first Motd not map specific
I have set up my server so that on every map change I get a motd that is specific to that map, I have no problem with that.

My issue is when the server first starts up, I want to be able to have a map specific motd even if I choose a different map than the first one in mapcycle.txt.

Is there a way to do that, I do not mind if I have to create a plugin as long as I get pointed in the right direction.

Add it to your start line?
Good answer and would work well if I was going to start at a specific map, but I typically start the gui and look through the map list to see what map takes my fancy, I didn't want to have to edit it each time I choose a different starting map, obviously if I add a new map I create another map config for that, so that isn't the issue.

Intially I was hoping that the map config would do all the work, however it seems that when the server first starts up the initial motd is a static file, whether it be motd.txt or called something else, even if I could use some code to dictate the contents of it depending on what map I choose I would be happy.

Maybe it is one of those things that require a custom plugin to get around.
