    Iiiiiiiiit's heeeeerrreeeeeee. The 4th Annual Foolsday Joke map gameday! A little late, so you got like 2 weeks to do something, but don't worry! We'll grab stuff from last year... and the year before that... and the year before that...

    If you guys would like, we can have the maps up on rotation for all of April 1st on the US server and the EU server. I will be able to host some events during the day, but not ALL day. I will, however, be available all day if any major issues occur. Depends on what you'd guys like, so let me know. If you have the ability to change maps and manage the server, awesome, you're welcome to do so. Just let me know when you're free.

    Where:
    TF2Maps.net Official US Server: 70.42.74.31:27015
    TF2Maps.net Official EU Server: 91.121.155.109:27015
    Gameday Host: Fr0z3nR + You!


    When:
    Well, whenever really. We'll have the maps up all day and I'll do various 'announcements' to bring people if numbers dwindle. What time works for you guys for the 'big' event?

    Map Packs: GRAB EM ALL!
    The 1st Year's Maps (.rar)
    The 2nd Year's Maps (.rar)
    The 3rd Year's Maps (.rar)

    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 of our onsite hosting, OR a DROPBOX url. Please no mediafire or megaupload or anything besides our site hosting or Dropbox.
    __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 (BEWARE! The RTV will be enabled!)

    This years rotation:

    I just noticed you guys are still using my event copypasta that mentions megaupload, despite that site being dead for several years.

    I mean, those grammatical mistakes haven't been fixed in four years.

    The megaupload bit I added in myself today. I just used it as an example of what not use because I'm silly.

    Okay fine.

    I copied it from last years Event stuff Harribo wrote. If there's anything about it, he did it!

    I'M INNOCENT, I SWEAR!

    The wiki needs more custom map love in general. Filling it with joke maps is an excellent idea that will surely only serve to strengthen relations between our community and theirs.

    Yes.

    Well, they kind of pulled down ours (and other communities) wiki pages as to not show favouritism because 1-2 trade-community admins got too huffy.

    I'm not happy with them, and totally keep meaning to talk to them again about putting ours back up.

    Got something great planned for this. But darn, editing fully detailed maps strains my pre 2000 system :D

    hence the map's name, insomniaplusboredom
