matter of fact we now have a dedicated CTF server up and running.
The RAINBOW|ctf runs 100% custom maps and allows for map downloads thanks to JockeTF & Soder.

You need to enable AUTODOWNLOADS to play it..

You can download the maps from the server with high download speeds but if you want the entire map-pack that the RAINBOW servers use, then this map-pack is what you want.

More specifically, the servers map file looks like this:
Code:
// ############################# CTF MAP ROTATION
set ctf1 "map bastir; seta bot_enable "1"; set nextmap vstr ctf2"
set ctf2 "map bubctf1; seta bot_enable "1"; set nextmap vstr ctf3"
set ctf3 "map leafland; seta bot_enable "1"; set nextmap vstr ctf4"
set ctf4 "map hal_palindrome; seta bot_enable "1"; set nextmap vstr ctf5"
set ctf5 "map kellblack; seta bot_enable "1"; set nextmap vstr ctf6"
set ctf6 "map ut_subway; seta bot_enable "1"; set nextmap vstr ctf7"
set ctf7 "map moonstone; seta bot_enable "0"; set nextmap vstr ctf8"
set ctf8 "map rjlctf2; seta bot_enable "1"; set nextmap vstr ctf9"
set ctf9 "map teamtemple_q3a; seta bot_enable "1"; set nextmap vstr ctf1"
wait
vstr ctf1
// ############################# END ROTATION

Timelimit is: 30 minutes
Capture limit: 8
Friendly fire: Off

This server, like all the other rainbows, can be booked in advance and password protected if you want.
Simply contact any of the rainbow administrators or visit us on irc.anynet.org #rainbow.
Have fun..
