    After installing 7zip, right click on your map and press Add to archive..

    The quickload for players has to be bz2, it's a valve thing I guess.

    Either way everyone who DL's your map ahead of time can also open it with any zip program so might as well stick to one format.

    I use PeaZip, also a free program that can do zip and 7z

    The upload to the redirect server on this site doesn't seem to work for regular .bsp :p

    Actually, it's a compressed file that the game knows how to open...i.e. you download the bz2 and the game is smart enough to unzip it and let you play.
