I've set up a ManiaHost on my server, first of all it's just a great soft!
Just few things are missing I think, for example, enable the user to choose between a united or a nation dedicated will be nice.

It will nice too if we can set a maximal rent duration. I'd like to provide dedicated for 3-4 days max. (I can't provide dedicated for 500c/month :lol: )
