Christmas Bash

I'm toying with the idea of putting together a casual 24/7 server around Christmas time, sort of like a bash but without pressure on JCSers to deliver only their best stuff.

I was originally going to make a list composed fully of holiday themed levels, but after scouring J2O I've barely found enough levels that were good enough to go on a list, so I'm considering several options:
  • convert some old classic levels to give them a Christmas feel
  • simply add some crowd pleasers to the existing list
  • disregard the Christmas theme entirely
Thoughts/ideas/suggestions?

A mix of A and B sound nice, put in some classics that work well for events like this and if there are any that would not take a lot of effort to make a little winter-ish (maybe just adding a snow event could be enough) do that as a little bonus.

Alternately a Christmas mutator that adds some winter touches to weapons, et cetera could be nice as well.

I'd be down play in this! It'd be a good test of this new phone's WiFi capabilities. Maybe it'll be more stable than my standard connection! xD

I'm up for some casual play with a twist during the holidays.

This reminds me of Nimrod's Xmas server which was ambitious but successful enough. https://www.jazz2online.com/jcf/showthread.php?t=11851

I'd say it's okay to use regular old favorites as well as recent event sized levels (such as in Total Annihilation 2) with a mutator that adds christmassy effects to the rabbits, or swaps some palettes. Or something.

I support this idea! Sounds really cool.
I'm quite surprised about the ammount of decent snowy multiplayer maps.
And mixing up some goldies with a snowy theme would be epic.
Snowy Semi perhaps?

Christmas themed levels would be cool but I would appreciate any kind of levels really. It'll be fun either way
