The Coop+ Altitude server is one of the most used Coop servers in Altitude. It runs on a google compute VM in the central United States. The
alti+server code implementes a number of features when lends itself to serving
coop, such as:
Moderators can run
alti+server record engine is reasonably sophisticated. It provides more
feedback than most during game plan, and makes intellegent decisions on what and
who helped complete a map. Some of the features are:
alti+serverdisplays the top 5 records as they are passed. This is especially helpful to teams trying to break into the top 5; it let's them know how close they are. Please keep in mind that these message may suffer from lag, and are not 100% on-time. They generally show up on your screen within a second of their actual occurance. So, it is not unheard of for a base to be bombed right after a 5th place message is displayed, and for you to find that you did, indead, grab 5th place.
alti+servercan store a consistant name for accounts, and multiple accounts can be linked. These names are pulled from Ladder's AKA, see the PlaneBall ranked/about page for more information on
@akanames. If you need to link additional names, or wish to change your AKA name, please contact Van in game or on the forums. There is no reason for the Altitude community to keep two divergent sets of account linkages, and so this server defers to the Ladder system. After the account is updated, you can contact biell in-game, or via forums and he will run a re-sync. Or, you can wait for a periodic resync to occur. when your name is attached to a record on Coop+, it uses this name, regardless of which of your accounts are used, and what your nickname happens to be right now. So, if you are temporarily loaned out to a new clan for a particular tournament, you don't have to worry about immortalizing that in a Coop+ record.
…. Sometimes a player's contribution is so miniscule, that it will not even be mentioned. A good example of this is
tbd_coop_tunnelwhich is a rush map. If you didn't bomb the base at least once, you didn't help complete the map, and won't be listed in the record.
