mwllmaps.com - still being used?
« on: June 06, 2013, 09:52:53 PM »
I'm trying to get a feel for how much mwllmaps.com is being used.  I see that the last map postings were some months ago.  My server host is giving me a bit of difficulty over their ToS agreement for usage and I'm considering turning it off.

It would be sad to see it go, but if they're giving you issues over it I don't think anyone would blame you for dropping it.

What are their complaints? Bandwidth? Do you need some cash to keep it running? It's certainly worth tossing some money your way if it's being used, and I think it might be. Even without a lot of updates, I'm sure plenty of people download from there. It's kind of a central stopping point for getting maps.

We could host the site on funbocks. We have space and bandwidth available.

It's not the space or the bandwidth (I have plenty of both) it's the policies of the host with regard to storage of "non-website linked content"as in, I've got some files stored on my web space that are not linked as page content.  In my opinion it's an idiotic policy; what does it matter if the content isn't page-linked accessible so long as I don't exceed my storage or bandwidth limits?  One of the archives is the personal site files for a friend of mine that passed away 3 years ago and I just haven't been able to bring myself to delete his stuff yet.


I'm looking at maybe moving things over to a free Amazon solution, but right now it's a matter of having the free time and interest to actually do the work.  I certainly don't want the resource to go away if the community is still using it.

Hm, aren't some custom maps using mwllmaps.com as their auto downloading location?

Why don't you just link that stuff from a page behind a login?

I'm sad to hear this.
Please do not shut it down if it is possible. If not, it would be good to have an alternative, where custom maps can be shared.

Ancient Demise and I are still working on TC_Harvest. The work is slow, but it will be ready.

I also wanted to update some of my maps (replace the cardboard city on Seaport with real looking buildings, and small improvements on Warzone). Well, I started to work last year on these, so it's also slow,  but I would like to finish it before/during summer...

I  think Ancient Demise wants to finish other dev maps as well.

So, we could definitely use a site, where we can share these.

It looks really really great, cant wait to play it

Well done
You have to understand the code of duty and honor that rules those who pilot these engines of destruction. Placing such an awesome weapon in the hands of an individual implies a similar gesture of trust

One reason the cancellation of the svantovit, Odin and Swift Wind is a tragedy...
