Ultimate Map Chooser (UMC for short) is a Sourcemod plugin that is designed to be a more complex/robust mapchooser feature for various Source-based game servers. While it has all the standard map voting items (rtv, nominate, etc.) it also has some complexity in that you can set special conditions (such as player thresholds) for certain maps, which can help introduce some maps when a server is more full or allow users to pick ones based on map prefix, gamemode, and other such things. The plugin runs off of a core module and uses several other modules to add voting features and/or advanced conditions for a map to show up in a vote for users.
Games currently supported by UMC:
- ZPS (3.0.9a is the currently supported version as of 12/16/2018)
- Nuclear Dawn
- Hidden: Source
Other games not listed here may be supported by UMC provided that they are using some of the generic cvars and methods for Source-base games (such as mp_timelimit or round_end) that the other games listed above utilize. If they do not, then it will be necessary to add in the cvars/methods used to determine round time and round wins/losses. For any issues with currently supported games come up or if there is a Source-based game that can utilize Sourcemod but is not supported by UMC, please create an issue ticket on Github.
The version of UMC found here was based on Steell's original plugin (3.4.5) and Powerlord's dev version (3.4.6-dev) of UMC. The information in this wiki will mostly be a copy of the original wiki with some updates and/or combined pages for convenience purposes.
