    Rules for Joke Map Submitters:
    • No serious maps for actual testing
    The map must be playable. This means fully functional objective system, spawns, and playable. I'l be running through the maps beforehand so dont just make dumb and unplayable. Make them dumb, unplayable AND FUN
    __Do not rename a bsp after compile. The vmf must be renamed before compile.
    Filename must be all lowercase. (ctf_example_a1.bsp, not CTF_Example_A1.bsp)
    __Our Linux servers don't work with uppercase names.
    Map may not use a point_servercommand to alter any variables. (Say in the PM if you would like me to disable crits/change the gravity etc)

    Submission Format:
    Send me a PM (I want the maps to be a surprise) with the following:
    • With the title: Joke Map Submission
    • Exact Map Filename (ctf_example_a4)
    • TF2Maps.net file ID number, OR url to offsite download.
    __BZ2 compressed files are greatly appreciated to save me time.
    __May not be a hosting site like mega-upload (wait times, codes, excessive ads, etc).
    If you are a donator with upload abilities, please say if you have already uploaded the map.

    Information
    • First come first serve, no set timelimit on the event so submit those maps
    • Maps will get switched out of if boring

    The rules laid down in Tech's Contest thread do not need to be abided by to be a part of this, infact i strongly suggust not using the af_ prefix. Any ones we played last year i still have, if you've updated any from then please mention so in the PM

    I'm making a map for this. It will make the source engine do something it was never designed to do.

    Good one! But in all seriousness, it's something I personally wish that they would do for real in a game. I am just extrapolating this to the point of getting a gimmick for my map.

    Don't worry, my map won't be remembered for the gameplay. Just focus on something with "interesting" gameplay.

    I'm worried mine is too dumb, and not fun. But I guess we'll see now won't we?

    I've been, no joke*, working on this for the past year on and off. I've put a LOT of work into updating it...
