Map Name Changes

Why do all fortress forever maps start with "ff_" instead of something that shows their gametype like in counterstrike? We could use "ctf_" for capture the flag, "and_" for attack and defend, and tc_ for territorial control. So 2fort would be "ctf_2fort". Seems like it would be something that would make it easier for new players/ people returning to remember which maps are which.

I'd prefer it to not have a prefix at all ;) it's ugly

I'd like to get rid of the ff_whatever. We already know we're playing fortress forever, thanks.

That being said, though, now that basically every map out of hundreds and hundreds has the ff_ prefix, making changes to that would confuse the fuck out of everyone. Leave it as is.

I asked this before release. From what I remember, ff_ is to distinguish from other games.

If you Google, for example, "ff_2fort", you will get the FF version. If you try "ctf_2fort" or just "2fort", not so much.

But if FF had a place where users could upload maps similarly to fpsbanana but hosting them here, you would rarely need to google a map.

Correction: It might not be in the works. It might be in the works after 2.42 is released, though.

You know what would be nice, ricey?

If we could upload ff_vidars to that map hosting site.

Just saying.
