I think it took a few years of experimenting to try and find a balanced and acceptable mappool for Hirnlos, the current one is near perfect, if you ask me, and replacing/adding too many exotic maps as mETLA put it would ruin it. Hirnlos isn't Hirnschlag. Goldrush and Radar are staple maps of ET, removing them would be a huge mistake to be honest, especially Radar for tc_base.

Here's what I'd do if there should be a change:

1. adlernest
2. goldrush_te
3. frostbite
4. braundorf_final -> braundorf_b4 (already mentioned in December)
5. missile_b4
6. oasis sw
7. bremen_b3
8. radar
9. Special Delivery TE -> Dubrovnik (even some cups had it back in the day, and adds some "exoticism") or tc_base. I hate delivery :D
10. supply


It might have taken few years but times have changed and it sits alot of times empty/dead. I think map changes are necessery to get people intrested in it again.

Adding exotic maps has been tried multiple times, and it never worked. If you think the server is empty a lot of the times now, just wait when you'd add in some of those jaymod maps mentioned. Most of Hirnlos' playerbase aren't interested in those maps, in fact the server was dead for months in 2015 and 2016 and only recently had a kind of revival. I'm pretty sure if you do any hardcore changes now you'll ruin the "ecosystem" and the same will happen. The tiny playerbase that would prefer these exotic maps are probably more suited for NoQuarter, ETPub or Jaymod servers (or Hirntot), and there is always HBC, but Hirnlos is pretty much the only public server other than AlterNBS for the "pros" to play "pro" maps (yes, Radar counts). Replace/remove too many for "fun" maps and a decline in the playerbase is guaranteed.

I mentioned Dubrovnik as a trade-off so even the small minority of players who prefer more exotic maps would be satisfied with a change, as Dubrovnik is a map even some of the pros like/liked. And sp_delivery_te is shit.

Having spoke with a few people on server about current hirnlos maps (which is a good selection of maps btw) a few people would like to see a change or two to the rotation.

Here are a few maps I think would be good for the los server based on size and activity of the server. To add in or replace any maps as you see fit.

(The links I give to maps may or may not be the best/final version of the map).

1944 Cherbourg - I vaguely remember playing this map a few years ago (can't remember what server) and I seem to remember it was a decent map? Maybe some of you know it better.
Dubrovnik - A nice little map that can be fun
El Kef - Only played it a few times but it seems quite a nifty map
Marrakech - Used to play this on hirnschlag quite a lot, had some good games on it
TC Base - posted on behalf of another player who requested this, it's a map I also like though.

Thanks for looking and considering :mrgreen:


If these maps not wanted for hirnlos, could they be put on hirnschlag? It's only usually bots on there but you never know, a few new maps might bring players back there. Most of the old regulars currently playing on aos which is a busyish server but the maps are godawful.

On los no need for radar as someone said. I'd also remove goldrush, it's a different version sure but still...oasis is different enough to be fun but would be my next choice for change.

Of my suggestions it looks like the less 'exotic' maps are Dubrovnik and TC Base. Both would be popular additions imo. If Marrakech is given a go I'm sure players would like it, it's easy enough to learn the map and the gameplay is quite good from low numbers to high.

And if you do add Dubrovnik, also add the script by Harlekin to prevent roof camping:

Dubrovnik is too small map for such server imo.

Good point. Another option could be Snatch3, but it's probably too big, so really only leaves tc_base as an alternative IMO.

I'm still pushing airfield assault :) Base would be quite ok.
