Like jailbreak or not everyone can agree the fact that a gamemode should get updated at 1 point, jb is legit stuck in 2 map rotations (Mlcastle and hop), the map named jailfort is full of bugs and exploits, wip map is a map that no one likes so it does not get chosen and we also have 3 versions of famous for no reason. We have old plugins that can be updated and can remove rules such as deadtalking and many exploits. We were promised an update "until Sunday" but that was a month ago and it was promised cause a regular named Bambi asked "how much for a jb update" and he gave 4x the price that was asked which is 200$ its been almost 2 years maybe more since jb had any updates if you don't count remakes of maps (hop,snowday and famous) something should be done for this cause people will lose interest for jb.

Also, I know for a fact that there was a test for the update and it did not go well when a specific lr was chosen, but everything else was working perfectly why not just disable it, or not add it at all.

You’re talking about the one where everyone is in a tank. Not hard to remove I think and the overall test with Kevin on the maps worked well. The plugin can wait since what we have is fine ifs just the new one is a lot better. But the maps is really what not only important, but easy as well

Yes that is what I am talking about, I don't think its hard cause like atm we have commit rockers whatever the name is disabled before you could do it

I can also confirm that vsh works a lot better than I expected it to work on jb maps (from experience with the test server). And I think the minigame that was all bugged out was called mechanical mercenaries?

Ait I'm joining in on the conversation since the way this is being handled makes my spine chill. I haven't played on the jailbreak server in like 6 months, nor was I ever a regular on it. But when it comes to jailbreak maps I have experience. Tf2 gamemodes right now are rarely updated, especially since the devs kinda abandoned tf2 a while ago making content creators lose interest. I can say from experience that jailbreak is one of the more addictive and popular gamemode on tf2 right now. But popular gamemodes need innovation. I'll give my take on every suggestion in @Semicolon backslash 's post.

https://www.panda-community.com/threads/bootcamp-does-an-exist.19678/ -jb_bootcamp AND https://www.panda-community.com/threads/a-new-jb-map-that-is-too-epic-so-it-wont-get-added.19094/ -jb_orange

I love that there is an active community member that makes maps. Which is why I would definitely to test/add one of 'em. Bootcamp is awesome. It has a nice layout, it's still getting updated regularly, the minigames are fine and I think it's just something genuine for the Panda Community. We shouldn't just ignore these maps. Semicolon has put a lot of effort in it and IMO the map is fairly decent. Now for Orange, I'm not a big fan. It reminds me of jb_complex which is a good map, but is very bland. Currently, I think the same applies for orange. This can be fixed though.

https://www.panda-community.com/threads/me-have-another-suggestion-yes-yes.19675/ -removal of jailfort
Jailfort is a TERRIBLE map. It's heavily bugged and the mario kart bridge can easily be abused by RED's. Nothing more to add.

https://www.panda-community.com/threads/jailbreak-vsh-lr.18658/ -vsh lr and new plugin
No take on this. Haven't tested it but I'm usually not a big fan of new plugins. Especially for jailbreak because people are used to how the plugin works right now.

https://www.panda-community.com/threads/new-maps-for-jailbreak.18297/ -new maps in general
Yeah, very low chance of this happening. Though there are maps being suggested that are very good which leads me to the next suggestion:

https://www.panda-community.com/threads/my-jailbreak-map.17803/ -district AND https://www.panda-community.com/threads/jb_minecraft_daylight.16550/ -mc daylight
These maps are great. It's a shame these 2 haven't been added yet. District is unique and a gorgeous map. Mc Daylight is just a simple yet effective map. It definitely beats its predecessors.

https://www.panda-community.com/threads/thread-o-maps-v2.17216/ -snowday v9 and a chretien fix
Updated maps are almost always better. Can't say anything on these though as I haven't tried them.

https://www.panda-community.com/threads/hey-look-more-jb-related-things.17929/ -supermario AND https://www.panda-community.com/threads/jail_snowballsv20_opst.17911/ -snowballs (pls no add)
I dislike both. Supermario is tiny and snowballs is just ugly. Wouldn't add.

https://www.panda-community.com/threads/removal-of-jb-maps.17899/ -removal of wip and casuarina AND
https://www.panda-community.com/threads/thread-o-suggestions.17078/ -a bunch of suggestions AND https://www.panda-community.com/threads/a-way-to-possibly-prevent-illegal-force-wardening.16612/ -title

Would let the community decide. I literally have too little experience on your servers to say something about these.

Hope this incredibly long post helped. I know that I'm not quite as relevant as other community members but I just hope this will be re-looked at and that hopefully some changes will finally be made.

FYI I’m a JB admin
I just wanna day
We already know what’s being added to jb
That’s been discussed and maps and plugins were tested


It’s the fact that Kevin made a promise to do this 7 weeks ago and hasn’t

Kevin is doing a server migration rn (idk what that means exactly but it's important), after which he'll look into suggestions. So I think we can hope for some major activity in the coming weeks/months
