What FF needs the most at the moment...

So, I got to thinking. What is it that FF needs the most? Do we need maps? Do we need videos? Do we need big manly men?

I've got a lot of spare time, or at least a sporadic schedule now that my job has me coming in randomly, and I'm curious as to what everyone thinks FF needs the most. This is besides 2.0, of course.

So, think we need some macho pictures of men? That'd be pretty sweet. Probably sweeter than maps or videos.

I think we need
(1) mappers, and
(2) character modelers and animators
the most atm.

But, more coders and texture artists would be great as well.

Maps are a can-do. Official? Not a can-do.

Any specific types of maps? Fun/hunted style? AVD style? CTF? Other?

Yeah, I haven't made maps in a few years, and I've only made one for source :\. I'll have to start back up.

I'd start with a "fun" map. I'd love to see more AvD maps, but starting on one of those is masochistic.

More Publicity
Less bugs
More Fps
More official maps
Leagues

But i kinda understand. Every game its released comes with a multi player mode, steam also provides a lot of free modes for who has hl2 so isn't anymore only cs/dod/tfc , and the several fortress modes too doesn´t help. Its kinda sad, I stop playing tfc one year ago cuse, the community disapeard and was not very exciting playing with boots or playing with noobs who only wanted to dm in middle map, when FF came out i was very excited, buy a new pc and hl2 for it and i see that theres more players in TFC and i´m not counting wit boots than in FF lol...Now its common that when i want to play i join an empty server.. and wait for players to join what is a lot of excitement. But mainly feel bad for the developers

A soldier death match ladder. Much easier to get people playing than a full clan ladder /league, helps create a mini community, helps create heroes and thus something for other players to aspire to.

Make the ladder ff run, have a Euro and Americas ladder on the same site, I recon there are plenty of people that would hep you set it up so it wouldn't take up too much of your time, I know I would happy help with the admin side.

lol @ Fortress Forever Heroes...hope it doesn't bring elitism, it's a fine line...you want experienced players to help the new people, but new people don't always like/want the help from the experienced players, they see them as smug and over zealous.

Training Mode is what we need, we needed it 2 months ago, we'll need it 2 months from now when it finally gets added.

Avanti
Warpath
2fort
Schtop

We need an advertising campaign. Throw a donation button up on the site, no reason to feel cheap about doing it, it's pretty clear this mod has a chance, PC Gamer thinks so. Bring in the money, get more face time on web sites/magazines/bill boards/tatoo's/etc.

And a time machine would help.

Easier way to go down ladders. I seem to die from fall damage more than anything...

The more textures you have, the higher the system requirements. That is one reason why the TFC community has not adopted FF - they do not want to buy new equipment.

The FF devs need to unleash the HW guy - right now he is a freaking whimp, panzy a$$.

Noobs need a easy class to play when they first start. In TFC that was engineer and HW guy. Now its just engineer. Soem servers limit how many engineers can play, so noobs are left with nothing.

Give the noobs a class the can point and click - the rest will come in time. Bring back the HW for the noobs sake.
