Welcome to the resurfed FAQ, which will hopefully answer all questions and serve as a guide to all resurfed server plugins.
What is skillsurf?
To start, surfing involves using strafe keys and a higher airaccel on servers to move quickly through surf maps. For a comprehensive tutorial on surfing, check out streebee's surf tutorial here. For those that have some experience in combat surf, this is quite different in that there is no fragging involved. The maps in rotation vary in difficulty from tiers 1-6, and record your completion times to be stored in our database and used in our leaderboard.
How do I rank up?
By completing stages, maps, and bonuses on our servers, you gain points based on their difficulty. Additionally, improving your time for specific map ranks will gain extra points (see /mi in game for details). Improving your surf capabilities in order to complete maps more quickly, or complete more difficult maps, will grant points and increase your rank.
What other features are on this server?
• A bunnyhop plugin that allows players to hold their jump key to conserve speed.
• A plugin restricting movespeed on classes so surfing as scout is the same as soldier.
• Weapon restrictions so nobody has to listen to 20 frying pans.
Is surfing in tf2 different from css or csgo?
In essence, no. There are slight discrepancies such as ground acceleration, run speed, and hitboxes, but surfing skill in one game easily transfers to another.
How do I report abuse?
The report function can be used to report players for violating our rules. This can be done on the server through /report, or through a browser by visiting our sourcebans page. Here you will be asked to list the player's information, what they are doing wrong and what server they were on when breaking the rules. There is also an option to submit a demo of the player, which can be recorded with the record command in console or on our STV website which uploads a demo of each map cycle on every server. submitting demos can help the admin team see what the player has been doing.
What are the benefits of donating?
Currently, by donating a minimum of $10, players gain access to our VIP bot, controlled with /replays, and our Elite (rank 50 or better)/VIP server. Additionally, we have a paint and makezone command. +sm_paint allows players to draw client-side beams for surf assistance. /makezone is used to create custom checkpoints for checking route times outside of the maps' existing checkpoints (requires timer OFF). Players can donate additional amounts to set customizable tags and names with sm_settag, sm_setname and sm_setchat.
I have another question not answered by this post!
Please feel free to contact any admin or mod on the servers, create a thread on this forum, or join our discord and post it there for live feedback. All are welcome!
